mattwnz: Normally when you buy on an auction site, you rely on a good level of feedback. If someone has 0 feedback, then people are taking quite a big risk unless they use something like safetrader. It is part of the problem with a new auction site. I recall reading somewhere that some new auction site was trying to get feedback from other auction sites transferred, as they beleived the owner of the account owned that information and not the auction site
How would you be able to prove to the new site that you were the same user as on the other site? Having the same username wouldn't prove anything.
