    I think there should be added one thing to the rules..
    I know you don't like it when people "complain" about the rules, but this is nowhere near complaining, just want to clarify something for others.

    just so people won't sell their services here, as a service isn't an item really.... (we have had one of those threads here so, i think it might be a good update..)

    Its okay if you dont like it, this is just a suggestion.... thank you beutiful nice gbatemp hotel.. [​IMG]

    What kind of services? Plumbing?

    "OOOOH tsk, we don't have that part in stock at the moment. I'm afraid it will take 6 weeks. Oh and don't worry if we suck money out of your account. It'll make your water heat up faster".

    I think we need to do something about the ninja situation first, they are getting pretty bad IMO.

    That's too many "or's"...

    How clear do the rules need to be?

    Do we need to start listing things by item to make the point that selling anything here is not gonna happen?

    If someone try's to sell something the topics gonna end up closed, if someone wants to try again there gonna end up gone from the board...

    Well, there might be people who will find a loophole in the rules. In terms of services, people will probably email them for (God know why) and then it'll probably change to, "howdy, wanna buy my gimp?"

    Also making snow angels in the mud on any pre-determined Tuesday while wearing hiking boots and holding a ladle all while chanting demonic phrases will not be tolerated.

    This needs to be added to...just in case!

    It was a good thing I was holding onto a fork last time.

    In case if you can't tell, we don't think that we need to be that specific about it.

    You can't find loopholes in the rules, if the staff don't want you to do something and warn you or ban you, thats it. The decision is made. This isn't a court of law or a democracy, haven't you noticed that by now? [​IMG]

    I KNEW this wouldn't be taken serious, and sure you don't need to listen...
    but posting:

    "For just 32$ i will mod your nds"

    Is okay, because he is not selling an ITEM...

    well for your knowledge: There was someone who was selling his service here a few weeks ago i think, where he wanted people to send their nds's to him, so he could flash them, and for a litte price ofcourse...

    Look, the bottom line is you cannot sell ANYTHING here period. So if someone feels they want to interpret the wording of the rules to exclude the sale of services, then they are looking at a short stay here. Whether we take your suggestion on board or not at the end of the day you won't see anyone being allowed to sell items, services or they're bodies on this board.
    Also I don't recall seeing anyone offering to flash DS's and I certainly don't think the thread would remain open for long if they tried.

    It breaks down like this :

    It's not ok to sell anything... Period...

    Why?

    Because we fucking said so..

    Is that clear?

    Really the rules don't state your not allowed to sell your children do we need to add that too? Do we really need to point out the human trafficking isn't cool on this board?

    We expect an fraction of common sense to go with the rules, do not sell anything here...

    Why is that so hard?

    Luse yeah i know it was closed, since i suggested it while it was still open and all... but there's no reason to use that "aggressive" tone... I understand if you dont want to change it, IT WAS JUST A SUGGESTION!

    gee... fuck

    For you, I will sell you Luse-seeking hot poker sticks. The first one's free (sorry Luse [​IMG] )

    Luse I suggest not getting too worked up because in future there might not be as many suggestions from the members. Suggestions are ALWAYS welcome. Sometimes good sugestions show up, sometimes bad, and sometimes little nit picking ones. But they're all fine by me.

    I don't see what's wrong with this suggestion. It is a bit nit picky but updating the rules isn't the end of the world and it's a good idea.

    Luse and Ruth are right though, the rules aren't a concrete legal system. You can't go find a loophole and expect to get away with something just because it's not listed in the rules...

    We; the staff, decide what goes on this board, and if you don't like it .... T.S.

    I highlighted that at the top of the rules just to clarify!

    yeah, i understand that, since i've been in a situation like this before... with puck, (aww, he wasn't too nice to me)..
    anyway, I made a thread where i wanted people to listen to a band, and if they liked it send an email to them for me to win a contest... which after reading the rules is quite clear for me now.. but before i didn't see it as anything wrong (even when reading the rules) so i thought it was okay, and well, it wasnt...

    so This was just something to maybe prevent things like this again, i mean, if people not that smart, just like me evidently, create a topic about something they think are okay since its not in the rules.... (some parts more or less obvious)
