rockpirat1973 on ebay from Austria


Recommended Posts

Man, he has almost perfect feedback, but I've been waiting for a CD for 4 1/2 weeks and he won't reply to my messages. I paid to have the CD sent registered so I've asked him 4 times to send me the tracking number but he won't even reply to my messages? I finally just washed my hands of it and filed a Paypal claim. Wasn't really expecting problems from this seller, think he's been around a while. I'm done with him now though, won't ever buy from him again. TERRIBLE communication (well, next to none I should say).

I believe his name is Chris Baumgartner and I've sold to but never bought from him. He has never flaked out on me, but slow and unresponsive, yes he is.

 

My opinion is that ALL Austrian buyers and sellers are the absolute worst at communicating and the slowest to pay or respond to anything. They must work and live in slow motion in that country and not have any cares in the world.

 

Austrians may have good tastes in music but good lord they're a headache.

I've bought from him, sold to him, and traded with him before and never had a glitch. I hate to hear that you're having issues, hopefully it'll work out for ya.

 

With that said, normally, the words Austria, and eBay in the same sentence scare the hell outta me. :P

I had problems with this guy, too. Waited forever for a cd & finally had to file a claim. His email didn't seem to be working when I was trying to contact him either... :whistle:

 

Sounds identical to the problem I'm having. He replied to my first 3 weeks ago and since then nada.

I've bought, sold and traded with Chris for several years and never a problem.......However, just to let you know, I have had problems communicating via e mail because his e mail server is very 'SPAM" sensitive and he doesn't get alot of things.....have you tried communicating to him directly through E Bay rather than direct? Just a thought!

Yes, he actually replied back to me once two weeks after he mailed the CD. Since then nothing. Still hasn't arrived as of today and he mailed it over a month. I'm not saying he didn't mail it, I'm sure he did. I just want the freaking registration number since I paid to have it sent registered mail so I can track it online and see where the hell it is. That's hard to do when you can't get the dude to reply. He doesn't reply to emails, ebay messages, or the emails he got when I filed a paypal claim. Maybe the dude is dead.

Sounds like he charged you for registered shipping & then just pocketed the money & sent it regular airmail...I had some jerk off seller pull that stunt on me once. Had to file a claim on him, too.

That's kind of what was thinking too, only reason I can think of that he would ignore me (unless he was on a LONG vacation or taking a dirt nap)

I have no idea who's that guy but never had problems with Austrians sellers, buyers or traders (more than 20 transactions). Total flawless transactions, quick payments, quick dispatching etc. Only that thomas ringseis seems to be bad but never dealt with him.

 

This is weird, I thought that Thomas Ringseis is rockpirat1973... can I be mistaken?

I don't know maybe... To be honest I don't give base or watch that guy anymore so that's why I said that I have no idea...

No, not the same person, as far as I know. rockpirat1973 is Christoph Baumgartner.

Yes, it is Christoph Baumgartner

 

Just got an email from him, he says he was on vacation for 3 weeks and apologized and sent me the tracking number. Good news is he shipped it and it has been delivered. Bad news is that I looked it up and he sent the CD to Alexandria, Virginia and I live in Lawrence, Kansas. So he sent it to the wrong address (or he sent me the wrong tracking number)....to be continued.....stay tuned.

I'd still file a Paypal claim, because I believe the time period to file a claim expires 45 days from the day you made the payment. Something tells me your not going to get your package if it's in Virginia at the moment and you're not. Maybe it's just going from state to state in westernly direction. If you check back and it's now tracking in West Virginia, Kentucky or Missouri you may yet get the cd.

I would definately file a claim and if it still does show up later, I would inform him that it has and then re-send him the payment.

Better to be safe than sorry IMO.

I already filed a claim several days ago for that very reason. No, it shows as delivered to Alexandria Virginia, not in transit. The CD is in Virginia (or he sent me the wrong tracking number). This is getting old I tell ya.

