What new rules ?


+1
#3
I've only just noticed this myself, after Rayman locked a thread a few mins ago.

I think it's cos of people selling 'insurance replacement' gift cards (which terms state can't be re-sold) and the freebie vouchers which people have been getting from surveys.

I suppose there's no way of proving how people have come to receive their vouchers (unless they have a receipt for them) so mods can't tell if it's profiteering or not. It's just easier to make them for trade only.

Vouchers can no longer be sold in FS/FT, only traded for vouchers from another store for the same value (i.e trade a £10 Amazon voucher for a £10 Next voucher)

theres no way of prooving how anyone has anythig for sale, it just seems to have come out of the blue, surely it cant be because someone tried to sell one they had one in the comp

Doesn't really explain why they can no longer be sold though, only that they can't :?

Shame if they banned giftards/vouchers for sale on here.............. that was one good thing on Hotukdeals....

25 PAGES of rules?
how on earth is everyone expected to know then and abide by them if they change every two minutes and nobody knows that have changed

I for one as many others I'm sure only read the rules when JOINING a site and not EVERY DAY just see if they have changed or more been added

yes, totally agree, been stated many times, then they start a new thread with new rules, then never bother updating them and even if they do they end up another 35 page long thread to read

but the 35 pages on the fs board is chat about them, the actual rules are in the 1st post

If they ban "vouchers" because it "might be stolen" then nothing should be on sale here............. as it might be stolen!!!........... So please lift this BAN on vouchers.:thumbsup:

It's easy to shout out statements, but difficult to appreciate the point that you're trying to make if you don't provide links to threadsin order to back up your statement.

Do let us know if you have a particular area of concern and we'll try to clarify.

it is, but you know how some people fail to read the rules properly?
Well that is what has happened here!

Just to clarify, vouchers aren't banned from FS/T - they can be traded for other vouchers on a like for like basis but they cannot be sold anymore as has been highlighted above (to clarify for any newer members reading the Feedback thread).

wasn't sure, maybe the mods could take a look at this thread and provide some clarification as I thought it was only like for like trades.

Please don't discuss other members suspensions.

For general guidance, members breaching a specific rule for the first time normally only receive a warning - this is classed as a reminder of the rules & carries no infraction points (it would be displayed as a yellow tag on your control panel). Conversely, repeat offenders do receive longer infractions & infractions carry a red tag.

First Offence - warning issued
2 points = a one day suspension
4 points = a three day suspension
6 points = a five day suspension
8 points = a two week suspension
10 points = a one month suspension
12 points = a full site ban or suspension

who has been suspended?

i was wondering how come 2 pts that was said was issued wasnt a suspension thats all

tbh i thought that this thread was started to clarify the rules and would of been enough for somebody to understand them, to of not then gone out of their way to break them a few days later.

can you please clarify which rules are considered a yellow card and which are a red card as i appear to have all red ,yet some of those were seperate rule breaks and not multiple same offence?

As explained previously a first offence is normally a yellow card warning (there would be exceptions for serious offences) subsequent offences normally have a red card applied - these carry infraction points. 2+ infraction points will result in an automatic 1 day suspension.

Members who have never breached a specific rule before will normally receive a yellow card warning. Subsequent breaches of the same rule would result in red cards being issued with infraction points. Whether you get a warning or a red card suspension will depend on your own personal history & how many times you have breached a specific rule be it a code of conduct breach, inappropriate language, multi ids, FS/T Rule breach etc. That's why warnings / infractions remain permanently on your control panel for review prior to any action being taken for a breach.
