The only thing that really worries me about that is a group of guys getting together to fluff up their ref score, so that they can run scams based on them. You know?
We have certain controls and tools we can use for people on the site. People coming from off site, though... those would be more difficult.

It *IS* an interesting idea, though.

I think that is police-able though. Especially true since anyone who spends time on Bartertown would have a higher score than those folks out in the world.

Other things to think about:
- Have 'Verified' and 'unverified' feedback. I.e. If someone isn't willing to tie a BT username and facebook account to their feedback, it only counts for half of a normal feedback or is highlighted differently. Perhaps people who only have unverified feedback get a special color or note on their listing.
- Continuing that Weigh feedback at different rates based on some algorithm that you make up. (i.e. Facebook is worth 1 rep, BT is 2, Dakka is 2, In person is 1, etc.)
People who owe me feedback: Aelorien Darkthorn, Arthas367x2, Bigheaddan, ccaine1, clianez2033, Close Seer, echarlie x2, gamma098, greywolf90, hot_boy_ronald, Inigo Montoya, jamshaman, jkilla, keyoftwilight, lafkak, litsnsirn, monroe126 x2, Mournafein, noexit1982, Palados, Pappasa, prkeller, proofyeq, readingrambo, rwphillipsstl, Skuller, steellegioncpt, TheDean, Voodoopainter, xsoulgrinderx x2, weebph, fuzzystrawberry, godswildcard, rawfist, snakezit, thelaric, dagna, callidusx3, ccaine1

Hey guys,

Sorry I missed out on the first bit of this discussion, but it looks like MM has you in his ever-capable (if a little sweaty) hands.

To get us started on this, I've added a Paypal donation link to the board. Up top, near the link to the forum rules, you'll find a Donate link. It'll take you to a page where you can select an amount (and a currency) and it will then bounce you over to Paypal to complete the transaction.

Once we work out a goal, I'll implement a donation goal tracking bar as well, so those of you interested in donating can see the progress you're helping with!

I have more updates I'll be looking at in the next few days, so don't be surprised if things look a little different soon, especially for BT+ members.
