Announcing PlateXchange, the Open Source License Plate Messaging Exchange Network.
PlateXchange offers an open system that allows web sites that communicate license plates to share their information across a network of niche sites.

 You need to devise a way for anyone who may be having second thoughts to be able to 'remove' previously filed wires, especially if you are going to share with others since that wasn't divulged to users when this site first started, and especially if you are going to start identifying which member filed a wire, even if only by member name.  I smell lots and lots of liability here for anyone looking to raise a ruckus for you.

When you identify members filing wires, eventually someone will find a way to locate their plate and the retaliation could clog the site and any other site that is picking up and copying your wires.

Lots to think about.

I don't want my username attached to the wires I've already filed.

 If I read it right on the blog, thats what will happen.  So I think we all need to be given the opportunity to remove any wires we don't want other drivers tracking us down for.  Especially not in south florida where they carry . . . . guns!

 From:   PlateWire: What the new version brings


"Wires: wires will no longer be anonymous. In order to begin building reliability and validity rules, I have arrived at the conclusion that your username should be attached to wires that you have filed."

"Verification of identity: there will be 3 levels of identity verification, with email verification being the only mandatory one for participation. Mobile phone verification will act as the secondary method of identification. Users with higher levels of identity verification will receive a higher validity score on wires that they file."

Ergo: some of us are going to get hung out to dry!  Thats why I believe the option to remove should be instituted above and before these new enhancements.  My gut just says they spell trouble!
