It must be terribly disheartening for a seller to see they have twelve replies to their listing when all twelve of them are something along the lines of "Lovely cozzie, it will sell in no time."

If you would like to compliment the seller on the costume, please feel free to send a PM.

If you are not interested in buying the cozzie, then DO NOT REPLY to the thread.

Replies that do not indicate interest in purchasing the listed cozzie will be removed. Repeat offenders will have administrative action taken against them. This means possible bannings.

this is so true well said but it is also nice to get others feedback aswell some
times so perhaps there should be a different section for this

Hi,
Re ^^ comment from Freestylefreak it just slows down the boards and it takes longer for people to search for costumes if there are a lot of pointless replies to a costume for sale.
I agree it is nice to encourage the person who is selling the costume by saying how nice it is but there are other ways of doing this other than flooding the "for sale" boards.

In agreement with the last comment it is very daunting when you are new to a site and aren't sure what's right or wrong. Thanks again for the info.

as a new member to the dance site i have found it brilliant looking at all the costumes for sale.the only down fall is some of the sellers state -quick sale wanted but they dont get back to you. new members cant private message them and unless they reply to you,so mean while you lose out on the costume that you have chosen.its very frustrating as it only takes 3days to get a costume sent by recorded delivery and sent back if not suitable.i have read the comments and it is a bit silly to put nice cossie etc.you have to skip them all.

^^ BoogieBabe10

comment on boards such as the well wishes boards; congrats, good luck, get well soon, happy birthday ect.
or you can comment any of the solos boards where members post their new suits(:

there are many things you can comment just dont do it on the for sale boards if your not actually interested in buying a new suit(s)

how do they do that? it is not made clear any where on this site what you have to do with your twenty comments or where they have to be? I have spent a fortune on a costume on this site which proves I am serious. now all I wish to do is sell the old costume. I am finding this very frustrating doing what I was told to do then finding posts saying I will be banned for this? it should really be made clear to new members what is expected and not have contradictory directions!

Hi

^ you can reply to anything on the whole site - even under different boards such as advice , ballet etc to gain your 20 comments !

Only comments on the *costumes for sale* section are not allowed

I agree that it us not clear to new members where they need to post comments to become full members, it is extreamly frustrating when you are trying to become a full member so you can pm to purchase a suit and you are been banned or acused of star farming.
Thanks for the info on where the comments are supposed to be made :)
