    Remove/Revamp the Verified Sellers section


    As far as i know the section has been active for something like atleast 4 months now (march or earlier) yet it's been pretty low quality for a couple of reasons:

    • It's not actively updated
    • There is no official process to be posted there
    • It's existance is a half-measure

    Starting from the top, the forum's been active for around 4 months or more, yet only 6 shops are listed here (2 of which are owned by the same person). It just doesn't make sense to me to list a place where supposedly verified sellers are, but not to actively update and add new ones, many people come to MCTrades daily to buy and sell but will likely never get listed there even if they have a great reputation.

    It's been long thought by myself and a couple of others that the inclusion of certain shops was biased in atleast one way, although Callum denied that in his announcement for the section, there's been no process to get added; even a spotless record for many months or years won't get you in, it's basically just whoever Callum hand-picks.


    In Callum's announcement to the section opening he said: "You are still buying at your own risk and we are not responsible if something does go wrong." ... "That being said we have had large shops exit scam in the past so please do be cautious."

    Opening a forum section like this just seems like a really waste of time, what's the point in telling people that these are trusted and verified shops but also big shops scam too and we're not responsible?

    My suggestion is to either completely remove the section or add an official process to get listed in it.



    Callum's message about taking your own precautions because even big shops have scammed before can easily be solved in a number of ways, my personal idea is to have shop's put down a deposit along with an official application to have their posts featured in the forum.

    If a shop passes a neccesary requirements in an official process, you can have them put down a deposit to MCTrades, say something like $500 or more (easily attainable by big shops) which in the event of any possible scams, would be paid out in the best possible way to victims.

    You'd probably be saying the same thing if you were not on there.

    But fr, I'm 50/50 about this. I do agree, but overall I don't see it as a giant issue. I do think the idea of a deposit would be a better idea than randomly putting shops. You can't guarantee someone isn't going to ES, there's been people on n.to that have been some of the highest repped members that have ES'd. It's gonna happen with some people and there's nothing you can really do about it. I think the "Verified Sellers" can seem unfair to some smaller shops (I'm aware you own a large shop, I'm saying in general) and that's why I'm 50/50 about it. It does seem unfair to some people, and I see why.

    tl;dr - I support the deposit idea, but not the removal of the section.

    i feel like we either have this section or not, making a whole deposit system abt it makes it very complicated and a lot of effort. 500$ wont stop a big exit scam either.

    Verified sellers should apply to all the forums, not just accounts.
