Hey.

Any updates as to when the rating system will be implemented?

I was also wondering if there was a way to prevent people signing up as members just to place adverts on the site. Would it be possible to only allow people to post ads once they have made a certain amount of posts on the forum?

There is for example a ad in the classified section, I don't know the seller and in no way am I implying that he is untrustworthy or a scammer, but it is very disconcerting that when I went on to his profile it shows that he only signed up to day and it seems his first and only action was to post an ad. It is possible that I am being overly cautious, but there is no chance that I will follow up my interest in the advertised animals.

I think it will only be for the best if the people making use of this platform to advertise are "encouraged" to contribute to the forum as well.
Please go have a look at my facebook page

Francois, I agree with you there. But in a way, it's sorted itself out as I'm sure I'm not the only one who doesn't respond to ads if the person's name is in light green and hasn't posted anything. Maybe I'm not being fair, but that was the case with KAMI NAKAMA who was recently caught out as being a scammer. I think a simple introduction would do them a lot of good in getting their name out there.

Maybe we should implement something like Venomland's star rating of their members? And whenever you do business with someone, you rate them out of 5. And I think it should work like a rugby kicker's statistics, where it has the number of stars they got out of the total number of possible stars. And then the average number of stars can be displayed above / below their name?

I agree whole heartedly Wade! By the way...when will my name change from light green...to a colour which would be more likely to encourage conversation? I also noticed a name the other evening, which was in a light blue...with the words "restricted membership" written below...What does that mean?

Wessel, I think you need 50 posts to beocme a 'normal' member. You're one post away from getting your name changed so quickly comment on something, haha!

They've broken forum rules and gotten 3 warnings so their posts have to be approved my a moderator before it shows up.

Tarka dont confuse quantity with quality. Thanks anyway.

I hear you Mr N! I often wonder if certain folks are chasing numbers...? I regularly read threads where I see 1 or 2 word comments.
