So, first of all, I’ve been always trying to make this post be noticed by newer forum users, to avoid posting in said category.
My reason to make that post was already explained there: it simply isn’t a smart decision to make your first post at marketplace because there are better places to make your forum start on and it floods the category in case it’s a bad trade.
Still, most people ignore it, which is expectable, since I’m not bumping the thread over and over again that much times.
However, I came up with a new idea after observing even more posts of this kind.
Restrict access to Marketplace for new users. Simple.
Now, ‘‘why?’’ you might ask
Reasons are the same I stated in my post on #off-topic so I’ll quote myself again:
Examples? I’ve just seen this.
Someone who seems to have no idea about trading (new user) made a worthless trade. Mistake. Mistake to look for that trade, mistake to make their first post at Marketplace.
For context: someone wanted an exiled set. In return? 5k Crowns. Yeah, 5000 Crowns, which are currently worthless due to code farming.
I’m sure there’s people here that share this opinion.
Isn’t this too much?
Considering it, no, not at all. Marketplace isn’t a category to start off in the forums, and avoiding it is suggested until you’re experienced.
Of how much time are we talking about?
My suggestion would probably be either 30 days after join date or when you reach trust level 1 (Basic) or both.
Isn’t it enough with the post you’ve previously made?
Appears to not be enough. Post wasn’t pinned nor at the top via bumping. And this seems like an overall solution, though a bit more extreme.
I’m open to your comments on this. Share your opinion on this thread, reply if this is good, bad, what I could change and stuff… but let’s keep the discussion civilized, and please try to be constructive.
To summarize, access to Marketplace should be restricted since it’s not a channel made for starting out on (and other reasons as well).
