Trading Channel
 
I created a channel for the traders in zone chat.

Please join the global channel called BUY-N-SELL in your global channel list. Lets keep a centralized location for all your trading needs for those whole don't use the exchange. It's new, fresh and a lot shorter name... Why waste chat box space on a name? lol

RULES:
  • Do not troll the channel. No un-needed comments on someone's trade.
  • No general chit-chat. Use for trading only.
  • No "deceptive" or "shady" traders or trades allowed.

More rules to come if the channel gets abused.

If you wish to help operate the channel according to the rules, please mail me in-game @the_orig_jean_luc_picard

Please report all abuses to myself or operator (when it gets some) so it can be dealt with appropriately.

Has this channel been closed?. I heard one or two chatters last week and it's virtually silent ever since. I reset my chat settings to make sure there is nothing at my end to no avail. Does anyone else know about a similar or updated "trade" channel

They don't allow off-topic chat, and they do't allow comments on trades, so basically all you'll get in there is "X is for sale" and a price. There could be 1 person in there, or 100, it'll still be really quiet. Channels need chat to seem alive, without it... what's the point? All you'll get is a new subscriber that adds the channel, sees nothing being said for ages, then probably leaving again because it's a waste of time being on it anyway.

I'd second Lake's recommendation for TheTradingChannel though, the moderators seem reasonable and I've gotten a few decent trades through it.

It has not been closed. Its still open. Thanks for your support.

Mindless dribble in the channel does not keep a channel alive. It keeps it on topic and what it is designed for. Look at doffcalls and doffjobs for example. Two of the most successful channels in the game imo.
