    Default Just a suggestion.

    I have realized that a majority of members trade their virtual items for SC codes, however, it isn't safe for either of the traders because both of them have the opportunity to take the other player's item or virtual goods and run.

    I have an idea that may eliminate all chances of them being scammed, the way it works is the 2 members who are trading codes will have a trusted administrator arrive at a location where all 3 of them can meet, the code will be PM'd to the trusted administrator and the administrator will receive the said items.

    So, in other words, both of the players give their items to the trusted administrator.

    At this point, the admin has both the code and the items.

    After the code and items have been given to the administrator, the admin can send the code to the person who was buying it.

    If the buyer agrees that code works, then the administrator will give the items/coins to the seller of the code.

    This is a technique called middlemanning.

    If you don't quite understand, let me explain it to you like this:
    Spoiler: show

    Player 1 gives his code to the admin.
    Player 2 gives his items to the admin.

    Admin has both the code and items.
    Admin sends the code to the buyer.

    Buyer says the code works.
    Admin gives the items to the seller of the code.

    Trade is completed.

    I hope this eliminates any problems and you really think about it, it could stop a lot of scammers, and I really doubt a trusted FRI administrator would steal your items and codes.

    Thank you for reading.

    I like your idea but I have to say that I think it would be too much work for Administrators that can't always be here

    Moderators would be suffice.

    Any trusted member of FRI.

    Wow, excellent idea, this would prevent scamming by a ton.


    Code: Breaker is awesome.
    The stupid gif isn't working.
    I know it's small.

    I wouldn't have the patience for that.
    And this is coming from a trusted SC trader, don't get me wrong.
    But I would probably stop selling SC then, because I would get bored if it took a while and get off.

    Don't think of it as something you have to do.

    Think of it as an alternative if you're trading with someone you don't trust.

    I know, but I don't trust anyone unless I have actually traded with them before.

    If you're a trusted SC trader then they shouldn't mind going first.

    If 2 traders with no reputation want to trade and neither of them trust each other they need some sort of alternative.

    That is where this comes in.
