Default SO Trading Post Council

As mentioned in a previous thread we have realized that a point system won't be the most resourceful tool for SO Trading Post. Lazygrae, in another thread came up with the idea for a SO Trading Post Council. I liked the idea, and the SO Trading Post Council will be used in place of the "Trader Reputation".

Lazygrae summed up well how the SO Trading Post Council will work:
Quote:
Originally Posted by lazygrae
Alternatively, consider that some of the active/reliable members here could create a list of those people that are known, with certainty, to be reliable. They could form a "committee" of sorts and can update the list every 1-3 months with new additions as new (or old) people prove themselves with other members OVER TIME. It is totally unimportant that someone has, say, "1" successful trade. But if a person does several trades with different members, and they see his/her list grow online as they post additions, and they participate in discussions etc, then they just naturally gain a reputation that everybody on the board can see and feel comfortable with. Only at that point do they get on that list. A scammer is not going to go through all that trouble so a system like that provides a safeguard to keep them off the list. If a person is not on that list, a trader check is in order.
_________________________________________________________________
Right now I'm going to propose a question to everyone. If you are interested in being a part of this council please submit your name to this thread. You have to meet some requirements though. These are the requirements:
  • You MUST have been a member at SO for 6 months and/or have 50 posts.
  • Submit your name and your name ONLY to this thread.
  • No profiteers
  • No public sellers
  • Diplomatic tendencies
  • Good reputation in the trading world overall

I'll be selecting four people from the list that will be created in this thread. I'm going to try my hardest to be as fair as possible when selecting the people. After a two days this thread will be closed and nobody else will be considered. Those who are selected for the council will be contacted privately to see if they are still interested.

As for "Traders Reputation", that idea is basically history and the thread will be gone. The Good Traders ONLY thread will be reopened for now, until the council is established. Thanks to everyone for their valuable input and cooperation. A special thanks to lazygrae for coming up with this idea. I truly believe that this will work.

If you only update this list 2-4 times a year, it won't be of much value. New traders come and go on a monthly basis. Just my thoughts.

Oops that's my error. I meant 1-3 months. Now feel free to add your name to the list if you are interested.

I will offer up my services since I really want to see some sort of system implemented to aid traders in their quests for honest traders. I will be upfront about the fact that I am not sure just how much longer I will actually be trading, so my position would eventually have to be filled by someone else. (I have been threatening to quit trading for over a year, but one of these days I really will. )

I would encourage all these people to off themselves as members of the SO trading post council.
Sorry, you can't nominate anyone. However, if you'd like you can encourage them to nominate themselves.

Count me in on the idea if I'm welcome to all, I would like to see this forum become more productive and see less bad trader postings. Good idea and let me know if you want me to participate.
THanks

Re: RareTV’s post: Wow. Lots of great ideas there, many of which, in my opinion, should be implemented, if possible.

I fully support having nannyfan and tdubel on the council (I sent an email to him encouraging him to participate). If he's interested, I would also support Loren being involved. Agent 13 and combsisthebest goes without saying.

While I think we're on to something here and am happy to participate in its development by making suggestions about how it should be set-up and run, as RareTV has done, I have no real interest in running it once it's up. The suggestion was made only to show that there are alternatives to the original # system which I strongly opposed, not because I personally wanted to be on any such committee.

We have good people here who are far more qualified than myself. I have had very few actual trades with members of this group. In fact, I would imagine that I am one of the very least-active members here in that regard. That is unlikely to change. Resultingly, I lack the personal connection that many other established, and for the matter even some new-ish, traders here have with other members. Since we're no longer collecting simple "cold data" in the form of #s, a lot more reliance has to be placed on gut feelings and people’s experience. I think the people who have those personal connections with the members here are the ones who can best serve the interests of the community.

Question Qualifications

Being a member for 6 months and submitting your name are broad requirements. Would it be possible to have certain higher standards set for qualifying members for the council?
  • No profiteers
  • No public sellers (is this too strict?)
  • Diplomatic tendencies (at least for the spokesman...I think this is very important so as not to be offensive)
  • Good reputation in the trading world overall
  • etc.

Either I'm not good at expressing what I'm getting at, or else I'm too optimistic.

I'm glad to see so many applicants! This way I can stay retired.

Agent 13,

For the record, I agree with your recommendations. I think tdubel is a very diplomatic person, too Six months on the board - or - 50 posts opens it up to wayyy too many newbies. We have some newbies that post very frequently. Personally, I think the number of posts should be irrelevant. I would like to see someone who has been on sitcoms for at least a year - just because they have seen traders come and go. As far as sellers are concerned, isn't it against sitcoms rules to sell? If so, maybe the council shouldn't have sellers on it??

Jen, those are requirements that I will add to the original post. I think that's really good. Nannyfan, those are bare minimum requirements. Remember that just because someone posts their name on this thread, doesn't meant they're going to have a position on the Council.

RareTVonDVD, I like a lot of the things you said and once the council is established we'll review every rule that you posted. Thanks.

Default Question

I have been here for some time, and I have to ask about the selling question. I have tried not to do this lately as the copyright situation is really starting to become worrisome. That said, I get a lot of requests from new traders who have nothing to send at all and I have tried to go the new box set route, but at times that is either unfair or doesn't work, therefore I capitulate for the sale. (more rare now than in the past, I would sell at one point, but just not worth the hassle from some and the off chance that it is someone looking to cause trouble). Let me know how we are handling this situation.
