CC Forum?

  1. I'm not sure if this has been asked already somewhere,(Haven't gotten fully acclimated with the site/features yet) but will there be a forum here comparable to CC?

    Coupon Connection. Think of a place to trade miles, points and awards.

  5. Ahh thank you. I hope it is moderated to the extent of the one of FT. At least some requirements to have access and lists of bad trade partners etc. to give some security to the traders.

    I hope that CC-equivalent is added only after much deliberation.

    A clean CC forum with controlled access would be a welcome addition.

    I think we can assume Randy's statement on the matter, ("It is not, however, intended to be a Moroccan Bazaar") can be taken as an indication any such forum will indeed be regulated.

    With no intended offense to Morrocco, its Bazaars or any other African, Turkish or MIddle East bazaar. I'm sure many of us have had wonderfully rewarding experiences in such places!

    But I like the idea that I won't be sold some Rolex with no internal mechanism out of a briefcase by a shifty-looking man in some back alley in exchange for my ticket to the lounge.

    While not official, I think you'll find our exchange place to be highly regulated. The current plan is to restrict the posting type and style. This should lead to a reduction in moderation time, but also decrease significantly people operating as brokers. We want this to be an area where members can be generous with other members, but not a place to make a buck or break program rules.

    However, the last sentence in that statement reads "The forum, and any exchanges conducted in the forum, will not be moderated."

    I never had any bad experiences over on that other site, but I only ever used the CC forum to give away drink vouchers etc. that I didn't have use for. Which reminds me, I think I still have some WN chits that are bound to expire...

    I really do think everyone (except the brokers) will agree that the exchange will be a manageable place to stop by and visit.

    Randy's post is clear that the forum will not be moderated. Presumably, it will not be a general forum, however, and may be restricted to Silver and above, for example. While I think this is a HUGE step in the right direction towards making a marketplace more trustworthy, I've always wondered about how challenging it would be (technically) to implement a feedback system like ebay uses for trades. As CC demonstrates, simply achieving a high post count isn't a definite indicator of trustworthiness. A feedback system open to all to see, however, would be much more transparent.

    We're not quite ready to roll this one out. But, I think it's safe to say that our plan for the exchange should make the need to moderate it diminish exponentially.

    Agreed. Some controls right from the onset would probably be best.
