ArrowReminder to all traders! We have rules


Quoting an upset forum member:
Quote :
It is usually the same few members who feel that they have the right to go outside the itrader forum and publicly malign someone's character.
here is Admin's quote:
Quote :
Flame wars, arguments about a trade, etc. are not tolerated in the forums. iTrader is your only tool for publicly communicating satisfaction or dissapointment with a trade to the forum membership.

Please read... or if you did at one point in time, read again... the sticky note on top of this forum page!

Forum guidelines

also a good one to read again: Trading Rules

it seems there is a misunderstanding here. The private trades forum is NOT the iTrader!!

the iTrader link can be found on the profile pages. within the iTrader there is a text field available to leave detailed information about the trade.

Any 'blasting, flaming or accusing' posts will be deleted by the moderator team.


a short note in the private trades forum referring to that bad trade 'not happy with this trade' would have been enough, since it links to the iTrader's negative rating.

It has been stated and restated;
"iTrader is your only tool for publicly communicating satisfaction or disappointment with a trade to the forum membership."

The URL thread in the Private Trades forum is not intended as a platform for anyone to vent their spleen.
That is NOT the place to state the case if a swap fails to meet expectations.

Additionally, personal insults and name calling are unacceptable on ANY part of our forum.
We must all be judicious when choosing our words and bear in mind that the consequences may extend beyond simple deletion of the post. Anyone who accrues enough infraction points will find their access to the forum terminated (temporarily or permanently).

No one wants to feel cheated or forgotten after they ship off their end of a trade,
and I speak from personal experience when I say that it sure can take the fun out of trading plants and seeds.

That is why our administrators have provided the iTrader rating system for us at PlantSwap,
and it's why we should always leave a fair and honest rating for each swap in which we participate.
That information (good or not) can be of great help to the next person who may be considering arranging a trade.

With that said -
Here at PlantSwap we do ask that our members make their comments regarding swaps in iTrader, rather than posting them in the forum.
Furthermore, we ask that members who have had bad experiences at other forums or sites refrain from posting about them here.
No imported drama, please -
if a swap DIDN'T happen here, then this is NOT the place to discuss it -
and if it DID happen here, then the place for comments about it is in iTrader.

ExclamationAnd In Addition -


Please do not use the PlantSwap site to harass or browbeat any other member because you don't approve of their decisions regarding what they do with their property.

And make no mistake about it, any seed or plant which you choose to give to (or exchange with) another PlantSwap member does, in fact, become SOLELY their property - meaning that they are absolutely free to do whatever they wish with those plants or seeds - and they do NOT require your approval to do so.

It is not the place of the former owner of any plants or seeds to say whether the new owner may then trade them with other people, or hand them out on a street corner, or even toss them into their compost heap - they are within their rights, whatever they choose to do.

If you feel so attached to your plants and seeds that you can't give up control over what becomes of them, even after passing them along to someone else -

then the answer is quite simple - keep them safely at home with you.
