    Default Beyond User Rating

    Effective October 1, 2008 (yup, tomorrow!) all users with a user rating of less than 90% will be denied access to the marketplace.

    The moderating team is having to deal with too many rule infractions in the marketplace and will be issuing out user rating deductions for all rule violations. Please familiarize yourself with the forum rules, and the marketplace rules to ensure you do not lose access.

    http://forums.beyond.ca/articles.php?action=data&item=1

    The good news is, all users will be reset to 100%

    Well imagine if instead of writing that letter to the editor, she just posts on a car forum for car enthusiasts. That's Kritafo.

    so say if someone posts in a for sale thread "Bump for a sexy ride" you will be deducted trader rating? How will the penalties be weighted? How do you get it raised after it's lowered?

    I have never understood people's need to post that in a FS thread. I believe that the OP should be the only one allowed access to post in thier thread and communication should take place via PM.

    I've seen a moderator saying 1 bump per week MAX, is this the case?

    It should be one bump per week max, but it is really hard to enforce at the moment.

    the official ruling is one bump for your own thread per week max. But like b_t says, we can't really enforce what other people do in your thread. Getting your friends to blatantly give you a free bump everyday though will get the poster a minus.

    People that have absolutely no interest in purchasing anything but continually post in the marketplace. Those users are the reason this new system is being deployed. The details of the point deductions are not being shared.

    User ratings may be adjusted manually to reward users. These adjustments will be rare.

    So let's say a person post 5 pointless things in your thread before a mod sees it and deducts rating(s).
    Do they lose 5 ratings or just 1?

    well for every post that gets killed, that's 1 infraction. That's fair game, not just D being beligerent.

    If FS threads are going to be more closely watched can we have a "Good guy/ Bad guy" section in the market place to dish on loser sellers/buyers and post good things about good vedors and transactions rather than try to sneak it into their threads?

    The trader rating system is good, but i was thinking of something a little more overt. We've seen the threads in the general cars/bikes section, where someone calls out a shop, or posts a "thank you" to a vendor. I just think those threads should be in a market place section.

    The trader rating is great but I wish we didn't need to keep around old threads for the trader to refer to... it would be nice if we could prune the marketplace periodically so it doesn't get so massive.

    that would be cool. maybe have threads in the marketplace have a 150 day life expectancy?
