i think maybe a way to sell things and not get scammed is , you must post pictures of the actual item with your s2ki name on a piece of paper in front of the item and post it up that way you know that person has the items and the description is legit just a thought

Does s2ki have the framework to allow a seller-rep system? I've seen this on other forums and it makes a lot of sense. A link located under their avatar allows potential buyers to see successful sales and comments.
with this also.....would make things 1000x easier and reliable

There is a good guy and bad guy thread sticky, I think that is good enough.

Thats actually the dumbest thing i have seen yet. Its like to know whether a person has a good rep, i gotta go through 30 pages? no way. tha iTrader ranking is the best. i see it on the other forums and it lists the positive and negative feedbacks kinda like ebay. and i know damn well this forum is capable of that so i say we turn it on.

nice
I buy and sell here all the time, love you guys
common sense is best used when ever dealing with someone on an honor system such as this is. There are a few bad eggs here sorry to say, but there are far more good people here
I think an Ebay type feedback system would be great with your ratting under your avatar.

The Mods here in the market place should make an agreement post like they have on www.issforums.com. This is a shoe site, when two people agree on something they make an agreement post w/ what they're selling/buying blah blah blah. Ever since ISS did that there has been been practically zero scams. Just an idea. But yea the mods should check out ISS's market place it's well organized.
