I suggest you ...

discount

Educational discounts are great for students to get their projects done, but I do see a lot of abuse with this. I know that there are people that aren't students that are using the educational discount on parts, and students that are using it for their own use, ie. game pieces. This kind of goes to another suggestion that states if we have the ability to privately rate customers, we could at least have something there that states that they have been abusing their student discount or such.

I am not looking for you to vet these users, that is my option to deny the order if I think they are abusing it. But I would like to provide feedback for other hubs, and possibly have 3dHubs look at that over time.

        Fred - Yes, i get lots of those. But, when someone is printing game pieces for a table top game that they got off of Thingiverse, I tend to think that they are not for a class, but for their personal use. Again, I always have the option of not doing it. Just wish that it was a little more "structured"

        There are students with majors that would use printing for things that look like personal items. Art, design, marketing etc.

        it could be done so that the user has to upload a scan of their student id

        that would take the job of vetting the user away and make it easy for the hub to vet them, no student id no discount, expired student id no discount

        you should get my drift here.... hub should be able to verify things

        I also experienced this. I fully support it.
