Default Time wasters ranking......

When people buy and sell on here there's a facility to award points as to how the trade went, thus letting others know good and/or bad traders.....
Whats the chance of putting the same thing on here for time wasters....
People who set up a trade then don't follow it through or comment it's too expensive, too far away etc.....
If you could mark them down it may make the wannabees think twice before setting up a non existent trade....
It's a sort of name and shame thing I suppose......

I agree with you a few times i have thought about leaving time wasters bad itrader for wasting my time or not turning up.
The one time i have done it was to someone that had obviously organised numerous collections for the same day as he was due to collect from me and about 3 people had left bad feedback before me so i thought i better warn others about this person.

But no i agree people should be warned of potential sales being a waste of time!

I think
* if someone doesn't turn up
* gets you to hold and doesn't end up buying (thus wasting your time!)
and other random shinanigans SHOULD be accounted for leaving Itrader feedback

They engage with the seller/buyer. The deal becomes what would be reasonably classed as "done" by both parties involved:
delivery time/place may be decided on...
perhaps postage.
and more importantly the said item will be put on hold or pending payment (making the advert void to many potential buyers/sellers eyes for that duration of time)

If anyone fails to deliver their side of the bargain then that should be accounted for... I think it should extend to messing around, then we won't have as much of it.

EDIT: I also think certain mod/s should be set the task to keep the Itrader in order. If there's any problems they can assess the individual situation as one problem with itrader is:

You leave someone negative feedback because they deserve it...
they leave it in revenge!

pointless. *Sigh*

(apologies if there's already mods who actively work on the Itrader goings on! - Just slipped my line of vision.)
