there ya go guys...all the threads that have violated the rules in misc form...FROM THE FIRST PAGE...

i think you all are going a little overboard here. and those rules should be changed...i have a thread in the suggestion box and everyone agrees..

THIS IS NOT TO REPORT YOU GUYS WITH THESE THREADS, ITS TO PROVE HOW STUPID THE RULE IS AND HOW IT WON'T BE FOLLOWED

Thanks but it looks like all of those were already closed or edited.

People used to follow the rules in there without an issue. I'd imagine they will again soon. If you look in the thread in the forum, several people have already said thanks for cleaning it up.

Think of this as the learning period. It will take people a little bit of time to remember what should be listed in that forum (clothes, packs, accessories).

Dunno if alot of thought was put into this decision.

I believe we have many more in favor of nixing that rule

Sorry, but it looks like we are going to continue enforcing it.

The only section that allows items that normally go in other forums is the ASM B/S/T.

People who were looking for things like masks or hoppers were having problems because people weren't listing masks or hoppers in the correct section. They had to wade through "gearbag" sales to find them.

People who had true Misc items were upset because their legit item was lost in the clutter of items that should have been in another forum.

People who received infractions for double listing items thought it was ok because they saw other people doing it. (ie hopper in Loaders and with their other junk in Misc)

People were asking for a clothes forum even though that's what 50% of Misc should be.

People buying Gold Ups for New items or Electronic Guns weren't happy that people were getting away with buying cheaper Gold Ups in the wrong section.

The point is that we have a section already for all of the items we are asking people to move. Why would you want to intentionally bury it somewhere it is harder to find? I know it is a little easier, but it is more convenient for everyone else to find what they are looking for if you put it in the right place.

Ok, now the thing is, for me, when I go into the misc forum i dont know what to expect to find...i will never go into hoppers to look for a hopper but if i see on in the misc. i would pry actually look at it.

All im saying is if u have an actual gearbag full of stuff why not have it all there and have 3x the chance to sell your stuff. More people buy when they see the random stuff in misc.

Now if they have just a mask, gun, and tank in the thread, then yes it should be closed. But if its included with dozens of other items I really dont know what its hurting.

So help us out. What do you think the rules should be?

What about true misc gear like clothing? Do those people not get their own forum?
Do we make a new forum for gearbag sales?
What's the minimum amount of gear to make up a gearbag sale?

I think if you make rules about what types of gearbag sales you want to allow, you are going to confuse more people than you help and make the forum even harder to moderate.

Even some of the people who were upset are coming around:

How about a paintball clothing subforum? Also a few people have suggested the gearbag forum which would be nice and also pretty much be the misc. forum. And if there would be a gearbag subforum, then allow stuff to be listed in 2 different forums, like the actual place they are supposed to be and the whole gearbag forum. Right now i haven't had much time to figure it all out so some of that pry sounded like nonsense.

How about another forum just for gearbag sales. Then another subforum for clothing. That will leave stuff like gun parts, pods, and more misc. parts to actually be the only thing allowed in the misc. forum. This would also help people that are just trying to find clothing...find clothing, and people that liked the randomness of gearbag sales to continue their shopping through gearbag sales. And the true misc. would be left in the misc. forum and have a strict rule and watch at what is all being sold in that forum.

anything you may have in a large group...but if you would do that i would still say it may be difficult to keep the rule of only posting that item in one place

Anything you may have in your gearbag. From a few masks, barrels, tanks, packs, pants, ...anything that you want to sell but dont want to list in multiple places

Think of it from the perspective of writing a possible rule that people could understand and follow.

Would a mask be allowed? How about the same mask if it was taken apart into 5 pieces?

Stuff may be listed in only 1 forum as it is now and if you had a mask in the mask forum, you cannot sell parts of that mask in another forum like the gearbag one.

Gearbag forum allows everything you may have you want to sell, but if you want to post your stuff in it, then you may not post those items any where else..

Also it would clean the misc. forum from clothing if a clothing thread was made.

If you would seriously consider it, I would be very willing to help out and watch those places and help people figure out what is going on and what is allowed.

So someone could sell just one item (like a mask) in the hypothetical Gearbag forum?

Oh, sry forgot about that. It would have to be a group of items(such as dozens) or atleast 10 or something to be able to be called a gearbag sale. If they have just a single mask, a tank, and a gun in that thread then i believe it should be closed and everything be posted in the correct places but if they have extras in like clothing, packs and all of that. then its fine

So if someone starts with 12 items then sells 3, it gets closed? That sounds more confusing for users and more work for mods, not less.