OK, I sent him an email on Friday telling him the tracking number he sent was wrong or he mailed my CD to the wrong place. I wait all weekend, no reply. Finally I email on Monday again asking him if was on vacation again. I get an email back from him saying that he refunded my money so take back the negative feedback on ebay. Well, turns out he didn't just refund my money, I won my Paypal dispute so Paypal gave me my money back, he didn't just go and refund it like he tried to make it sound like he did. So maybe he would have and maybe he wouldn't have? Anyway, I got another email today basically demanding I take the bad feedback off because I got my money back now (all in bold red letters in the email even). I'm inclined to just ignore him for a while....then tell him no. I don't think I should have to remove it just because Paypal gave me my money back, its been a bitch getting him to reply to any messages (even if he did go on vacation, you mean to tell me he didn't check his email for 3 weeks?, I just have a hard time buying that).

 

So basically, got my money back via my Paypal dispute and he is acting like he refunded it and is demanding me to remove the feedback. I'm curious to hear what others here would do?

    • Ya, when I saw the teaser on fuckbook, I was shocked…such a great surprise.  Hope it’s a great song!
    • Not stellar, but candidly waaaay better than I was expecting.
    • Not going to disagree with this. They've really not changed their sound much across their discography. Either you like it or you don't.
    • New single 'Apocalypse Blues' out tomorrow    
    • Not quite sure about this one. The new (?) songs are good and the re-works of the 'Riot Avenue' songs do sound better than the originals (there is a but coming). 'Sword And Stone' is okay but should have been left in Bonfire's very capable hands. This version pales significantly compared to that one.  Anyway, I guess the idea of the re-recordings is decent here. For the most part the production sounds better, but, there's a problem. And without being a sound guru, I'm not sure exactly what it is. There is what I believe is an issue with the treble area in the final sound, most noticeable in the first song. I don't know the exact way to explain this stuff, but the best way to describe it is that it sounds like a well produced album, at a really low bitrate. Instead of 320kbps it just sounds like it's coming through the speakers at 64kbps... even at a high bitrate. Irritating and something I can't shake, but there's good bits to it too.    
    • I loved this dude's first two post-Idol albums. It's pure pop rock, but I still absolutely love songs such as this; Sadly, for me, everything since those first two albums has been some kind of variation of a train wreck. The Quiet Riot stuff was a mess and this type of metal he's churning out now - I regret to say - is just painful to my ears. Lyrically, he may as well be singing about pasta on train tracks with a side of tree branch for all I can connect with it. Musically I find it really boring, and lyrically it's even worse.  I've actually got the hard copies of first two CDs in my garage but it's too much hassle to go look for them. I can't remember if he wrote or at least co-wrote a lot of the stuff on those two albums, but either way it definitely sounded like the songs at least meant something to him. I'd like to hear that again rather than him trying this metal thing which really doesn't seem to suit him. If he's passionate about it, sure, go for it. I'd love to hear him doing something heavy (and good)... but with songs that actually sound like they mean something to him. This new album sounds like trash to me, I hate to say. He's undoubtedly had a very interesting life post-Idol. I'd much rather hear about that in songs rather than dragons eating reapers in balls of fiery metal or whatever shit is on this album. 
    • Pretty true to their sound so many years into their career. Definitely sounds like HS; no doubt about that. 'Broken' is my favourite song from here... nice tune. Most of the rest is all pretty good to solid too. Admirable effort. 
    • Probably wouldn't have bothered to check this out if I'd not heard an interview with Ace where they spoke about the fact that Steve Brown of Trixter fame co-wrote and produced the album. And it does sound good, production-wise. And the songs are a bit better than I expected. Stand out track is the simple but nice 'Back Into My Arms Again.'  The but? For me, it's the vocals. He is not a good singer... quite a bad one, in fact, and it affects the songs poorly, for me. Which is not to say they're all great otherwise. But some are okay. I wish they'd used Steve for the vocals... 
    • Ok even more clues. Carl's best friend the boy who cried ... and hallowed be thy name.
    • Nope you will kick yourself when it is guessed.
