I'm really glad this rule was put in place. People are selling pets for close to $100 dollars o_o;

I feel the same as you guys here. I was hoping that once I got bored of this game, I'd hope to sell my pets to help pay a fraction for my university fee's {In English money, it's £15,000 for my course}

But I guess it makes trading a lot easier now. And I have to stop acting like a spoilt child and run some errands now.

Personally, I don't think it's right to sell other peoples art.

And plus, you could buy a REAL pet with that money ;)

I'm glad that this rule was put in place. C:
Also, I agree with L Lawliet--you can buy a real pe for that money!
It's rediculous, really. To be honest, you can play with real pets more!

Thank you Nick!

I, for one, think it's sort of ridiculous to trade real money for virtual pets.

The whole art theft thing, I don't agree with. You're selling artwork, but you're not putting your name on it or claiming you made the art at all. You are selling that persons art, its almost like being an art broker (sp?), someone who buys or obtains art and then sells it.

You don't have any way to protect the traders from bad trades with real money, but you also don't have any way for trading with other Site Currencies as well. It's exactly the same thing. Yes, I bought pets with real money, and yes I bought pets with other off-site currencies as well. Never was I scammed in any way. Get to know your trading partners and it won't be much of a problem.

I may be alone with not agreeing with this new rule, but honestly I don't care right now -.-"


I don't agree with it at all and I also think you should ban all other offsite currency trading as well if this is the case.

Chiambisu wrote:Kajoken, I see your point. But it is never sure if you really get the pets you paid for/ if you get the money for the pets you gave away. This way is just much safer at all, especially because here are also little kids on this site.
And RL money is a bit different from off-site trades to be honest. You won't get in trouble because you didn't get the pixels you wanted but it could be a big problem of you paid money for nothing.

The thing about CWP/GP/-insert some other website currency-, is if the transaction goes bad, you can report the person on either game. But on many games, especially private or application ones, they are all or mostly all mature people who will go through with the transactions.



You can report people but that doesn't change anything, plus people PAY with real cash for OFFSITE things, so it is basically the same as selling them for cash, you just dont have the 'middle man' of offsite currency. All or mostly mature enough to go through with transactions?? I've played a lot of sites and this is not true. You have a 50 50 chance of being scammed unless of course you are going through a seller who has references to back them up.

What is your BFF hands you I don't know... $2 and you send her the pet and you are right there. Is that still okay or not?

Yeah, those pets are just little pictures on the internet no more than the size of your thumb. And yet, I saw someone selling a banana for 70$!!!! IT'S CRAZY!!!
