It isn`t something we`d want to get involved in. It brings up all sorts of potential complications, and that isn`t really the role the forum plays.
We do have a section for Supporters only, where member to member exchanges can take place. Certain conditions have had to have been met in order for them to do exchanges. I can think of some members I`d trust to exchange with, but I wouldn`t want to publicly endorse/validate anyone.
This idea or the second part of it I saw on an Arabic forum where exchanging money through accounts are so needed. (and it's working).
Now the idea of validating members is not easy but the forum actually asks the member who wants to be validate to bring some certifications about him self, and whatever documents they see it's necessary, then they post a list of those members names, when the forum still explains that since they did their best but still won't account responsible for any future problems and it'll be strictly between the members, specially the technical problems.
But it's also great for the forum it self start it's own money exchanging, since it's reliable and trusted.
Other member still can offer their exchanging offers.
Anyway it was a thought, whether it'll work or not is up to your judgment and any further consideration in the future.
