    Such a list wouldn't be a good idea. It would soon turn into a giant flamefest as people start accusing each other out of sheer anger or jealousy.

    i usually dont rush anyone unless i know them or they are from these forums. it guarantees that payment will be delivered for your hard work. sorry that you got scammed, it happens to the best of us.

    If you find a trustworthy forum member that is. Unfortunately, even this forum isn't free from scumbags.

    Personally if I really need help I will ask from person that has 1000+ post counts. Well at least I think people with high post counts are relatively nice people.:hanky:

    Lol, I do free rushes every now and then just because I feel like it. Come to think of it, Remsy left before I finished his Nm rush.

    I try to guess if I am going to be ripped off by the username/character name. Hardly 100% accurate, but I am right more often than not. Names suggesting their sexual powers/features have a bad track record with me. Names involving pk activities dont do to well either. Silly names like you had are about 50/50.

    I got ripped by 'strawbaryshortcak' and a 'carebearz' too so its not all in the name LOL

    Even if they are offering forge or whatever for rush, I basically figure I am doing it for free so that I dont get disappointed. Also met some decent people thru answering the call for a rush too.

    It's funny how in rushes either people can get scammed. Either the rusher leaves after forge or the person being rushed ditches after meph.

    Personally I feel I am really trustworthy, at least all of my friends in my friend list do, but you know, no one can really prove if a person is trustable, so post counts maybe the best way to prove...

    Also, don't laugh with your 4.4k post, I bet at least half of them are spamming...:jig:

    Post count isn't a measure of trustworthiness. People willing to do things for others should be a better measure.

    I know, but unless you talk to that person in deep, you cannot do many things to know the person deeply.

    What I don't get is the fact that it takes maybe ten minutes to finish a rush from Mephisto. I have never understood why they can't just finish the rush.

    I have begun giving rushes lately since I have a couple good characters now. I find the average Bnetter to be a complete tool. When you join a game call "rush me 4 4rge", well, you kind of expect to be paid with the forge drop. It's funny to me how many people will grab the drop and save/exit. Then 25 minutes later they will be in a game called "Dig D goes down now!" or "plz kill Diablo". I started out giving rushes, but I think PK is my new favorite hobby. Don't they know that if I have their account name I can find out what game they are in?

    Because it takes ten minutes to finish a rush from Mephisto.
