    Hey guys I just wanted to start a discussion about invite trading. I want to make it very clear that I am by no means a trader. I believe that invites/trackers were meant to be free but i think it is wrong how people troll around putting down people who choose to trade.

    Granted I myself am guilty of posting in topics discouraging trades, but upon further thought i think that we should let people do what they want regardless of our beliefs. I mean it is up to us whether or not we send an invite to a trader or not. I for one will not encourage trading by giving invites out to traders, but if someone else wants to I think they should be free to do so.

    I also believe that if people are breaking the rules they should be subject to any ramifications that are put in place for breaking them. For example Ftn does not allow or welcome traders, so if someone gets caught trading it FTN has every right to ban them.... I have no problem with this.

    Alls I am saying is that i think we should all lay off the judgemental attitude we have towaards traders. Even though we may not agree with it, people do have the right to do what hey want with there invites.

    In closing I'd like to offer advice to traders.... You guys dont have to trade to get what you want, just be helpful, give, and post around here and eventually u will get the tracker you want. But if you must trade you wont have to listen to me bitch at u ne more

    Let me know what u guys think....

    My 2 cents here, even though some of my staff disagree with me.

    Invite trading i dont realy care about. lets say we opened another tracker, (we are games atm, so lets say a music tracker) we gave invites out. The trader want`s a movie tracker, but the person on the movie tracker want`s a Music tracker, so they trade and we hopefully get a good member, and he might even become a better member than the trader.

    but i suppose thats because we are a specialist tracker. I can understand these top lvl sites not wanting invite trading, as the trader might go to another top lvl site and like that better and never come back (im sure its not the only reason they don`t like it but its one of them i bet).

    and if you trade and your invitee is a cheater (could happen in a giveaway on a public forum and to a personal friend as well) then just take the invites away from them.

    What i dont agree with is Account trading, but as that isnt the subject of this post, i will let that one go.

    And by the same token, people should be allowed to speak their mind if they are against trading, unless staff here say otherwise.
    Imagine a torrent site as a human body.
    Staff provide the brain, members the soul, uploaders the muscle, all working together within the body itself.
    And yes, the body has to find a way to survive, and if the soul is strong enough to provide for itself, it will survive and prosper.
    On the other hand, if you have to start pimping your body then you're in a bad way, your soul is weak and you're liable to catch something...

    I disagree with the statement above. The way I see it, when you're admitted entrance to a site, you're expected to follow the site's rules; you don't have to be a member of a site you don't want to be member of, and the site doesn't have to accept you as a member. If you choose to join and are allowed to, you're basically getting a service free of charge based on good will, and the fact that you're getting invites is again an act of good will and confidence from the site towards you, an act which is is not obligatory on the site's part. Since that is the case, it is within the rights of the site to set any restrictions on the privilege that you got, including (but not limited to) demanding that you do not trade the invite.

    Which is what posters should remember, this is a forum, you start a topic, others will discuss, whether you like it or not, amazingly, that is what forums do, differing opinions should be welcomed.

    If you do not like the noise, then close the thread from further discussion. If you are breaking the trackers rules by trading, then do not expect your thread to be free from discussion.

    What should be gripped and banned are the shitty good luck type posts, they should always be reported for post boosting & spamming threads.
    Yes Sir, I'm Right On It!!

    I don't go trolling talking about the evils of trading, but whenever I see threads talking about getting banned/scammed etc. from trading I will post telling them that the answer to their problems is to stop trading.

    I don't care if people trade invites. Personally I don't trade, for obvious reasons, but if people want to swap invites they will both get disabled if the torrent site is against it. Even if they don't get caught the first time ... the seconds time, the third time, then they get hit with a chain ban that goes back to open sign ups. What irritates me the most is when I see people with "anti-trader" in their signatures.
