Default Blockthisguy.com - Ideas for my new website?

Hi guys, after being a member here for a while and noticing an alarming trend of deadbeat bidders and malcontents on Ebay, I decided what better way to track them and their history as well as create dynamic blacklists for us to import into ebay than a website devoted to this purpose.

I registered BlockThisGuy.com and will use my programming knowledge to build a custom website tailored to how we want to use it.

Here's what I'm thinking, and I'm open to any and all suggestions for the site to be as usefull as possible.

1. Registered members (It's free) can submit reports of dillweed bidders. This will contain the category of the item they bid on, their ID, the problem itself (From a list of categories which you can add to) as well as a description.

The bidders that are reported will have a rating if they have multiple reports.

You as a member can then select 1 or as many categories as you want, and all bidder ID's that are in those categories will then be compiled into a comma separated list that you can easily copy and paste into your ebay block list.


That's basically how it will work. I know it may not be perfect and I may be overlooking something, and that's where you come in. I'm looking for ideas and comments before I actually start programming the site.

I would join.
And then you could post it on every sports card site (Beckett, COMC, etc.) to get those ($*#^&@) off of eBay.

Just be careful you can't get sued if an unhappy person makes the list and decides to call an attorney for defamation or something else just as ridiculous.

You should divide it into a bidder section and a seller section. There are enough bad sellers out there as well.

This is exactly what I'm looking for. I didn't even think of that, but it's a solid idea and will be incorporated into the site. Thank you! You get two free bonus point coupons you can use at any of our imaginary local discount stores.

This is an awesome idea. Why did it take so long for somebody to come up with it?

We've had the BLACKLIST on here for a while now, lol.

A simple site like this should only take a few hours max to code. I'd even suggest using the eBay API to verify that the person submitting the "report" actually made the transaction with the deadbeat, just to avoid retalitory reports from a seller who might have made the list.

Check w/ our resident lawyers but I'm sure you'd have to have in the fine print somewhere "For Entertainment Purposes ONLY" just to CYA.

I concur with what somebody else said about someone getting all legal over your butt because he finds out his name on the list. I'd be really, really careful because if people sue over stupid stuff like hot coffee that is "too hot", there is bound to be some nut who would make your life a legal nightmare.
Otherwise....great idea!
