Thumbs up *Trader (Buyer/Seller) Ratings*

I've been on my fair share of forums and the last one had a really good trader rating system to help minimize scams and people with bad buying/selling history.

It works like Ebay's rating and you can receive/leave + (good) or - (bad) rating for each transaction. That number will then be visible at all times under each person's screen name by their post count.

I noticed we don't have anything like that here and would help people feel MUCH more secure about transactions.

I think this system should be highly considered to be put in place as there is no adverse effects from it.

If you want more info about it, PM me or reply. I'll subscribe to this thread.

We have kicked this idea around a lot. The reason we don't implement it is that it becomes a popularity tool. Theres no systems in place in any software to only allow people to post trader ratings for members they have dealt with in a transaction. Anyone can go to your profile and add positive or negative points.

We've instead set up a "purchase experience" section for members to post all comments on specific users. If a potential purchaser wants to research a seller, use that section.
