[META] PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING!!!! Rules v3.0 & the Introduction of Your New Overlord!
Hey, /pmsforsale! It's time to update the rules again. The entire point is to make this community better and safer for everyone involved.
NEW RULES v3.0!!!
With the addition of a new shiny bot (SuperShinyBot), we figured it was time for some new rules. First, "Trade completed!" is the new call to get points. Your flair will now look something like: "S: 129 | B: 0". Where "S" stands for trades as a seller, and "B" stands for sales as a buyer. There are three different colors (if you're on old reddit). Red, silver, and gold. These colors only apply to your seller points. If you have <10, you're labeled red, even if you've done hundreds of transactions as a buyer. This means to proceed with caution. 10-99 is silver, which means you're a regular, and gold is for 100+. Really, red is the important one. Please note that it is "Trade completed!" We are changing that, because we only want you to initiate the bot after the buyer has received their goods, and is happy. If you’re caught abusing this, we will hand out a ban. Here's an example of how it would work:
Buyer comments in WTS post
BuyeSeller reach agreement
Buyer messages Seller when package arrives/is happy
Seller comments on Buyer's comment with "Trade completed!"
Buyer and Seller leave Feedback
The most common question that will more than likely be asked: But what about the last two years? Do I get points for that??? No. Why? Let's pretend like those two years never happened and that this is a new sub, okay? Thank you! Realistically, I'm paying out of my pocket for this bot, and on top of that, it could easily be manipulated anyway. Yes, it sucks. You, like me, would have many more points if he was working for the last two years. Older user's points were automatically converted to seller points. I am aware that this is a flawed system, but if you've been here for the last two years and you haven't scammed someone yet, then chances are you aren't going to. But as always, proceed with caution. Secondly, in three to six months (this hasn't been decided yet), there are going to be major rule changes. I'm not going to go into detail, but the changes are to prevent scammers. But one thing I can assure you? You're all going to hate them. Start forging your sharpest pitchforks. Third, posts have to start with [WTS], [WTT], or [WTB]. All others will be automatically removed by your new overlord. This is because he is setup to award buyer and seller points based on this tag. Cancer-Cheater, what about [META] posts? Well, they'll be removed. Send a PM to the mod team, and we will respond and if we feel it is appropriate, we will approve it. Why all these rule changes?? Because I'm fucking lazy, and want SuperShinyBot to do the heavy lifting. Fourth. No more cross posts! At all! The reason being is that we have different rules and a different system from /coins4sale. Additionally, once a year, Cancer-Cheater will be creating a post asking for donations to keep this bot running. I would appreciate if you could all support it. I would do PayPal, or silver donations and I'll pay it myself. It looks like it’ll be between $7 and $14 a month. My sincerest apologies for this taking so long; I'm aware this is long overdue.
Rules v2.0: (just copy and pasted from the old META post) Unless it is posted here, any other rule of this sub remain the same. Rule Changes and Adjustments New Rules: We’ve decided to allow the selling of bullion related items! A lot of you have asked about it, and we’ve decided it is a good idea. I’m sure this will need some fine tuning, but for now, we are keeping it as bullion related. For instance, capsules, books, albums, or storage. Bullion related items have to be sold along with bullion. We are making this a requirement so /pmsforsale doesn’t become swamped with WTS threads for bullion related items. Want to Buy [WTB] posts: You can now only post one WTB post every 48 hours. Want to Sell [WTS] posts: WTS posts are to be made ONCE every 48 hours. For clarification, when your last WTS post reads “submitted 2 days ago by XXXX”, that means it has been 48 hours. If you have more items for sale, please update your flair if it hasn’t been 48 hours. Since this has been an issue as of late, if you post another WTS/WTT thread within 48 hours of your previous one we will remove the new one, and you won’t be able to post another for 48 hours from the time that your new thread was posted. Repeat offenders will be handled on a case by case basis. Proof Pictures: For every WTS thread, you are required to provide at least one proof picture. This proof picture has to have a handwritten note with today’s date AND your username. We know it can be a hassle, but even if you posted two days ago, you have to post an updated photo. RULE CHANGE: For now on, unless the item is sealed, for example, a tube of coins, we are asking