your future experience in playing children's video games depends on it

Does this really have to be a rule...?

So thank you for that/this. (if this sounds like a suck-up moment it is not)

Even so, this discussion is very member-driven because I have excluded my votes. I am very engrossed in my note-taking though, even making beautifully agonizing errors, yup yup.

Well I suppose this would work, but there are many here that just joined and are very good at what they do, just pointing it out.

Payment wise, I agree with what you said, it should be decided by the cloner, but within certain limits, nothing like "Give me 3 flawless per clone" be reasonable. Most would go for keeping a copy or something.
For qualifications, I'm leaning towards modest post count and join date, as well as having experience and respect within the trade board. The "Claim a ___" threads have similar qualifications. I am vague for good reasons (so ya'll don't work on the requirements >:D).

For rewards, I am leaning towards a copy of the Pokemon (or at the client's discretion, another Pokemon from their shop). This is... standard for cloning services on other forums. Anyone charging higher than the standard rate will probably have no cloning requests. I am really hoping there will be some altruistic members. Otherwise, the person who wants their Muddy the Gentle Swampert to be cloned will be overlooked... !

It was changed to 5 in order to add some leeway to starting players. It is also controversial. :O

Free time! Don't we all need it. You basically said it yourself: these changes will be gradual or whenever I have a free weekend/robot
I can proofread or better, I can kick someone and make them proofread it for us.

Not open for member discussion
Spoiler:
  • Banning Dex Filler Shops
    A trader can create a thread if he or she needs to complete multiple trades, update inventory, and participate in the trading community for an extended period of time. Casual players exist, too. I'm not going to rule them out.
  • Global whitelist / reputable / trustworthy traders
    I already turned down any kind of member directory, index, etc. I don't want to update something like that (sorry to say, but even if TC obtained more staff, it's going to come down to me updating lists). I'll leave it up to traders to maintain personal lists. Anyone downright atrocious is just removed from the forums.
  • Self-edit trade thread titles
    Titles can be abused when staff aren't on so as a prude, I am opposed to this; however, I am open to allowing self-edit of the Gen4/5 Prefix.


Something for me to ask higher staff to consider
Spoiler:
- Giveaway prefix
- Self editing prefix

    How many people have voted already?


    Can we edit our votes? I wanted to add to mine with "Need to be stricter on IV shops."
    A lot of people aren't following the IV shop rule. :/

      I hear revamp is coming soon?

      I'm wondering how much is going to change.

      The anticipation is killing me.
