The pets are not 'boosted' due to the list, the list simply reflects what they are traded for C: You can check the list here: viewtopic.php?f=20&t=112366


Thanks, this was a huge help :)

Love it your guide, made me think about how people see my rules (they were endless paragraphs since that happens sometimes to me) and i think more people should respect it as i was going to trade someone (not going to say a name) but their trade rules made me just click away. I mean would you guys trade a person who part of their trade rules are over sized bits of writing and capitals used for a whole word LIKE THIS not just the start of a sentance. And using exclamation points just seems rude especially when you are like "NO rats!!!"

Hello there, I must say that I love the guide you've put together, however, I think you've overlooked a rather large part of trading that I think should be addressed.

The Trade Thread.

It is quite possible the biggest element of getting people to trade with and I have yet to find a guide on the topic. I feel that it would be very relevant to discuss in you're guide and that it would be a huge help to those looking to do a trade topic without a lot of experience.

My suggestions for key points:
•NOT USING ALL CAPS
•Not demanding that people trade with you
•Have a relevant title
•Don't demand people bump you're thread
•List pet you're looking for/have
•Using proper spelling and grammar


And of course, anything you feel should be added on here as well.

Thank you so much for making this. All I ever see in trades rules or trade group names are "OFFER AND BE FOED!" or the classic "-insert pet name here- IS NFT!STOP ASKING!"
These make trading harder than it really is.
So,once again,thanks! ^-^

Key to successful trading:

If your rules take more than 5 sec to read. I know that i wont read them and honestly with the option to cancel any trade you don't like or want to edit, I think having rules suck. CS has enough rules and Forum topics to cover all kinds of stuff. As the recipient of a trade you can check if its a fair trade in the forums or just cancel it if you don't want to do the work. You want more trades then ditch all the rules and just use common sense and the tools already provided.

I don't think that's correct. I've always had rules and get plenty of trades, around 10+ each day. The key is more into having no spam and clear rules then to having none. I can imagine that have no trade rules brings a lot of unfair and silly rules, because not everybody has 'common sense'. Something can be common sense for you, but could make 0 sense to me c:

Cs's forum rules have nothing to do with trading so those don't really have to do anything with everybody's trade rules.

Thank you for this! I always go to trade someone and they have some long essay explaining how if you touch their rare lion they'll foe you and hate you forever and for eternity, OR a long page of pictures that are supposedly hilarious and "describe them." Rarely do I get lucky and find a GREAT set of trade rules.

Just, I can't thank you enough for making this holy wow. :)

This was a really big help. I changed my trade rules, and now they are simpler, and clearer!