that you remove them from the tube for the proof picture, and for sealed tubes, we ask that you place it on its side when taking a picture, so we know there are coins in it. Same goes for bullion that comes in government packaging (proof eagles, for example). Want to Trade [WTT] posts: Just like a WTS post, you have to provide a proof picture of all the items you’re wanting to trade, and you can only make one post every 48 hours. The same proof pictures apply to a WTT thread. We do not allow WTT posts of people trading non bullion items for bullion. Copper Bullion: Because of the interest shown in this lately, we've decided to allow copper bullion. Rule Change: Copper bullion is now permitted - this includes things like SBSS/Zombucks rounds, copper bars, etc. As before, copper pennies sold in bulk and as bullion will still be allowed. Numismatic base metal coins (cents, nickels, etc.) are still NOT acceptable. As a clarification, since there's been some confusion all around about this - packaged sets of coins that contain base metal coins alongside silvegold coins ARE allowed. (e.g., proof sets with silver coins, Coin and Chronicles sets, etc.) Payments: If someone posts a WTS or WTT thread, and they want to accept gift cards, we will allow that. But you cannot post that you have gift cards or other items for trade for bullion. Typical payments are PayPal, Google Wallet, cryptocurrencies, check, cashier’s check, and money order.
Recommended Practices: Let me start off by saying that these are simply recommended practices, and not rules of this subreddit. For any transaction, a level of trust is required. Check /pmsfeedback to see feedback for any user you're considering a transaction with. You may also use the flair next to their name in this subreddit - however, understand that this is only an indication of volume of transactions, and does not take into account how the transaction went, only that it was initiated. Be sure you're satisfied with the security of the deal before sending funds or metals to another user. If you're not entirely satisfied, do not hesitate to ask to use a secure payment method, such as Paypal Goods & Services, or to ask a trusted member to serve as an escrow - or whatever else you deem necessary. If you can't come to terms that make both parties feel comfortable, just wait for another opportunity. Just as a reminder, the mods of /pmsforsale do not vouch for any particular user or guarantee any transaction. That's entirely between the parties of any particular deal, so be sure you do your own due diligence and make sure YOU are comfortable with any risk you choose to take. While the overwhelming majority of transactions that have taken place here have gone off without a hitch, remember that all transactions here are done at your own risk. Suggested layout for creating a WTS or WTT listing: This is a general guideline and not a necessity. Proof Picture: Provide a clear proof picture with your username, today’s date, and all the items you are selling or trading. Also include plenty of close up shots if you feel it is necessary. Precious metal buyers like to know exactly what they’re getting, and clear pictures will help in preventing any issues. [Imgur](www.imgur.com) is the most popular image hosting site on /pmsforsale, and simple to use. Payment Options: List your payment options – PayPal Goods & Services, PayPal Friends & Family, Google Wallet, Bitcoin, other cryptos, or what you’re looking for to trade. Items For Sale or Trade: List each item you have for sale or trade, along with the price after it, unless you’re looking for offers. If there is anything worth nothing about the item (condition, rarity, etc), put it here. Shipping: Make sure you state if your prices include shipping, or if it is separate. If separate, state how much shipping will be, and where you’ll ship to. Also mention who covers the insurance cost if you offer it. Helpful Hint: Printing a shipping label is easy, and cheaper through PayPal. This link to PayPal takes you directly to set up a shipping label. Anything under 13 ounces can be shipped via USPS First Class Mail with free tracking. Thanks to spockdad, here is a wonderful video on how to securely package your items to ensure it arrives safely to the buyer!

BAT Community Weekly Update: 08/31/17 to 09/7/17 — BAT/Brave @ ETHWaterloo, big surge in distribution of BAT
We're back :) Big thanks to MurphD for helping assemble this week's community update! Everyone especially loves the BAT in the News section! BAT is attending and sponsoring ETHWaterloo (October 13 – 15, 2017): The world's largest Ethereum hackathon. Our own CTO Brian Bondy will be one of the judges. We are also sending a team to compete. Vitalik Buterin is the keynote. Go Team BAT! More info at https://ethwaterloo.com/ Regional Community Leader Spotlight Interview (Maicon.junge from BAT Brasil)
When did you hear about Brave/BAT, and what got you motivated to help out?
