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.

Good idea, you need more promotion if you want to run this for sure people take a honest review about some company which listed to your site. I just afraid if people do a fake review.

If you need a graphic designer for your site, just PM me with the details.

Some kind of reputable site of this kind is definitely needed with trust-worthy (known) reviewers doing the actual reviews.

Site offline for me as well.

There will always be flaws with such systems.You know what basis you can review or rates the site or peers on ? Reviews from the customer or someone who have dealt with them right ? People buy trust ,probably pay money to get good ratings .Such flaws are difficult to overcome unless you have a way to verify everything happening is legit and trust worthy.

There's a huge risk it would become like youtube or booking with people on fiverr advertising their talents to write fake comments or reviews. So it'll be worthless...
