I am going to leave this open for a few days, and leave it down in the regular topics before pinning this up.
I've noticed (as have a few other Mods) that we've had a few people who, either intentionally or not, been putting topics in the WANTED section that basically are not WANT ads.
Rather, they are SALE ads for trade, that are very vague about what they do want, or have a list of all kinds of things they want.
Look, at this point, even if it's a trade only thread, it is still basically a SALE ad, not a WANTED ad.
A WANTED ad is for something specific: as in "Wanted: Gas Mag for a WA Uzi"
A WANTED ad is NOT for " Hey I got this WA UZI and I ONLY WANT TO trade it for a JG M4 or a CA MP5 or a BE XM8 Plastic gearbox only"
You all see the difference?
The first is clearly a WANTED ad, the second is a SALE ad that wants trades for payment instead of cash. It is still a SALE ad (and therefore, should be in the for sale section)
If you are looking to trades, you need to CLEARLY state what you are looking for. Then list what you have to trade. You CANNOT say "Hey I have this. Let me see what you have."
We made it fairly easy to get a free authorized seller account on here. It is not that difficult to get, nor to do what is needed.
Consider this fair warning. We are Watching. We see these going on. We will pull them. If you continue to do so, expect further disciplinary action, warn levels, suspension, ban... Again, we don't like going to those lengths, but there are too many people who want to go around the rules we put in place to make our BST system safer for everyone.
Thanks, and discuss... please.
