With the seemingly unstoppable growth of the bitcoin market, I decided it would be a good time to setup a site as a community resource so we can all keep track of the good/bad bitcoin shops around here.
I feel that we need more exposure for merchants/traders if bitcoins are ever going to be a long term viable economy (and not just an investment)
The URL is: http://bitcookies.com
The site is still under very active development, and most likely it will change quite abit from where it is now. But I wanted to do so with user feedback.
At a minimum it allows you to rate/review businesses you have worked with - as well as compliment/comment on user profiles so you can get a good idea of whether or not a company is good to do business with.
If there isn't a listing for someone you have done business with, you can easily add them to the site and give your thoughts. If you run a business that accepts bitcoins, please add your information and what you do to the site.
Unlike the wiki, I do not want/plan for any censorship here (save immature profanity laced rants which will be deleted just to avoid smelling up the place).
There is also a section that allows you to post photos of things you might have for sale as well as view the reputation (assuming they have already traded with someone) of the people you are speaking with.
This site is very young and there isn't alot of data there yet - the bitcoin forum people will be it's very first users. Feel free to add/comment and provide as much feedback as you can so we can have this resource.
