    Moreover, in case of an extreme ignoring of the signature rules, an

    7. Sales / Offers

      It is not allowed to offer games or other goods within the signature for exchange or sale. (Please use the marketplace-forums for these)

  4. Markteplace rules

    Alle Angebote werden nach dem Erstellen von den Moderatoren zur Freischaltung überprüft.
    Bitte habt ein wenig Geduld, bis wir die Zeit gefunden haben die Angebote durchzulesen und entsprechend zu bearbeiten (wenn nötig). Sobald ein Moderator online ist, wird er sich darum kümmern.
    1. Not allowed offers

      • Offers with USK/FSK18- titles (games, DVD, BluRay)
      • Offers exhibiting paraphrased USK18-titles (e.g. Snake 4, Ca** of Du** etc. )
      • Offers where an USK / FSK 18 title is edited into after the issue (this immediately leads to a warning or blocking)
      • Offers without the German USK label

        Offers without the German USK label are marked as USK 18 by German Law and may not be offered.

      • Offers with with the information PM-game or the information: "Further games on demand"
      • Offers consisting of ref-links for snowball systemes or further dubious offers
      • Offers including a linkung to other sites (e.g. Ebay etc.)
      • Offers comprising games, which are offered via the signature
      • A wrong rating on purpose for transactions
      • Offers where a cracked or modded Console is offered
      • Pushing (to rate transactions that have not taken place yet...)
      • Account sale We have deciced that account sale is not longer allowed in this forum. This is valid for sale of all kinds.
        • PSN Acccounts
        • WoW and other game accounts (which is forbidden by the developer anyway)

        This is due to several reasons, as we can not estimate in how far this is legally serious on the part of Sony. On the other hand, the fraud potential for selling PSN-accounts is very high because with the seller's e-mail-address the password could be quickly changed anytime, as far as this e-mail-address was not sold, too. In order to stem the fraud potential, hereby no offers with account offers or demands are allowed in this forum and thus, they are also not issued.

        I ask for your sympathy.

      • Trading with promotional versions (before the official release.)

        Promotional versions to games, that have not been officially released yet, are not allowed to be either offered nor asked for, as a transfer for this versions is not allowed. However, we have decided to rate them after the release as collector's items. Then these versions are also allowed to be traded regularly.

      • Selling / Exchanging BETA-codes

        Offers comprising BETA-codes for selling or exchanging will not be issued. This is due to the reason that these codes are distributed in a limited number, but they are for free anyway. The attempt to try to make money out of that is not tolerated here anymore.

        You are free to raffle these codes in the forum, but please use the appropriate thread in the "Games" or "News" area of the games titles for that.

  5. Sanctions

    In singular cases we reserve the right to decide further ways to progress, if these marketplace rules are violated.
    We have affixed the guidelines to firstly inform the users why their offers could not be issued. However, if the offers should be repeated nevertheless and the reason of the seller can not be conceived, we have to pronounce an official warning. The next step would be a final unlimited blocking of the forum-account.
  6. Guidelines for preparing a post

    I have decided to write some more guidelines, in order to allow the reading of posts to be more comfortable.
    1. Short quotes

      Please mind, if you quote texts longer than 10 lines, then shorten the quote to the respective paragraphs.
      If you have deleted something from the text, you can write e.g. [...].
      Thus, you do not have to scroll long posts by the pageful, in order to find a comment such as "That's also my view"
    2. Please use informative Titles

      If you prepare a topic, you should tell in the title in a short way what it is about.
      Instead of writing "Heeeeelp", "Help for trophy - I am a trophy- in - name of the game-" would be better.
      Thus, users can see immediateley, whether they can help and you normally receive a quicker reply.
    3. Please don't quote a reportet Post

      If you report a Thread or Post to us, which consists of e.g. spam or lacks sense, do us the favor and do not prepare another quote of this thread, as we would have to edit later on your post, if it contains something meaningful, in order to delete the reported Thread there.
    4. You instead of You

      Please be aware that this Rule is primary ment for German Users only, because we are differing a lot more between you-informal and you-formal
  7. Signature Guidelines

    1. Register

      Please mind, if you prepare a hard- & software register within your signature, then prepare the list from the left to the right hand side instead of one below the other, in order to not exceed the maximal length of the line, consisting of 10 lines.
    2. Colors

      Colored features are allowed as long as they are not used for exchange or sale.
    3. Type size

      Do exclusively use the regular or a smaller type size (8-12 pt)
  8. Marketplace Guidelines

    1. No spam-posts

      Please do not spam other users offers with comments such as:
      "I have seen that here and there cheaper"
      If there are ambiguities concerning the price negotiation, please resolve these via PM.

    2. Just post if you are interested

      Please do only reply to offers if you are interested in the good and leave other users alone to do their trades.
    3. Supporting the community

      If you detect a flimsy offer, if an user offers hidden USK18 titles or generally misbehaves, then I ask you to please report this via PM to one of the moderators or use the report-button.
      We appreciate every support!

  10. Further terms

    1. Be fair!

      Please do never forget that a human being is sitting at the other end. A non-verbal communication is rather difficult and ambiguities seem to be almost bound to occur. Make you point of view clear and express yourself comprehensibly. By applying a conclusive line of argumentation, many ambiguities can be prevented right from the start. Mind the legal regulations. Be careful when quoting copyrighted works. To publish an e-mail is - besides possible legal consequences - not polite and should not be done without the author's explicit agreement. Posts bearing an undertone drifting to the negative side, consisting of abusive or illegal contents, are deleted or blocked if detected. This is especially valid for requests concerning illegal actions, e.g. transfering stolen copies, violating copyrights, breaking into data banks etc.
    2. Do not impose your opinion

      It does not make sense to argue about opinions. Discussing yes, arguing no. Everyone has his/her view on things. Posts like "You are nuts, it is like this and that" or "My truth is the real, absolutely truth" etc. are not wished for and do only lead to arguments. However, if you write "Well, I see it like this" or " I consider this like so and so", this is totally okay
    3. Singular cases not covered by these rules

      In singular cases, which are not covered by the present rules here, the person running this forum decides on the basis of the present facts.
  11. Rule changes and additions
