    Mods abusing power

    Ive suddenly been told im banned from lsiting anything in the console forum as im a "trader". This has come out of the blue by ascottishbloke. Id like to know why the hell this is and also where the proof is.

    Ive asked for more details and im getting fobbed off with 1 line answers.

    Can a mod, any mod please explain why the hell i have been picked out and made out to be a trader when ive sold 1 thing on this site in 4 years.

    He probably cyberstalked you to your eBay ID, where you've sold perhaps two things in four years, and made the decision based on that.

    A word about ASB though, he's one seriously creepy guy. He appears to keep a personal database with as many details on people as he can get his hands on.

    Google your own username.

    Your interest in console related trades has been restricted based upon your own listings elsewhere.

    Please ensure that you review the trading rules so that if you continue to use the forums here, you don't fall foul of the trader like status.

    Just cos you've only sold 1 thing in 4 years doesn't mean you're not a trader. You're just not a very good one with a sales record like that X)

    Ive sold 1 thing on here in 4 years yet im deemed a trader? Powerhungry mods i think., Id like to know who has reported me and for what. What would be to stop me reporting someone at random with no proof atall?

    As far as you recall? So basicly you dont really know, or care? you just decide that your a mod and what you say goes.

    Fantastic way to run a site.

    Don't really see what he does outside of HUKD has any bearing whatsoever, if he has genuinely only sold one item on here in 4 years what rule has he broken?

    If he's sold 1000 xbox's outside and 1 here where is that wrong?

    Incredible reaction given some of the sellers on here that seem to go unhindred.

    You've had four FS listings all with different descriptions - sound like four different consoles to me.

    Ill just reregister under a different name and sell all of the consoles i have stockpiled. Its just sad that a mod can go around doing whatever they want without any reason atall.

    ok, I'll do this as a one off.

    It doesn't matter how many you sell here. If we feel you have more than a passing interest in a particular line of products, we'll ask you to refrain.

    I'm not sure what the big deal is to be frank with you. There are dedicated scenes/forums that still offer you plenty of avenues for future trades.

    The thread was locked due to spam.

    OP - the other link provides enough to suggest it is you. Your other points are therefore invalid with reference to making up usernames.

    Regards

    What is the harm in being a trader externally to HUKD as long as you do not break the FS rules on here?

    Any credibility you think you may have had OP went when you posted that immature stupid thread linking to a mod on Ebay

    I kinda agree with Greg

    IMO his acitvity outside of HDUK shouldn't be taken into acount as long as he complies with HDUK rules. His username may not be unique or it may be someone pretending to be him (this was the arguement used by Mods to remove links to JFK and BG1 material on other sites).

    It prevents traders from exploiting the rules here. We don't permit trader like activity at all in the trading forums, no concessions.

    Check its me, go on. I guarantee you its not.

    My username on xbox live is not ricflairandy because it was already taken. Same goes for ebay and skype.

    Your just being a cock for the sake of it so im just going to register another account. You are a very sad man and i hope the power of being a mod gives your pathetic life some kind of meaning.

    I can just register another account and continue my huge history of trading on this site. You will carry on being a small time nobody who lives his life as mr bigtime on the internet.

    Good luck.

    He's obviously a trader on here too though. He's had four separate threads selling Xbox 360s over the last couple of months, and claimed above that there's only two consoles (one being listed three times) - the descriptions are all different though, and match those in the thread ASB highlighted.

    There is no rule to say how many times an item can be listed is there, just a restriction on how many of the same item can be sold.

    hopefully this deserved crackdown means a thorough check elsewhere on the web for trader like activity on those selling ridiculous amounts of clothes and toys.
