    I see lots of topic giving or trading steam gifts, but it blantantly says on the top no DLC...Once i tried to trade a HIB code but my topic got locked, I'm so confused.

    Also: if not in the right place, my bad please move

    Depends on what you were trying to trade it for. HIB is sort of a gray area, as it's meant to help out charities and seeing how people can pay practically whatever they want for it, it could be seen as an unfair trade.

    I believe they changed the rules to allow "dlc" and "digital" codes to be traded now.

    I think it was because it's so easy to get scammed when it comes to digital goods, I could easily give you a fake code and take money off you. Also how can an admin prove who's in the right and who's wrong? One person could say "I gave him a working code and he's used it and is lying about it not working" then on the other hand the admins can't exactly test a code if it just comes back as being a dupe because there is no information of when it was used.

    It's all up to staff discretion. It is a gray area, and there are no set rules about it as of yet. That is to say, they are currently being revised.

    I would suggest anyone that has anything to sell that falls into this gray area PM a staff member and ask if you have any doubts.

    Ah i see now. Most of the trades there were 'secured' by steam trades...not codes. But some were codes. aidaunno. Thanks all
