Just wondering if it were possible to made "Trade Feedback" part of the ranking up, or maybe an alternative to just reputation. A lot of successful traders may just buy and sell here (which is the same as giving back to the community, like a guide). They usually dont get +repped for this.
I like this idea.
Well, when you trade, you give to the community, but the community give to you by allowing you to trade.
When you get reputation, you are truly giving to the community or have helped someone and in turn you are ranked up.
If this was implemented, it would be abused harder repping for giveaways.
The itrader system is easily abused. I don't see this going over well. Trading has always been separate from ranking up on neopets forums.
Examples- If any clraik user needed an account cracked asap, I would do it for free. I gifted a 10 year old account to a newbie today who was chain frozen. I receive no +rep. Just because I dont make guides, I have no change of ranking up. Same boat as anyone else who doesnt make guides.
By abused, he means fake trades.
I like the idea, as I trade a lot, but in all honesty, I don't think it's the best one. I think that you should have been repped for helping them, @Bettser, but if they don't, we can't do anything about it since we're not allowed to ask for rep. It's really up to the other people and their generosity.
If you have time to trade - to play Neopets - you have time to make a guide.
Nothing against you, but you've only been here about two months.
If it was super easy to rank up, everyone would have been ranked up by now.
Should that person have repped, or at least thanked you, definitely.
Just keep doing what youre doing and helping out and you will get there.
I can't even begin to count how many times I have given out accounts, items, etc etc and not even received a thank you in return.
I've lent mspp, bgc, etc for free and after telling somebody it's done I got no reply, no thank you or anything.
You will get there eventually, just keep at it. Guides are definitely a good way to get some recognition.
Doesn't have to be neopets guides even. Any guide will do!
@Bettser The easiest way to earn rep by far is making Youtube videos for Joe!
They take forever to upload but are quite quick to make and they get more members on the site (I've had two referrals already)
(: At first I thought I was never ever going to get official but then I made a few guides and uploaded some vids and now I'm 3/4 of the way there and got three vids waiting to be looked over by joe.
