[NOTE] If you are an experienced user in the Forums, there’s no need for you to read this.
So, first of all, welcome to the forums! Hopefully you’ll enjoy your stay (as I say with anyone new here)
You might be wondering why I did this. Reason is as simple as new members making posts of things they seem to have no idea about.
The point of this post was to warn new users about the following.
Please, do NOT make your first post at Marketplace.
‘‘Why?’’ you might ask.
Answer (click this to expand)
Answer is simple: trading isn’t something you should look after if new to the forums (unless you have trading experience in game and you recently made a forum account, which being the case, you’re free to do that, but there are better things to do).
Also, we already have a channel made for introducing yourself, so why not make your first post there? Or as in my case, share something you’ve done in-game which is interesting (my first post was about a location I found while exploring in-game). The channel’s name is #game-discussion:introductions so maybe you should post there or in any channel that isn’t Marketplace.
Examples of this could be this post in which the user asks for a heavily valuable item while giving in return items that aren’t equally worth it, thus being a bad trade (not worth it).
Example 2: This post was the first of an user in the forums, and their trade was, well, kinda fair considering item value and offer. Still, you shouldn’t immediately get into trading as soon as you enter the forums.
Also, posts like these fill the Marketplace category, so avoid it.
The point of this post was to make you, new forumers, to avoid doing what I previously mentioned and starting out in a place that was after all made for that.
Of course, if you have trading experience and know how to do it well, it’s a different case, but you should try to begin by introducing yourself in the previously mentioned channel.
That’s all, folks! Thank you for taking your time to read all of this.
