    Need star rating or something like that for all service threads.
    There is too many comments on thread and you can't find bad reviews if you want.
    Now thread has Thanks button, but this is not working as it should ( many sellers say: Please like our thread and post the transaction id).
    There is no review button, or BAD service button.

    This would be open to so much abuse. Everyone who didn't like rival sellers would just get people to click the bad service button.

    Staff would not be able to confirm who was a legitimate buyer or not. We do have the I-Trader system, for those who use it.

    In my opinion every seller must to have a feedback section with 3 stars (1 star = negative feedback, 2 stars = neutral feedback, 3 stars = positive feedback) or 5 stars (1 star = negative feedback, 2-3 stars = neutral feedback, 4-5 stars = positive feedback) and a section where every buyer can post a comment about the product/service received.

    Every transaction must to have a number of stars and a comment from the buyer and the title of the product or service.
    If a buyer send negative feedback and post an unreal comment the MODS must to revise the feedback and the comment.

    If i can remember well, we had the star rating system this before and it didn't work too well. It was abused.

    Star system wont work friends, it could be easily abused

    The iTrader is very much better version of it.

    As for uncluttering the reviews, I liked the idea of having tabbed section for bsts (not sure who posted it, but it was a great suggestion). It will have section for discussion, as well as for reviews and so on. That should work pretty good. As for rating system, we already have i trader like @MisterF mentioned. I don't think we need more features which will further confuse the buyer.

    iTrader is not highlighted anywhere in the Marketplace unless you specifically go to a user's profile or PM them. If iTrader needs to be used more, it needs to be more prominent in the Marketplace, as it was when we were running vBulletin.

    Nothing that has been covered here is handled in any way in the BHW 2.0 beta as I can see it.

    The information on the "NEW MARKETPLACE" is here: https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/bhw-marketplace-2-0-thoughts.1106901/. Basically, a way for BHW to take a percentage of profits from sales, with the drawback being increased costs for buyers.

    Fiverr style income sounds fancy, but Fiverr seems to have become more greedy these days. with additional fee even when buying a gig from the Fiverr balance.

    Btw, how do I become a Jr. Executive VIP ? ;)

    I think that every buyer can pay 5% - 10% more and to have the money in a safe place.
    I know that you are a correct seller, but not all the sellers are like you!
    And the sellers from THE SHIT LIST were normal sellers until they started to scam one or more persons!
