The Black Market

Post by Mr Rockeye on 11/5/2014, 09:00

Hello dear members of the United Community,

Recently the word has gone out about a black market on the United Community forums.
So because of that I will let you vote whether we should add or ban the black marketing on the forums.

What is a Black Market?

A black market is a place were goods are traded. But the goods that are traded aren't supposed to be traded.
For example if a game has a in-game currency the currency will be sold for real life money, but the game owners don't want that. Since they will lose a lot of profits on this they will of course try to stop it (which never succeeds).

The Risk

The risks in this game of cat and mouse can be pretty high. Some values go for hundreds of dollars.
Although the risk is high the profit will also be high which is good, if you don't get caught.
Probably the most common risk is to get banned on a particular game, which is why you shouldn't trade with your main game play account.

So here are the ups and downs about the black market. Post what you think about it below and don't forget to vote in the poll above!

well, im gonna say yes/no

it would sortive lead to a bad reputation of this forum if we do something like that... im not even sure if thats allowed at all, plus it probably wouldn't be active... still not sure but i guess i don't care if its added, i won't use it for making money, ill use it for in-game money like in terraria how there are coins.

If you only allow Moderators+ to trade in black market for the time being then yes.

Yeas obviously, but we don't exactly have to trade our cash ect, we can middle man trades between players/forum users just to prevent scams..

I can make the black market section visible for members+ and some more:

  • I think everyone should be able to trade.
  • The once who've gotten a trusted badge are backed up by some kind of insurance meaning that if they ever scam (the ones with the trusted badge) that the victim will get some kind of payment for the damage. This would also mean that the trusted badge isn't just a badge you could get.
  • The black market should have its own little team to solve the problems, as I've seen on some other forums it could really get messy if just normal staff who go over all topics make some decisions, a focused team would provide more success. (if we reach a specific amount of people of course)

I agree on that but a full refund would have to be return if someone with a trusted badge does scam, further more i wouldn't mind looking over RS and black market sections Very Happy

Wouldn't black market section automatically push away some people who don't want to deal with anything that has anything to do with breaking rules?
I guess it depends on what kind of people do you want on these forums. Normal RS players or RWTers?
So I voted other.
But.. I don't get the point of trusted badge if black market isn't coming?

Suggestion was to broaden our target audience and to increase the amount of people on the forums.

I could make a 'mob' group which would be trading in black market stuff, you would only have to post on a specific topic to gain access to the blackmarket.
Good idea?
