The administration and moderation team has heard many of the community members' complaints about users using fake or real personal issues to grab trader's or giveaway host's sympathy.
In light of this, a new policy is now written under Discussion and Commentary Policies: Do not discuss any personal issues anywhere in the wiki.
PERSONAL issues should be kept discretely and related topics do not need to be publicly announced. We are a supportive community, however, these topics can be inappropriate for some users here. In other words, please mind the people around here in the community.
Do not use personal incidents or issues, whether it is fake or real, to attempt to manipulate user's expectations for a trade of giveaway.
This falls under User Conduct #8: [Do not] create and/or use accounts to evade blocks, manipulate an impression of an idea or post, or mislead editors.
Thank you to the users who did bring up this idea. The moderation and administration team definitely think this is inappropriate and will not be tolerated in this community.
As a community, we want to make the environment feel like home and make users feel as comfortable as possible. If there is a problem, please message an administrator.
