    From the sticky:

    Middleman Crew Basics

    The Middleman Crew are BT Mods and long term trusted members.
    When making valued trades you may request a middleman for it.
    This reduces risks of scams happening in a trade on this site.


    The trade needs to fit the following requirements...
    • The trade involves a tracker of Level 4 and above in the WTAW thread.
    • That a member involved has been registered at FST less than 90 days.
    • This shouldnt be needed if making trades with long term members.
    • Middleman Crew members will be available only for invite trades.
    • Requirements may be altered depending on the situation.

    Middleman Crew Duties
    • Middleman Crew members collect all details from both members.
    • When theyve received all information they may forward it.


    • They may choose who to send the information first.
    • This is a safeguard should anything appear to be fishy.
    • This also applies when new members are involved.
    • After confirmation they would send the rest.

    Requesting Middleman
    • You MUST make a REQUEST in the Middleman Request section.
    • The member that creates the thread and Staff can read it.
    • Then a Middleman Crew member will reply to your request.
    • Include what invites your trading and with who.
    • Link to the profile of who your trading with.
    • Other details like MSN if necessary.

    This is NOT full proof against being scammed in a trade.
    This is intended to a be a more secure way to trade.
    You should still RESEARCH who your trading with...

    However, it can be several more things:

    Merriam Webster:
    Pronunciation: \ˈmi-dəl-ˌman\ Function:noun Date:1677 : an intermediary or agent between two parties; especially : a dealer, agent, or company intermediate between the producer of goods and the retailer or consumer
