The "Is this a fair trade?" Thread

Postby Zeena » Fri May 01, 2020 4:30 am

"Is this a fair trade?"

It can be tough to know when you are getting a good deal. Luckily, this is a place where you can ask fellow players for their opinions on your trades. Or, for the experienced players out there, you can lend a hand to help others understand what they've been offered.

COPPA members are encouraged to send a help ticket for advice on trades.
Regular members should only ask here.

This thread is owned by, and will only be reposted by staff.


    Rules for posting:
    • Do not post "mark" or other empty posts
    • Be polite
    • Remember, everything is an opinion

    Rules for seeking advice:
    • Post only once per page
      • Multiple questions can go into a single post
      • You may repost your question onto a new page
    • Use the [share trade] feature
        Go to the trade page and click on the trade you want to view.
        Scroll down to the very bottom of the trade.
        Directly above the 'Accept', 'Edit', and 'Cancel' buttons is the share trade link.
        Image
        Copy that link and paste it into the message or post where you want to share the trade.
    • Do not offer rewards in exchange for advice
      • This encourages false advice
    • Do not do something to make your post more visible
      • No attention-seeking text sizes or colors
      • No decorative images or gifs

    Rules for giving advice:
    • Give educated advice
      • If you do not know the answer, do NOT reply
    • Explain your advice in as MUCH detail as possible
      • Do not post if you cannot fully support your reasoning
    • Do not advise on trades you are participating in
    • Do NOT contact a user directly criticizing their advice
      • Use the report button on the post so staff can remind users about giving quality advice

    Tips for using this thread:
    • Ask for multiple opinions!
      • It's ok to continue asking for advice after you've received an answer
      • It's ok to give a user advice even if they've already gotten a response
    • Report posts which are spamming the thread or giving bad advice
      • Even if you aren't sure, it never hurts to report; staff don't mind taking a look to make sure the thread is a good resource for everyone
    • Say "thank you" to those who help you!
    • Research before trading or giving advice
      • CS staff cannot reverse trades which you were happy with at the time

User-Made Resources:
Have a guide that you'd like to have added to the list? Please send a Help Ticket so staff can consider it.
Also, remember that not all of these guides may be current, finished, or updated.
However, you can use them as you choose as they can still be good reference material.

Mid: May - August
