    BOI Category? Review the buyers and sellers of garter snakes

    Anyone else think it might be a good idea to have a section where buyers can post their thoughts on transactions that went on? I know this site isn't focused on the classifieds by any means but I think that if a buyer does a good job they deserve some sort of review. I might be way off lol because I know how much of a pain in the rear end the boi is on fauna...

    Thoughts?

    Absolutely not.. BOI forums are 99% slander and whiners who don't get their own way.

    It's a can of worms this forum does not need.

    because I know how much of a pain in the rear end the boi is on fauna.
    Exactly my point.

    I agree that the BOI is but I also feel that when a buyer does a good job they should be rewarded for it. Maybe if there was a feedback option for each person profile? I know on pbnation you can leave feedback for a buyer. Would this be an option. I also agree that the BOI in itself would be nothing more than what you said.

    This is a tight-knit community. Usually members ask other member(PM'S) about sellers before buying.
    Word-of-mouth seems to be used.
    I do understand what you are leaning toward though.

    They are not just snakes. They're garter snakes.

    I think if used the right way it could be a very useful tool as far as to make people more comfortable about doing a certain purchase. I agree with wayne though that most boi sections are used to bash and slanderize people instead of being used to help. I have seen several boi's where divorces and break ups caused the spouse to just start bashing and making up lies about the other,

    At worst, BOIs amount to lynchings, at best they're kangaroo courts.

    But if we move past the idea of BOI and we do like some sort of system in which a person who consistently holds up his end and sends out healthy great animals can be praised in some sort of way on their profile.

    Like the karma system on fauna? Or like visitor messages on someone's profile?

    Word of mouth and solid reputation has worked wonderfully here since day one.

    The reward is a decent breeder gets to cash the check.

    I for one have witnessed enough hypocritical ramblings on forum boards to sour anyone.

    Regretfully, I have participated in a few.
