    I have seen a lot of threads about poor payment on the classifieds etc, and I wondered if there was a way of adding a reputation function.
    I know on other sites, I visit there is the opportunity to give people a good rep for their activity on the site and for their sales.
    This would give us the oportunity to reward those that list items well, package and send on time etc and those that add the amusing threads and posts, It could even be a to tier sysstem, one for content one for classifieds activity.
    I'm just putting that out there. You lot can now tear my idea apart and tell me that its way to expensive to put in to place.

    Gets asked most weeks I think.

    I am guessing it would take time to administrate and everyone likes the fact it's currently free/donation.

    How about if all new members could only register with an ISP email address? Alot of forums I use do this, stops trolling and multiple accounts being set up.

    you can probably have whatever you want – if your willing to pay for it (think Premier User) – but seeing as its a free service that runs on donations (probably too few at that) then i don't think we can moan (or ask for more for free) – ebay is always an alternative if you want "feedback" etc, but still not 100% peace of mind

    Simplest method which needs no set up at all is just that if you buy/sell something then post on the original ad once you've had payment/received the goods about your experience. If everyone did that then it'd be easy – look at an ad, click the user's name and look back at previous threads.

    Clubber – surely that's far to simple and easy!

    Just click on the profile for the seller

    Lots of posts on the chat forums = positive feedback
    Only posting on classifieds = negative feedback

    How about classifieds ad's are posted to by the buyer/seller when the transaction is complete and all is happy? Just check a profile to see what their sales history is like?

    Doh! Let the cat out and post everyone elses reply.
    Seems like a good idea though

    bet there are a lot of good sellers who don't use the forum socially.

    Well Ive been called a Cock numerous times. Maybe a reputation with 'hora – is a giant cock' would suffice for me? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    IMo all you need to do is look at the posting history and make a judgement based on that

    hard to police really and if someone gets a bad rep due to a misunderstanding it could all turn very ugly

    i avoid members who have only been registered a short time and have only posted on the classifieds and i tend to only look at names i know and have seen on the forum for the last 5 years or so, sad to discriminate against new members this way but that's how i feel.

    Start a buying and selling feedback thread.

    After each transaction that takes places add a post saying what you brought/sold and a quick summary, e.g. quick payer/posted before money was cleared. Goods as described.

    Keep the thread as a sticky at the top of the classifieds forum. Self regulation works well.

    mehhhhhh,

    I posted on freeform5spots classifieds add when I was unhappy with him not sending stuff. He lost a good 4+ sales from that. Although nowt to stop him registering a new name and flogging the same stuff. Oi Peter, where's my cassette?

    I do, but it's only really used for signing up to things that require one (how do you use ebay/paypal without?) and gets loads of spam. Mind you I think it's possible to sign up for my ISP one without actually using my ISP!

    There could be a sticky thread each month, and you can post the usernames you've had good experiences selling to/buying from?

    I like singletrack for how simple and clear it is. IMO adding a rep function would need to be done in a way that doesn't detract from this.

    its fine as it is.

    if you don't mind a bit of risk, use STW, mostly you'll pick up a bargain, occasionaly you'll get stung.

    if you want less risk, pay more and use ebay.

    if you want no risk, pay more again and buy new.
