      [VERY IMPORTANT] Marketplace Rules [Version 6.0]

      السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

      With each passing day, PG's community grows rapidly and the members are offered a special deal with their membership that is the marketplace section.

      With the community growing, the marketplace section also is rapidly growing from well-known sellers to hidden fraudulent.

      So we, the Moderation Team of PG do our best to keep everything under control and ensure that you have the smoothest of experience when availing the marketplace services.

      Adding an important note : Do not call the Team Staff members " ADMINISTRATION/TEAM PG " for any ban related and arguing for any instances. Keep all discussions on the forums or emails/pm's. Any one violating the rule, will can serve up to " LIFE TIME BAN ", so do not start using cell phone issues to communicate pg problems on TEAM Staff personal numbers.

      Disrespecting any Team PG staff/Administration for any reason will result you with a BAN/Username suspension/account deletion. We do not encourage,slang words/disrespectul behaviour with TEAM staff/Administration. Please use polite and sensible words when you are speaking to any authority on Pakgamers. We believe in the moral ethics building programme.

      Lastly, Making a thread in "Suggestions and Feedback" without informing/bringing it into knowledge/approval the "Administration" is also considered as a violation. We here do our maximum effort to give you all the support out of our personal commitments. Do not misuse this rule to take advantages. If any unforeseen issue is arising, you can always approach the Market Place Moderator's or Administration " PM's only " and wait for their reply.

      Now we have officially started forwarding " Scams" complaints to Cyber Crime Units. Claimant is responsible for any activity conducted by our "LAW GOVERNING AGENCIES", we only try to minimize the scam control on PG and Pakistan. Any complaint or help raised, we share our expertise to guide you what to do and from there the case is handed over to the concerned personal. PG or any staff member is not a part of this program.

      Here are some rules (revised and new) that you need to follow.
      Failure to do so will result in a ban (temporary or permanent).
      So please use this thread for guidance and to update yourself with the rules implemented.


      Red Colour = Rules(Numbered)/Main Headings/Warnings/Ban Severity Information
      Orange Colour = Sub-headings


      Introductory: A Bump is allowed AFTER 4 days. 4 days means 96 hours. Please take care of this. 4 different dates do NOT mean 96 hours. Undue bumps will be dealt with severity.

      1. What To Post And What Not To Post Related To Buying/Selling/Trading

      - Electronics (Cellphones/LCDs/PC related stuff etc)
      - Gaming Related (Consoles/Games/Accessories)
      - Other stuff like Watches/Movies/Earphones etc

      - Memberships of different sites.*
      - Selling balance of different sites like Paypal/Alertpay/Amazon/Moneybookers/Liberty Reserve, etc
      - Paypal balance selling is not allowed here because of the following reasons:
      Some people use hacked / illegal accounts for selling paypal balance, later buyer get charged back (aka dispute claim) hence the buyer face the consequence and in the end he gets nothing = create a dispute here on PG for getting his money back. Buyer whine when his account gets block due to geographical restrictions by paypal and is not allowed in Pakistan so anyone in Pakistan selling paypal balance = illegal = issues = headache for PG staff
      - No accounts of any games sharing like origin, steam / psn which have a pre-loaded key involved and a warranty period is strictly not permitted. If you sell the account, make sure you are selling him your personal details linked to that account. If anyone purchases it without investigating about the " Digital " account, PG is not responsible for any claims
      - PSN/XBL codes require permission before selling, as they related to " Legit " purposes and we do stringent checks on them. Any sort of " $, pound , euro " credit is also subjected to approval and scrutiny. We have strict policy on such threads and can be deleted without any justification.
      - Quantity Selling is subjected to approval

      For Digital Codes
      We have stricten some legit policy for everyone. If you are comfortable sharing these details
      - CNIC copy ( Crossed ) both Sides
      - Current address where you are staying with contact numbers.
      - If you are working/or student. Just a information of what you do.

      This is taken for the safety for the legitimacy of everyone. We are protecting scam free enviroment for everyone. These details are not going to be shared with anyone and rest assured.

      For digital codes ( steam/origin )
      Make sure when you sale or purchase the account from someone. Please take all the details that link to make you the owner of that account.

