What is MoparMarket.com?
The short version : MoparMarket.com is an online classifieds E-zine that caters for the Chrysler enthusiast.

The long version : MoparMarket.com was born in November 1999. Its creator Ray Webb Jnr prompted to fill an obvious void for enthusiasts of Chrysler branded vehicles in relation to sourcing spare parts for their classic and vintage cars. Its humble beginnings led to significant growth in traffic over a short period of time. Maintained manually via direct emails for nearly two years, MoparMarket.coms readership outgrew its creators available time for updates. Help was sought by way of a significant website overhaul by an avid Moparmarket.com reader Byron Schubert. Byron proceeded to re-design the facilities that required less manual time restraints for its moderator with its semi-automated features.

MoparMarket.com continued with version 2 for some 3 years with great success and consistant growth. With over 850,000 genuine website visits ( as @ April 2005 ) MoparMarket.com is undeniably Australias premier location to advertise for the Chrysler enthusiast. In Oct 2004, Byron was again commissioned to take on what would be aptly known as V3 (vee-three) -- aka : MoparMarket.com Version 3.

V3 promised to have all new website interactive features that are normally only found in high-end commercial advertising facilities, together with entertaining attributes to keep the punters happy. April 2005 saw the launch of V3...the rest is history.


What has changed between the old and new MoparMarket.com?
Other than the massive change of layout and graphics, there are three primary changes between the old and new MoparMarket.com websites.
  1. MoparMarket.com not only offers a comprehensive and interactive classifieds facility but it now incorporates a complete online auction engine... give it a try.
  2. Ads are posted immediately, AND you can now modify your previous ads. As a result you now need to register (for free) to be a member of MoparMarket.com.
  3. Members (users) of MoparMarket.com now have a rating. The more you have positive trading on MoparMarket.com, the higher your reputation becomes. This shows you as being a reputable MoparMarket.com member to potential buyers and sellers.
  4. There is now an easy to use Reader's Rides section! This means that, unlike before, if you have a project or many pictures of your car(s), you can easily put them on MoparMarket.com. As a member you can have your own member site for free, and you easily update it.
  5. Search for ads Previous versions of MoparMarket.com had no search features at all, relying solely on users to manually peruse through ads and archives to find what they wanted. MMv3 offers a fully integrated database facility which ties all facets of the website together. This new attribute makes MoparMarket.com much more efficient and user friendly.
  6. Better administrative functions. MoparMarket.com now offer administrators more freedom in moderating ads and more important policing troublesome users. Users and submissions alike can now be suspended and/or deleted, making MoparMarket.com that much more safer for the honest enthusiasts.

What is feedback and how does it work?
Feedback is an important method used to give users reputations on MoparMarket.com. By sucessfully buying or selling on MoparMarket.com, or dealing with a prospective buyer/seller, you have the ability to post feedback on the other person in their feedback page, as they can also do to you.
    An example... You want to buy a car advertised on MoparMarket.com. You call the seller, and he answers your questions straight out. You decide to check the car out, and it's as described. He's flexible on the price, you offer him a price, he takes it. You're both very happy!

In this case... You should post positive feedback for him, and he should post positive feedback for you, both explaining briefly why the transaction went well.

    Another example... You want to buy a car advertised on MoparMarket.com. You email the seller who, by request, sends you pictures of the car. He says it has minimal rust and is an easy restoration, and that he'll throw in some spares too. You decide check the car out, and it's nowhere like it was described. It's got rust everywhere and he's changed his tune about throwing in some spares. Not a nice experience!
In this case... Let everyone else know by briefly explaining what went wrong Of course, if you post negative feedback, the other person is likely to give you negative feedback too... You have the ability to reply to feedback that is given to you, and vice versa. This way you can explain each of your points as to what went wrong, to present your cases to a potential buyer/seller in the future.

The examples above highlight why feedback needs to be given. It's primary purpose is to aid in you determining how good (or otherwise) someone is to deal with.


Why bother posting feedback?
Feedback has a very important role - over time it builds positive reputations. Dealing with a seller or buyer can be risky sometimes - feedback helps you to deal with a user by displaying feedback in the form of other people's experiences who have dealed with the user. If the person has had many good experiences and few or no bad experiences, then you probably won't have any trouble with them.

How do I post feedback?
Posting feedback is easy. Simply locate the advertisement posted by your desired seller. Once you have found their ad, simply scroll to the bottom of the page and select "POST NEW FEEDBACK", select from Positive, Neutral or Negative feedback and enter a feedback comment. Please note that feedback can ONLY be left for an individual who is advertising. Please use the MoparMarket.com feedback system responsibly. All feedback pertaining insults or personal attacks will be promptly removed and the poster suspended.
