Direct Link To This Post Topic: Feedback system
    Posted: Jan/11/2011 at 8:39am
 
First things first, this was not my idea, I'm getting it from Newschoolers.com a skiing website. It works pretty well for them and I cannot think of a reason why not to implement it here, it would help forum users secure that they are legit buyer/seller without having to search through a whole thread to find someone. And not saying we need this instantly, but it would be a good future update imo... I know Trusnow is still doing a lot of stuff.
 
The Plan: Updated
Just like Newschoolers.com does with their members we need some sort of feedback page on your profile that people can go onto and post if you were a good seller/buyer, but only that. I don't think people should be able to post hate comments of you like how mad you made them, the one thing newschoolers does a lot. It would help get new members that are trying to sell/buy things get a good rep fast and get trusted before to long, which would be a really nice thing. Also shows all the problems people have had with your buying/selling.  Seems like a good system that works great for newschoolers, personally I love it. Once again it lets you know the persons actions and if you should deal with them or not.
UPDATES:
Submissions to moderators of a good/bad action of another member WITH proof. Moderators can then either put on feedback page or have a stickied thread with member name and what they did. I prefer the solid member page for everybody
   »Update  Karma Out«
Karma: Just like newschoolers has, karma. People can put on a scale of 0-10. If they helped you with something obviously you would put +karma. If someone goes into your thread and is a total jerk then obviously -Karma. This deals more with the hating factor than the feedback portion does imo. This helps rule out the jerks and point out the helpers, which could be a bad thing could be a good thing.
 
I'm not all wanting karma as much as the feedback, we could do without karma but I still think every member needs a feedback wall of what people have posted so others don't have to do a serious amount of digging or creating new threads to find out if they are legit sellers/buyers.
 
Thoughts below; comments on improvement/suggestions

Like rook said, this is going to end up being 1000+ yes and around 10 no(noobs being homosexual but a no go on the feedback system. We all know trusnow is still undergoing major maintenance, so if they even accept the proposal, it could be years before anything happens. For now, you're doing the right thing. Once you get a significant amount of votes, send the link in to the admins and staff, but until then, you've got my vote.

Im all for this and was surprised it wasn't already part of the forum. Does anyone know why its not? Can't see this being a negative, helps out everyone so you know who's scammin/shady and whos legit.

We will see if trusnow will be able to implement changes as fast as the old sierra management used to be.

i vote yes, but there would have to be a way to regulate who gives feedback, like on ebay. if anyone can leave feedback for anyone, a scammer could go make a few profiles or get friends to leave positive feedback, when really he/she hasnt sold anything.

Definitely need a good seller bad seller feedback system. The last thing i bought from a forum had a trader point/feedback system and i was confident about the seller. If it wasn't for that i don't think i could trust any forum sellers on any site.

The karma thing you mentioned not needed and will be abused by me. I will give out a ton of negative karma if implemented.

As I am a skier and have bought stuff from buyers on NS i am telling you the feedback system is a very comforting thing when buying from people you don't know and it would be a great addition on this site. That said buyers should still do everything in their power to protect themselves, like sell locally or use paypal

^^Also, when people shtook around with the feedback, you send NS administrators an abuse message and people can be banned off the site permanently. As a result, I have honestly seen no feedback abuse. Its really good NS cracks down on kids abusing this

That is a really great point and I totally agree.  This issue would certainly make the whole system more difficult/costly to implement though, so I'm guessing it's unlikely to happen any time soon.  Personally, I'd rather have no feedback system than one that is unreliable/abused - it's unfortunate that we can't easily trust the people we're dealing with online these days.  That said, if you are purchasing something from someone online, using PayPal would probably give you the best protection, but trading is a whole different story, of course.

i like it but will need something to stop people creating numerous accounts and spaming against someone they dont like or themselves?

some sort of minimum time spent on site or points or something to stop this.

also if for some reason i dont like *insert name here*....every post they do i will just negative them.....that would rather unfair for *insert name here* would it not cause they could be a overall good contributor/seller?

how to protect from this kind of abuse?

Pasting my post from what seems like the other thread about this exact same subject that you also created today.  Necessary?

I personally don't care for a "karma" system, because I think it would easily turn into the current points system.  People would just give karma to whoever they wanted, including friends, just back and forth for no reason.
 
Anywho, I STRONGLY suggest a sticky thread in the Classifieds section that basically would allow us to put usernames of those people that we approve of, and also that we disapprove of.  Basically a list of Good and Bad.  Maybe call it Santa's List of Traders?  Anywho, it would require a user to submit the person in question to a moderator, and then provide facts/reasons as to why they think they should be added to the good/bad list.
 
I for one am in the process of getting f**ked over by somebody on here and was lucky enough to force him to complete the sale through Paypal.  I haven't heard a peep out of this piece of sh!t for almost 3 weeks now and am currently in the process of making a claim on Paypal.  Will eventually get my money back, but it's a frickin' hassle and takes a lot of time.
