Originally, it was:
+2 good
+1 neutral
-10 bad

This had the unfortunate side effect of suppressing a lot of neutrals, as you don't want to raise their rating when giving a warning.

It's supposed to be:
+2 good
+0 neutral
-10 bad

But I don't think this has caught up yet.

And really, the scores *should* be recalculated under the new scoring.

Any Negatives or Neutrals? *You* ship first, regardless of rating!

Hey kingpin,

Try this link instead of the one at the top:


You should be able to check a member's rating using his username on that page.


Woops, I meant this link: ref_view.php

I didn't know his real name, only his user name. Also, what is a rating based on? How is it calculated?
By trading with me you agree that all signature based trade rules are not in force. If it isn't in the PM thread then it doesn't apply.
