It's been in the site rules for over a year now though for FS/FT

It's been on the news I believe.

But apart from that use the contact us button at the bottom of the page or report the thread in question stating that you want to remove the card and resume the trade. It is under the mods discretion to re-open it.

i saw the same thing in a comment a few posts into the thread of a similar post yesterday..

Basically deal was almost done n someone said he'd add a de cart with a few games to sweeten it, thread got locked within seconds and can't relist for a week..

Seems a bit heavy handed really, a simple, "you can't sell those here as part of the rules" take it off..

But nope..

Simple warning would suffice, yet mods seem heavy handed, maybe they're told to do it that way or it's just their choice not to show duedilligence..

Either way it's silly

Not really, the site cannot be a front for people to trade in illegal and stolen items....

its not exactly hidden in the rules though is it?
the site could get into trouble over it so agree with the mods on this one

Sorry, that's a little small minded, I didn't suggest for a second that sales like that should take place or be allowed on here.

I'm purely saying that though most people know these cards can no longer be sold, what would it take for a mod to just say, hey, these can't be sold so I've removed all comments, good luck with if sale / trade

I think the mods expect us to read the ruling's everytime we decide to trade. I know your not blaming ignorance for this but they can't really accept it as that either. At least everyones getting a fair lock across the board for the mention of cards rather then them getting away with it here and there.

You could always use the contact button for a definition on why they locked both your threads.

I'm not complaining that I can't purchase one, but I sold one through here before it became illegal so had no idea that this had changed. As soon as someone told me I said that I was now only interested in the console itself but the thread was still locked.

No cards were advertised, bought or sold so no laws were being broken.

Did you check the title and OP of your own thread or did you forget you asked for something breaking the rules in the OP. You are infact blamming ignorance, and the laws do not border on the actual sale, or buying, rather they are there to stop the sale before it even is offered. As stated already use the contact us button.

Have you been stopped from (immediately) started a new "Wanted" thread just asking for a console?

Any lock usually states 7 day ruling, but any lock usually implies that this is also the case, hence the replies given already asking him to either report his thread or use the contact us button, a mod would respond with the go ahead or the reasons why he isn't allowed too.

the outcome of the nintendo court case was it is ILLEGAL to "sell,import or even ADVERTISE these carts",therefore in actual fact to list one here is not just against the rules,it is actually illegal is it not. Therefore a threadlock seems reasonable to me. Now dont get me wrong-I use these carts so Im not some raving anti piracy type-personally I think they are great,but it should be remembered that its not just hukd rules that have been broken here-its the law.

The rules mention the "7 day rule" for relisting, but if you are asking for something different (i.e. just a console, not a console & a cartridge) maybe you can ask again immediately.

The offending thread:
[ http://www.hotukdeals.com/for-sale-trade/wanted-nintendo-ds-lite-card/821324 ]

As mentioned above, contacting the Moderators is the best way forward to be sure another violation of a term/condition of usage of the site.

The onus is on the member to review the trading rules prior to any thread creation. Once we start to allow some leeway, we'll be overrun with similar threads and responses. It's easily exploited and whilst it may not have been your intention, the blanket approach suits best. You're inviting offers for items that aren't permitted here, it's really for you to take responsibility.

You will also notice that the thread has had 6 posts (all bumps) as you failed to follow the trading rules. It's one thing to have a grievance about your thread being closed, but you shouldn't be forgetting about the other members who adhere to the trading rules in full. Each time a post was made in your thread, another members listing suffered demotion. The rules are in place so that fairness can be applied to all users of the trading forums. No incentive/unfair promotion should be allowed as a result of threads which fail to comply with the basic requirements of listing.


Finally, you can't reslist any item or repeat the same request until 7 full days have elapsed from the last post and closure.
