ok first of all
grammar plx
"letted"
"maded"

second,
scamming is illegal. it's unfair to the person who loses out, they thought they were going to trade safely, but the other person abused their trust. why would you want it legal? hmmm, you give me the impression that you're a scammer. i hope you get scammed.

There was a vote if I remember, And they voted illegal.

I don't see why you want it legel etiher, unless your some kind of *** who can't make his own money so he scams.

And no, if you get scammed its the scammers fault not your own.

The nature of the word, scam, implies dishonesty. Under what theory is it productive to encourage dishonesty?

Well scamming is illegal but it's only illegal if a GP has enough proof that you did get scammed

Scamming is illegal because people were using it to trick players, especially new ones, into losing their hard work. It's not fair to those players, and scammers deserve to get punished for that.

That's the typical bull****. Scamming is always illegal. But you can only be punished if there is enough proof, be it from a GP or not.

Yup, and just for those thinking "HeHe, i just will make sure a GP isn't around!" I got news for you! Most of the scammers i have jailed/had trades reversed, have been trades where i was never there. Their are so many different logs and things a GP can do, that its near impossible to avoid being caught. And just because you get away with it and a day goes by, tht does not mean your safe at all, just so you know! In addition, if I catch you scamming, I ALWAYS jail, and depending on the frequency of you scamming, you will be banned. And NO you do not keep the items you scam, so you don't win

i think scamming should be legal
think about it, era is suppose to be a street/ghetto themed server.
If anything i say that if a gp is there to watch the trade or sees the scam then yes reverse it but if u werent there then its legal and fine, most of the time "noobs" dont have anything worth scamming anyway and maybe thats why there should be more info on it all. but making it illigal is kinda dumb. to me it was more made illigal to give all these gps a reason and work to do but honestly all the gps u need is squirt masa and zeus, but yet they are hiring more. idk blah blah scamming should be legal blah blah

I've always scoffed at people who try to justify scamming, it's pretty unreasonable. How do you justify stealing someone's hard earned work for a game? I could see if you were a starving hobo on the streets and needed to steal food to survive, but stealing someone's guns on a game is just ridiculous.

Ghetto theme or not, there are still laws in the ghetto. I will never, ever promote that kind of trash on Graal.

I thought it was always illegal, just kind of hard to prove.

Making scamming illegal is just another way to make GPs feel like they do something productive. In my view it's facist, they'll tell us it's illegal to PK next, as it's unfair on the other player if he has to walk from the hospital. Staff are making Era like Nazi Germany, and deophite is Hitler.
