    Why OMM services have been halted

    For everyone asking about why OMM services were halted, here is a short answer.

    OMM services were halted due to problems involving the amount of time/effort it took to middleman for trades leading to stress and resigning.
    Thus new Middlemen have to be picked frequently which is a huge hassle and the trust issues with picking the right person for the job.



    Side note (For all the people bitching on skype and this thread as to why MM's took forever to reply and why its a hassle "Being a MM is so easy - skids on skype)

    Lets say I got 5 trade requests, only maybe on average one of those would actually take place.
    At one time you would have 5 trades and 4 of them waste your time asking you to wait 15-20 minutes and then just logging off.
    Most of the times I did trades it takes 30+ minutes to complete a trade no matter what it was as people decided to go slow.
    Being a MM seems easy but its extremely tedious and time consuming. On top of that most people that would contact me
    and would be bitchy towards me for not replying when I clearly wasn't online even though they were receiving a service for FREE that is usually paid on other sites. so for everyone bitching about mm's not being available you can blame the downies that would waste time. As for the people on skype messaging and saying being a MM is easy... On average a trade took approximately 30-40 minutes, I had 35 trades last month and multiply that by 35 minutes thats approx. 24 hours spent doing trades that actually went through. Now for every 1 trade I received I would receive 3-5 trades that would waste time and end up cancelling because they don't trust me as a MM, this would range from 15-30 minutes.
    25minutes x 140 = 58 hours. That should clear it up for the people that were saying being a MM is easy and why it took so long to reply.

    This.

    Everyone seems to take your services for granted, they don't understand the amount of effort and time needed to deal with this. Hats off to you guys for handling the bullshit.

    Shout out to Dark for handling this for a year. What the actual fuck.

    I think people need to learn to trade by themselves, also that MM's top priority of their life isn't to help your trade go successfully, they have other stuff to do.

    As a former MM pretty much sums it up except my trades never took over 20 min lol. But yeah the amount of MM's to member request ratio is really bad and this was when me and Symmi did the trades with Danny. Now there's like 5-7 MM?

    You couldn't pay me to be an MM. Worst job on MPGH. Shit was always annoying as GMOD when people bitched about scammers and/or MM.

    I would never be a middleman, that would be so irritating and time-consuming. Kudos to the middlemen, giving all that time to a community that the majority of are ungrateful for.
    OOM's are the unsung heroes of MPGH.

    I always wanted to be HOMM , or at least help simmi when he was in his prime , I feel like me and simmi could of ran the game how ravallo done it

    But in my opinion when new MM's were picked , You could tell the people would last, No hard workers in the flow, So it wasn't legit.

    I seem more drawn to MPGH lately. It's nice to go to a forum where most people know who the others are. Kind of like a small town.
