General Rules

  • English only.

    Most of our members and officers are English-literate, and people in some countries use English as their primary (and only) language. It will be better and easier if everyone just use English to communicate. This is also for officers to easily moderate unwanted messages.

  • No Begging.

    Do not ask other members for free stuff.
    Although people do occasionally giveaway free games out of generosity, deliberately asking for free items is unacceptable.

  • No personal attacks / racism.

    We welcome members from different country, different culture, and different race. If their trade offer doesn't please you, please just decline politely and move on. Officers will try to keep the group as neutral as possible, and will do whatever it takes to keep the peace. So do NOT start any personal attacks. Do NOT start any flame wars.

    In conjunction with several anti-spam rule listed above, this rule is listed specifically for people who go into group chat, and send a chat / trade request to each and every member in the group chat. Please do not do that. Post your trade offers in the chat and follow the anti-spam rule listed above. Do not send your offer to everyone in the group chat. If any officer receive any complaints from several members, you will be prosecuted.

    Officers will do their best to keep the chat neutral and friendly. Anyone found to be disrupting the peace will be kicked / banned.

  • A kick means a warning.

    You can rejoin the chat after a kick. If you do not understand why you are kicked, please ask the officer in-person. Do not repetitively question an officer's decision or challenge his judgement. If you received a kick, you probably broke a rule. Officers have no obligation to "warn" you before a kick. As the title said it, the kick is a warning in itself.

    This includes "bumping". Do not bump your trade offers within 12 hours, implicitly or explicitly. If your post is reported, you will be banned from using the forum for a period of time, and your trade post will be deleted.
