    I do not see why people cover up there usernames when posting Ratios. With so many ratio pics floating around they could just copy one and say it is theres. I do not see the purpose.. It's like there trying to hide something to me....Last time I traded I turned down a bunch of people just cuz of hiding there names...

    Some sites will ban you for trading invites here, I am sure ppl have other reasons also.

    invite trading usually gets you banned from most sites. you could be showing the ratio proof to someone who will pass that information on to the site.

    Plus, I don't like getting incessant PM's on the tracker site with questions from the person I invited.

    Yeah its not a good idea to be flaunting your username around when most sites don't even like you trading there invites in the first place.I was wondering the same thing when i first started trading too but it clicked in after a bit .

    at most trackers, they want you to give the invites to someone you know. not just random people.

    personally, I don't give out or trade invites. I just let them accumulate. I value my account at most places too much to just hand out an invite to an anonymous person who may or may not cheat, be someone working for a media company, etc...

    when MT & ScT started, they desperately needed users, so some clever people came here to give away hundreds of invites to us ordinary users who look out for invites. Invite trading can only be stopped by disabling invites - then it becomes account trading.

    I am not able to understand how someone post a pic with the name crossed out can be considered ratio proof especially if it can be photoshoped to reflex something else.
    Best bet is to ask them what there user name on the site they are showing proof for and send a pm to that site they say they have ratio proof for and see if you get a correct response that is agreed upon before hand.

    Maybe something like "the eagle has landed

    And yes some sites ban for posting in invite threads but hey if you want to play the game be willing to take the pain.
