    Don't want to cause an argument, but other mods have said that "TPU doesn't care about members from any other forums." and "When using BST, it is your duty to research the other person, us mod's can't hold your hand"?? Or is it depending on the mod?

    I can't find the thread where someone accused TheMailMan78 of posting kiddi pr0n on another site, but there's a nice example.

    But, that message is heard Mussels, I'll remember to use report rather than PM.

    We don't care about members of other forums unless they become members here.
    We are not the interwebz police.

    It IS the duty of people using the BST forums to do the research as the BST forums are simply a service to the members.

    If there is a problem on TPU, we will try to assist as we are able, but the responsibility ultimately falls upon the people involved in the transaction.

    it is your duty this is real life. don't do research go to a crap mechanic get crap work the same can be said in the BST. there are many forms of a BBB you can go look on heatware or ebay.

    Exactly, I agree with you all; I believe very heavily in researching before buying and will verbally slap anyone who doesn't and comes unstuck... I was just highlighting (what I thought was) a minor discrepancy.
    I suppose it depends, really, on how the user is slinging the accusation (like when a "police officer" accused a BST member here of ripping off him and others on another site, and Mussels (I think it was) gave him some choice words.)

    EDIT: Man, I've just noticed this is the "READ BEFORE POSTING!!" thread and not the "What's wrong with our forums?" one... soz for the OT-ness.

    thats exactly it. you research it, if you find out somethings wrong, then report it and let us know. we'll decide if action is neccesary to be taken.

    I think the rules need to be updated
    "Your Heatware username must match your TPU username."
    Should be added into the OP.

    Thing is, that isn't true. You just need to have an alias that matches your user name and list that TPU is a place that you conduct trading.

    Aah, the post in antuk's thread is slightly misleading then:
    "Your member name and your heatware names don't match" implies that your member name and heatware names must match. Confused me for a sec.

    Actually, you're right. I don't mind the "nitpicking", it was my error, I wrote it incorrectly. :toast:

    bumping a sticky? Um...I don't think it's going to fall to the second page, or any further down tbh.

    Pretty sure it was to bold the thread link so it's more obvious.

    Hi everyone...I have a question:

    what are the policies of TPU about Steam Key sales?

    I have this problem. Under the holidays I wanted to get myself a nice racing game; somethin recent, so I kinda decided to go with Dirt 3. I bought it from a product key vendor for Steam and I "introduced" the game to my best pal later that evening. He seemes to have liked the game pretty much, especially the online races...so I tought hey I could just purchase another key for him like a Xmas present...Problem is this douche ordered a solid copy from ebay that same night :slap: :rolleyes:.

    Now I have a game Key for Steam to sell...can I sell it on TPU forums?

    I'm kind of confused about something. so if I bump my topic, and someone later comments after my bump....do I wait 24hrs from my bump or theirs?

    As the seller, you can bump your thread once a day (every 24 hours).
    Questions about the sale are not a "bump".

    Correct, however if someone states "PM" sent, you don't need to come back with "PM replied."

    Most people that PM you will already know that. It is more or less kind of like bumping your thread.

    oh ok. Just wanted to make sure. This is the first forum I'm on where they have a 24hr rule. The others I'm on use 6hrs, so in that case it is pretty easy to go over 6 hours. But I wanted to be extra careful since this is my first time selling on here
