More about B/S/T
T 1.1 - DO NOT use Buy/Sell/Trade post to discuss anything other than buying, selling, or trading.
T 1.2 - DO NOT use another account to deceive players in the buy/sell/trade in any way.
T 2.1 - When using the trade forums, unlike most other areas the creator of a thread dictates the rules for his post. Respect the requests of the thread creator along with following the below posted rules. When creating a thread make sure to be clear about the post, and expectations of posters.

F 3.1 - Forgotten Realms reserves the right to add, alter or otherwise change any and all of the terms at any given time without notification to anyone at that time. Over-all we expect all players to be respectful, mature, and have general common sense in all situations of Forgotten Realms. Forgotten Realms provides a free online gaming service to anyone in the world. With that, the staff at Forgotten Realms has, does and will continue to put an enormous amount of time into the project as possible to ultimately give all players and people the ultimate, nostalgic gaming experience they miss. All we ask in return, is for you to abide by our rulesets.

Please note, that if you find a bug or see someone abusing a bug or part of the terms stated above and you chose to abuse it rather than reporting it, it will result in possible removal from the game permanently. Instead we offer wearable rewards for those who come forward with such large (game changing, economy changing) bugs or bring us to light with those who may be using such things. If you find such a thing, we expect all players to do the right thing and come forward with it. Failure to do so could result in possible permanent removal from the game.

Simply put: If you play the game normally, you will be fine. If you abuse third party programs, take short cuts, use a lot of automation play styles, or abuse multiple accounts you are not abiding by our rules set here and we will take action on a per situation basis.
