1. Trade Forums only thread that may be created where the opener actually sells or buy any goods related to PRO. When it comes to trading in general it can be discussed in the sub-forum called "General Game Talk". This rules is created to help players browse easier through Trade Forums if they are looking to buy or sell something specific, so they won’t have to browse through a lot of unnecessary "Off topic"-Threads.
2. Scamming / deceiving other players when it comes to trade is prohibited and will result in punishment.
3. Fake bidding / selling with the only purpose to waste the other side's money + time is a punishable offense and its never accepted in our community, this one will result in punishment.
4. No harassment when it comes to trade. If you don’t agree on the price that it is being sold/ offered for, simply don’t buy it. Any unnecessary comments will be deleted and on repeated abuse will be punished with warning points or even more severity punishment.
5. No accusations of scamming, fake bidding and other things in Trade Forums /Trade Channel, especially without proof. If you accuse somebody in their trade threads without proof it’s considered as harassment and will lead into punishment.
6. Trades outside PRO is not allowed and they also may not be discussed here.
7. On the Trade Channel, please do not spam unnecessary amounts of symbols/ letters in your trade shouts in order to get attention. Any other form of spam is also not allowed and will result to mutes. If this rule is broken multiple times a kick / ban will follow. Posting the same trade shouts multiple times within a few seconds is also considered as spam. Keep at least 5 post between your first and last trade chat post to avoid spamming the chat.
Do not use the wrong channel, just trade related only on the Trade Channel for anything else please use "Help" or "All" -Channel.
8. For no 2-7, if you find someone who broke the rules you can report it here on Report Center. Don’t forget to attach the solid evidence (screenshot) with detailed information when making the reports.
