Stilgar1973 is still being judged by the masses


Default May I suggest again that we have a minnimum post count in the 'Rage3d Deals' forum?

I have brought this up before. I am not trying to harrass you guys into something, or to be a pest with it. I just kind of thought that the current 'Kevlar' mess is an illustration of my point about having a minnimum post count to sell in the Rage3d Deals forum.

I think the Deals forum is a really neat tool. I have been here for more then a year now and I recognize an awful lot of names of the people that post often. It is kind of cool that if we have something to sell we can put it up there and relieve some of the stress of the entire 'ebay' thing. Can anyone here really say that they would worry about someone with a high post count and a recognizeable pressence selling something here?

When I search through the forum I see lots of people with blatant disrespect for the rules, posting sales without prices, ebay links, etc. These people normally have post counts somewhere around 10.
I used to think an ideal number was 100. But now I am not so sure.
Maybe 200 or 250 would be better. Some number where we can feel that if all the person did was spam he would have been busted by the mods or such, but high enough that if the person did it without spamming it would just be too much trouble.

Besides, this site is not about selling things. That is a perk. I mean, can you honestly say that someone that only has an interest in selling things and not talking games, computer games, ATI problems (that is what brought me here) and such has any business here?

I suggest to create a minnimum post count and if you haven't met it then the mods are free and clear to simply delete the thread in its entirety.

That might be a good idea, along with a minimum amount of time the user must be registered.

I agree... though we need to do some thinking about what the post count/registered time should be...

its a good idea and its an all too true reality that ppl see the member classifieds and are like alright let me rip these people off i mean it gives a person a little sense of security if the person has like at least 250 posts and has been here 6months i mean the only sales i take seriousl are from the guys that have over 1000 posts have a high ebay or heatware rating or that i KNOW and have talked to on numerous occasions such as the beta tesers

Another rule that might help (but would have to be Mod-enforced, if it could be enforced at all), would be to only to have 'x' number of pending transactions at once.

That would be significantly harder to do than changing a couple of settings in the vB ACP, but it would have stopped the "Kevlar" incident from happening. I suppose the most important thing is that people use a little common sense.

I agree, I've never used it on this forum, but it would really help people not get screwed. Maybe add a trader rating for people that sell or buy stuff often?

How about both a minimum time and minimum post count. So that way spamming is not an issue. Maybe 2 months and 100 posts. That's about a post and a half a day

I'd like to agree, but I'm not sure if it would work. I mean, most people only trade once or twice, which isn't enough to build up any sort of reputable feedback. Something like making people have a Heatware link (which shows all their trades) might work better.

I know most people won't appreciate this idea, but it's worth a shot. Why not try doing the the trading through Ebay? If somebody is selling something, the "dealings" of the transaction would be the same, but instead of the buyer blindly sending somebody their money, or the seller selling having to ship first, that the final act of transferring payment be done on Ebay.

I know that the sticky in the FT/FS forum has a good reason why Ebay links aren't allowed, but I think it might be the only way. If the transaction is done through Ebay then both the buyer and the seller are protected from possible fraud.

I'm not suggesting that Ebay links be allowed in a post, but only that once everything except transferring payment is done that the seller create an auction for the item, email the link directly to the seller, and that the transaction be concluded.

Now, I realize this is something that doesn't really involve R3D itself, but putting up a notice *suggesting* people do this might prevent future incidents from happening.

I know of an austrian forum where they have a subforum for user feedback, so members there can post how the transactions worked out, if the seller was reliable, fast, blah, blah, blah...

http://www.overclockers.at/index.php
Scroll down to the "shopping & spending cash" section. there they have the "Marketplace"-Forum and as a Subforum the "User Feedback"...

Maybe you could create such a subforum here too...

6 months (180 days) and 250 posts sounds good to me. The user feedback sub-forum is a good idea as well.

I suppose it could be something like 6 months + 250 posts OR 1 year registered...
