It seems that some members are having a little trouble when they submit feedback for an MP transaction. The issue has been narrowed down to completing the Deal URL section of the feed back form. This is not required and by not filling in this section, everyone had been able to submit their feedback. So if you get an "OOPS" alert when you submit your feedback, go back and check to see if you filled this section out and delete the info.

I've done that dozens of times and still get the oops message. One day, it works great. Next time it won't work for a week or more, reasons unknown. I haven't been able to consistently leave feedback for almost a year now, system problems are now starting to outpace my memory of transactions....

This used to happen to me quite often even though I have never entered a Deal URL…What seemed to fix it was to always add an emoji (like a thumbs-up) in my comments section box after my text string & I haven’t hit the “Oops” error ever since doing it this way.

Tried leaving feed a k several times last night and it gets errored. It keeps saying that I need to leave comments. Problem is….I left both brief title and comments and it still errors. Will try adding an emoji like someone mentioned…hopefully it works ??

I've never encountered an error with feedback, but I've also only done it from my windows laptop. Are you guys having issues working from phones or tablets? If so, that may be related and give Jen something tangible to look into, maybe?

The IT stuff here is way above my pay grade, but good data and background info helps troubleshooting of all types.

The only times I’ve had a problem leaving feedback was while using my not so smart phone. Clicking on the gear icon seems to resolve the problem. HOWEVER it only worked once I completely backed out of the Feedback page and started all over again.
Hope this helps

I had trouble today with my not so smart brain .. But I re-read Tac's post and finally figured it out .. Maybe I won't get the hammer for calling "BS" .. Sometimes it goes right over my head .. Or right thru that empty place between my ears

I gave up on expecting feedback around here, sad to say.

Even when I leave prompt feedback for someone and they promise to reciprocate, often it never happens.

Not going to keep asking for it, after someone breaks their word and blows it off, although I used to petition for it.

Maybe it's merely technical difficulties, but they don't say, one way or the other.

One of the Four Agreements is:
"Don't take it personally"
... so, I don't. 😐

I’d guess 25-30% of my transactions have resulted in feedback not being left for me. I don’t worry about it too much. It’s not a badge of honor. Once you have 5 positive FB left (assuming 100% rating), then no worries.

I do my best to leave positive FB the minute I get paid or the minute I open an incoming box. I actually screwed this up myself this week when I got a "happy" PM from the buyer and realized I had not left him FB when his check came. My bad, 100%.

Having said that, yeah I am usually pretty good (or at least try) on always giving FB. The ratio to received FB is lower, but that is OK for me. To HR's point, I think leaving good FB (when deserved of course) for newer members to build up their own "street creds" here is important.

Feedback Workaround…

I discovered that….when I am leaving feedback and get an error (most of the time) that the “Gear Shaped Logo” in the Feedback icon menu needs to be clicked.

It looks like a “Settings Icon” that is found in most of the other applications.

I haven’t left feedback in the last few weeks and I can’t remember if it fails when it is “lit” (the gear appears orange) or when it is “unlit” (appears black).

Either way….When I get a “OOPS”, I go back and click that “Gear Icon” and it sends out the feedback successfully 👍

I use a Mac laptop. Tried for quite awhile to leave feedback every which way thru the Safari browser (recently updated). Got the " OOPS" every time. Logged out of here and quit Safari. Opened Firefox and logged back in here. Feedback worked 1st time using the cut and paste method described above. Next time thats what i will try first.

Where can I post a “BUYER BEWARE”/bad seller review?
Wasn’t on FAL marketplace, but I’m sure he is a member here too and everyone should know who he is for their own future protection.

Maybe I'm just a weirdo....okay, I'm a weirdo....but as the new kid, I didn't know it was ill advised and have put the URL on all 5 of the reviews I have left for folks (including one today). I've never gotten the "ooops" and used the "htttps" link to the sale thread. Has not been a problem at all for me.

Same thing here ! It pisses me off when you do your best To make the seller or buyer happy and get nothing back ! And it’s like begging to get a freaking feedback you deserve ! I’ll tell you what ! Someone doesn’t appreciate your effort (not taking it personal) then it is what it is ,, to me I won’t even think about buying anything from him again no matter what he’s selling !
maybe I’m wrong ! But it’s the way I look at it .. here or on any other sites.

I get the oops message and cannot leave feedback, even when I don't put anything in the URL section.
What am I doing wrong?

Never mind. I figured out what I was doing wrong.
