Can we have a forum reputation function??? Your thoughts?
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.Posted 8 years ago
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.qwertyMember
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 mindPosted 8 years agoclubberMember
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.Posted 8 years agorOcKeTdOgSubscriber
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.Posted 8 years agoThe Swedish ChefMember
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.Posted 8 years agoaracerSubscriber
"How about if all new members could only register with an ISP email address? "
Not everyone has one, i know i don't.
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!Posted 8 years ago
