jazzyleia • 13 Aug 2012, 2:34 PM

YAY NEW BLOG! And I hope this helps new users in the future

Orderedchaos • 13 Aug 2012, 2:37 PM

Oh my goodness yes. Everyone should read these.

ladybugheart • 13 Aug 2012, 2:41 PM

This will be very helpful. :]

Ian • 13 Aug 2012, 2:47 PM

it's pretty crazy how much tickets we've been getting about trade stuff...

Ian • 13 Aug 2012, 2:47 PM

everyone needs to read this page to keep themselves safe... it's mostly common sense, but some people seem to be falling for stuff.

mairbear • 13 Aug 2012, 2:57 PM

The warnings are nice but everyone still has the choice of trading with CC if they wish 😊 I've done numerous trades involving CC

mairbear • 13 Aug 2012, 2:58 PM

and so far, have had no problems 😊 I think it really depends on circumstances, who you're trading with, etc ^^ Good to be cautious thou~

Ian • 13 Aug 2012, 3:03 PM

@mairbear yeah. the warnings are very strong from the mods simply because when people lose, they normally get super upset and expect

Ian • 13 Aug 2012, 3:03 PM

us to reverse things, which we really can't once the trade has gone through.

_piano_pokemon_ • 13 Aug 2012, 3:13 PM

Hopefully this will help with all the scammers ☚ī¸

Ian • 13 Aug 2012, 3:24 PM

also, realize that we can't ban account solely on the premise that "i was scammed by this." you need to take the action steps to stay safe.

goku • 13 Aug 2012, 3:25 PM

New blog!!!

_piano_pokemon_ • 13 Aug 2012, 3:25 PM

thanks ian 😊

_piano_pokemon_ • 13 Aug 2012, 3:25 PM

though iv never been scammed its always good to be sure 😊

dreamer • 13 Aug 2012, 3:31 PM

I have never been scammed, nor have I ever scammed anyone. I think more should be done... But BOTH sides should have more common sense.

turkishdelight • 13 Aug 2012, 4:51 PM

Thanks Ian! This should be really helpful! 😊

awesomeness365 • 13 Aug 2012, 5:31 PM

Yay! Maybe there won't be as many scams now. 😊

silverserpent • 13 Aug 2012, 6:04 PM

Yeah, this is good, but since trades asking for CC are so usual nowadays we could really use a safe way to trade it in the trade center. 😊

balletninja • 13 Aug 2012, 6:30 PM

Oh my gosh. If they are having so much trouble with CC trading then just make it so that it is safe. It ticks me off.-

jewelz • 13 Aug 2012, 6:30 PM

Iv been so bored for thee last week /: I feel like theirs no one online ;-;

balletninja • 13 Aug 2012, 6:31 PM

They will let us "gift" but not trade? They can't seriously expect us not to try and trade it. It needs to just be implemented.

silverserpent • 13 Aug 2012, 6:39 PM

I agree with @balletninja on this one. We really need this feature otherwise scams will continue happening, I think.

jewelz • 13 Aug 2012, 6:40 PM

@balletninja I Get what you mean l;

converse • 13 Aug 2012, 7:13 PM

The Trade Safety Tips, have some very good points.

thursdays_dove • 13 Aug 2012, 7:20 PM

I can't believe how many people get ripped off on EC. :/

elementalpaws • 13 Aug 2012, 7:22 PM

There was alot of creatures in the Adoption Center ☚ī¸ Why would you abandon cute creatures!? 😃

goku • 13 Aug 2012, 7:29 PM

Lol. I had no EC and just wanted to see what it said when you abandoned a creature. ;_; It's so sad;_;

silver_winged • 13 Aug 2012, 7:32 PM

Good tips, Ian! This will especially help new users who don't quite know the ropes yet.

rosey77 • 13 Aug 2012, 7:51 PM

I made an egg cave wordle XD

dragonfriend • 13 Aug 2012, 8:37 PM

I noticed this when I clicked on it instead of on 15 Newest Trades by accident 😋

panda-chan • 13 Aug 2012, 8:39 PM

Hi!! Looking for another wiset for 75-100k in ec. 😊

whispers • 13 Aug 2012, 9:55 PM

yay 8D New blog c:

ginna3525 • 13 Aug 2012, 9:59 PM

good night egg cave

elementalpaws • 13 Aug 2012, 10:20 PM

After tomorrow I'll be going to Silverwwod Theme Park with Boulder Beach Waterpark! They are all one big Amusement park with awesome rides!

goku • 13 Aug 2012, 10:33 PM

@elementalpaws Sounds fun@.@

vampire666 • 13 Aug 2012, 10:48 PM

I was really happy about the creature ownership thing. I hate it when people tell me I can't change a name or something AFTER it's mine. :/

peppermintcowboy • 14 Aug 2012, 2:49 AM

@vampire666 - Same. The "omg never ever trade the pet i just traded you" crowd irritate me. Hypocrites. *They* just traded it. Pffft. :-/

darkskyazray • 14 Aug 2012, 4:30 AM

Nice rules. 😊

dionaea • 14 Aug 2012, 5:57 AM

@vampire666 Worst is if they tell you AFTER you've already traded... I think it was already up somewhere though, the ownership thing o.o

dionaea • 14 Aug 2012, 5:59 AM

Anybody have a Flickle UFT, I can offer good stuff, give me a poke if you do 😊 I've been looking for a while now...

karamel • 14 Aug 2012, 7:09 AM

Didn't think we'd need this, it's really common sense... but good job anyway 😊 I do think the "you won't get your creature back" --

karamel • 14 Aug 2012, 7:10 AM

probability is a little exaggerated. I have traded for CC a few times and travels many times, and have never been scammed. Just my opinion.

xstephaanie • 14 Aug 2012, 7:13 AM

Hmm. It's a shame it's come down to this, that people have been scammed so much.

novrain62 • 14 Aug 2012, 10:15 AM

You can be scammed right in your own locality where you live by anyone. Online, Offline - use Common Sense people 😊

melancholy • 14 Aug 2012, 11:23 AM

I totally agree with @balletninja . The only way to stop it is just have trades for cashshop items, travels and pure CC.

fuzzydragon • 14 Aug 2012, 11:46 AM

Thumbs up to you, Ian! 😉 Having some trading tips is a good idea to give users a fair warning -- especially site newbies

novrain62 • 14 Aug 2012, 11:48 AM

hahaha omg!!! there's a snake in my house !!!!!!!

novrain62 • 14 Aug 2012, 11:49 AM

novrain62 • 14 Aug 2012, 11:50 AM
