Hi,

This thread has been created to provide a better method of reporting player attempts at Price Manipulation in the item discussion threads.

What is price manipulation?



Price manipulation is, on the forums at least, deliberately posting false item prices in order to deceive other players and manipulate the price of an item.

Posting a price which is not the same as others is not price manipulation - there may be different prices for the same item depending on who is selling and buying. Just because a player deviates from the prices set by established FCs and traders does not automatically make them a price manipulator.

To clarify, saying you think an item might be worth X in the future is not price manipulation. Saying an item insta-sells/buys for a price which is undeniably false (a santa hat for 50M below it's true value for instance) is price manipulation. With that said, a common sense approach does apply - if it's obvious then we'll see that.

How do I know if someone is manipulating prices?


There is no sure way to know whether someone is manipulating or not, unless you already know the price for an item. It is best to do your research and look in multiple places to determine whether a price is accurate.

Reporting



Each report will need the following

RSN being reported:
Post being reported: (Link to the post)
Evidence of manipulation:


Considerations



1. Only report cases where you are sure price manipulation is occurring ie the reports of price changes are being falsified.

2. Reported accounts will be monitored carefully and checked for historic as well as current trading irregularities. This means action will not be immediate and may happen some significant time after investigation has begun.

3. Malicious reporting of price manipulation will result in actions being taken against the account that reported falsely. We recommend that all reports are seriously considered before being made.
