I like that idea, but unfortunately it's not going to happen because how would Ganz know about the scammer? I don't trade much myself because the first time I got scammed when somehow the other person took back the thing I wanted and I ended up with just a poster. That was in regular KC.
You're right, it would be hard to track since regular chat has no report button. There may not be a way to fix this, except by trying to keep the non-experienced traders informed. It's a shame you can't mention WI in chat plus without apotentially getting banned. It would be great if Ganz let people refer others to these threads.
I really like this idea. It would help weed out those who just say they are new in hopes of getting more out of the trade versus those who are really just learning.
I like CrystalFlute's idea of have the value of items and maybe where they are from more clearly labeled...that would definitely help people who are new and even those who just aren't sure what an item is.
A rating system (like the stars on Ebay) that show how many trades someone has had is good too. I think that would say a lot. Also, if someone is recently back from being banned their activity should automatically be monitored just as if they were out on parole. They should have some kind of "badge" or something that shows they are on "probation" (I can't help but think of the Scarlet Letter").
I know I would like to know if I should exercise a little more patience with someone who is new rather than getting annoyed that someone is just saying something to trick me. Great thinking!
good idea... i think the new traders room is a good idea... that way they can get the hang of it... kinda like the gifted training section!! then, after they complete 20 trades, AND they feel they're ready, they go to the regular trading room. i remember the first time trading, and it wasn't too bad for me, (i think i had already started training in the gift exchange though... i think, LOL ) but i see all these traders who put food up while i'm putting up some of my nice items. it sometimes frusterates me, because a lot of times i get inexperienced food trader after trader after trader. in 30 minutes or an hour, i normally only get 1 or 2 good trades... i think it will ehlp a lot if they have a section where you get use to it... then, there wouldn't e a need for scammers to attach newbie traders for the badge, and the rest of us can find people who have simmilar items(and trading knowledge!!) to ours.
I like it, I would love someone to help me out there. I never trade in the trading rooms, it terrifies me. It amazes me that you can tell who's new and who is a "regular". But, I think it's a great idea!
I have actually stopped trading in KC+ COMPLETELY! I use to only go in there, but I could not take the rudeness, the scamming, the please give it to me as a gift, or my sister really wants it. Honestly it look the fun out of collecting. I will not let the kids in KC+ either.
I never knew the new people, but I always knew when "the mean kid" was back. So if there was a new way of keeping track that would be cool, till then I will not go back to KC+ trading.
