Rules For Buying/Selling/Trading: "Classifieds" (Read Before Posting)

Remember that this forum is a community for discussion. It does not exist to help you make transactions for your personal benefit. If you violate any of the rules below, your account is subject to silencing or suspension.

If you decide to conduct transactions with other players, be aware that it’s all generally against 2K’s TOS/EULA. Depending on what you transact, and how, you may receive a ban.

This site does not promote or condone any buy/sell transactions of any kind. Whether you buy or you sell, you do so at your own peril. The site has no interest in it, assumes no responsibility, and has no ability to help you if the transaction goes poorly.

Guidelines and Rules:

  • Don’t put prices in your title if you want to keep a long-running thread. After a while, you will not be able to edit your title and would need mods to do it for you. Please be self-reliant by not putting prices/quantities you have in your title, to avoid having to change those later on.
  • Update your Price and Amount of MT to sell with replies to your own thread. These will count against your 1 per 24 hours bump.
  • Any reply you make in your thread will be counted as a bump for 24 hour rule. So your Classified thread is not the place to have easy conversation. If someone posts something that you want to respond to publicly, you need to save your response for the body of the reply you’ll post for your next 24 hour bump. Or respond to them via DM.
  • Do not post in the threads of others, for the purpose of criticizing their pricing, advertising your own, those of a 3rd party, to talk about something else, etc. If someone is not offering a good deal, then that’s for other people to decide, not for anyone else to point out, argue, derail, etc.
  • Don’t expect full control over what others post in “your” thread. This is ultimately a discussion forum and some discussion prompted by what you posted is totally acceptable and to be expected. People may make suggestions and if they are apparently trying to be helpful, that’s fine. People may ask questions and, if natural and related questions, that’s fine.
  • Categorize your post as “Classifieds” category.
  • Do not make duplicate threads. Update your last thread instead of making a new one, if you can. If your last thread is so old that the system doesn’t allow you to make a necessary edit to the title, you can ask a mod for help with that. But make your titles ones that do not require updating to note new prices or amount of supply. Update those details via a new reply.
  • Do not bump/update your thread more than once per 24 hours. Do not make the first bump until at least 24 hours after you’ve created the topic/thread. And do not bump again until at least 24 hours after your last reply in the thread. And no trivial replies/updates to your own thread to de facto bump it more than once in 24 hours.
  • Do not “edit-bump.” Do not try to sneak in bumps by editing posts/replies, which may bump your thread. If it’s a formatting edit that makes sense and is done very. quickly after posting (i.e. within 5 minutes), that’s fine. But if moderators feel like editing is being used to bump the thread, the thread will be temporarily closed as a consequence.
  • If you are making a Classifieds post about an auction you have up, this means you can bump once in addition to the original post. This only applies to auctions, not MT.
  • 24 Hour rule is firm. 24 Hours means at least 24 Hours, not almost 24 Hours. (Note: When site time-stamps “1d” for “1 day,” that’s approximate. You need to click to see exact time and make sure you do not bump within 24 hours, exactly.)
  • There is a post limit for new accounts so best to not try to “do business” with a brand-new account or you may run into the post limit.
  • Do not make multiple accounts to circumvent the new account/post limit.

Violations of these rules may result in temporary or permanent closing/unlisting of your thread and/or silencing or suspension of your account. Generally, dishonest behavior will result in silencing, suspension, or banning of your account.

If you decide to conduct transactions with other players, be aware that it’s all generally against 2K’s TOS/EULA. Depending on what you transact, and how, you may receive a ban.

This site does not promote or condone any buy/sell transactions of any kind. Whether you buy or you sell, you do so at your own peril. The site has no interest in it, assumes no responsibility, and has no ability to help you if the transaction goes poorly.

1 bump for 24h is meaningless. What’s the logic behind it as long as game has 4,12 and 24h auctions options? 12h would be tight enough in a WORLDWIDE game, people selling from different timezones in the same AH. Sorry i don’t respect this unless u have a really good reason behind it. @HarryLundt @kinsman @2KGamer

Rules are rules and I’m good with it. The only thing I don’t like is not being able to edit. I wish editing wouldn’t effect bumping. As a seller prices change sometimes and stock levels change but having to wait 24 hours to edit those changes I wish wasn’t part of the 24 hour rules. If this could be fixed where edits don’t auto bump a thread that would be cool.

@Ddrop: right now your thread on your Curry auction is #8 in Classifieds. It’s in the Top 10 of Classifieds without having been bumped more. If people are looking at Classifieds, your post is prominent.

@jusbro92: This is a good point. What I would say is, for the time being: edit your original post and edit the last post/bump you made to reflect current information. Edit your title. Then you can make current Price/Stock level known, without bumping. I don’t think editing bumps stuff to the top, so you can edit as much as you want.

Hey

Just edited the Rules to add this:

After a while, you will not be able to edit your own title .

  • You can ask a mod to help you edit, but you will be at the mercy of their availability and inclination.
  • So we suggest that you do not put pricing into your title, if you think you will change pricing.
  • You can also start a new topic and then put in a link to the older thread so people can find feedback easily.
  • But our advice is: don’t put pricing in the title so that there is no need to change the title if you change pricing.

@2kgamer I think harsher punishments should be made on people that break the rules. People don’t read the rules and some just refuse to follow them no matter what. My suggestion is a progressive type banning system. 1st offence 24 hour lock of thread, 2nd offence 24 hour ban, 3rd offence 3 day ban, ect. It seems to be the only way to teach people to follow the rules and respect other posters. For all the people that follow the rules , respect to you all :+1:

Updated to include the above rule.

Did a little modification of the master rules for Classifieds. To basically stress these points:

Keep in mind that:

  • When someone posts a Classifieds, it’s plain courtesy to not use their thread to discuss things that are unrelated to their thread, that derail its intended conversation.
  • Despite the above being true, when you post a Classified, you’re still posting in a discussion forum and discussion is natural. There is some latitude that doesn’t violate rules or common courtesy. Such as making suggestions that one might consider helpful, but which are meant in the spirit of being helpful, and which should be treated as such.

hello, I apologise since this is probably silly question but how can I start my own thread? My accounts has been registered for quite some time now but I cannot find any button that would enable me to create a thread.

Thanks and take care

Did you ever get this resolved? I’m having the exact same issue, seems to be nowhere I can actually start my thread and my account has been registered for what feels like ages now.
