Description:
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Trader Ratings has evolved from my vB2 Buy/Sell/Trade User Rating System. This is a rating system for when members buy / sell / trade items from each other (presumably on a FS section of your forum). It is based on the honor system since there is no way to truly tell if they did engage in a transaction. (But I'm working on a way to fix that.) Trader Ratings came about because it was a pain to try and maintain a single thread listing good / bad traders and so far has worked out quite well.

Features:
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
• Rate another member: Positive / Negative / Neutral
• Specify Buyer, Seller, or Trade
• Leave comments about the deal
• Records date when rating created
• Specify a URL to the deal
• Display ratings over time
• Filter based on Buyer/Seller/Trade/or feedback they left for others
• Users can edit/delete ratings left for others (time based limitation)
• Admins & Mods can edit/delete anyone's ratings (just incase)
• Stats page showing best & worst rated members, and recent ratings
• PM notification when a person is rated

Basic Info:
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
I haven't written a FAQ or any real documentation yet, but the way the system works is very simple. The only part that might confuse someone is that the Feedback Score is based only on UNIQUE members. Also, there are simple checks in place to make sure they actually do select proper info and enter a comment. A user is not able to rate themself (obviously). Permissions for viewing / rating are similar to standard forum viewing / posting permissions. Also it checks to make sure users exist and all that good stuff.

Installation Info:
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
This hack is very simply to implement requiring only:
• 1 new file
• 5 new templates / 2-3 template changes (navbar, posbit/postbit_legacy, MEMBERINFO, memberlist_resultsbit)
• 52 new phrases
• 1 new DB table / 1 table DB change & index

An install/upgrade PHP file is included to do all the template/phrase/DB stuff, so basically you run that, upload the file, and edit your postbit template. BAM!

Beats me, Everything else is being displayed except for the link to add feedback. If I try to go to it directly by point to traderratings.php?u=1&do=feedbacknew it get the message:

Brian, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:

Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.

I didn't modify the traderratings.php file at all so I can't see how that would do anything. Any other ideas?

Hey Jason! Very nice Hack!

But iÄve got some problems with it....

I've installed it ~3 month ago and now it makes some problems:

I've rated a guy in my forum. He had one positive rating (rated by me) and i wanted to leave him a second... worked fine but: (i translated it in german...)

Bewertungen: 1
Positive Bewertungen: 100,0%
Positive Bewertungen von Mitgliedern: 1
Negative Bewertungen von Mitgliedern: 0
Positive Bewertungen insgesamt: 2
How is that possible?? he got 2 positive ratings by me and theres only one listed....

I also changed the Value in the DB but no effect...
And i edited the ratings... still no effect..
I also gave him a third positive... no effect except there are 2 overall ratings and 3 positve...
there are NO negative ratings...

Edit: it seems that the ratings by the same Userid dont count....

Stussi - The rating is based on unique users. Thus if you rated him 1,000 times, then it would still only give him 1 point.

lifesourcerec - if you wanted to merge over his ratings, you would probably need to search the table for his old userid, and alter them to his new userid. Also you would need to take into consideration users he rated. That can get kind of messy depending on the total rating numbers.

Once I find his old id, how would I alter them over to his new one? change the old id to the new one?

I would like to add a box in a members profile area that shows the last 5-10 feedbacks. Can anyone help with the code I need to add (if it is possible)?

Any idea if there will be an update regarding the merging/changingofmembernames/id's? We've already had some trouble with this and asthesite grows, it's only going to get worse.

Great addition, though! My members are using the hell out of it!

Just a very small change I thought other people may be interested in, or have some comments on...

In the navbar on various pages, the "View Trader Ratings", "Edit Trader Ratings" etc link to the user you are currently editing - to fit in more with the traditional vB breadcrumbs style, these should perhaps link to the parent page, with no user specified.

Ideally, these would link to a page appropriate to the action in question, e.g. an edit/submit page where you can search for the user, but for something so simple and effective, that over complicates things rather - To simply have each link return to the trader ratings page, simply remove

from each of the below lines in traderratings.php.
