PostSubject: ** TRADING RULES ** MUST READ **   Tue Jan 12, 2010 10:40 pm

Since its inception, abysstrading.com has had a few rules that we follow. These rules are being re-posted for your convenience. Please read and understand that Malevolenttrading.com staff will enforce them.

Abysstrading.com acceptable use policy.

Abysstrading.com is a family-friendly web site and, as such, we expect a certain level of civility from our members, moderators, and administrators.

If you are younger than 13, please do not post here. For more information on C.O.P.P.A. regulations, please check out this link: Federal C.O.P.P.A. Regulations

Abysstrading.com works on the three-strike rule. On the first two offenses, you are issued a warning; on the third offense, you are banned from the site. If an offense is deemed great enough by Administration, you may be banned after one or two offenses.

If you received a temporary account suspension and create an additional account while suspended, all of your accounts will be permanently banned. This includes sharing accounts with other members who are already banned.

This rule has always been in effect and covers a wide range of activities that include the offenses below, as well as other actions and behaviors that the Abysstrading.com staff believes are harmful to the site or its members.


Offensive language is not tolerated.

This includes, but is not limited to: cursing, racism, sexism, insults, drug related talk, threats of violence, and cyber stalking. Using words that are [censored] does not get around this rule. Misspelling or otherwise attempting to circumvent our filters violates this rule.

Plagiarism & Copy infringement

Plagiarism is the practice of claiming, or implying, original authorship or incorporating material from someone else written or creative work, in whole or in part, into ones own without adequate acknowledgment. Unlike cases of forgery, in which the authenticity of the writing, document, or some other kind of object, itself is in question, plagiarism is concerned with the issue of false attribution.

Copyright infringement (or copyright violation) is the unauthorized use of material which is covered by copyright law, in a manner that violates one of the original copyright owner's exclusive rights, such as the right to reproduce or perform the copyrighted work, or to make derivative works that build upon it. For electronic and audio-visual media, unauthorized reproduction and distribution is occasionally referred to as piracy or theft .


Do not spam!

This includes any advertisements or posting in multiple forums with the same message.

You should not have more than 5 active business threads open on the first page at one time.

Post bumping: Bump spamming is not allowed. There must be at least 6 hours between your post/last bump before you bump again.

Cross-Posting is not allowed here. Cross-posting refers to posting new duplicate threads or posts, or the linking to threads or posts already started by the member with the intention of gaining exposure.

If you think you need additional exposure for your business check out how to obtain the Professional Seller Status that is available at the MarkeeDragon Store.

Improper placement of messages

For instance FS/FT messages do not belong in the Lounge. Scammer message do not belong in the trade forums.

Multiple accounts are not allowed. We reserve the right to close any dual account(s) without warning . If you should regret making a display-name and you would like it changed please see the Display Name Change option here.

Account renting is strictly forbidden at Malevolenttrading.com .Anyone advertising account rental services will have their account suspended and posts removed. Anyone found soliciting for account rentals will have their post removed and will receive an account warning .


Leveling services

All Leveling Providers that advertise their services on Malevolenttrading.com must be verified.

Be very clear about which practices , hand-leveling, gliding, botting etc are acceptable to you and which are not. Be sure to read invoices prior to agreeing to them . Ensure that a date range is set in which you want your order started and finished and all parties agree.Be clear about what is going to happen if something goes wrong.

For example ,what will happen if your Power-level order cannot be started and /or finished in the time that was agreed upon ? What will happen if your account gets banned make sure you know what exactly you can expect concerning a refund .Be sure you have everything in writing showing where you and your leveler agree to terms.



They don't tell you they are. Most of them can act very nice until they got what they wanted.

We do not ban scammers because they do come back under a different IP/proxy and a new user-name and many people will be scammed again before he/she establishes enough bad ratings that people refuse to engage into any type of business with them.

However there are times where we do feel that it is the best interest of our website to suspend a user account permanently.

If you have been scammed please leave the appropriate TW Rating on the user.

Make a post in the Scammer Forum . In the subject line include their MT-Name and AIM. Include proof in your report such as screenshots /chat-logs / pay-pal / WU transaction receipts etc.

IP's/Information will only be released to Law- Enforcement.

Read :Law Enforcement / Information Requests

Banned users will display with a pink name and the words banned or scammer attached to their user-name.


Rating & Feedback System

Ratings are for transactions only. You may not compensate anyone for any review or recommendation. Companies that are Trust-Who verified cannot give their employees ratings , and the employees cannot give the company ratings unless an actual transaction has occurred. Companies can only have ratings given to one account and not multiple accounts after a transaction by a customer. Disregarding these rules may lead to account suspension and/or having your Trust-Who verification status revoked. You may NOT post feedback on behave of any user. Doing so puts your own TW status at risk and may cause a permanent account suspension . Grief ratings are not permitted .

We do recommend that you do a search of the User-name and AIM for your own protection. Ratings are intended as additional information for you, but are not intended to be the sole information that you should base your decision on .

Take a look at the left side under the persons. You'll see Positive Neutral and Negative ratings.

Each one of those numbers is backed up by a comment explaining why the rating was left. If the person has several negative ratings that shows you that a lot of people were not satisfied with the transaction that took place and why. People that have several positive ratings have done good transactions and have satisfied customers .Sometimes we see a person with several positive ratings and 1 negative.

That does not necessarily mean that person is a scammer but it shows you that something went very wrong during that particular transaction and the situation was not resolved in a timely manner. ( 10 days or less)

If that transaction would have been resolved that negative should be changed to a neutral rating stating : “Yes there were difficulties with …. but those issues have now been resolved.

Sadly it is impossible to make everyone happy all the time and that is to be expected .

Our Staff has NO CONTROL over what people say in your rating and they will NOT remove a rating because you don't like it !

Positive Ratings should look like this
Transaction went well
Trade/Sale went great. Honest legit
Traded (insert w/e they traded here) A + trader
Good trade /Sale
Bought /sold[insert] off him great seller /buyer
Speedy delivery
Good Customer
Great Transaction

Negative Ratings should look like this ( You do need to back those up by proof via a report in the scammer forum or the rants and raves forum.)

Scammer , stole my
Provided false account information.
Recalled account ( state reason)
Hacked my account
Attempted to sent me virus/key logger
Did not follow by agreed terms

Owes me a refund/compensation for..

Neutral Ratings should look like this:

Dual /sharing account notification will be added here (added by Staff only)