      Example :

      2. Tagging Your Threads Properly:

      The prefix tags [WTB]/[WTS]/[WTT] are there for your ease of use, so that when posting your offer, your audience should know that what service are you offering (buying, selling or trading) for your product.

      Incase of Failure/Not following this rule:

      Failure to follow proper procedure will result in 3 warnings.
      If the warnings are not heeded, the thread will be deleted immediately.

      . Traders MUST be able to deliver the merchandise as promised; in terms of the delivery period, merchandise’s contents, merchandise’s condition and etc.

      Refrain from jeopardizing sales unnecessarily. However, you are encouraged to raise an alarm if you strongly believe a potential fraud is about to take place. Alternatively, report the post.

      Don't try to spam by posting fake offers and advertising, your account will be deleted without any warning if we found that you are spamming and scamming in marketplace section.

      6. Don't post off-topic replies or stupid comments in someone else's thread/topic.

      7. Don't try to derepute someone by posting in grudge, let the Administration/Team PG staff handle your complaint. Most of the cases are judged on merit and we do not issue ban for one sided stories, please bring in your full evidence when to place a charge against someome.

      8. Lobbies will be always on the Internet forums, please do not form into one. Be neutral on what you decide. If you are taking help from someone, and that person is unable to deliver your issue with a positive node, raise only if you are sure about the problem.

      If you are not interested in the offer, then leave it and move to the next one. If we find any off-topic replies which are not related to original topic, we will delete them, and if you keep on doing this in the Market Place section, then your account will get a permanent ban.

      If you have an offer or are interested, contact the buyer/seller via PMs/VMs, do not post in the thread asking them to contact you.
      Posts like "reserved for me", "what is your FnF" etc are not allowed and will be deleted without any prior notification.

      They indirectly bump up the thread which is not allowed.

      7. For [WTS]:

      Don't post the same item/product offer again, you may bump your old offer strictly after 4 days of posting and can edit it. If you feel like you need to post some info about your product, do so with your next bump, alternatively you can edit your first post (highly advised) with your latest bump containing the info you needed to convey.

      8. Try to follow this universal PG format for selling:

      Package includes:
      Dealing method:
      Contact method/details:
      Item(s) conditions:

      All the fields mentioned above are MANDATORY.

      9. When your item gets SOLD, contact your nearest marketplace mod so they can close the thread, otherwise in case of no activity within 12 days you get warning and then resulting in immediate closing of thread.

      10. Including PICTURE(S) of the item you are selling/trading is MUST ! So that the buyer can see the condition for himself beforehand and to be safe from any fraud and confusion.

      10 a. Adding an escrow if you are new in the situation or ask for help if you are stuck. Deals on Pakgamers are user's responsibilty and at user's risk.

      In short terms, NO PICTURE(S) = NO THREAD(S) !

      Experienced members who have experience before in the marketplace section are to upload the original pictures within 20mins of their posting of the thread.

      New members are to upload the picture(s) of the item(s) in 2hrs.

      Failure to follow this rule will result in 3 warnings and then a ban of 2weeks/14days will be handed out.

      Advice: Make it a habit of yours to take picture(s) beforehand before making and posting a thread.
      This habit will save you from many things and hasslement.

      Pictures are must in order to maintain the thread and to sell items. You will have to take atleast one picture containing the product you are selling/trading and your PG user name written on a piece of paper beside the item(THIS IS COMPULSORY IF YOU HAVE A TRADER RATING OF LESS THAN 10), so that we can be sure its not ripped off from internet and other users(read= potential buyers) are sure that the product is available, failure to do so may result in a permanent ban. Third Party links will be deleted without intimation. NEW: You are also REQUIRED to write the words "PakGamers" under the username. Failure to do so will result in action being taken.

      Working Screenshots for CPU/GPU/Motherboard etc with date and time are also MANDATORY.

