    You open a thread in the MM forum, so does the the person you're trading with. If you're trading accounts - you post all the details to the account (user, password, email details if included in the trade).. etc..

    You do need access to the BT Invites section before you can enter the MM area..

    but what does the middleman exactly do when it comes to trading invites? could you give me a little more details?
    why is it supossed to be safe?
    i do have to sent the invite to the trade partner's email anyway, don't i?

    more details would be nice

    The middlemen are basically trusted people who are supposed to handle both parties info properly. Ensuring you get a proper trade.


    AKA

    Bob gives the middleman his sites login info.
    You give the middleman your sites login info.

    The middleman will then give you each others once he has confirmed both sites info work.
    This is bacically to ensure your not scamming each other.

    However I wont give my opinion on it

    thanks. what i don't understand is, when i send an invite to my trade partner and he won't send me back the promised invite and disappears, what can the middleman do about it?

    ...nothing. making a trade through a middleman reduces the possibility of a scam, but it's not 100% safe.

    My advice is to stay away from trades, that way you don't have to worry about that.

    ^ that works too. but i think he wants to know if there's anything that can be done to recover his invite in that situation.

    Thanks for that

    Middleman is a safer way to trade. However, it is still NOT 100% safe. It has its flaws.

    Yes, you still can get scammed by utilizing it. However, thats extremely few and far in between. No, we are not liable if you do get scammed as its still your responsibility to research who you're trading with as it says on the MM fineprint.
