Thanks Gary =) ... Pretty sure the *Thanks* are just thanking someone for their reply to a post and has nothing to do with selling...

notice I'll hit thanks for your reply here...

I wish I would have notice a long time ago about the thanks button..  I would have definitely put a big thanks to Nick for all the awesome frags he sold me awhile back.   I think he has very fair and is very easy to do business with in my opinion.   so a +1 for Nick

On my mobile device, there is no option for thanks.

Otherwise I would just be thanking everyone who came into the store, lol, cause you know it's hard to walk out without leaving some cash behind.

I have to agree with Johnny, I too am way more funny in my head than in text.

You know we have brought this up before and will bring it up again in Presidency meeting. We are having one within the week and I will bring it up. Thanks!

Isn't that simply whom ever shows up with cash?

Just that people need to start using it more often.  When you look up someones Member's Profile you can see how many times that person has been thanked.  I would feel like someone with a lot of "Thanks" would probably be someone good to buy from or sell to.

We should all start using it more in my opinion.

Doesn't seem like the "Thanks" button would be much help in determining a verified seller. I only took a quick look but it doesn't appear to be used very much.... Am I missing something?

Good to know on the "thanks" button.  I'll make sure to use that.

So i looked at my own profile and I have a few "thanks" How do you get them as I never knew I even had them?  This way I can thank others.

I like the idea. It is good to let member know who is doing a fair trade so the next one can be carefull on dealing with the person who does not follow through the trade or sale.

I do look at the things you mentioned Reefdup. It does give me more confidence in buying and selling from and to strangers. I didnt really think about how big of a burden it could turn in to for you guys. Im sure I speak for every member on here by saying that we do appreciate all the time and work you guys put in to keep this awesome site going.

My own personal $0.02 is this...

I'm asked to arbitrate sales gone wrong quite frequently, even though I wasn't involved. It's difficult to get both sides of the story fully and to give fair recommendations. And, some people, no matter how fair of a resolution I suggest won't be happy until they get everything they want for absolutely nothing in return.

I expect we would see the same for a "verified" status. Yes, the vast majority of the time, people would probably receive a good rating, but we (as the Presidency) would probably end up spending the majority of our time trying to resolve poor ratings. Our (volunteer) time is spent tracking down speakers, arranging donations for raffles, fundraising, dealing with spam, etc. We're not complaining. We're just limited on how much time we can dedicate to certain aspects of the club. And, adding more people to the Presidency doesn't necessarily solve anything (more people in management often means even less gets done).

That was my own personal viewpoint. I will no longer serve on the Presidency in 2014 as I cannot dedicate the time required. What the new Presidency council decides is entirely up to them.

My recommendation is this. Instead of having a "verified" status, look up the person's profile. See how long they've been in the club, how much they've posted, and (in my opinion the most significant indicator) see how many times they've been "thanked". Getting a "thanks" may not be directly related to selling, but it does show how valued that club member is to the group.

I believe that legal counsel would be that the presidency not attempt this because of the hassle involved in accomplishing fair treatment and for protection of the WMAS and themselves from libel suits.
