    Default B&S Forum Guidelines! *Read Before Posting! Updated 9/12

    In order to be a fair and safe community for trades and sales to take place, we would like to toss out some guidelines. Most are common sense, but itís becoming apparent that common sense is sometimes left outside the forums.

    1. No Backups. No Burned Games. Please do not post that you have those types of games for sale. If you do, they will be removed from your postings and you will be warned. Repeat offenders may be banned. Famiclones? Ok. Multi-Carts? Ok. Twisted Metal on a CD-R? Not Ok. Neo Conversion? Let us know up front. The device on which to play the games is ok (i.e. flash carts) but NO Roms on them.

    2. In courtesy to others, if you have multiple items you want to sell or are looking for please post them in one thread. The more unnecessary threads you create shuffle other memberís posts off the front page. Also, to conserve space, mods may combine topics at their discretion.

    3. If you absolutely must bump your topic, please only do so after a period of 24 hours. If you have new information to add, please add it at the time of a bump. If you add info after an hour and bump it, you'll ruffle the feathers of the mods.

    4. If itís your first time selling and you are new to our forums, please provide some feedback or references you have. Youíll find with these more people will be willing to deal with you.

    5. CHECK YOUR PM'S. Buyers and traders start to get antsy when their messages aren't answered. We understand that real life problems can sometimes get in the way, but it only takes a second to send a message saying you got their PM/email/payment/etc. and their package will be sent later/soon. If you are doing potentially large deals, please turn on the PM notification so you get a note in your email box.

    6. Don't march into a thread and state that you can get an item for $X on eBay or some other online store. If you think their price may be too high, don't be rude about it. If others feel the same way, then it won't sell. This is a hobby where each person gives an item a different monetary worth. While it's fine to look out for others, people should also do research into the item they are buying.

    7. Similarly, if you want an item that someone else is also asking for, it is better ettiquette that you create your own topic with your contact information, trade list, or the price you're willing to pay.

    8. Please limit your topics to BUYING and SELLING items only. Asking questions of an item's worth or what a good price for an item doesn't really belong here. These type of questions should be posted in the video game forum (or ebay insanity if you see it on there. ) The only exception to this is an attempt to resolve a deal here. (ie. the orochi where are you? thread)

    Checking & Sending your PM's can all be done near the top of your screen while on the DP site (near FAQ, Profile, etc.) If you don't have any new messages it will say that, if you have any amount of new ones, it will post the number. And as long as 'Private Message' notification is turned on in your profile, you will get an email saying that you have a PM.

    As for 'bumping' it's essentially moving your post up. Everytime someone posts to a thread, it gets put at the top of the posts in any given forum. After about a day, you can move the post by yourself to the top by saying bump (or really, anything you want. If you look in people's posts especially here in the B&S you will usually see it)

    If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to ask us!

    Fear your thoughts because they become your words
    Fear your words because they become your actions
    Fear your actions because they become your habits
    Fear your habits because they become your character
    Fear your character because it becomes your destiny

    Therefore: Thinking and nurturing positive thoughts, at any point in your life, can change your destiny.
