Default Idea to prevent scams in clubhouse. . .

I was thinking if Ganz had a color coded border around the dock box for an item, then scammers would not be able to pass off a food item as a piece of furniture. For example, if all of the food items, recipes, psf, click to win, ect, had a green border. And furniture had a blue border. Someone would not be able to say that fools gold is a superbed. It would be obvious seeing it on the screen with a green border that it was a food item. The only thing that would need to be researched, is, my son is color blind. So Perhaps there would also need to be a pattern to the border, since he can't distinguish between red and green. So, say a solid green border for foods, a checkered blue border for furniture. What do you think? I stay away from the trading room. I like trading here much better. But since so many people report bad experiences, Ganz should step up and try to prevent unfair trades.

Such a good idea! Just yesterday evening, I was in the clubhouse trading. The person put up fools gold chocolate (you get them on vacation) and they were passing it off as a superbed. I told them it wasn't.. and they insisited that it was a superbed. I told them I knew it wasn't, and I went to report them. They were not on the trade or report list, and they were not in the room, but somehow they kept asking me to trade. So, I couldn't report them, but it is just.. crazy how people think its ok to scam someone.

Sounds like a plan. Or maybe they could have food only TRs.

It was actually your post I read this morning that inspired me. I read about someone who was scammed into trading a really nice item for the hole in one bagel, they were told it was a golfing game.

That would help a lot. Some people enjoy trading for psf.

I don't know how people can enjoy their ill-gotten gains when they scam.
Btw, you have some of the best pics of Edward I have seen.

mimzysmom---I think your idea has merit. You couldn't fool my grandson if you tried, he has like a photographic mind, but many of his friends are always asking him about things. It is a sad thing that the scammers do not try to win or get things for themselves. To me, that is half the fun.

That is something they could actually implement! It wouldn't be that difficult for them to continue the color backgrounds in the dock to the backgrounds into the shipping cubicles. I think you should REALLY submit that idea. It has GREAT merit AND it is an EASY solution!!

I agree. I have trouble remembering what is rare, what is w shop, what is a psi. The color code would make it so much easier.

Yes, practicality is half of the fight. I realize it needs to be an easy fix. There is a lot to the programming. I guess I will submit it. . . .ummm . . .where do you submit ideas?

I would like to see them bring back the feature that told you what the items were.

A few months back, when you would put your cursor/mouse over the OTHER person's items, it would tell you what the item was. I know that some of the names still may not let you know if it was a food or furniture but that could be added (ie: FOOD: Seedle Delight or FURNITURE: Giant Sandwich Table) or as you suggested, colored words that represent different categories.

I don't know why Ganz took that feature away.
When I put my cursor/mouse over MY items, it tells me what the items are (but I already know - duh?) so I don't know why it doesn't work for the OTHER person's items.

I'm sure this would help prevent scams and they already had this feature in place before.

Thanks for the great thread. Something needs to be done about the scammers.

I agree, I actually think it is MORE than half the fight because you can't dispute what is showing on the screen. It would curtail a great amount of food scamming. I can't imagine how sad a kid would be if he fed his pet his 'Superbed.' It is bad enough that I lost a Super Jar of JB's before they were storable because I was trying to place it in the room.
The Comments and Suggestions portion of the WW (same place you go to answer the survey and get your 50 KC ) You submit it as a suggestion. They DO actually read those, I have found.
