Do you check the new Rate and Review Forum?
before finalizing a trade?
Some (newbies) may not be familiar with the search feature on the forum.
Just go to the 'search' box immediately following the list of posts, and type in the member's name, (make sure the search is for 'this forum') and hit search.
This is a good feature, that might save some from being disappointed with a trade, or sending out plants for postage, only to find out the postage will never be reimbursed.
