34 (who?)
WELL LIKE I HAD SUSPECTED in my recent auction the bid wasn't serious, so I figured I may as well make a journal to compile a list of names to be wary of in the adopt community. I genuinely hope this doesn't have frequent additions, but I want to make sure that what happened to me doesn't happen to anyone else.

As I'd like this to get the best use possible, if you have anyone you think should be added to the list you can share with me the info, but you must provide proof as I don't want cases of he-said she-said. I'll only add names if I'm 100% certain they deserve to be added, and anyone added is free to contest it for removal. lol i hope this is more helpful than dramaful i know it has such a high potential for drama but okay with great power comes great responsibility peter parker

Before anyone is added to this list I will either ask the informer to note them (if it's a personal thing) or I will not them myself if that is better suited to give them a chance to right whatever wrong they did. However if there is no response after 3 days, I will add the name here.

If your name is ever added feel free to note me and we can work out what happened, after which I will remove your name.

I'm pretty sure you should have known.
I mean just look at the account, it was empty, and not active.

I like to take people for their word. Even if I was highly suspicious, I wasn't going to brush someone off over an assumption.

It might also be worth making rules about people backing out of their bids. It's unfair to you and to the person who has bowed out of the bidding. Some people incite bid wars just to incite bid wars

I guess I've had a similar experience with someone asking to buy an adopt then just never sending the payment and ignoring me
same person tried like a half year later to buy another one of my adopts and I asked if s/he still wanted to buy the old one and got ignored yet again, but the account is still active, also I always see people complaining on their profile about s/he needing to pay for adopts
things like that pisses me off
