My Feature request :D (in General)

Although I haven't seen hide nor hair of Jon/NS (Where are they?)

How about a sort of Wiki page for each supporter attached to their page that they cannot edit.

In this page people can record things such loan information, business information. Anything they want really.

(Kind of like a feedback page for others to view)


Jiraiya said he would pay off his 5m loan in 3 weeks, paid it off in 1. Would do business with him again anytime.

Jiraiya is a deadbeat DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH HIM EVER!!! (:P)

Jiraiya is a trustworthy and quality player.

Jiraiya is a bum, do not ever loan him CBD as he will take FOREVER to pay back...

Etc Etc.

This would assist new players who don't know the community, in doing business with players, as they could see feedback on the player from the community.

oh god. No.

I can already see that after every one of these flame threads that comes up, because you KNOW there are people too immature to keep it to the thread.


{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- April 16 2009 2:15 PM EDT

:| You have a point, I didn't take immaturity into account. Maybe have it be just sort of a running tally for business related things ONLY?

Punishable by a large fine to TP. Would give the admins something to do, and boost TP's monies.

I still think New players would benefit from something like this, as opposed to having to manually look through old PR records.

Bad idea.

And Obama IS the devil's stepson. You can put that in BOLD letters on my page, if I ever get one.

QBOddBird April 16 2009 2:18 PM EDT

Well, we do have a flag that can be placed on someone if they are a poor business associate.

I doubt admins want to patrol 300 wiki pages on various Supporters who might or might not have flames being posted on their entry.

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- April 16 2009 2:21 PM EDT

Oh, I didn't know about the flag, I was thinking maybe a simple CM gets posted to the user whenever someone puts something in their page, and if it's something not business related that user could simply chatmail an admin and boom 100k fine to TP ^^.

Bad idea I guess, was just thinking of new players, and ignorant to the current flag system.

Do you know any flagged people off-hand that I could look at to see an example??

QBOddBird April 16 2009 2:25 PM EDT

It's a good enough idea, but I don't think moderating it would be an option, and I just don't think we have a mature enough community for it.

I dunno if anyone has one right now; if you try to transfer anything to them, though, you'll promptly see the flag in big letters warning you that the person is not someone you probably want to do business with.

Perhaps a rating system like 1-5 or 1-10 based on all users votes. So 1 bad apple or immature person would not destroy a persons rep and the general opinion would be viewed instead.

Admiralkiller [Cult of the Valaraukar] April 16 2009 3:30 PM EDT

If i may add... the option to vote could only be given when certain dealings with said person happen

QBRanger April 16 2009 3:32 PM EDT


I will send you 1 cb2 and then rate you a 1.

Admiralkiller [Cult of the Valaraukar] April 16 2009 3:47 PM EDT

Yes that's a loop hole but with careful thought b4 implementing you could avoid such things. E-bay has a rating system i believe.

QBRanger April 16 2009 4:06 PM EDT

And ebay is different in that it is 100% auction based.

Perhaps if CB was that way... but then all auctions have no room for abuse. So then everyone would get a 100% good rating.

There is nothing seriously wrong with the current system.

Yes, a few times new players have been abused or taken advantage of. But almost all the time, the older players come to their defense and make things right. Either with items or cash or advice.

And the Montys of the game are now quickly dealt with and flagged as a credit risk.

And there is always chat.

ebay originally allowed anyone to rate someone else. if you upset someone with many friends then you could get some major negative feedback. now it is per auction only and only one feedback per auction.

they also used to allow sellers to leave negative for buyers. sellers would wait until the buyer posted and if it was negative or neutral they would retaliate with negative as well. now i believe you can only leave positive feedback for buyers.

it has taken ebay around ten years to get system that is less exploitable and they are likely not through yet.
