This has surely been brought up before, but what does everybody consider reasonable when it comes to response time to your trading conversations? I'm still fairly new to non IP/local trades and want some opinions. Here are a couple situations that have happened to me recently: 1. I think I have a trade all wrapped up with person A then they just go silent, no response to messages. Person B comes along seeing my ISO:FT post and is interested in what person A wanted, I let person B know person A has priority and he understands. After 4 days of no response from person A I seal a deal with person B and we both are happy. Well, a couple days later person A finally gets back to me and upon finding out I traded what he had wanted gets all snippy acting like we already had a deal in place and I screwed him. Wasn't 4 days without an answer enough to wait since I wasn't aware of anything that may have held him up? (funeral, sickness, etc) 2. People just not getting back in general. I'll think I have a trade in place, or somebody asks me to let them know when I get something they are after and I just never hear from them again though they are active in the forums. Whenever I decide I'm not interested in a trade or something changed then I at least let the person know. I will say though that for the most part everybody has been very cool and generous with extras!
