Ythan! I can has feature?
    #11258134 - 10/16/09 08:08 AM (8 years, 8 months ago)

I've got a new feature idea, loosely based on a members PM who complained about ripoff sites.

Picture this: The shroomery gets an extra page. On this page people can put a company name and/or URL of a vendor. Below they have the optional opportunity to vote the company 1-5 shrooms:

1 - ripped off
2 - quite dissatisfied
3 - neither hot nor cold
4 - satisfied but not ideal
5 - excellent product/service

and write a review of lets say max 1000 chars.

Somewhere on the page the users are pointed at the safety and quality of the shroomery sponsors :smile2:

They press submit and the following happens:

A nifty algorhythm involving their reg date, post count, number of ratings & trade ratings and corrected ratings average distills a "community cred" value, and tacks it to their label Anonymous.

The user gets a list of various Anonymous, their community cred, rating of the site and review of that site, as well as the community average rating of said site.

Its not just ripoff detection its an indicator of community satisfaction with a website.

At NO point are sources given. People have to give a company name or URL and get anonymized opinions of community members in return.
Its a community service.

I back this 100%, i've been ripped off in the past myself due to a lack of relevant information.

We need to look out for each other !

I like this approach Wiccan,, :thumbup:.

I agree with W_S (Yikes!), this feature would be a welcome addition.

My main concern is how our advertisers would feel about us providing reputation scores for non-sponsors. People who are concerned about a random site's legitimacy often end up ordering from one of the trusted vendors they learn about on this site. Advertisers derive value from the 'seal of quality' we provide, and I don't know that anybody would be interested in giving that up to assuage the concerns of their competitors' customers. But if nobody has a problem with it, the technical side of this request wouldn't be too difficult.

Well perhaps it can be mitigated a bit to a system that doesnt give reputation scores, but which informs a user whether a company has been "red flagged" by the community.

For the members it can be a great feature though, and it can be used to bring the sponsors some extra exposure by bringing them to the attention of people using that ratings system.

Hmmm.. in physical fitness forums you have merchants pushing their products. There its commonplace if you criticize a vendor evenb slightly you get banned off ther forum outright.

I'd like the Shroomery to be more impartial than that.

There must be a way to do this that doesnt amount to loss of turnover for the sponsors, but doesnt amount to onesided propaganda for our sponsors either.

If I had a business I would not feel threatened by such a ratings system, as company URLs aren't provided but companies are community rated on request. It offers yet another opportunity to point out that buying from a sponsor isnt just a safer bet - it helps the Shroomery also.

Keeping people in the dark to herd them to certain decisions seems contrary to our mision of better decisionmaking through being better informed.
