Okay, I was in the clubhouse today and came upon some great, nice traders. Then, I met a really unfair, rude trader. I had an idea: Trader Feedback (or, Trader KinzPoints, something like that would work )
It would look something like this, except it would be easier to see (It says +5 trader & -5 trader)
After meeting with a trader, once you exit (even if you didn't actually trade with them), a little pop-up would appear and you could either give them positive KinzPoints/Feedback or negative.
If someone got below about -5 KP/FB points, then they would be banned from the trading rooms for a day. After that penalty was up, they would go back to a neutral +0 points.
Also, you could only leave FB/KP for that person once. Ever. That would prevent the same person going back and ruining someone's reputation
There might even be small prizes if you get enough FB, like maybe a little police hat or something that would encourage people to behave well! (If you get maybe +20 or +25)
Does anyone else think this might help with scammers? and promote good behavior?!
Sadly, that would happen. Maybe it could be more like -10 until you got banned?
Maybe, but I've encountered tons of people out there who try to ban you for no apparent reason. There are not much chances you'll be banned by those crazy banners, since GANZ sometimes inspects the rooms usually. But if you automatically leave FB for someone with a score, they automatically receive it, GANZ won't inspect the trades I'm sure.
That sounds like a really good idea in theory, and if people were sane then it would work perfectly. Unfortunately, there's quite the bunch of loonies on Webkinz, so they'd intentionally leave negative Feedback just to get you banned. Which would kindof ruin the whole point of it..
But in theory, that's a really good idea, and it would be fun if it could work!
People would just rate people bad to get them banned then someone would get a low rating because they didn't have plumpy glasses then nobody would want to trade witht them;there would be 25x's more ban's per day [with the if you get below a number thing your banned from trading 4 a day.]
New members would be banned because they just have W-shop.
I wish there was a way to rate without "abusing the system." I have had way too many pets say not nice things and threaten to report me because either I did not have what they wanted, or I would not trade my valuable item for a bunch of bananas.
Perhaps you could give positive feedback only, like giving rep here on WI. That way, no one would get unfair bad ratings, and those who were rude or try to trick people would retain a low score. Now that I like!
