Agreed!  And if you feel like something isn't right, REPORT THE VENDOR / THEIR LISTINGS on SR! 

Yep, that is very good advice, homertortoise.  +1

If all you need is to get some transactions under your belt so you don't have to FE and you can't find a vendor offering the same product WITHOUT requiring people to FE, then you can get some transactions by doing some really cheap transactions on SR with the cheap lottery purchases, or there's a vendor selling virtual hugs, or advice, or fortune cookie things.

Great!  Sorry I couldn't be more specific than that ... I'm glad you were able to find it!

This would definitely take a backseat to fixing the problems some people are experiencing with withdrawals / deposits.  Also, you should never be posting any kind of sensitive info here on the forums.

You never have to FE.  There are PLENTY of awesome vendors who do not require buyers to FE.  Those are the vendors you should be using.

When people go outside of the escrow system, there is nothing we can do to protect them.  It's always a risky, risky thing to do.

This is why we emphasize the importance of DOING YOUR RESEARCH before using a vendor.  It's also why we say OVER AND OVER AGAIN NEVER TO FINALIZE EARLY!

There is nothing anyone can do to help you when you make the decision to go outside of the escrow system to finalize early.

This is an issue with blockchain - only they can help you with it.  This has nothing to do with Silk Road.

Are you fucking serious?  You are spamming this bullshit and yet the entire problem arose when you CHOSE to go outside of the escrow system to finalize early for a vendor that other people were having problems with.

The vendor feedback score is based on feedback from buyers - it is NOT assigned by SR itself. 

Why were funds let go?  BECAUSE YOU CHOSE TO FINALIZE EARLY.  That's what FINALIZING EARLY means -- it means you are choosing to leave the escrow system and pay a vendor before you receive anything. 

We warn against this EVERYWHERE.

Get a grip - you lost money, and that sucks, yes, but it's not SR's fault.  The escrow system is in place FOR A REASON -- TO PROTECT BUYERS.

Yes, some people's accounts are having problems.  We've let DPR and the admins know several times since yesterday morning and are just waiting to hear back.

It could be that they are working on fixing it and will just let everyone know once they've solved whatever problem it is.

We absolutely understand where you're coming from.  We're doing our best to get in touch with DPR and the admins ... and you have my personal apologies for the lack of communication.

SR doesn't control a vendor's ratings.  That is controlled by feedback received from buyers.  Also, you can stop bitching about it any time now - as soon as the staff received complaints, they looked into it and banned the vendor.

As I understand it, there is no money actually missing -- there are deposits that haven't been credited to some users' wallets, but those deposits are shown on blockchain, so therefore are not actually "missing" --- they just need to be pushed through manually.

The other moderator and myself have sent several messages to DPR and the admins since yesterday morning, but have not yet heard back.  Hopefully soon.

In the meantime, it seems that some people are able to deposit and withdraw without issue, while others are having serious problems.

So you made a deposit, it showed up in your wallet, and then it disappeared?

Yes, it seems like this is not a universal problem - some are able to withdraw and deposit without issue, but others are having serious problems that will hopefully be addressed soon.
