    Hmmmmm....very confusing!!!!  ;)  I have just been back into the other guy's page where I mistakenly wrote on his wall instead of sending a message but I can't see any means of deleting it.  No black crosses anywhere and no cog icon like you get when you're editing a post.

    Any ideas?

    On the subject of using the profile page for sales feedback posts, it seems to me that it is far too easy to abuse.  I agree it would be less work than the current list compiling, but at least that is done in full public gaze, which makes it far harder to abuse.  Also remember the face palm wars !
    In what way could you see it being abused? I can only see two real scenarios

    1. Somebody who isn't happy gives somebody else a slagging off (in which case it is a Mod thing in exactly the same way as anywhere else on the site), or

    2. A friend adds feedback just to make them look better or somebody opens a second account to do the same for themself. Which the current system is open to, of course.

    Other than that, I can't think of anything? :)

    OK, thanks to the genius of @ChrisMusic I have successfully deleted the message I wrote on someone's wall by mistake!!!!  As it happens it was incredibly easy to undo once Chris explained it.  Simply hover the cursor over the message you've put on someone's wall in error, a X will appear in the top right of the post, click the X and a box will appear asking if you are sure you want to go ahead and delete.  Click 'OK' and it's gone. 

    The man deserves a medal......!

    The PM method does seem a little illogical to me.

    On other fora there is usually just a PM link at the bottom of the posted box along with your "quote" etc.

    I think it makes sense @Neil I'm PMing a user, so I find the users page to send them a message.

    The quote/LOL/Wow!/Wisdom/Facebook/Twitter buttons are about that specific post, so are next to the post.

    Makes sense to me to keep that separate.

    Well at least I know how it all works now.  :)

    Genius idea Jooky.

    If we could agree on a simple format, such as:
    Name bought from/sold me/traded guitar/amp/pedal +1

    Then you get a bit more information than the current thread

    Selling 3 Les Pauls is a bit different to buy 3 packs of strings, yet in the current system both would be +3
    Good point, be more useful to see the split between buys and sells.

    I've got all the existing numbers up-to-date in a spreadsheet, so could do an initial post on each person's page to show what they are carrying forward too, so at least that history wouldn't be lost.

    @Monquixote @Digitalscream @TTony Chaps - would this be a runner?

    Doesn't seem to need any development other than perhaps changing the Activity title and clearing what is already there?
    Is this still happening? Still happy to help update a chunk.

    Given one of the other discussions currently pointing out that people, maybe new members, are posting private information on publicly available activity / profile / wall pages, it seems appropriate to bump this again.

    An active discussion here will keep the issue in the public eye for a while again.  It will give people an opportunity to remove any inappropriate posts too.

    We (as in MQ) updated the wall section last night - so it's pretty well signposted now that anything that gets posted on the wall section is open for public viewing.  
    Having trouble posting images here?  This might help.
