I am not sure if this should go in the discussion forum/thread, or that it should be asked here.. As it is still an obvious question of: Why is this still allowed in such a form it's an annoyance to most of the community?

Most of you know what I'm going to say, just by looking at the topic title..

This topic is about everyone who thinks they should move to Torn City and start searching for a rich spouse instead of playing the game.. Am I the only one annoyed by this?

Of course, you can't do anything against people like Luciee [1809063], who actually steals pictures from someone on facebook and then thinks it's smart to photoshop this beautiful girls picture holding a white sign with her alleged user ID.. (Isn't identity theft a crime?)

But what can be done about this? Well at first, I would like to see advertisements like: "Hey I'm a new player and looking for a spouse with a PI and who wants to donate some DP's to me" get REMOVED from the trade chat. Just don't allow this shit anymore in the trade chat.. It's not a trade, it's not even slutting. It's a form of scamming/cheating or a form of gameplay as not intented (I hope) by Chedburn.

Why am I so bothered with it? Because I can't do anything about it....

"This person is a newly signed up player, so cannot be attacked.
Pick on someone your own size!"

"This is a newly signed up player, so cannot be bountied."

What would I want to see changed? Simple.. Just don't allow this shit in trade chat anymore.. Just let them use the designated topic looking for spouses, and follow up on denieing them to advertise for poor fools in the trade chat.

These people take advantage of the easy people, the easy people who found torn and realised they can have friends and somewhat of a family here.. They could easily get abused by footbal wives/dudes like this, and because I do realise you can't completely ban this from the game, I do also realise that it should be put somewhere where it won't bother the community.

Cheers, and happy gaming.

I agree with you 100%, unfortunately I believe begging and being a shemale whore are allowed in the game, and allowed in trade chat, even though technically nothing is actually being traded.

I also agree with you about the annoyingness of the 14 day protection, as these players realize they can spam and beg and do all kinds of crap for 2 weeks without any repercussion to them and the ones like you have mentioned know and take full advantage of that.

I would venture to say a lot of people feel the same way as us, the certain person already brought up to illustrate your point already has 50 enemies in 12 days - that's pretty good going!

If people are pathetic enough to fall for this sort of crap, they deserve everything they get.

What to do is find a low level and ask them: "Do you want to make money?"

Give them cash to bounty that player for you, then give them cash for doing it after they do it. Problemo Solvedo.

To my reading of the OP, they aren't saying that this should be stopped because people are being scammed or ripped off, but that these kind of begging or shemale ads should not be in trade chat and such because they are not actually trading anything.

Apologies if I have misunderstood.

Sure they are, they're trading fake companionship. or n00dz.

Either way, it's stupid people leeching off stupid people. Who loses here?

Thanks for responding Link. I agree this can't be banned from the game, but I can't agree with you on that it could not be banned from trade chat. It isn't a trade, it's an annoyance and therefor should just be banned from the chat and give them their very own special kind of topic.

And _I_. The people falling for this, you call them pathetic, are perhaps people who are looking for some thing else then you are, in torn city. You probably play this game for other reasons then that, and because you are well adjusted in your real life, that you can't possibly think of other intentions of playing the game. But I can tell you that there are loads of people here missing out on something in real life, and try to fill these empty spaces with role playing games like this. (Making friends, creating an enviroment where they feel safe and happy)

As long as people come to torn for the community, I think torn should protect it's community from leeches like this.

There is no community. If they come for one, they're an even bigger idiot than I previously thought.

As soon as scamming was made legal, all sense of community ceased to exist in Torn, as far as I'm concerned. I've never been scammed, but as I know that it's completely without consequences, it's removed all possibility of ever getting to know anyone on here, or have any interaction beyond the most basic level.

Oh no my point was simply that staff have said that begging in trade chat is allowed. eg. check the profile images on this scammer's images: http://www.torn.com/profiles.php?XID=1538618

If they really are trading Torn items/cash for nudes, then this is against Torn's rule of not trading ingame things for outside game things, no?


EDIT: I just wanted to say also that I agree 100% with your comments about scamming as well

Good luck proving/confirming it, etc. I doubt staff/admin would even bother trying, it's not worth their time, and chances are it was done offsite, hence the old 'pay me $ for my msn' line.

Thanks for pointing that profile out!

Also, I fully agree with the scamming part as said by _I_.. I thought scamming had always been allowed on here..

Oh, and that profile's Dave81/skulls/etc, one of the biggest scammers in the game. If you haven't blacklisted him already, do it now!

No _I_ you're absolutely right. I'm just saying either it's straight up begging or they *are* trading Torn items for non-Torn items. I'm not suggesting staff should go track down who's getting what exactly and I do agree with you the boys who fall for this kind of crap and end up losing their money to a shemale deserve it. I just wish there was a 'beggars' chat or something these morons could be confined to
