Why does a new member who pays for the service and comes on to sell is a problem. I mean he isn't breaking the rules. He has the option to trade or sell.As long as he is using the sell folder and puts prices on each item. I'm good. I would have the same trust for someone who just joined as someone who has been here for 10 years. Especially if I've never dealt with them before. I don't think we should get mad at people for posting but take the aggrivation out on the moderators lol. To me it doesn't matter why someone sells something. I would be more annoyed with reading why someone is selling their items. Anyone can leave a sad story to boost a sale. We don't know what is the truth or just bs.

What I am referring to are people who try to sell without going through the proper listing procedures, refuse to provide scans, etc. Those types of threads are more likely to be fly by night scammers (not all are, just that they are more likely) and we can investigate to some extent.

They are just posting to sell and get money and that is it. If they are paying for the OPG and adding the cards to their organize to sell then I have no issue. If they joined yesterday and then post a sale thread today but have nothing marked for sale then that is an issue to me.
Slightly misread that, sorry. I was saying the same thing I think just used different words. If they pay and use the system then I am fine with it.

Its time for Quasi-Sellers to either have their own Forum. join the Marketplace or take their items to ebay and let the rest of us try to find some Traders again....

Remember, a person must be 18 or older to even post on the boards now, not just to trade or sell, like on the beta board
