Simple concept. Tribot allows users to Buy a verified trader rank. ie, they pay $50, and get a 'Verified trader rank' worth $50. if they ever scam, whomever they scammed gets refunded up to that amount.

 

 

Pretty simple insurance policy, haha. :P

 

Clearly some people don't understand the basics *cough, below, Cough*.

 

Anways, Let's give an example.

 

I pay TriLez $500 Via WU.

He secures the payment, and gives me a $500 verified trader rank.

Users see my rank, and now know that I am 100% insured UP TO $500 Dollars.

***Possibly only available to those with a certain vouch amount (to avoid scams such as those stated by bas below) Post-count is NOT an accurate indicator of legitimacy, and should NOT be used.

 

benefits:

Peace of mind

Sort out scammers

Helps drive business for trusted members

Increase revenue for Tribot(?) (maybe charge $10 a month to upkeep said rank... Or I'm sure most users willing to pay for a verified rank wouldn't scam anways..)

 

 

Cons:

Extra work. -> I'm sure you could work this out very easily. :)

so if two people who were friends faked a scam and said the other scammed him for 10k dollars they will refund it and both will make a profit?

 

/thread

 

You must be confused.

 

The payment would be secured, via WU, or another form of Chareback-proof transfers.. and then if said user was banned.. the person being scammed would be refunded up the the initial deposit.

Nice idea but I don't think It'll go well ; It'll take a lot of staff attention to run this system. I think there should be a verified trader rank though but gained with like 100+ feedback as well as a certain post count.

what if the initial deposit was 10k?

 

also don't tribot have better things to do such as fix randoms, fix the mac version, fix the store, fix the whole bot...

Feedback, and post count hardly attribute to the trustworthyness of an individual. Both can be fakes, or obtained with very little work.

Then the user would lose his 10,000 deposit, be banned from Tribot, and the trader would be refunded his 10,000? What part of this is confusing you?

This would not negatively effect TriBot at all, because they have no financial stake in it whatsoever. It's completely based off the Traders willingness to prove their trustworthyness.

 

I think I see where you are confused.. Let me try to explain.

 

Let's  set this up to what I think you're thinking.

 

I pay TriBot $500 for rank.

"we" decide to scam(?) lol.

So you sell me 200M 07 Gp for $500.

I scammed you.

TriLez gives you $500.

 

Oh wait, soo.. where did TriBot lose any money? they don't. The only thing lost would be the traders account, vouches, PC, etc. It would be a waste of time. No financial gain can be obtained through abusing such a system.

No,

let's say you have a 500$ rank.

Me, and two other people want to buy 500$ from you. you'd be trusted with 1500$ at once.

 

Along with that, the time it takes to get scam reports on this site is awfully long.

No support..

It is an idea. There are so many people scamming/getting scammed. They are coming out with a feedback system supposedly but this could also be handy.

 

I would say a certain post count + vouches that you can show a mod+mod verifies that they're all different people = a rank that can just state that you're trusted or have reliable feedback.

 

^ I think that might be a better idea than your idea of giving a certain amount of insurance money..although I can't say that it's a bad idea either.

I agree with the certain post count + vouches. Staff have more important things to sort out rather than a trade system at this current moment.

Nice! I like this idea. Basically, if someone who has Trusted Trader Credits scams, then they will be banned, and the person who was scammed, given that they provide proof of being scammed, will be refunded out of the scammer's "Trusted Trader Credits" and now that the scammer has been banned, Trilez would get to keep the remaining "Trusted Trader Credits"

That's a really nice idea. It's pretty much an insurance policy, not guaranteeing that you wont be scammed, but garunteeing that if you are scammed, you will get refunded from the scammer's "trusted trader credits."

There should also be a rank for people who do not pay money for Trusted Trader Credits, but are known to be a trusted trade, that way it is still fair for the people who do not want to pay the money for the credits, yet want to be trusted.

I summed it up because a few people seemed confused.

5/5!

I hope this can be put into action!!!

He was referring to a system where a user would receive a trust title based on the deposit they sent in.

 

50 dollars was the example.

 

Correct me if I am wrong.

 

That is correct. and $50 is not "steep" for being a verified trader on this website, LOL.

I like this idea and support Verified Trader Rank 100% but  it should NOT be buyable. First in order for this to work there would need to be an Automated Vouch system implemented first, then, Once you have aqcuired a certain amount of vouches/sales up to a certain amount of money you will be reviewed by a High up Staff member. Once they go through all your trades/ vouches and if they deem you safe/ trusted you get a Verified Sale rank.. Would be an awesome thing if implemented right.

    • Gradle is a build tool used to accelerate developer productivity.

      We recently setup a Maven repository (TRiBot Central) to make it easier for scripters to create scripts. Check it out here: https://gitlab.com/trilez-software/tribot/tribot-central/-/packages

      Furthermore, we've released a simple Gradle project to make it easy to run TRiBot and develop scripts for it. Check it out here: https://gitlab.com/trilez-software/tribot/tribot-gradle-launcher

      The goals of TRiBot Central are to:

      Deliver updates to TRiBot faster


      Better organize TRiBot's dependencies (AKA dependancies)


      Make it easier to develop scripts for TRiBot


      Make it easier to use and run TRiBot


      Note: TRiBot won't be able to run scripts from within this project until TRiBot's next release.

    • Hi everyone,

      I'd like to thank everyone for their patience in this transition period. Since last week, we've worked out the remaining bugs with this integration.

      Some users have still been having issues with connecting their forums account to their Auth0 account. To resolve this, we've imported all forums accounts into Auth0.

      Unfortunately, the accounts which were imported today were using an unsupported password hashing algorithm. Hence, random passwords were set during the import.

      What does this mean for me?

      If you've previously linked your forums account to your Auth0 account, you don't have to do anything. Nothing changes for you.


      If you haven't logged in via our new login yet,

      Try logging in with your forums email address and the last password you used


      If you are unable to login, please use the "Forgot password" tool on the login page:
      Follow the instructions to reset your password

    • Hello everyone,

      Last week we tried to roll out Auth0 Login, but we lost that battle. Now it's time to win the war!

      Important changes

      When logging into the client, you'll now have to enter your Auth0 account credentials instead of your forums credentials

      Note: 2FA is still handled through your forums account (for the time being)



      Changes for existing users

      You'll have to link your Auth0 account to your forums account here: https://tribot.org/forums/settings/login/?service=11


      Auth0 accounts have been created for most existing users. Please use your forums email address and password to login.



      Important notes

      Make sure to verify your email address upon creating a new Auth0 account


      When we mention your Auth0 account, we mean your account used for auth.tribot.org as displayed below

    • To better support the upcoming changes (TRiBot X, new repository), we're switching our login handler to Auth0. Instead of logging in with the standard form, you'll now be required to login through our Auth0 application.

      All existing accounts which have been used within approximately the past year have been imported into Auth0 using the same email and password combination which has been stored on the forums.

      What does this mean for users?

      Your account credentials are now even more securely stored


      You'll be able to login via Facebook, Google, and others in the future


      Is there anything users have to do differently now?

      Existing users: You'll have to login with the standard login, open your Account Settings, then link your Auth0 account


      New users: You'll be redirected to our Auth0 app (auth.tribot.org) where you'll be able to create an account


      Why was this change made?

      The new apps we are creating (such as the new repository) aren't able to use the forums to handle user logins


      To centralize all user accounts in one area


      To ensure that the client login doesn't go down when the forums are having problems


      To speed up our development


      Other considerations

      There's no documentation or official support for using Invision Community combined with Auth0, so there are still a few kinks we're working out


      We're in the works of creating an account management panel specifically for Auth0 accounts (ETA August)


      It's not possible to change email addresses for the time being (this will be resolved this August)


      Changing passwords is a weird process for the time being. To change your password, you'll have to use the "Don't remember your password" tool on the Auth0 login page

    • Over the past month, we've been working hard on TRiBot's new repository - a much needed update. This change has been deemed necessary for TRiBot X, and will allow us to really speed up development of all aspects of TRiBot.

      Today we are going to share what we've been working on!


      Now you must be wondering what kind of features the new repository will have.... well, you'll have to be patient for a little while longer. We're still figuring out various technical aspects so we can't provide answers to all possible questions. We're also focusing on development rather than writing about it so that everyone can get access to our latest developments at lightning speed. I will however answer a few users' questions.

      We're planning on a release of this early to mid August, giving users some goodies before TRiBot X's release.

      Thank you all for being patient. I hope everyone is excited as much as I am!
