Secondhand Sales
« on: February 02, 2015, 12:48 am »
been seeing a lot of players trying to sell steam items for rp cash(i.e."Anyone have csgo skins and trying to make rp cash fast? pm me, got 9.5 mil") is this allowed? seems like its going to open up scamming options for people if its allowed

There's no rule on this subject really. Users can feel free to trade, but ByB will not be responsible for scams that occur as a result of trading.

If you ARE going to do it , do it with someone you trust! Because as conor said that we don't wanna hear when you lost 10$ in CS:GO guns. Its not our faults.

The issue arises when players begin to idiotically spam the OOC chat with their craigslist-esque garbage.

As admins, can we punish for the spam of OOC or Advert to sell non role-play things? I mean, if you really want to sell stuff, make a post on the forums or use other forums specifically for selling CS:GO items.

If its spam then I would imagine so. As for merely stating you want to buy\sell I am not sure.

If they are literally spamming OOC or Advert so it's filling up the entire chat box, then you can probably take action on them (warn / kick etc).

Perhaps publically saying it is a bad thing. I do believe pantho has said something along the lines don't publically advertise for it when players tried to give RP Cash for  supporter codes,admin codes, etc. We should probably say no asking about it at all in OOC/Advert.

This, entirely. Pantho's particular statement was in reference to trading supporter/admin codes for hats in TF2. I honestly do not see why the same thing would not apply to trading RP cash for items in CS:GO. With that said, there has been hearsay that iProxy has given approval to users that wish to do this. Not sure if srs.

I completely agree and I would love to hear Pantho and iProxy's view on the situation so we can go about it accordingly before it gets out of hand.

I believe we should be able to slap/slay/kick/ban for it.

I think a reasonable punishment for people spamming this is the death sentence, or public execution. Who's with me?  :)

Also this guys cheeky grin unsettles me.

I already said this was against the rules a long time ago, is it not in the MOTD?

Not against the rules to do with friends, but explicitly against the rules to advertise or even go around asking random people due to scammers.

I guess i don't see it in MOTD, I'll add it quickly.

If I wanted it locked, ida locked it.

Leave a thread open unless there is a point in locking it.
