So we're creating a new trader ratings system which @Chris Deeming will code for us from scratch.
We have a very busy classifieds community at AVForums with moderators dedicated to dealing with our very strict, but relatively safe trading environment. They have a lot of experience and we are working together to create a trader ratings system which does everything we need.
The core functionality is to allow two members to exchange trader ratings, positive, neutral or negative.
We at AVForums will require both parties to have posted in a thread in a trading forum, and one of them must have started the thread.
We will insist that feedback is honest.We hand out stiff infractions (warnings, of course going forward with XF) to people who give retaliatory negative feedback.
We will also be looking at the total trader rating being influenced more by trading misbehaviour.
