i think they should be allowed as per modded consoles, and the semi-ecent allowance of the Playstation swapmagic discs being allowed when i got told off for trying to sell mine months ago.

We get regular copyright infringement notices for posts offering to sell these so I doubt we can allow them...

copyright infringemts from where? As i see it the cards alone can be used for illegal activity by stuff added, but the card alone isnt, also as pink says they are regularly posted in deals

why would anyone flash their 360? as i believe there is no 'homebrew' like there is on the DS and thus the only reason people do it is to play downloaded games...so these are allowed, so surely we should be getting copyright infringements as well?

After witnessing someone else get suspended for listing one of these cards, would it be possible to change the wording of the rule a little. At the moment, it states:

(4) It should go without saying, NO prohibited, classified or illegal items. This includes fake/counterfeit goods, copied media, ANY console cards 'TTDS', 'DSTT' or 'Pandora' batteries etc., cable TV boxes 'NTL' or 'Virgin Media' etc., money swapping' such as bank transfers of £xx paid in to others PayPal account for £xx amount, group specific discount codes such as 'student card numbers' for example, weapons of any kind, alcohol, tobacco products or illegal substances, gaming accounts such as 'Steam' which are non transferable and any similar trades will be expired and closed.


Could it have a small addition so it reads:

(4) It should go without saying, NO prohibited, classified or illegal items. This includes fake/counterfeit goods, copied media, ANY console cards [COLOR="Red"]R4,[/COLOR] 'TTDS', 'DSTT' or 'Pandora' batteries etc., cable TV boxes 'NTL' or 'Virgin Media' etc., money swapping' such as bank transfers of £xx paid in to others PayPal account for £xx amount, group specific discount codes such as 'student card numbers' for example, weapons of any kind, alcohol, tobacco products or illegal substances, gaming accounts such as 'Steam' which are non transferable and any similar trades will be expired and closed.


As the R4 is the name most known to everyone. It may stop one or two falling foul to this rule?

They are not worth selling on here anyway............few quid from Deal Extreme. Wouldn't be worth someone's time and effort for a couple of quid.

Depends if your motivation is making money.

Well if you are buying them to sell on at the same price etc for people then you are offering a service which isn't allowed. If people just want rid of their old one and can't sell it here then for a couple of quid i'd just bin it.

The amount money exchanging hands is immaterial. Offering a service is not against the rules(I think), "business like" behaviour is. The misc is full of people offering to help out other members.

99% of your threads are FS/FT threads, but that isn't classed as "Business like" behaviour because you are just getting rid of what you don't want with profit not in mind.

I think this is digressing from the topic of the thread, so won't drag it on. :)

Offering a service is against the rules. For example you are not allowed to offer a 360 flashing or repairing service etc. :)

I'd say 100% of my threads are FS/FT as i don't post threads in Misc or Deals at all anymore...........i'm just here to browse mainly. :-D
