I've done business (selling to mainly, some buying from) with all these members and have always had a pleasant experience:
@jack123
amk522
Aussiebochur
dovy2
joey123
menachem_m
Sammy12345
tripper
yitzyul
Yordai Dooma

There's a bigger list but I'm not including them since the transaction amount was pretty small.

I hope they can say the same for me  :)

What about how I just did the wiki? Just an idea. Feel free to edit.

Even without a wiki I think this thread could be searchable, not that tedious is it? Even if it theoretically grew to 100 pages, just search for a specific username? Or would that not work.

If anyone can change the wiki,  how reliable is it?

Not at all...
-1 someone is bound to notice if you add your name and as bad as it is to get a reputation of doing bad business it's even worse doing bad business and fooling everyone about it
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

If the wiki get's 10s of names (or even 100s as the OP intends) it wil become extremely impractical to start monitoring who made which edit...

True but if I see my name next to some guy I never did business with I would be really pissed and make a ruckus about it

true, but if I focus on the same 10 names that lubaby just listed and then continue to see who else aside from lubaby recommends
in that same group of 10 people again and again, then I'd be more likely to trust them. Especially with a hotel room and mini-bar.

If Aussiebochur is the one that got married a few months ago, then a bunch of us know who he is and can vouch for him, too.
(Therefore, should we include those who people know personally?)

It's at least better than nothing no? If you are about to sell something to X, check if X has any references on here. If yes, and you want extra security, PM a couple of those people and confirm. Slightly annoying but not a completely valueless resource is it?

definitely true and worthwhile if there is a risk of more than a few dollars

That might work for someone willing to go through the hassle...

Agreed. However - it is way too easy for a person to start making himself several usernames and listing those relationships as successful in the wiki. It might sound farfetched but is really not that difficult to do. Especially with ppl willing to risk doing that for one bigger size deal. You only need one of those things to happen to basically nullify this entire thread and on the contrary get ppl to blame such a thread for inviting such behavior for ppl looking to scam and cheat.

If I see someone with 5 recommendations and they all have 0 or a few posts I wouldn't consider that much of a recommendation

If you don't feel comfortable trusting someone ask him for references.

Theoretically, yes, it's easy for someone to do that, and they can make 4 or 5 usernames each with thousands of posts, which will take many many hours.

But it's still better than NOT having this resource. If we're gonna get scammed, let's make them work for it.
