an age restriction for hb would be sooo good. i feel bad for all the cool little kids but its honestly them that have brought this place down. from all their stupid posts and acting like theyre police officers. Kids shouldnt be spending that much money on shoes and clothes anyways


this is probably the stupidest suggestion of all

so, what if Shawn Stussy had a kid that was 10, and he loved Stussy, and wanted to be a part of HB? you wouldnt let him in just cause he was 10? thats absoloutely ridiculous

and if you think its the kids that are bringing it down, people like AL are 20ish. is 20ish a kid to you?

Dissapointing Id like to do whatever I can to help I think the best method to stop the frauds and problems is to have a sepreate section for agreements and feedback similar to ISS.

In my opinion they have the best buy/sell forum around and looking into their method may be benificial.

If you think the lack of the BST Forum will scar Hypebeast, consider the amount of scams we've had in the last month alone. You think that these don't affect the rep of Hypebeast? with the new rules still implemented, people were still being scammed.

now, unless any of you wanna volunteer to go to each buyer/sellers house, and check if their legit before they make the sale, then there really isnt much more to make the BST forum safer


we've had a lot of scams here because of people (especially those who signed up less than a month ago/and those that were vulnerable) not knowing who the sellers were and just coughing up cash for goods. Not to mention people making false accusations about legit sellers because they were impatient. It sucks that BST forum is now forever gone, but I think it's best for everyone.

Damn, way too small for me.

I think I'm just gonna start a thread in the Off-Topic section where people can sell their stuff. Well would you look at that?!?! It's already happened!

this is just ridiculous. if people get scammed it's because they are stupid, not because of hypebeast's administration

there are scammers everywhere.

hypebeast shouldnt not be held responsible for someone not doing a thorough legit check on a seller.

it's too bad that people go out of their way to scam others, i bought several times from the forum w/ no problems but i understand the reasons for shutting it down, it WAS a great way to find the shit you wanted, new or old

+1 on that, I've done numerous transactions on RFD. For the most part I find it is down to the user to do research on whether or not the seller is credible or not.

You guys are just making it your business. Who cares if someone gets scammed? Really think about it. Theres no way to stop crime. The same with scamming. If you implement a new rule, there will always be ways to get around it. And with smarter scammers everytime, the amount of scamming won't decrease but increase.

Banning scammers shouldn't be your business either. Anyone can come back instantly after being banned. They just need to know how and if not, they can figure out in a matter of minutes.

As poplulation grows, so does crime. You think all the other bigger sites like ISS don't have as much scam reports as HB? They probably have more. You guys have to realize that you can't stop bad things from happening. Do you guys honestly think that taking out the B/S/T forums and eliminating possible scams will help your reputation? Most people favor the B/S/T forums and getting rid of it will probably ruin HB's reputation.

Some of the rules and "helpful hints" I see on HB and NSB are pretty stupid too. Don't ever use a MO becuase you will get scammed? Wow looks like you both know a lot. When a MO is cashed you can trace it back to the person through their bank or their drivers license. If the clerk doesn't check for your ID, you can still find the face of the person. What do you think those cameras in the post office are for? They're not for robberies but mail fraud. You guys think that you can't get scammed through paypal? Send me $1000 through paypal and file a dispute and we'll see if you can ever get the money back. If the scammer transfers the money temporarily to a friends account, after you file the dispute, they can transfer it back and keep the money. Or they can use it and paypal will only give you what's left in their account. When a scammer is buying something without an ebay transaction, they can send the money then file a dispute saying that the item they purchased was never shipped. And without an ebay auction and no proof, you lose.
