    Below is the rule as it relates to the iTrader system on BHW.

    You'll notice it is only for "the performance of other members as buyers or sellers after you have conducted a business transaction with them" and not for anything else.

    Any misuse of the iTrader system will guarantee you a warning and there will be no exceptions.

    Part of the benefit of being on BHW is being able to see how one performs as a buyer or seller and when a person leaves an iTrader, whether negative or positive, for anything that is not bought or sold it is essentially lying to either hurt someone or bolster one's reputation without proper reasoning.

    Do the right thing and use that aspect of BHW properly so that we all can benefit from one anothers' buying and selling experiences.


    9. iTRADER.

    "iTrader" is a member rating system, similar to eBay®'s feedback system. iTrader allows you to leave a Positive, Neutral, or Negative rating for the performance of other members as buyers or sellers after you have conducted a business transaction with them. iTrader ratings are viewable by the public, which allows you to view other members' iTrader scores, and make a decision as to whether or not you should conduct business with them.

    Black Hat World does not independently verify the accuracy of any iTrader ratings and does not make any representations about the reliability of the iTrader rating system, and is not responsible for any such ratings. iTrader is only to be used AFTER a business transaction has occurred. If you are considering posting negative iTrader feedback in regards to a member, we suggest that you do all that you can to contact the other party to resolve your problems directly. Please be patient and remember that people have to sleep and cannot be online all the time. Do NOT abuse our iTrader system! We reserve the right, but do not have the obligation, to ban any user posting fraudulent iTrader ratings.

    I have found that a handful of traders hide their profiles. I think I've brought this up before, alongside others.... I personally think that if you have a BST, you should not be able to hide your profile from public view.

    Yes, if you've been on forums a while, you will know ways around it but it turns a 1-second job into 2 minutes.... I guess this is a @Diamond Damien question though

    Isn't it as simple as clicking on their profile and then 'Trade Rating' from the pop up?

    Edit: Can confirm it's that simple. Just tried it on a user who's hidden their profile.

    The staff can see them so if you have a question about their trading stats any one of us would be happy to help out.

    This thread was born from someone recently posting a negative itrader for a freebie... a freaking FREEBIE!

    The guy gives for free in a large way and someone acts inconsiderately because there was an aspect of the freebie that didn't suit their tastes.

    Please report inaccurate iTraders when you are hit with one... either positive or negative (I get both for Modding and always report them when I see them - more neg than positive of course) as it is just wrong to misuse a system in place that helps keep the buying and selling process accurate.

    No doubt it would be super if there were no restrictions like that in place; I have no clue as to the techie aspects of changing that but you mentioned Damien so perhaps he will see this when he is available.

    Good call Greg. After all, the iTrader system is in place for our benefit as buyers, so we definitely don't want it to be abused. And equally, sellers don't want it to be abused otherwise it will have a negative effect on their business.

    You can see in the reports, if you have not already, who got the negative iTrader and that guy gives a ton on BHW... it pretty much set me off.

    We need more reactions apart from the omnipresent "Thanks" button. Maybe a "Like" & "Laugh" button will do.
