Recommended Posts

but how? if everyone posts a reply in the thread like "I bought from user-x and everything was great" the thread will soon have 50 pages of replies, you can't browse through the whole thread just incase someone has mentioned your potential trading partner somewhere.

how many people have actually been burned by people selling things on this site? i feel like buying from people here is pretty safe since if someone is spending time on a messageboard, they will likely not want to fuck up their reputation by ripping off other members.

Why not add a whole new system so that when someone click your profile they see PLUS or MINUS blocks or points added to your overall score .

There would have to be somehow implemented a way of knowing if someone had made up multiple user names just to plant fakes sales though ..

not an easy one - reading IP's doesn't show if someone goes to school and sells themself something or if someone uses a buddy's pc ..

there's the whole sugar cane debacle that i won't link

I imagine you are talking about me and 6MT, who for the record promised a $20 refund and then never responded to any PMs.

On other forums I have been to they have a sub-forum in the marketplace, where each member then has a thread (started by the first buyer or whatever) that all subsequent transactions are reviewed in.

DDML, am I missing something, where is this done and done? You want to use this as that? It gets pretty tough, and a sub-forum I think is the best way to do this if there are concerns. But as mentioned, I think they are few and far between here.
