    New Rule! Please Read!

    Hello, lately you may have noticed that the marketplace is getting over populated with these service threads made by accounts that only have one post and no real reputation on this website. The new rule will force you to have at least 30 reputation or +4 Positive feedback on your iTrader to open a service. This is to help the service section from being flooded and for the buyer's safety (in such cases where the service is just a scam). Thank you for your time and all the best.

    -Brimblood




    Edit by Tracky:

    This rule isn't 'ACTIVE' as of now. We'll release another option to go against all the scams going on lately with a more user-friendly way.

    Very nice. I have been wanting something like this to happen since I keep seeing people with 1 post offering a service that seems too good to be true.

    I Rep only those who deserve it. It shouldn't be given away so freely.

    This is a good rule, but I still think that newbies shouldn't have access to the marketplace at all, they should gain some reputation and a certain post count before they try selling something on the site. This would definitely reduce the amount of scams.

    Well there are ways to get feedback besides services, selling/buying accounts or cdkeys. Maybe helping out in a MM like area if the people will trust them. Other ways to prove their trust to people.

    That would be a good idea. Force people to have rep on the website before they can sell anything, but I would need a few more mods in the marketplace to be able to run. To many threads for one person do delete lol.

    Don't I get to count as a staff member? make anti spam/scam rules without other approval, but I'm talking to tracky and ryan about it and if they turn out to disagree with this then I will delete this thread and reopen the threads that fell under this rule. They are only soft-deleted right now (I can't do more then that) so can easily be re-opened if this doesn't go in my favor.
