    @Keileon You can easily circumvent most restrictions regarding off-site links by using a group full of dragons that you name accordingly.

    "Let's Discuss Trades"

    "Forum Name is XXX"

    "I'm XXX on [insert other site]"

    "Always looking for..."

    "2nd gen SA kin"

    "2nd gen Prizes and Prizekin"

    "Especially bronze Tinsel"

    "ND is auto"

    "Thanks for reading"

     

    You... get the idea.

    We really need a designated wishlist dragon...

     

    But if people are going to circumvent the restrictions anyway by doing this, what's the point of having that as a rule? 


  2. Just randomly thought of this while reading through the replies:

     Wouldn't requesting an AP'd egg be the same as asking for one of the specific Thuweds when they come through? I've seen plenty of people ask for certain Thuwed hybrids or offspring from one of the pairs for that week. Is that not technically the same thing as asking for one of the eggs you sent to the AP because it's just a matter of hunting for the right thing at the right time? Or is it just somehow different because one is a Thuwed and one isn't?

    Cue me going "The trading hub has rules written down on the site?"

     

    I still haven't been able to find them... and I've been playing DC for a while. If punishments are as severe as the OP says they are, I can understand this being an issue for newer players especially.

    Unless "Describe what you’re offering and/or help others understand what types of offers you are looking for. If creating a public trade, your message should be applicable to many people using the trading hub, not just a specific person." is the rules...? There really should be a link to more specific rules there, of all places... I seriously cannot find any more specific rules no matter how much digging I do.

     

    That's because that's it - those are the rules, and they've always just been very vague to me. I wasn't sure if I was supposed to connect rules between trading on the forums and the hub, and even then, it's never really specified anywhere that I can't put up a reward for an egg in return. I renamed the parents, but I wanted to make sure that the person would find it worth it to return the lost dragon by offering something in exchange. I didn't realize it would get me banned from making public trades.


  4. Maybe it's just me, but I've had a lot of problems with my trades being reported for things I didn't even know I was doing wrong. I think that the guidelines or rules for the trading hub should be updated or rules should be made much more clear to prevent people from having the same issue I have had. 

     

    The rules, if I remember correctly, state that the trade must apply to many people, not just one specific person and must not include off-site links.

     However, I have had trades reported and taken down for things I didn't know would fall under these categories. This has happened three times for different reasons and I am now banned forever from making public trades. This is honestly very frustrating because not everyone uses the forums and you're more likely to get offers in the public hub.

    I have asked in Tiny Little Questions before about what is allowed after I had a post reported, and apparently IOUs are not permitted and neither is mentioning to contact someone via the forums. This is never specified in the trading hub guidelines. How are people meant to draw this conclusion themselves, especially when I've seen many other people post about the same thing?

    The same goes for the most recent issue I've had where I mistakenly auto-abandoned an egg and put up a reward in exchange for its return. This trade was reported and I was banned about four days after the first post. I have seen many people post the same thing and at this point, I almost feel targeted? I don't even understand how this would be against the rules as everyone would have equal opportunity to get the egg I lost and offer it, just as they would to breed or catch something and offer it on another trade.
