Giving Reputation / Ratings for Reps based on deals / follow up in the comments
We all know some Reps here are so much better than others,
Every time the dealfox guy (http://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/58254) or the memory citi guy posts a deal http://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/69283 my fingers twitch to buy them. And judging by the comments, I am not alone. Last count atleast 8 people said they bought the memory cards even when they didn’t need them because the deal was so good.
I think there should be a way for users to add to the rep's reputation by giving him + votes that stay with him on his profile for future deals. Say for exp like "Stars" next to their profile name or something else like that that makes them distinct from other reps.
I hate it when reps post a deal and then don't follow through with replies to questions in their comments etc.
If a rep has been posting genuine good deals that get over 200 + votes for the deal, how about adding a logo recognising the efforts and the reputation of the rep here?
This will encourage the reps to post more deals here will add to the reputation and give them a slight advantage over other fly by night operators. Might also encourage genuine new reps to post good deals to gain a reputation.
