I've noticed systems on other forums (nameless for their own protection :P ) and wondered if we should start a sticky in the Buy/Sell/Trade forum.

For those who don't know what I'm blathering about, let me explain. Say you conduct business with another forum member, be it a trade or a cash sale. At the conclusion of the transaction (ie both parties received what they were supposed to) they leave a positive or negative rating (ala eBay), like a +1 or something. Then, in the top of the thread all traders names are listed with their ratings; so if Member A conducted five fair, successful transactions, his rating would be 5. In addition, it would list underneath who gave the positive/negative rating, so those specific members could be contacted for additional feedback (if necessary).

If I absolutely MUST show an example of this, I will; I just don't want to feel like a total idea thief when it comes to other forums. :)

Not alot of trading goes on here because we're all a bunch of stingy gits :lol:

I really think it would be better to take trades to one of the forums that specialize in trading. They have excellent policies and procedures in place to reduce the chance of getting ripped off.

I've started several trades here and them moved them to the other forum to help insure both parties are protected.

If trading were more active here, I'd support it, but with the level that exists, I'd say, it's alot of trouble. Just easier to start here and then mover over to another forum.