      Tip: It is better to upload picture(s) to a image hosting site like:
      ExtraImage.net - ExtraImage.net - Free Image Hosting / Image Upload
      Img Safe | Free Image Host
      cubeupload - zero compression image sharing
      Image hosting, free photo sharing & video sharing at Photobucket

      ImageShack® - Online Photo and Video Hosting
      Welcome to Flickr - Photo Sharing
      TinyPic - Free Image Hosting, Photo Sharing & Video Hosting

      WARNING ! Failure to upload the pictures when creating a thread and you will be asked to provide the original pictures within 2hrs. (Experienced members get 20mins)

      After that thread will be locked down immediately for the next 4 days (the legal time for your bump) even if you provide the pictures after 2hrs or 1 day or so.

      Don't place other links of your threads during bump period, it will result to delete your thread.

      No argument or excuses will be tolerated.
      If you have time to make a thread, then you have time to upload the pictures with it.

      Failure to have pictures and to provide them within the next 4 days will result in the thread being locked for the time of the next bump i.e. 4 more days.

      This is a fair warning and you all now have been warned as No pictures = No thread.

      Lastly, PakGamers.com will be not responsible if someone ripped you off or you bought something broken/fake, so be careful before buying anything it's all your responsibility, however we do try our best to keep an eye on fake/scam offers and usually delete any such offer we think it's fake as soon as it's been posted.

      11. Special services like rental threads, modding threads etc and bulk selling and SELLING AS A BUSINESS is STRICTLY PROHIBITED!

      If you want to sell in bulk and/or want to offer a service then we have a premium marketplace membership available.
      Lately we've seen that many members have great privileges and they start selling on PG as a business, this is not allowed.
      Please contact Jshak regarding that matter or email jshak@pakgamers.com

      12. Arguing on the price of an item without proper proof given regarding current market price:

      If anyone is found arguing regarding the price of an item then he/she will receive an infraction/ban (as the seller is not forcing anyone to buy his/her product). If posts are found saying " Price too high...", "Decrease your price" in the forum you will be asked to explain yourself, failure to do so may result in an infraction/ban.

      Also talking/discussing in the thread is STRICTLY PROHIBITED !
      If you have any inquires/offers/negotiating or anything else, PM/VM/Call/SMS the seller/buyer/trader.

      Failure to follow this rule will result in a 2 weeks/14 days ban.

      If you have any problem with a thread/post, there's a Report Post button in the bottom left of every post, it is there for your ease and use it to alert the moderators of any suspicious activity or if seeing anyone not following the rules.


      Posts like "Read the rules, upload pictures, post demand etc" will be deleted without any notification. 3 or more infractions will result in a ban of 1 week/7 days.

      14. PRE-ORDERING or any other threads that involve getting the product in future are not allowed anymore.

      If you have the said products in your possession, only then you are allowed to post a thread with necessary picture(s) included for proof.

      Example : Hey my brother/aunt/parents/etc are coming from abroad and if someone wants any stuff. Please inform so I can bring it for you. Deposit amount and you will get the item.

      We make sure and ensure about the safety and reputation matters on pg. As a family , we make sure that we do alot of stringent checks even for Premium sellers that are new to pg and obtain " Pre Ordering stuff - From abroad ). Premium Sellers are are permitted till a limit after background checking for their reputation. We do not want anyone facing scams in this scenario. Permissions are subjected.

      If you want to sell anything on pg, make sure you have the stuff. We value our members than regretting.

      PSN Game Sharing has been allowed but only old trusted members with a trader score of 20+ can post gamesharing threads without contacting a mod first, to avoid scams as it involves future buying...

      Also only those members having either a trader score of 20 (100%) or 1000 posts are eligible to make gamesharing threads...

      For new members having trader score less than 20+ or posts less than 1000+, you are to PM a marketplace mod (or Jshak)with these details first in order to post a gamesharing thread:

      NIC Number
      Landline Number
      Complete Address

      (These details are to be PM'd to a mod, not to put up in the thread)

      And if you have purchased a game or games/stuff and want to share with other people, upload the pictures of the account along with your nickname written on a piece of paper beside the downloading list....

      Also only "ONE" Gameshare thread per "TWO" weeks is allowed...
      Gameshare thread will use up your quota of 2 threads per section...
      So if you put up a gameshare thread and another thread, your quota will be used, which will be restored after 3 days BUT you can put another gameshare thread only after TWO weeks, get it?

      Starting from today (15-10-11), a new rule of limiting creation of threads per user is being introduced.

