The key to a successful commercial platform is safety in the flow of money-- that, and a core set of popular content creators.
FurryNetwork is heading in the right direction with its existing Commission system, but a feedback system would allow both creators and commissioners to get an idea of whether or not they should expect a good experience from the other party. This would pair well with a verified artist system as mentioned in an earlier idea of mine.
This idea was inspired by Amazon, Ebay, and other commerce platforms. The FN system must differ, however, because of the smaller user base. Averages aren't as stable a predictor, and each review matters more. Reviewers must be accountable for their reviews, and their subjects must have some manner of appeals process.
Just some thoughts.
