thats what it seems like to me. As long as their is no thread then no rules are being broken, that is exactly what the mod in question has said

it all seems rather murky on one hand asb is saying don't break the profiteering rule and wait until the item is in hand yet it seems as if the dealing via pm rule is ok as long as there is no thread. so if that rule is ok to break then why are the other rules not ok to break?

the point is that trading by PM has occured. They sent pm's back and … the point is that trading by PM has occured. They sent pm's back and forth and agreed upon a sale. In which case a rule has been broken



[COLOR="Blue"]hmm i see it a bit differently, surely its fine to have talks before hand, then once its agreed make it public in the forum so it can be seen.

I see plenty of threads "FS: XXXXXX Reserved for XXXXX" yet these threads are allowed to stand even though its obvious some communication has happened before so it must be allowed.[/COLOR]

[COLOR="Blue"]yes because the thread allready exists, but where there is no thread surely its allowed to discuss a item otherwise that would be ridiculous[/COLOR]

No, you must always create your trades within fs/ft forum, no exceptions permitted.

All trades conducted within FS/FT must adhere to the rules specified and all members should follow the trading advice.

Failure to do that ensures that we cannot get involved.

As above, the rules are explicitly clear and apply to all trades within FS/FT. We don't encourage anyone to trade outside FS/FT.


Just to make it clear for anyone in doubt. Should a thread be started within FS/FT no negotiations away from the forum will be allowed.
