"Rep"

18 posts in this topic

So, I searched but didnt see any previous suggestions/ information about a rep(utation) system.

 

I thought i read somewhere we have a new system in place, but I dont know.

 

Has the site got one? If no, I have a few positive reason, if yes, could you point it out to me!

Ahh yes, managed to miss that one.

 

I see the problem. I was thinking along the lines that you could tell how good a seller/buyer was by their rep, or how reliable someones information was by whether other people rated their posts highly.

 

Shows appreciated for posts that have taken a long time to write and taken a lot of thought.

 

But, it can be spammed. Thanks anyways Dev.

Would anyone be interested in rep being given out for clear/generally good posts? As a bit of a "bonus" for people who take the time to write good reviews and guides/generally be helpful etc?

yeah, i think that is a good idea.... although i guess its because you just want to write a guide on the vcra lol :P:lol:

 

but it would give a reward to people who are helpful, so im all for it

Given the access to equipment, I'd write guides on everything xD

 

But no, seriously, a lot of people contribute in major ways, AlexGale writes his guides, it'd be a bit of recognition for that sorta thing..

bit of a bump but imo the rep/thanks system isnt really needed as on every other forum that ive seen these on it just gets spammed and treated like the facebook like button where people click it for pretty much everything. however ive seen something called itrader on other forums which is only for selling/buying its basicly the same as ebay feedback but it allows people to put a good or bad comment on a transaction which goes on that persons profile making it easy for people to view if they are wanting to buy/sell with this person

Im with lemon191.

 

Individual posts, no, its too much trouble. But buying and selling yes. In my research for getting money back, I found a few websites had systems where by sellers had to have 100 posts before they could post in the for sale section.

 

This is a win win surely. You get the extra traffic for 100 posts, if they sell something on their 101st post, or are only spamming the forums, its a good sign they are a scammer and you can block them. Saves everyone some trouble. If you are interested in the sport and not just making money then 100 posts isnt hard.

 

Also, a seller feedback system that is easy to see at a glance would be cool, much like ebays.

the limiting the for sale section to 100 posts is something id only do if the site has a genuine problem with constant scams etc not just the odd person. 100 posts are not hard to get but on a small forum getting to a 100 would take some time without being seen as a spammer or asking the same questions which already have answers to. also i am new to the forum and the sport the for sale section could be valuable at buying cheaper gear to start up with not being able to access that could hinder some new members or even send them away from the website which is not what you want.

the feedback system is what itrader is, on your profile it will show comments from the other parties involved and underneath your avatar it shows how many transactions you have had and what percentage of that was poitive for quick reference

its not fool proof and there are ways to cheat that system but its normaly very obvious on closer inspection e.g. that person has sold to 3 or 4 people all of which dont have a single post and signed up the same day and mods can check ip addresses.

what it looks like on your profile for anyone who doesnt know

Putting a post limit on just encourages people to spam their way to it or not bother at all. If we wish to gain traffic we have to be seen as 'cool' which means keeping things free and open.

 

We have a feedback system already:

ah didnt see the link up top its not very obvious what it is unless you click it or are told its there though.

If you do happen to enter a trade, then when the seller posts saying that the item has been sold, I remind those involved to leave feedback. This will lead you to the feedback forum (or the link at the top) and there is a sticky at the top of the feedback forum telling users to use this.

 

It is also in the classifieds rules that users should leave feedback.

I don't think this is really nessasary. If anything the rating system on the profiles (with the stars) coyld be implemented into your profile in each post if that makes any sense. For example on Devastator's last post with his info on the left under the bit that says adminastrator you could have the 5 star rating thing.

 

Just an idea :)

In all fairness its only of use to new people, after you read a few posts you click on quickly who the retards are and who write the good stuff.
