I like this idea..!! I proposed the same to Mod Benson.!
But the question is how to rate a trader whether to trust him or not.?

The policy to not remove anything worked when the forum was small. Now that we have thousands of posts a day, we can't afford 50% of them being junk. The moderators are now instructed to be less tolerant of low-value posts.

Some guidelines:

1. Free speech - you can say anything as long as it is relevant and presented in a calm and polite manner. Swearing, SHOUTING etc. make your post more likely to be removed.
2. No zero value posts or threads, like "SELL SELL SELL"
3. No pointless or uninteresting threads.
4. No referral code spam
5. No NSFW content

A lot of clutter has been moved into child boards.

I have moved most of the active conversations.

Any more suggestions?

Please do note the new updates to the member ranking on the forum. They have put in place due to the number of scammers and spammers getting involved in trading.

Very cool indeed!

Quote
The activity number is determined in this way:
time = number of two-week periods in which you've posted since your registration
activity = min(time * 14, posts)

Activity is updated every 30 minutes.

The new membergroup limits work like this:
Group   Requirement
Brand New   0 posts
Newbie   (none)
Jr. Member   1 post written over 4 hours ago
Member   activity: 15
Full Member   activity: 60
Sr. Member   activity: 200
Hero Member   activity: 400

I'm not 100% sure that the membergroups work correctly. Tell me if you see any bugs.

Hope it stops people from Spamming to Hero stat.
The formula creates no incentive for posting more than once a day (avg over two weeks), but even two posts per day would incentivize people to spam two posts per day in order to inflate their score. Activity seems to be resistant to manipulation, but not representative of all of a person's contributions. Only a legit poster would still keep posting above 1 post per day.

Even if he has a LOT to say ?

This moves the onus of trust a bit away from the forum. As we know for a fact, the Hero member badge has been abused quite a bit due to spamming.
Trust is not really to be based on a rank or a number but more on the reputation of a person. The new activity ratings show a more robust performance indicator of people in the long run. Anyone who stays around for that long, would have already built up a reputation and would not need a 'score' to justify their trustworthiness.

I do hope that made sense.
