    You could complain to me about it since I'm the one who deleted the thread. It was degenerating into a name calling session and going nowhere.

    I know. That's because I deleted it before we got there.

    I agree Rep is fun, but holds no water on the trade side.

    The ratings system is non-functional. People are seeing their ratings, but where? I haven't seen doo-squat.

    Frankly, I think it's silly. If it can be applied to ONLY the Classified forum, that would be useful. I've only bought stuff, though. I've never sold anything. Well, I sold an old trackball to someone in the chatroom, if that counts.

    I can see these ratings being turned into a popularity contest. Certain extreme post whores (Scouse, lgbr, Motoko, Rustyboxx) will simply up eachother's ratings until they're off the friggin' charts.
    Nothing against any of those members, but it illustrates the uselessness of the rankings.

    Again. It's a popularity contest and nothing more.

    I think it would be more useful if a moderator were to change someone's title if someone were reported to have scammed someone. Maybe ACCUSED SCAMMER or something else that would indicate that there was another member who was dissatisfied with the way a deal went down.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    That would all be just in fun, but a dedicated scammer could easily create fake accounts, give himself a good rating, pull one good scam, and run. Scammers on eBay go to a lot more trouble greating multiple accounts and selling penny-antie items among themselves to up their feedback scores before pulling a few scams and then ditching the account.

    IMO, the communal nature of these forums does a *far* better job of keeping the scammers away. I've only heard reports of a few bad transactions, and each time the scammer picked mp3car out of thousands of technical forums for one scam and one scam only. I'm convinced that anyone who tried to pull something twice on mp3car.com would simply get reamed in the very advert post.

    I did a little research back when this first came up and didn't find anything that was actually useful in the real world. To be honest, I didn't realize that vBulletin had a built-in ratings system, though it is quite possible that rating were a feature that got added on one of the many upgrades of the past few months. I'll see if I can get the built-in ratings system working for what it is.
