there NEEDS to be a " RIPPER " list.
    #3804592 - 02/19/05 10:17 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

there needs to be a list of people who didnt send on their side of a trade.

*edit* list will be a sticky, and operated by mods.
idea would be that whatever happened, or records or whatever it is - will be sent to mods and the mods will put the name down accordingly.

is it that hard to make a new account to post ratings?
also, alot of the user ratings are things like "this guys funny"
trade ratings however i think are easily faked and too much trouble to cross-examine for familiars-- i dont know if that made sense.
it was a suggestion nonetheless.

I believe there used to be a bad traders thread, before we had trade ratings.

I almost posted that, as well, but your current login works (mine does, at any rate), thus my "Ah, spiffy!"

Yes and no. Ratings can only be placed after one has accumulated 25 posts.

>also, alot of the user ratings are things like "this guys funny"

This is ok for a general rating.

>trade ratings however i think are easily faked and too much trouble to cross-examine for
>familiars--

You can be sure that bad trades manifest themselves very fast in the trade ratings.

Of course trade ratings can easily be faked, but even if they couldn't be... People with lots of 5-mushroom ratings still can all of a sudden 'go bad', rip off people for $1000 or more and disappear. I'd guess that some people intentionally collect a nice bunch of green mushrooms with small trades, one day to carry out a big planned rip-off.

A sticky "ripper" list would serve no other reason but the same that the trade ratings already do, besides everytime a huge rip-off takes place, someone warns about it in the Marketplace and/or requires more info about the involved Shroomerite.

Still all these 'precautions' are a posteriori - i.e. there is no way to tell that someone is a rip-off until he actually rips someone off. Of course :smirk: There is always somebody's first trade where You can do nothing but either trust the guy or not.

I don't think there is a way to zero out bad trades and rip-offs, they're just something You have to live with. Things like that have been happening ever since the first humanoid climbed off the tree and learned to exchange bananas. Just use Your head, keep Your eyes and ears open and if You're not sure You can always ask for other people opinions.

ivi mota anno - thanks for the repsonses - after all it was a suggestion, i was aware rk had a old one - was more of a suggestion to get a new one up. yes i know the rating system is there but nonetheless - i still think a mod-only operated thread still works...the mod being someone who handles such claims.

I tend to look at more than trade ratings. I look at the people that posted the rating on that person. People I have traded with and who have been good traders. I trust there rating more than some ones rating I do not know. If I trade with some one, I place a trade rating on them. If they want to trade again later and I see my rating of them then I know they are good for the trade. It is kind of like building a trusted rating ring.

But then again I don't send money. It is strait trade.
