i would imagine dealing via pm without it ever being listed on the fs boards cant really be seen as trading by pm off the boards, alot of us have made friends on here and chat via pm, if one of my friends pms me and says they got something they are selling and would i be interested has got nothing to do with hukd, although i do know where your coming from

That's the line I say.

Listing an Item, then selling via PM is breaking the rules.
'Chatting to someone' via PM/Messenger, etc then a sale is done, is not against the rules.

Also, the following should be infracted:

Spamming members trying to deal by PM only
Those who deal by PM and are scammed
Those who offer by PM to a listing on FS/FT.

Personally, I think we should either get someone capable of monitoring and pre-approving threads on FS/FT, and have a traders to avoid list or get rid of the section

That isnt dealing off the boards, its when it progresses to how much and dealing

That is against the rules though isn't it?

The people that have been scammed usually get PM'd, and then they only deal by PM.

How can it be against the rules, if i choose to swap games, or even buy games with a friend off here

I think the difference i'm trying to establish is that 'Spamming someone by offering your item for sale via PM' is different to having a friend who you chat to by PM offer you something.

I thought it was TBH. The rules seem to say it is(I think).

I understand what you are saying, but the rules do not make a distinction. I admit that I haven't read them for a few weeks.

brb....Reading the rules



Edit: It is a bit "Hazy" as to whether it is a rule break or not.
#12
I think both are technically a rule break. But I think one should be reported and one wouldn't ever be.
banned#13
as far as im aware dealing with friends via pm is not against any forum rules, as the item has never been on the forum to begin with, so how can it be against forum rules

I think we have to realise common sense comes in somewhere along the line
[mod]#14
I've checked up about this. The standard HUKD rules on selling items are :
(3) All sales MUST be listed and completed fully on the HUKD FS/FT forum.

(11) Offer and acceptance of trade or sale MUST be posted in relevant threads. Private Messages are for personal details only, you must NOT deal by PM .


Which is why we remove offers/requests etc from other forums. If someone approaches you requesting that they deal by PM & are reported they will receive an infraction.

But if two members who are friends chat by PM & then make personal trades etc as Sassie has said in post #2, it's then a personal matter & would be the same as chatting by email etc.

Hope that helps :thumbsup:

Only if they fell out, or if they "let slip" that they have traded.

This contradicts the rules still though

I see what you mean totally, but just saying that TECHNICALLY this is against the rules

Well yes, it is technically against the rules... but if the other person didn't report you we wouldn't know.

oh yh obvo...but technically if someone did this and it was mentioned on a thread for whatever reason...IF someone reported then surely Mods would be compelled to infract as its a breach of the rules?

Just thinking hypothetically here..obvo if 2 friends want to trade etc then its up to them and undoubtedly this will happen but just showing thats its not quite crystal in the rules

If odb offers me a rudey dvd via pm, and it has never been put onto the fs boards how can it be aginst forum rules, private messaging is exactly that, the same as an email, for my own personal use, or are you saying it is now down to hukd what i am allwed to do via pm with friends
