Behaviour While Replying To Trade Threads

Post by d1g1t »

Do not shame/mock/or post unsolicited trade value advice

If someone's trade demands are unreasonable, other people will not trade with them. Those are the consequences for people with 'unfair' demands. Do not make unsolicited posts telling people that their prices are wrong or 'op' or giving them your own valuation.

This does not mean you can mock, insult and bully such people. Do not reply to threads telling people what you think of their valuation, unless you're trying to make an offer, in which case talk about your offer instead.
And remember that they still don't have to agree with your beliefs just because you told them nicely. Your valuations aren't magically better than those of other people, no matter who or how many people agree with you.
There is absolutely no reason to abuse and be rude to other people just because you don't agree with them.

I did not create this game for bullies, so if you treat other people like crap, you're going to get banned and all those pokemon you are so proud of will be released.

Do not make vague replies

If you are replying to someone else's trade thread, do not just ask them to check your accounts or trades.
If someone says they are looking for TS or Exp, respond with a list of 3 to 5 of whatever you believe are your best pokemon that qualify that thread owner's criteria and then post your username asking them to check or privately message you. Do not make a post that only asks the person to check your account. It's a waste of everyone's time and as far as hijacking someone else's trade thread.
