Hopefully this will help guide people on thread design & best practices for market threads

 

Best practices:

  • Link items to databases
  • Post minimum acceptable offer
  • Include the abbreviation for your item as well as its full name (for searchability)
  • Reserve The Right Not To Sell (RTRNTS)
  • Check older threads to ballpark prices
  • Provide proof on items > 1 Billion zeny
  • Create a post listing previous deals
  • Protect yourself by validating the deal ingame with a screenshot
  • Proceed with caution when dealing with WPE trades
  • Hide your previous bumps in your thread
  • Do not harass other people just because you didn't get your way

Only one thing about posting images of the item. When you post the URL of an image coming from iROWiki database and someone access your page, that image will consume the database bandwidth (this is called hotlinking). When a lot of people post images from a site and access them then the bandwidth consumption rises and that means more maintenance costs for the database owner. I think, copying the images, storing them on an image sharing site (like imageshack.us) or using other options rather than hotlinking directly from the database would be considered a better ethical option. I know the images are 300 bytes (not even kilobytes) average but I would still do it.

 

Besides that the guide is a-m-a-z-i-n-g. That part with the agreement being screenshotted is a great tip for guys new to 2b+ deals. You should point out too the fact that for deals over 2b+ you can ask for help from the GMs to do the transaction, mainly for high-tier MvP cards or godlike items.

 

I vote for it to be stickied.

At the very bottom on the left, there's a Change Theme link, where you can pick a dark theme. It's really nice on its own, but I also use a Chrome extension called Change Colors to change aaaany site I want.  Ragial looks nice in black!

xD  Well, let's see... I've used two 'high contrast' extensions for Chrome so far, and I prefer Change Colors to Google's official High Contrast one.  Here's the Change Colors one:

 

http://www.google.co....61725948,d.dmQ

 

After installing, it'll make a little icon on the right edge of the address bar, next to the bookmark star and zoom thingy.  Right-click and go to Options, then pick the colors you want to be default...  Normal clicking on the icon can disable it per-page, by domain, or disable.  The only bad part I've noticed is that on some sites, some images won't load (Google's version will greyscale or invert colors of ALL images) like the map on Ragial shop view pages, but most work.  Whew... I think that's all there is to it really~  I'm obsessed with dark/black theming... and I don't even have an OLED TV yet!

:D I figure out some of the player like to surfing forum, but they did not write or post in forum, so I think it's better to put your most active ATM player In Game Name on your market thread, so some phantom player can try to negotiate with you in game via rodex :D haha
