If people are willing to buy the items then i dont see a problem. just the way it goes
#3
how much were they going for then>?
#4
No. They should be dealt with at a Mods discretion depending on the rule deemed to be broken.

Yeah I suppose that does equate to 'mods discretion' :lol:

you cant identify every single person that is trying to profiteer from this site, so it isnt a viable solution
#11
[COLOR="Blue"]i think a warning is good enough, if they continue to break the rule then a ban would be good.[/COLOR]
#12
not for the 1st offence...but for repeat offenders then yes they should be
#13
Okay, I'm still a bit of a noob on here...

[COLOR="Blue"]on the top left mate, theres topics and forums, if you look at forums theres all the different sections.

you can find the FS/FT forum if you click on For Sale/Trade button under forums, its where we buy sell and trade items.[/COLOR]

the Xbox glitch bargains are starting to appear in the FS/FT forum ,My question is should people who try to profiteer from the good will of this site face a ban ?


It would be nice if they sold them well under face value but still made a decent profit, that way the buyer gets a great deal, the seller gets a profit (and knowledge that he has helped someone else get a cut price xbox) and everyone is happy. The alternative - ebay - is that the buyer gets fleeced, the seller makes slightly more after fees but not much, and ebay/paypal take a completely underesrved chunk of cash for no good reason.

That's how I think it should work anyway, I appreciate the "not for profit" mantra is drummed into the mods pretty hard these days so I don't expect agreement.........

profiteers should be banned yes, but regardless of where they got the items they have for sale, as long as they are still selling below the average RRP, there is no problem.

profiteers or people acting in a trading like behaviour get banned from the fs/ft forum at the moment as the quoted poster knows only too well.

yes i agree they should be banned from the forum completely as it is against what the site stands for
#19
dont you mean a suspension? a ban would mean they would never come back to the site

I saw a post yesterday from a user boasting they had "bagged" a cheap Xbox 360 and couldn't wait to "list it for sale"

Ethically wrong.... or just trolling?


boo hoo people are allowed to profit from things, they might be listing it on ebay so who cares

Anyone got a database of the attempted profiteers so I can add them to mine?
