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.

Rules for trading on Diablo2.io

  • The use of real money (RMT), D2JSP, or any other out-of-game currency is prohibited. Personally I've got nothing against alternative trading setups like this, but I want to keep trades on the site here limited to in-game currencies only.
  • For now, trades will stay up indefinitely, but there will soon be a threshold where your trades will 'expire' after a certain time if they are not sold.
  • You can only bump your Trade to the top of the list once per day (there is a physical limit on this so that you can't, even if you wanted to).
  • Any reports on traders are taken seriously - if you've clearly broken the rules this will result in permanent email, username, and IP bans.

Tips for trading on Diablo2.io

  • 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. Makes it easier for browsers to see the stats too.
  • 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.
  • Trades expire if they have had no views or comments for one week - this helps keep the database healthy and the market fresh. Trades marked as sold however remain indefinitely as an archive of price history that can be accessed with the price checker tool.

Any other queries or suggestions regarding the rules are welcome 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.

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.

You don't usually need to take a screenshot unless you found something GG like some rare jewel. Mostly just to show off.

No great way at the moment. We have a website patch coming soon which will make it easier to search for charms. Problem with them is they have essentially random names (well not really random, but nobody knows their names from memory), so the current system you have to guess what somebody named it. If you're looking for a skill charm, for example, try searching for the class name and see what comes up.
