Well if both parties think that way then the trade cannot happen, only when one party feels safe with the other users "rep" can the trade go through "safely"
Listen bro, this is how you get scammed. I would rather the trade not happen then trust a MM (A person who I don't really know in real life) or the seller/buyer (whoever you are at the time) then do the trade. If the seller/buyer wants to go first then trade happens, if not trade doesn't happen. ALSO don't give me the bullshit that MM are to be "trusted" I don't care what MPGH staff says, you can't really know a person until you meet them, and even then you can get backstabber. Plenty of forums (INCLUDING MPGH) have MM that use there position to scam people. Does it happen often? No. Does it happen? Yes. So I rather not take the risk. So I am immune to the "MM" thing. Don't get me wrong I get what they do, and it's great and all but I just don't personally trust it.
tl;dr: don't care about mm, i don't trust them, and fuck the seller/buyer if he doesn't want to go first then no trade.
P.S: I DON'T TRUST MM AS A BUSINESS, NOT THE PERSON THEMSELVES.

The Following User Says Thank You to Eternity For This Useful Post:
I think fee should be based on how big the trade itself is, sure I can pay up to $5 dollars for a middleman service, but HELLO why waste 5 bucks on a service when trade is less than the price you have given? Sure this maybe your opinion but you gotta be smart and think about it a little bit more rather than making this thread.
Being a middleman is stressful no matter what.
And I'm not really sure Dave does all that stuff, there were official MM who made a application thread and see who would apply and if I'm not wrong, person with more thanks and more time can be chosen and then the applicant who won is given either Dave, Liz or Arun because they all can modify stuff when it comes to users.
What about a MM Pass or something like you pay 30-50$ a Year, Which means if a user buys that pass he have 365Days acces to the MM Service
like that the Middlemans gets a little money which would also give a reason to keep working on it
also if people dont want a Year pass u could also do like 5$ a Trade so its more likely they gonna buy the year pass (marketing ^^ )
