    Exclamation Attn: Remember the TRADE RULES-- NO commerce in the General Discussion Area!!!

    Please do not conduct commerce of any kind in the General Discussion Area.

    No trades, sales, or trade/sale offers or requests.

    Commerce is only allowed in the Open Market area-- and only once you have met the requirements.

    https://www.onesixthwarriors.com/foru...ad.php?t=79729

    Asking for information about a dealer who might have the item you're looking for, however, is allowed.

    Please do not try to bend these rules or get around them. If you're new and want to conduct trade, you'll have to be patient until you meet the trade requirements.

    Thank you.

    A boost to the top since it's not getting proper attention.
    Let me just add that failure to comply will result in your thread being removed.
    Thanks for stopping by.....

    Not any longer it's not. I think I have been guilty of not obeying the rules - Cuz like schmuck I just ignored this post. My bad.

    Can I ask a question for clarification? Just recently a new guy posted his bash. It had some sweet custom blades... I believe in the post I asked if he took commissions. After that we took it to PM. Was this an infraction of the rules?
    got privilege?

    Preferably, the question of the commission could have been asked via PM as well, but I wouldn't call it an infraction since it was THEN taken to PM.

    We usually don't come up with certain rules-- especially if they're going up as a sticky-- unless there's been major, major problems with a specific issue and we've already discussed at length other ways to possible address it.

    But, I appreciate you asking the question. We're only here to try and keep this place as fun and civil as possible.

    Wanted to give this a bump, lots of new folks and I have noticed these rules being either disregarded, or people acting in ignorance of them. Give the mods a break, educate yourselves and have a good time.

    hi! , I don´t know how to put this , but I think I kinda broke the rule out of ignorance , I did post in the forum , telling me and my team are going to produce some 12 inch scale clothes , it was just an announcement , and , I´m planning on adding some pics from upcoming clothe pieces , but should I hold this ,untill I meet the proper requirements , or just show the work , without mentioning prices?...or should I just post in other treads without any mention of this?, I´m a little confused , and I really don´t want to have a bad start here , I want to earn my place in a proper way.

    I'll probably bollox this all up, but there's no harm in introducing yourself and your particular place in the hobby. You didn't mention pricing either, so up 'til now all's well.

    The requirements to post in Shop and Trade is meant to be a safety, to reduce as much as possible trade issues, the bain of hobbyists and staff. A complication in a hobby based on the premise of having fun.

    Welcome aboard.

    I am planing on selling some of my sculpts.. I guess I should post here, but, can I make a little introductory thread in the general area.. just displaying the pictures and asking them to visit the shop and trade area for further information?

    Thank you.
    Once the requirements are met you should be able to post in the Trade area automatically. If you run into any problems, please let a staff member know right away.