I learned of the project in January 2016 through a report on a Brazilian technology portal, but I only started using Brave in June of this year. However, I´m very satisfied with the performance of the browser. I have seven years of experience in financial markets and, with a little analysis, I saw that the BAT would be a great investment opportunity in the medium / long term. BAT has a great product, is working very well, an incredible idea and a market of billions of dollars that is ripe for an enormous revolution. I decided to help because I want to be part of the change. I believe that very little is needed for the current model of digital advertising to become obsolete. We will be the reference, the pioneers in a new world.
Why would BAT/Brave be a good thing for Brazil, or why do you think BAT would be a great fit for people in Brazil?
According to the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics (IBGE), the public foundation responsible for official surveys, the use of the mobile phones is the main means of access to the Internet in Brazil. For example, in 2014, it was more than 80% of Brazilian households. Last year, it was 92%. On the other hand, according to a survey of more than 100 countries by the UN specialized agency (International Telecommunication Union), the average price of broadband in Brazil is one of the highest (per the relation between the value charged by 1Mbps (megabit per second) and the income of the population). Brave will benefit Brazilians greatly as a result. To get an idea of the impact, with the use of Brave in the cell phone, individuals can save on average US$23 per month, which represents 7.68% of the Brazilian minimum wage!
What are some future initiatives you hope to put in place?
I intend to create and strengthen ties in the BAT community in Brazil and around the world. I want to create and encourage global marketing campaigns. I want to attend some technology events here in Brazil and present Brave as a viable and effective option for a faster and safer Internet, and BAT as the precursor to the new digital ad model. I'm also working on a lecture about BAT/BRAVE, and hope to distribute some gifts to the participants, including wallets with some tokens.
— We are coming up with all kinds of interesting grassroots marketing initiatives. If you have any ideas or want to get involved, join the Rocket.chat and checkout the #guerilla-marketing channel, and get in touch with your local BAT regional leader. If there isn't one for your region, come on the Rocket.chat and volunteer and we'll see if we can get you setup! :) Exodus Eden Wallet Supports BAT! Exodus Eden is a cutting edge release with new features and more assets than the official version of Exodus including Bitcoin Cash, many ERC20 tokens, including BAT. https://www.exodus.io/eden/ Big surge in BAT distribution Over 15,000 holders, up more than 4,000 from a week ago! https://etherscan.io/token/BAT Brave releases Android version 1.0.31 See 1.0.31 milestone for all tickets Brave releases desktop version 0.18.29 See 0.18.29 milestone for all tickets BAT/Brave in the News: Want true privacy? You need to check out this browser Brave, a new web browser challenging bigger rivals like Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, wants to take privacy on the internet to the next level. Like all other browsers, Brave includes a "private browsing" option that leaves no traces of online activity on your computer and makes websites think you've never visited before. But the startup is working on adding a new level of protection to its private tabs by incorporating the Tor Project's network identity-hiding technology. https://www.cnet.com/news/privacy-browser-brave-tor-trump/ Hands On With The Brave Browser I have five core computing devices I go back to regularly, a Mac mini, a Windows 10 desktop, a Windows 10 2-in-1, an iPhone and an iPad Air 2. On those, I'm going to persist with Brave. https://www.lifehacker.com.au/2017/09/hands-on-with-the-brave-browse Like Privacy? Try Brave It’s focused on privacy, blocking ads and especially trackers on both desktop and mobile devices. In addition to the privacy improvements, the speed improvements are b-a-n-a-n-a-s. I’ve particularly come to value the clean, tracker-free approach during the transfer window, as loading a Liverpool Echotransfer liveblog can be an exercise in frustration, thanks to all the ads and trackers. http://www.chronicle.com/blogs/profhackelike-privacy-try-brave/64341 Brave Team Tweets:
