May I suggest people use [ ] (as a reputation system for the buy/sell/trade forum)?

Just type the person's email address and add a positive comment. I've had some private dealings and found it reassuring.

Here's how to interpret the rating.

No or few reviews - Either they haven't used before or they are a scammer who changed their email address to lose some bad reputation points. Be careful.

Lots of positive reviews - This is no gaurantee of a good sale but I've never been burned by someone with a few positive transactions. Check out the people leaving the positive feedback and make sure they have done a few positive transactions themselves. We wouldn't want someone who has cooked up a few email accounts to arbitrarily pump up their reputation and fool us into thinking they are a good person.

Lots of negative reviews - You might want to steer clear of this deal.

Remember, can be used on any transaction. It doesn't have to be just this site. I already have a positive rating.

I won't be making this an official reputation system for the site, but feel free to suggest it to those who want a bit of assurance. I'll try to come up with our own feedbck system (that perhaps considers your eBay score) as soon as possible.

I've moved your post to the suggestions forum, BTW. Thanks!
