    A couple of the last few shit lists have only highlighted a concern to be wary of certain members.
    How about a little flag next to their name to show that they have been shitlisted in the past 30 days.

    Maybe expires, maybe doesn't, what do others think?

    +1 for this, maybe even change the avatar to a pirate flag and user title to "Shitlisted" until they don't resolve the issue and put the url of the relevant shitlist thread into their sig, but maybe not all of this lol

    nevertheless some kind of distinction would be good

    That's a good idea. Even better if their signature is automatically changed to something like "Hey, check out my new shitlist thread!"

    The problem is that this immediately stigmatises people without having gone through the process or being given a chance to put their side across. Would this apply only to the sellers or to the buyers posting the SL thread too?

    I can see the attraction of highlighting it but being in the SL forum doesn't mean someone's automatically guilty. Ideally, if you're considering doing business with someone and you're not sure, checking the SL forum for their name should be one of the first steps a buyer should take when researching the service.

    i think it was meant only for the accused party, SL threads are subject to approval, so i guess a mod checks some of the facts, before it could go live, so it's not like innocent people can get accused, at least in most of the cases

    i can imagine this, that the accused gets (one of) these remarks on his profile when the shitlist goes live and it would stay on his/her profile until the case is solved, maybe even after that (with an expiry date or without), if it was a serious case or the accused is making habit out of appearing on the SL

    A coiled turd besides a BHW username would definitely have me turning around and walking the other way..

    Nifty idea, for sure!
