1. All post bodies concerning Shroud of the Avatar player to player transactions or services are limited to this section of the forums. Unwanted solicitation in other sections of the forums or via chat or private message is prohibited, and could result in account restriction or ban. Posting more than once per week within your own thread, "bumping" it to keep it on top, bumping within a week of the first post, and daily replacing a post with a new one is also considered spam and is therefore, prohibited. Bumping is allowed once per week, if the new post contains information that is meaningful to the original thread (i.e. price updates).

    Activities that involve real money exchanges between players are not allowed. Account transfers are not supported. Items purchased in the SotA Store, such as Pledge and Bundle Rewards, Add-Ons, Stretch-Goal items, and Player Owned Towns, as well as services that can be immediately fulfilled in-game (such as renting existing in-game property or items) are the only permitted exchanges in the Player Marketplace.

    We will not restrict exchange of goods but we will not officially endorse these exchanges due to liability issues and staffing bandwidth. No in-game or chat based real money exchanges are allowed. Exchanges are at the players own risk and governed by the Terms of Service of whatever third party platform. Portalarium reserves the right to restrict any activities if they cause widespread issues for our community or if these activities involve exploits of any kind.

BEWARE players are already scamming the community . . .

    I think we're talking apples and apples here. Bottom line is - Friends and Family is the worst way to do safe trading. PayPal doesn't have your back (seller or buyer). If both parties know each other and understand the risks, it works fine. But with scamming now becoming a thing, players should know that PayPal doesn't have their back - and chargebacks only work when the money comes from your bank/card - and it's not a guarantee either - it's more of a courtesy, unless of course legal processes are kicked off and then it becomes a nightmare for someone.

    The information that needs to be out there is that using PayPal Friends and Family puts buyers and sellers at risk - buyer beware, because if what you get isn't what you paid for, the chances of getting your money back are slim and none. And seller beware because the buyer could do a chargeback after receiving the items... Now the seller is out his goods and his cash.

    Best thing is to use the PayPal invoicing system... it's an extra step but it makes the trade a little safer.

    If someone is trying to scam you by using PayPal or credit card it is fraud and you should contact the bank and then the police.

    For the renaming of bags, I dont like to see that feature being removed, it is better to find another solution.
    And please open your eyes when you buy something, and if someone is trying to scam you in game write down their names, there will always be a pattern or they will start bragging at some point.

    Perhaps we need a quorum of people in the community we can depend on to manage this? Not sure how far that could go. I'm wondering if this is an area we can tap to help police this kind of junk.
