Rules & Tips for Trading on Diablo2.io

Description

Here I've summarised the rules for using the trading marketplace, as well as some other useful advice for selling successfully.
For an up-to-date and comprehensive guide on how to use the marketplace to its full potential, read the patch notes for v1.0 here.
Also worth looking at is Hoost's Guide to Trading on D2io which has some sage advice.

Rules for trading on diablo2.io

  • The use of real money trading (RMT), D2JSP, or any other out-of-game currency is prohibited. Personally I've got nothing against alternative trading setups like this; I just want to keep trades on the site here limited to in-game item bartering. Therefore any and all RMT trading of any kind is prohibited on diablo2.io . Let's keep it fun guys.
  • The market is moderated by real people and any reports submitted will be read and actioned on by someone eventually. Please be nice to them, they have a lot of reports to go through every single day. When you make a report, make it detailed and important enough to justify the attention of the moderators. Things like 'this guy said he had
    Jah
    but he only had
    Mal
    ' are to be avoided - we cannot take action on things that happened outside of the site.
  • Any kind of foul behaviour or attitude towards the mods (who are literally just trying to help you) is strictly not tolerated. I will personally ensure that any reports of harassment towards mods here on the site are followed up on. Treat these guys with respect and they will return the same courtesy. You can appeal any mod decisions made of course, if any, just don't be an ass about it.
  • Do not poach other people's trade threads - If you have an item for trade, create your own trade thread. Do not post it in other people's trade threads to compete with the original poster of the thread.
  • Poaching only refers to other sellers entering a trade thread to offer their items to compete with the original post. Sellers who create a trade thread for their item should expect other sellers to be watching their thread. It is an open market and nothing can be done about other sellers sending direct messages to people who make offers for items. Sellers are encouraged to get into a game with a player offering an item as soon as they can in order to close their deals. Along the same line, buyers are also encouraged to get into a game with the seller as soon as possible so they can close the deal before somebody else gets to it.
  • Traders are expected to get as much as they can for their items as soon as they can. Trades are not completed until items have been exchanged. This is not an auction site and no commitments are made in either direction until a trade actually takes place in-game. Buyers are encouraged to get into a game with the player offering the item as soon as they can in order to close their deals.
  • If you are having trouble with someone commenting your trades, please just use the squelch feature (Top right dropdown > Account Prefs > Squelch a Trader). It is a tool available to you to use freely to hide people annoying you. Please don't report them until you've tried this out, it may solve your issue straight away without us having to intervene.

Other Tips & Tricks for trading on diablo2.io

Notes from before v1.0 which are still relevant:
  • When uploading a screenshot, make sure it's cropped to exactly the dimensions of the item's tooltip in-game - no need to see anything else outside of this. You can paste directly from the clipboard when making a new trade, or drag the image into the editor, or upload it manually.
  • Make your comment on your trade ad as descriptive as possible. The use of abbreviations and acronyms is highly discouraged as most newer players won't know what they mean. Furthermore, the more descriptive your comment is, the more keywords the search engine can pick up on, meaning your trades will get more visits and sell faster.
  • Trades expire if they have had no comments for 3 days running - this helps keep the database healthy and the market fresh. Trades marked as sold also remain visible for 3 days after the last post was made. Just before they expire, sold trades are converted into historical price data which can be accessed using the price checker tool, and the original listing is deleted.
  • If you're confused about what something does, hover over it to see helpful tooltips with guidance on usage/best practises. For detailed guidance on the site's mechanics and how to maximise your trading potential, please read the patch notes for v1.0 here.

Capturing screen contents - the PrntScrn key, Win-Shift-S, the Snipping tool & Screenshots

1 The PrntScrn key [All Windows versions] - this inappropriately-named key captures the current screen or window to the clipboard.

2 Win-Shift-S [Windows 10] - this captures a user-selectable area of the screen to the clipboard.

3 The Snipping Tool [Windows 7 onwards] - this captures a user-selectable area of the screen and allows it to be saved as a graphics file.

4 Screenshots [Windows 10] - this captures the whole screen as a graphics file.

Something that I don't see mentioned is crossposting. No doubt there will be other websites used for trading, so is there any rule against crossposting items?
As long as the item is removed from this site after it has been traded on another site, is posting it on other sites still allowed?
I'd imagine for some high value items that people would to get as many eyes on them as possible.

In terms of item listings expiring, I think that is a good idea. Having a listing expire 48 hours after posting seems like a good spot. Anything more than that the item could just be relisted.
That being said, instead of limiting items once per day, if they just have a hard limit of one bump per listing period. That solves both issues. Item listings would only last for 48 hours, and let you bump them once.
Thoughts?

There's a lot of programming complexity to what you're suggesting re: bump once per expiry etc.

Bottom line is this - for now I want to keep trades indefinitely just so I can see how the site works with a bit of price history etc. but when the game releases, I'll reset and purge everything, and the trades will have a 1 week expiry subject to change depending on activity. Bumps remain once per day, unless it gets busy in which case I can reduce that to 6 hours.

Of course people can do whatever they like with their items as far as posting goes. No way are we going to impose some rule on people and enforce it like that, athough of course it would be ideal, the reality will be different :) Hoping the expiry and some goodwill will be enough to keep people from leaving expired trades up. Even if they do, its their loss as they'd continue to be solicited for the item they'd already sold, which is an incentive in itself.

Price history would remain indefinitely of course for that historical check people will want.

That's fine, but I don't see why anyone would do that when there is alredy a 'Bump' option for Trades.

Edit: Wait did I remove that button by accident in patch 0,5? 😂

I was looking at the create trade functionality and have a few questions.

Do your profile details determine how a new trade you create gets categorized?

If I purchase the game on Switch and PC, will I need separate accounts for each?

Additionally, if I switch my profile details from Non-Ladder to Ladder, what will happen to my existing trades that are posted?

Thanks!

Yes, but you can link these two accounts together, allowing you to switch between them without logging in/out. Check out the 'account info' section of your control panel.

As soon as you switch to Ladder, all your trades will also be listed as a ladder character.

Added a trade search to the main marketplace so you can look for any item traded within the last 24 hours (both active and sold). This will help those who instantly want to find a trade for a specific item.

Trades will now expire after a week give-or-take and be deleted forever. Trades marked as sold however remain as an archive of price history that can be accessed with the price checker tool.

Some small optimisations that seem to have had a good effect on server stability, dedicated server is still due tomorrow (Monday), after which I can remove the CloudFlare CAPTCHA and the site should be much faster.

I don't see why it would need to be. I don't use this name for any of my in-game characters yet. Just use the site to set up the trade, then talk to your trade partner to meet up in game.

No it doesn't, but I suppose it helps. If you have a different character name, you can set it in your profile settings, and it shows on your profile.

Yeah, it’s working now. Just took a day or so for classification to show up.

How can we bump? Either I am blind or there is no button? Do we just reply to our own thread?

Edit: Is there a 24h timer until I see the button?

The bump button is working - if you don't see it, it means that it's on a cooldown - should be 6 hours.

i suppose it is 24h: i don't see it on 17h old trade but another one has it


also, what does bumping actually do? I've bumped a trade 10 mins ago but don't see it in active trades, they are still sorted by created_at field, i guess

Ah yes you're right - it's 24h. The bump button raises it to the top of the marketplace - the one place it doesn't 'rise' is in your profile on active trades - but that will be fixed next patch.
