the trader ratings system was designed to be an additional tool to use for rating an experience you have had with another member during a sale/buy/trade transaction. it is not a substitute for any existing rating systems out there like ebay or heatware. instead...it is just another way to rate a member. this is especially useful for those who dont have heatware or ebay.
the new tracking system is designed to make things much easier for us to track and respond to your suggestions and/or error reports.
