Trader Rating Anyone?

by 8 comments
I know it's been discussed in the past but it probably wasn't implementable with the old script... Now that we use vbulletin wouldn't it be awesome if we had the ebay style trader rating for each warrior?

It would certainly help improve security and general confidence in dealing with people over time and would help flag the jerks.

If some say it would mean more work for admin - it could be done as on DP forums - admin does not fix trader ratings so if you do get a negative rating you have to live with it.

I think it would be a great feature on the forum.

    What is trader rating? What is it for?

      No - too easy to manipulate and not useful. One of the best things you can learn on a forum like this is to use your own judgment as to whom you listen to or believe.

      Ebay ratings are often highly manipulated. I don't like the idea of telling people who they should listen to or who to believe.

    They wouldn't be manipulated if a requirement was to include a link to the thread the rating is for.

    If you make inclusion of the link to the thread that the rating is for compulsory, it's kind of tough to fake the ratings.

    I got ripped for suggesting just that.

    1. Lack Of Strategy Many of the tools available to Internet marketers are either cheap or free. As a result, many new marketers are tempted to use them all at once. Successful Internet marketers begin with a strategy that identifies the goals of a campaign, the target audience and other key planning elements. Only then do they choose their tactics. Remember: tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat.

    Haven't Posted in a long while, been off of the scene on IM even longer. Can anyone offer some advice as to where to get restarted?

    After five years and almost one thousand projects, give it or take, I believe I have come up with a handful of more or less reliable signs that you're dealing with a bad client. I haven't reinvented the wheel, that's for sure. It's just like in that saying. Maybe I don't know what I want, but I certainly know what I don't want. The same goes here. Maybe I don't know how to find a good client, but I certainly know how to avoid a bad one. Also, I'm far from an ideal list. Sharing experiences regarding bad clients can help a lot. After all, we play in the same team. In addition, I strongly believe in Good Karma principle. Meaning, there's plenty of room and clients for everybody. Deal with real people not with avatars

    When people think of the term copywriter they will often imagine someone sitting at home or at a caf, tapping away at a laptop and churning out good copy for their immediate employer whether it be a one-off project or a long-standing relationship between a publication (online or print) and the copywriter. Now that might often be correct, but there are different types of copywriters out there. Lets have a look at the main types.

    Hopefully someone can enlighten me on something that I'm confused about it. So when it comes to CPM, from an advertisers point-of-view, they pay for every 1,000 impressions of their ad. Now their ad is viewed on multiple sites. So let's say it's viewed 100 times on Site A, 200 times on site B, 300 times on site C, and 400 times on site D. Once that happens, the advertiser pays. Correct me if I'm wrong, but that is how that works? From the perspective of a publisher is where I'm more confused. So if I'm displaying CPM ads on my site, am I paid everytime the ad is viewed on my site or does the ad have to be displayed 1,000 times on my site before I get paid?
