    Is there a way to have a Wall of Shame? This would allow members just one spot to look instead of having to do a full search for a particular vendor. This could be tied to member to member sales as well. I've been reading lots of complaints on here of others getting burned as well as myself. I recently posted this idea in another thread that was titled Passion for mopars but thought this subject needed to be kicked around a bit. What do ya think and what could it include?

      We already have a feedback system for member to member dealings.

        No. That's a "we already have such a system" --

          I think he's suggesting a feedback section for dealings with vendors that are not site sponsors or affiliated with FBBO.

          Exactly! An actual forum titled Wall of Shame. Not something that is done through a search.

          Which, in my experience, doesn't really provide much. You would think that it would. But I have found that most people don't bother to look a vendor up like that before they purchase.

          Further, people that post negative stuff in places like that often overdramatize what happened. (go look at yelp for examples)

          Plus, an ongoing thread like that will likely get confusing, where people reply to someone and you don't know exactly who their replying to.

          In the end, its one of those "looks good on paper" kind of things.

            I understand what your saying and I can also see the potential problems down the road. I agree with what your saying with yelp and the reviews. I thought I'd just throw the idea out there to better protect the members.

            The problem with most reviews is that most people taking the time to review something are upset about the item, or shipping, or just have too much time to complain. I would guess less than 5% of all transactions generate a legitimate complaint, but 90% of those complaints get negative reviews....and only less than 5% of satisfied customers write positive reviews. Just a guess though....I read reviews before I buy, but I filter through the b/s and focus on the quality factor.

            If the thread created here contains appropriate wording aka company name ect....When someone performs a simple google search under that name that thread will appear on the first page.

            Jason,

            For example google, "Passion 4 Mopars" and you will see that thread you are referencing to....So it does work but the one "searching" has to be diligent enough to do a search....

            On another note,

            As far as "reviews" go...this is not yelp, yahoo, amazon ect. This is a mopar forum with real people spending real money with honest complaints. Over the years I can count less on one hand where someone complained about a vendor or part that was unwarranted. So to say one has to filter complaints here just doesn't equate in comparison to amazon ect....Clearly different entities.....

              Agreed, a simple google search and or forum search can provide more than enough detail, was just trying to clarify for him as there seemed to be some misinterpretation on what he was asking.

                Not only Yelp, Amazon had a huge problem with bad reviews that weren't even customers. Kind of like a SPAM thing.

                Exactly. A wall of shame is just a convenient spot for internet trolls to trash people. Doesn't work.

                    True and they can post a thread in any of the forums looking for reviews on a vendor.....along with simple google searches....
