Default PM's for PSF's---against the rules?

I often get PM's from people asking for PSF's. (They don't want the PSF for a trade, they just want me to send them one) Is this against the rules? I don't know how to respond to these requests..

it is against the rules to talk about trades in PMs. im not sure if you can just flat out PM someone and offer to send them some. id PM a mod or admin and ask them

actually i think it is against the rules to ask people to send you things in posts or PMs. i believe they are breaking a rule just by asking you.

Default Re: PM's for PSF's---against the rules?

This is taken directly from the forum rules:
NO TRADING OUTSIDE OF THE GIFT EXCHANGE - In order to protect our members from scams, we have a special area set up for exchanging items called "The Gift Exchange". No trading or exchanging of any kind is to occur outside of our Gift Exchange. This includes user-hosted contests, etc. There will be no begging for items or asking people for items in their pictures.

So I would say yes it is against the rules.

They aren't asking for a trade, just for me to send them PSF's. Should I forward the PM's to a mod?

I think that even asking for your PSF is against the rules. It may not be trading, but it still is requiring you to send them something. Sort of like a trade to me.
I would ask a mod, but I do believe this type of PM is not allowed.

You are a Gift Guru, so you are allowed to trade through PMs anyone who is not a gift guru is not allowed though. If the person sending the pm is gifted, just refer them to the ge to exchange with you and if not, let them know that you are not allowed to trade outside of the ge. I don't think you need to involve a mod right away - unless the person insists that you send them one for some reason.

Default Re: PM's for PSF's---against the rules?

I was just noticing that too Kajika. Gift gurus are allowed to trade/talk about trades in pm's. Maybe whoever is asking knows this and that it was okay because you are a GG? Although both parties need to be gift gurus to talk trades in pms.

But it could be a simple misunderstanding. Maybe just let them know you are not allowed to discuss this topic with them in pms and direct them to your ge if they are gifted? If they persist then I would forward it to a mod.
