    "Caution Trading" Userbar

    I have seen this idea on another site similar to CK and I thought it may be worth discussing, seeing as I have had an experience where it would have been useful.

    When there is a dispute being sorted out, it might be of use for both parties involved to have a temporary userbar. One that reads something similar to "Caution Trading: Under Investigation"
    Staff would have the decision on whether this was necessary on case by case basis.

    The warning would hopefully stop any further people getting involved in the event that said people are scammers and could be removed as soon as the dispute was closed.

    Thoughts?

    but what if a user was under investigation and it was found that there was nothing wrong?

    I like this idea. Could stop people from scamming a bunch of people before they make off with tons of loot.

    The userbar isn't permanent. If they had a "Caution Trading" bar for a day or two then sure, people will not trade with them for that amount of time. But as soon as it is solved/they are found innocent it'll be and removed they will be okay.
    It's not a permanent dent in your reputation such as a bad iTrader score which stays until staff remove it.

    it's still pretty fucking tight to be labeled as dodgy when you haven't done anything wrong

    But you wont get the userbar unless you've done something dodgy.

    If you are involved in a dispute at all, even if you are just the victim of a scam it would be a safety precaution. It would be up to the Mods modding each dispute whether it would be needed, they can usually see who is in the wrong pretty clearly.

    Anyway, only a suggestion.
