So People Are Aware....

Regarding Selling of Items - TOS and Player Ethics Rules.
So people are aware and realize: selling equipment, gear, items, and AP for real life cash is considered third party buying and selling. Which is against the TOS and Player Ethics Rules.

#23 of the Player Ethic's Rules:

 
All in game items, and accounts are the property of Aeria Games. No sale/exchange of said items is allowed accept as authorized by Aeria Games.  


Terms of Service: 8. Third Party Sites


 
Clicking a hyperlink may direct you away from the Website. AGE does not endorse or control any third-party linked sites, is not responsible for their content and has no association with the owners or operators of such sites. Also, other sites may have different terms of service and different privacy policies. AGE therefore strongly recommends that you inform yourself regarding the practices of third party websites.

Your correspondence or business dealings with, or participation in promotions of, advertisers found on or through the Website, including payment and delivery of related goods or services, and any other terms, conditions, warranties or representations associated with such dealings, are solely between you and such advertiser. You agree that AGE shall not be responsible or liable for any loss or damage of any sort incurred as the result of any such dealings or as the result of the presence of such advertisers on the Website.  


So please keep in mind, doing this will cause one's account to not exist anymore. I just wanted to remind everyone of this.

zactly

And this is why, Kiddies, when someone says they want to buy AP from you, tell them WHERE it is available in their neighborhoods.
Examples; Kmart
Walmart
Walgreens
Speedway Gas Stations
Roughly ANY PLACE that carries Fastcard brand cash cards....

The cards come in 10, 20, 25 etc dollar amounts, and the AP is also available from OUR own online home, Aeriagames.com https://billing.aeriagames.com/
Paypal and other Nice ways of covering your purchase apply here.

Finally there are ways to earn AP. Play Poker on AEria Games Poker Heroes on FaceBook...Just click here, lol http://apps.facebook.com/poker-heroes/?r=526342665
Or there are online Earn ap ads where you fill out Trial offers, subscriptions, and such things @ http://www.aeriagames.com/offers

Keep following the Rules kids, Keep the Game a happy, Ban less place. I hate it when people I have played with forever suddenly are gone the way of the winds

selling stuff into AP is in fact not an issue because the AP's are from AGE too ...

and the ToS ... i've red it but there are a LOT people that didn't read it.



btw, this shouldn't be stickied in GD but in the barter boards Razz

selling for cash

I think the difference is selling for CASH vs. selling for gold or in-game barter.

If you will look in the barter boards there is already a notice there as well.

I believe this was stickied here as well because the majority of the player base does come to General Discussion first.

Contacting players outside of game/forums

Many players wish to discuss transactions over instant messanger, this is perfectly reasonable, HOWEVER, some people do this not for convience but in order to ask for payment not permitted by AGE's ToS.


23. All in game items, and accounts are the property of Aeria Games. No sale/exchange of said items is allowed accept as authorized by Aeria Games.  


Buying in game items with real money/items is not permited, and can result in account suspension. If someone asks you for such payment please report them.

If a player asks you to contact them via phone. I strongly advise against this. Some players are using extra-fee number's thus charging you for the call.

Not to bust your bubble or anything, but Aeria games doesnt take the responsibility for THEIR owns game defaults, that caused alot of peaple to lose gear and real life cash. They ignore, delete and hide the facts.

Alot of people are missing items they bought FROM AERIA GAMES NOT 3RD PARTY SITES, and the GM's are to lazy to look into it, and just copy and paste the same message to each player. I showed ticket where they had some of my gear documented because it was a big debate on it.. and yet they still dont respond to any of my tickets, when I bought/farm all my gear FROM AERIA fair and square. I understand Aeria not being responsible for 3rd party sites and whatever.. BUT what about the items people spend day and night, real cash for on the monthly Tiers and Promos Aeria SHOULD be responsible for that.. but guess what they arent and thats in the TOS.. Matter of fact its the one right before this one you quoted. So i think we should make everyone aware of that one also.

This thread was meant to warn players of possible scams involving players trying to get real money for in game items not for the discussion that is going on in another thread.
That would be this thread with the server issues and lost items:
http://forums.aeriagames.com/viewtopic.php?t=804559

But yes smirf you are correct in that according to the ToS we all agreed to when we downloaded this game Aeria can not be held responsible for server issues and lost items and such. And to that effect they do not have to do anything to try and compensate the players yet they do try to come up with something to try to make it up to them.

We all agreed to take a risk when it comes to an online game dealing with computers/servers and such. And we should all be aware of the possible issues than can arise from playing a game that is on computers/servers.

Now I'm sorry for those who lost items/gold and such in the recent server issues but hey I have lost stuff before as well and at the time of those items being lost I would have gladly accepted even a small token such as is being offered now.

Please no further derailing of a topic meant to keep players from getting false information or worse scammed because someone tries to get the to buy an in game item for real money.

lol? I just gave another TOS rule, that alot of people need to be aware of also. I understand this is topic to help people from getting scammed. I said that if you read fully, before giving your 2 cents.. My point was people still lose items they buy from Aeria, and not only 3rd parties.. But im done here.. no one like the facts.. by the way I like your sig comment what ever that means.
