SCREEN NAMES are COMPULSORY - itt - discussion and random GC forum posts

So we plan to introduce compulsory poker site screen name posting in all gift card trade threads soon. We're aiming for next weekend probably so I thought I'd put up this thread a week in advance to make everyone aware and so we can discuss any questions that are raised by it. Post any queries you have here, no question too dumb.

An example of a good trade sequence:

Quote:

After a successful trade.

I sent him the Amazon codes and he sent from his Party (Hisscreenname) to mine (myscrenname)

Confirmed.


If you do a 'confirmed' style post please make sure all screen names are visible in the quote. It is your responsibility, not ours or your trading partner.


Failure to post screen names will result in a 20 point infraction (we may be lenient at first for the more established users until everyone is used to it), the same as the $$ transfer thread in Internet Poker. If users consistently fail to post screen names we will ban them from using the Marketplace or ultimately 2+2.

I'll start off the questions:

I donít want to make my screen names public for whatever reason. Can I still post for trades?

No, sorry. We want to treat all users equally, so everyone who wishes to trade in the Gift Cards forum must post their names without exception.

IMO any marketplace trade dealing with any funds on any poker site should have screennames posted.

This should have been mandatory a long time ago.

I already have a thread here can I get my OP edited to include my poker name (magstar2) on Carbon or do I have to start a new thread? I'd prefer not to start a new thread.

Edited it into your OP. We're happy to add names into the Op's if anyone wants that or if you want to start fresh threads go ahead also.

I have edited the title to show the date of Saturday the 2nd of June as the first compulsory date for screen names. Feel free to start early. I also banned a seasoned scammer using Greenie7680 on Carbon and Lock (ScratchAce) so please be aware that they are still around and eager to steal from you.

It's already done in the p2p threads, so, no reason it should be ne different here. I think it's a good idea. It would have save me a lot of hassle and money had I just looked up ppl sn's on 2p2 a lot earlier. TY for the update and the heads up.

Is it the thread holder's duty to report successful trades or the other guy's? For example I have a thread and I could just make up trades and report them in the thread to build my rep.

Re: From Saturday 2nd of June: compulsory screen name posting. Talk about it in here.

We would expect both parties to confirm it. There was a thread before where lots of people posted 'confirmed trades' with an OP and the OP never got round to responding so there was no way of verifying if these small post number accounts had really traded with him until I pm'd him and made him confirm the trades.

If you're trading with someone who you've never encountered before just politely remind him to confirm the transfer in the thread once successful in your last PM/IM/MSN/Skype with him, as they may not be as familiar with the rules as you. We will chase them up if required as well. Those who consistently fail to confirm transfers may lose the right to make any.

Re: From tomorrow Saturday 2nd of June: compulsory screen name posting. Talk about it in here.

This is now in the sticky as a rule. This thread is linked from the sticky and will remain open for any questions and queries.

We will start off lenient for the first week or so. If you realise you have forgotten to post your names or a confirmation please use the post report button (the red triangle on the left under your 2+2 name) and post the missing info into that and we will edit it into your posts.

Please use the post report instead of just pm'ing a mod for this as it's likely to be quicker.

Those of you who have a long established trading thread and would like your screen names added to the first post also please either post report or pm one of us and we'll be be happy to change it for you.

Re: From Saturday 2nd of June: compulsory screen name posting. Talk about it in here.

I have been informed that "with the switch to the new "revolution" servers for lock poker you are unable to player transfer to a screenname, only the user's registered email address on lockpoker, which most might not want to post on a public forum..."

We still want your screen name posted, please do not post your email contact (don't post it anywhere on 2+2 if possible including your profile) as you will be opening up yourself to a flood of mails from scammers pretending to be legitimate posters. Also a reminder to make sure to check that the screen name they claim is theirs is correct by making them sit at a table and chat while displaying funds is a good idea. Otherwise someone can just say "IM PlayerX on Lock, this si my email send funds" and you transfer to someone who is not PlayerX.

This might seem obvious to the majority of traders but a lot of newer dumber posters get fooled this way.

Re: From Saturday 2nd of June: compulsory screen name posting. Talk about it in here.

Sorry, i have to change my screen names on poker sites alot and this was advised to me by poker sites so that when a player builds a history on you and your style of play they cant keep it because you changed your name. Making your screen names public for everyone is NOT a good idea if you want to win. But hey if you aim to loose, by all means post all of your names.

Re: From Saturday 2nd of June: compulsory screen name posting. Talk about it in here.

Have you paid Fizzypants back that $100 you've been stalling on paying since February btw? I know you hadn't 2 weeks ago. If you're trying to trade without giving him his money back you're going to be banned.

Also you listed several sites where you're not allowed to change your name so I'm not sure what exactly you're saying. Also, and here's the insane thing, when someone adapts to how you play in poker you adapt back to them. It's how people play poker. Someone who has played say 40,000 hands with Director at his tables for example is not suddenly going to get a big advantage when they notice he's also Director on 2+2 either, he'll have adapted from actually sitting at the tables with him. Again, this is how poker works.

And finally your screen names are already posted on this site, it's not like they are hidden, we already know them. If you're just embarrassed by your Sharkscope graph or something then get over it, there's plenty of equally terrible players here, it's not like anyone trading money with you is going to turn around and laugh at you.

What you say makes no sense at all.

Re: From Saturday 2nd of June: compulsory screen name posting. Talk about it in here.

This has been in place for a few weeks now and it's going pretty well, most people are getting it right and those who get a warning are generally going back and adding their names. Those who ignore the warning have been getting 10 points for failure to return.

As of Saturday (tomorrow) the initial infraction will rise to me hunting down you and your family 10 points and those who ignore it and don't return will get an extra 10 on top. Those who do it more than once can look forward to higher infractions and being banned from posting in the forum at all.

Thanks to almost everyone so far for their co-operation.