      Each member is now limited to creating 8 threads per 3 days in the marketplace.

      2 threads for each section.

      Can be both for [WTS] or [WTB] or [WTT] or a combination of any two.

      So the breakdown is like this:

      Game Consoles & Accessories: 2 threads.

      Computers & Hardware: 2 threads.

      Mobile Phones & Accessories: 2 threads.

      Other Stuff: 2 threads.

      This will reduce the number of threads and thread spamming.

      Please plan ahead and group together and post similar items on sale or to buy in a single thread rather than creating an individual thread for the items of the same category.

      Thread creation WILL NOT be carried on towards the next 8 threads per 3 days.
      If you didn't avail the creation of 8 threads and 3 days have passed, all your thread creation will be reset.

      So you will then again have the limit of 8 threads that you can create over the period of 3 days.

      Now this is a pretty important new rule so it needs a bit of elaboration.

      Even if you get one of your threads closed, that won't mean that you just opened up a slot to post another thread.

      8 threads per 3 days are allotted to you, so use them over the period of 3 days.
      Once 3days pass by, you'll be allotted 8 threads again, 2 for each section.

      If you haven't used up your quota, not our problem, nothing will be carried on.

      16. When selling game keys for PC games, it is necessary that you mention the source of the key.

      1. Steam itself doesn't sell KEYS.
      2. These keys are acquired from promos or 3rd party sources.
      3. In some cases wrong keys are bought with fake CC.
      4. This results in an instant ban of account where this key is activated.

      So for example a person has a 20000 rs account. And if he activates this fake key. His whole account is blocked for counterfeit and fraud and that fake seller will get away with money. So IT IS EXTREMELY NECESSARY for anyone selling STEAM key, they should mention the source and the proof.

      17. Selling game cards (PSN cards, XBOX LIVE cards, WoW cards etc)...

      It is necessary for you to post the real picture of the card in your possession (scanned or taken by a camera).
      What you will do is use any image editing software of your choice (e.g. paint) and BLACKOUT the code part from the image(s)...

      This way your code will be secure.

      If you got the code in your email or on your PC like in notepad, screen-cap the email/notepad along with the code and again BLACKOUT the code part and then upload the pic after being 100% sure that the code is hidden and hasn't been missed...

      Market Place Trader Score

      You can start rating the other members by clicking on trader score tag but use it with care as this feature is included for your own convenience where trust factor is the main issue behind unpleasant deals. Please do write the comments that the member deserve so one can judge him/her as honest or fraud seller or buyer accordingly..

      Deal Back Offs:

      If the seller intends to withdraw his item/product, then he/she should do it before the final deal agreement, else if the deal executes. The seller will be compensating for the loss and will not be permitted to post any of his items for 14 days ( Situation Depending )

      If the buyer refuses an agreed deal. Either he should compensate the loss to the seller or accept a 14 Days Ban ( On Proper Justification Query )

      III.A seller has full right to ask for token money for reserving his item or if the buyer wants to have the product shipped first, the seller has full right to first ask for security deposit as it is the seller's item.IV.Trader Score System Tempering:

      Pakgamers is no longer responsible if any members issues a positive or negative trader score by any means. On worst case scenario, the trader score will be converted into " neutral ". The score will remain on the profile with the comments.

      Any frustrated language used against the " Team PG " will be subjected to a permanent ban without disclosing the reason.

      Alternatively, a seller can refuse to reserve the product and/or to ship the product first to the buyer even if token money/security deposit is being made, as it is the seller's item and he/she has full right to it.

      No buyer can force the seller to either reserve the item or ship it first if the seller disagrees, else the forcing party will serve a ban of 30days!

      If an Premium member helps you on something, and the deal does not goes " positive " . Do not go around the bush to bad mouth his reputation. Raise only an arguement if you see any flaw.

      If your deal goes bad for no reason and you are attacked with a negative trader score, possibility that it will never be removed. It will be turned into neutral, but the accusation will remain as it is. No one removing of trader score from the system will be implemented.

