with all the scamming lately maybe vortex should just do away with the classifieds.
Actually this *has* been tossed around many times before.
Like Stephen pointed out, the biggest issue for a rating system is that the only people that should be able to *give* a rating are people that have purchased something from the person they are rating. To track that would require us to have the transaction go through our servers so we know who has done a transaction with who and that they can now rate that transaction. This also means us taking and transacting money as a middle man and there is no way we want to be involved in this mess.
So do we outsource our classifieds to someone big like eBay? Or is there a market for someone to build a big overall automotive classifieds solution on a real searchable database? This takes tremendous time and will likely result in having to charge for the classifieds. So as a company we've decided not to stretch ourselves too thin going into too many directions and rely on our forums as a classifieds outlet.
