Yes, I will ignore sellers without a very strong rating. In fact there is a guy with only two feedbacks with one for sale, but I ignore those. For me people with zero or low feedbacks can do some buying first and develop a good history.
I might (still unlikely) consider someone with low feedbacks, but who has a strong familiar presence in the forum discussions. Lots of buyer/sellers never contribute anything in the photography/gear discussions.
I was about to ask .. about seling on FM lol.. I just signed up (new member)
I hate purposely looking for threads to participate in just to sell .. but I get that no one wants to buy from a guy with 1 post
so being new to fm.. seems to me you have to pay a membership fee to sell?
