I had a thought about recent scam attempts here and wanted to run this by the management
How about creating a sticky at the top of the selling forum where AF members can post when they've had a successful trade or sale with someone? Just something specific, short and sweet - no other comments allowed. It would be a feedback system that, while not being much help to new members making sales, would allow users to see that user x is okay to buy from...or not, based on feedback left for that user.
It wouldn't have helped with the recent couple of scams, but might have saved a few people from dealings with Raven"I likes 'em young"darkness.*
