Exclamation New Feature! iTrader Ratings

ScionLife.com has recently introduced the iTrader transaction rating system to the forum. The following are some helpful tips on how to make use of the new system to better the site.

The information that will be covered in this walk-through:
* Viewing Users iTrader Detail
* Rating a Transaction
* Edit/Delete Feedback
* Reporting Malicious Feedback


________________


Viewing Users iTrader Details:

To view detailed information about any users iTrader rating simply click their rating #:



And to view your own iTrader page go to: https://www.scionlife.com/forums/itrader.php or click your own rating in any of your posts.




Rating a Transaction:

The systems interface is very easy to use & is similar to eBay's transaction rating system.

To leave feedback for a user simply go to the thread in which the transaction was advertised in and click the sellers iTrader rating.
At this time it might be a good idea to copy the thread link for later.




This link will bring you a detailed page of the users iTrader rating. From this page you can click the "Submit Feedback for Username"




On the next page you will be able to input detailed information about the transaction.



You will be able to select which party you are in the transaction (Buyer, Seller, Trade) and rate the transaction (Positive, Neutral, Negative).

A link to the thread from which the transaction took place will be required.

Once you have filled out all the information you can click the "Submit Reply" button to leave your feedback.
Please be sure all fields are populated & accurate because you will only have a very limited amount of time to edit your feedback.




Edit/Delete Feedback:

Once feedback has been given you will have only 5 minutes to make any changes to your reply.

To do so goto the user's iTrader page, and click the edit button:



This will bring you back to the feedback page where you can modify your feedback.


To delete feedback simply check the "Delete this Rating" box and click "Submit Reply"






Reviewing your Feedback:

Whenever someone leaves feedback on your page you will be notified via PM with a link to a page with detailed information on the review.




You should take this opportunity to leave feedback to for that user by clicking the "Submit Rating for This Deal" icon:



*You can also access this link by visiting your own iTrader profile here




Reporting Malicious Feedback:

If you should receive any malicious, false, or incorrect feedback via the iTrader system you can report it to the Moderator Staff.
Simply click the "Report Bad Rating" icon () from your iTrader page.



Please give as much detail as possible when reporting malicious feedback & we will make every effort to investigate and respond as quickly as possible.

________________


I hope you find this walk-through helpful in navigating this new and exciting forum feature. Please feel free to post up any questions you may have about the iTrader system here.

This really, in a sense, obsoletes the Buyer/Seller Experiences forum... moving forward anyway. The only other time this forum will be needed is if someone has a really bad experience outside of the vendors on this site.

I think this will be good, although I have never had anyone on this site rip me off, but still their are some bad eggs here as well.

Just curious but is this transferable to other forums that use the same system?

AFAIK, it is forum specific. Like I have one rating over on NASIOC too... but a different amount here.

Though a central DB for something like this would be pretty nice.

I usually link to my eBay feedback if I'm new somewhere... that's what I did at first on NASIOC. I have like 350+ on eBay. No negatives ever.

Each site that uses iTrader has a separate database for that site only, and they are not shared between sites. It would be an insanely difficult problem to try to determine if "Fred" on site "X" was the same as "Fred" on site "Y" ...

HOWEVER, any site that runs on vBulletin 3.x or 4.x can install and use iTrader, for free, if they want to...

I get an error when leaving a feedback.

"There was an error in your deal details!"

I think I did everything right. Don't know what the problem is. Please help.

Hello, I'm fairly new to this site and I was wondering why it's not letting me leave a thread or give someone an iTrader point. It gave me 2 reasons and one said "if i'm trying to edit someone's post" or "my account has been disabled or not yet activated". PM me plz for I'd like to post up a great experience with a seller. Thanx

Fred, I believe the "problem" you are running into is that both the PPC forums and the iTrader ratings require a person to have been a member for 14 days or more, AND to have 50 posts or more.

This is to prevent "hit and run" sellers and ratings, and while it does prevent those who hare new or who have not posted much from full participation, it has proved a valuable requirement over the years.

Ah, I see. Well that's fine. I remember reading it on one of the sale sections but I didn't know that also applies for the buyer and seller experiences. Anyways, I'll be participating in more discussions/topics because to prevent "hit and runs" it's a effective policy.

Thanx for the info Tom

This has happened to 2 different people that have tried to leave me feedback recently after I bought things from them.....What causes this, how can this be fixed.....this isn't a 14day/50 posts issue, I think its something else
