An important update all members should read - we have added a new member group. It is called "No Trading" and credit for the idea goes to MKII.

The purpose of this group is to restrict access to the buy\sale\trade sections for individuals who have had deals gone bad on here due to what we feel are suspicious circumstances or severe negligence. This member group cannot post in or even see these sections.

All transaction initiated here are "at you own risk", but we ask everyone to take special care to look at someone's member group before dealing. If you are solicited a business deal by someone in this member group, we ask that you report it A.S.A.P. To a staff member, as they are engaging in prohibited behaviour.

Nobody needs to fear being placed in this member group, as long you are honest and responsible in your dealings. This group was created to protect our members, not to scare them. There just comes a point where complaints and suspicions have to lead to action of some kind.

The group now only has one member, and they may honestly have done nothing more than be negligent. We are not calling anybody a scammer per say. Some collectors items can be quite pricey, and serious action must be taken when hundreds of dollars are involved. I hope you all can understand.

If anybody has any specific individual member related questions, I ask them to please contact myself or another staff member. If you have general questions about this new group, feel free to ask away.

That is an amazing idea to keep scammers out. Good thinking MK and thanks for the implementation Stinger. I have a quick question, is it possible to search for a users :cussfit: in the :cussfit: thread or do I have to go through each page looking for :cussfit: left about that member?

Credit for implenentation of the new group goes to MKII as well. The whole staff (myself included) deliberated on the issue and did some investigating. I just made the notification here and served as the one who spoke with the specific member in regards to the issue.

MK's idea was most definitely a fantastic one!

As for the :cussfit: issue, I think you just have to look for it yourself. I went page by page and did a browser search for the member name in question for our investigation. It doesn't take real long that way.

Good work Staff. I'm impressed that you guys put in the effort to make this place a safe one to buy or sell with other members. Unfortunately there will be people that will come here and try and take advantage of others.

Great Job :applause: :applause: :applause: :applause: :applause: :applause:
