    Default Trade Etiquette?!?! How long to hold a Q?

    Sooo - just wanted to get some opinions here

    What do you think is a reasonable amount of time to hold some Qs for someone?

    1 day? 2 days? 1 week? 1 week+!?!

    I would think 48 hrs would be enough.

    If I see they haven't been online since the initial trade PM, then I'll wait two days. But if they have been online and still haven't written back, I'll give it only 24 hours.

    48 hrs unless I say otherwise. If they're hot qs or I had multiple PMs, I specifically say "if I don't hear back from you within 24hrs, I will move on because I have other offers"

    This is almost word-for-word what I was going to say. You can go to their profile to see when they were last online. If they've been online...and posting (especially if they're bumping up their ISO trade that we were working on), I only give it 24 hours.

    I feel 24 hours, you snooze you lose. But that's just me.

    I would like to hold for 24 hours unless asked to hold for longer.
    I don't mind to hold for up to 3 days but hate to hold that long and never hear back.
