questions before i get in trouble
« on: 02 May 2011, 17:38:45 »
my questions are pretty simple.  i know that it is aginst the rules to post things for sale through the site.  is it ok to post pictures and ask about what people would be interested in buying.  nothing being exchanged but info.  my plans are to post on ebay, but i am not sure what kinds of things that players and those people who do buy are looking for.  so is this type of information exchange allowed?

That should be okay, as long as the conversation doesn't go to specific prices, and you don't link(or otherwise announce) ebay auctions here. I'd be prepared to pull the conversation entirely if mods more senior than I feel otherwise.

Honestly, to be safe it might be better to ask on the Lords of the Battlefield forum, where not only will they have a large populace of CBT players to ask, but sales and trades are allowed there.

I'd have to back Weirdo and say that while technically that wouldn't be against the rules, it's probably best to take the issue to Lords of the Battlefield. Trading is against the rules here due to people years ago ruining a good thing for everyone else, so while there are very good places to go to trade and sell Battletech, this just isn't one of them.

You can still post the pics here to show off your work. Just don't mention they are for sale. A lot of minis you see displayed are commission works or end up sold via another site.
