Default "Trade talk IS allowed in this section!" =D

I think we should have a section that allows for "trade talk". The Clubhouse section states "Trade talk is NOT allowed in this section!", but there is no existing section that DOES allow trade talk.

I once tried to post a thread talking about a TERRIBLE trade I'd made by accident, and encouraged others to share/vent their similar experiences.

I think there would be a wide selection of WI members who would appreciate the chance to share both their good and bad experiences trading.

I see plenty of people with signatures/avatars proudly displaying their best or most recently acquired rare item, and wonder what the history is behind that. I can't remember their name, but one user in particular comes to mind. She had a picture of a Mauna Loa Lamp that said "And then there was one!". I'd love to hear the story behind that! I'm sure there is one, and I'm sure others would like to hear it too. =)

I'm not saying this section should be for making trade deals (as the GE is sufficient for that), but a place where people can TALK about trading without their threads being deleted. Could this ever be a possiblity?

maybe but I think they meant not to talk about trades people made in the GE. (but I don't think i read your post correctly)
Rep for the idea!

Per the rules of WI, any kind of trade talk is not permitted outside of the GE. You might want to consider applying to be gifted. Here's the link:

It sounds like harlequinn is not trying to arrange trades. Can the story of the Mauna Loa Lamp be shared through a PM?

From the way I understand the rules, it doesn't matter if you're trying to arrange a trade or talk about a trade in any way, it is not allowed outside of the GE. In other words, when harlequinn said, "The Clubhouse section states "Trade talk is NOT allowed in this section!", but there is no existing section that DOES allow trade talk.", the first part is correct; the second part is incorrect. Trade talk is allowed in the GE.

I agree, although it would have to be heavily moderated. I would love to hear clubhouse stories as I never go in there, due to censors being annoying.

Yes, but only arrang trades viz kinzpost. Harle wants to talk about compeleted trades in the trading room.

I understand what harlequinn wants to do. But again, it is not allowed on WI. If they choose to change this rule, that would work for harlequinn.

Oh sorry, I didn't get it, I thought yo thought he....now I'm dizzy.

I still think it would be a cool idea, but prehaps you would be banned from there (not WI) if you tried to arrange a trade.

I don't really agree... cause someone could say "I traded a super bed for a red lava with webkinzlover123456!" and I don't think that would be so good cause what if webkinzlover123456 was a member here on WI and they didn't know that value of the red lava and then they found out by looking it up in the WIGEV...? How would you feel if someone made a trade with you like that and then started bragging about it?

No, that would count as trade talk and could result in the loss of PM privileges


I don't agree win this either. This could lead to trading through PM, which is something we're trying to avoid.