      Contacting the administration number ( CONTACT NUMBER/WHATSAPP/Direct calling )or team pg staff for any problem to the resolve it, will be subjected to 3 month ban without any reasoning. So keep all the matters of PG till email or PG. Do not attempt to call the Team Staff pg to listen to your issues.

      Do not attempt to contact any team staff on their personal numbers or facebook,etc. Keep all the communications on email. Anything beyond that will result to a Ban for min 3 months.

      Also, if a seller fails to collect token money/security deposit and ships the item first and then the buyer runs off or pays less than what was finalized, the buyer won't be held responsible for anything as it would be the seller's fault in this matter.

      The token money will be deducted from the finalized deal between the two parties to which they agreed upon.

      No Irrelevant Replies will be tolerated like :
      i) Hey Cool Offer man

      Why is your Thread closed?

      There a lot of threads closed recently. If you were the creator of the thread and wondering why your thread is closed then I have closed them for four major reasons (threads will be closed without intimation):

      No pictures:-
      Upload pictures. No excuses like no cam, busy, dog died, cat not drinking milk, girlfriend ran away etc etc. Post original pictures of the item that you intend to sell. (Creating another thread will result in an account ban. If you want to upload the pictures just PM any marketplace mod).

      Frequent Bumping:-
      It is clearly written in the market place rules that bumping is allowed after 4days. Sticky threads are not allowed to bump. So either follow the rules or get your threads closed. (Creating another thread will result in an account ban. Your thread will be reopened after 4 days of last bump if you PM the mods).

      Bump only after 4 days have been passed after the last post, that last post could be your last bump or anyone else who has posted in the thread.

      Threads with no location mentioned will be closed as to reduce the queries like "What's your location?"

      Mention your demand so that the buyer may offer you accordingly. Otherwise get ready for ridiculous offers.

      V. Services:-
      Like stated above that no threads which allow services like renting/modding etc are allowed.
      If you have a service to offer, buy a premium membership, simple.

      VI. Gamesharing/Pre-orders:-
      No longer allowed, so if you post a thread and it gets closed, then no need to create a scene, just come back here and see the rule.

      VII. Bulkselling:-
      Bulk selling is strictly prohibited and the thread will be closed without any notification.
      If you want to sell in bulk, then please get the premium membership for the marketplace section i.e @Jshak
      Quantity of 1 or 2 pieces of the same items are permitted, anything beyond is subjected to " Bulk Selling ".

      Please DO NOT impersonate a Staff Member and if we find out that you are guilty of the charge, we have the right to report you the legal authorities.

      Advice on how to stay safe from fraud

      Due to rapid growth of the marketplace, you are never safe from scams/frauds etc.

      To stay safe and to help your case against them, you can do the following:

      1. Whenever you are set out to deal, whether buying or selling, from the first PM/SMS/VM/Call till the last deal closing one, SAVE the PMs/SMSes/VMs and calls (if possible to save calls).

      This will ensure that if (khudanakhasta) a deal goes sour, you can then have proof of the deal that you made and can build a case against the guy. Also keep evidences for the deal record.

      2. Always check out the trader score, but don't rely 100% on the trader score, use your common sense too and try to ask around about the guy you're about to deal with.

      This will give you a general idea about how the guy is etc.

      3. Always triple check 'too good to be true' true deals, many of our esteemed members tend to provide you with the lowest of prices but others can also use this tactic to lure you into a scam/fraud.

      4. It is always better to contact the mods and the admin first before making a public scene. If the charges are proved wrong and on top of that you are found guilty then it will bring nothing but shame and humiliation and maybe a permanent ban.

      5. If you fail to understand someone clearly, involve someone reputated from the forum. Do ask for help if you want to proceed with the deal.

      Advice On How To Properly Add Titles When Selling Console Games:

      When selling/buying/trading console games, make it a habit of yours to follow this format:

      [Proper Tag - WTS/WTB/WTT] [Console Platform] <Title of the game> [Region (if applicable)]


      [WTS]: [PS3] Killzone 3 [Region 2]

      This will tell the buyer/seller/trader at first glance that what platform game is being sold and what region it is...

      It will help buyers considerably as well.

      This format is NOT MANDATORY but is advisable and if you have any issues, please " PM " the Moderators of the Section or report to " JSHAK " or " NanoW"
