We've been around for a little over a year. This site is run by me with 400+ feedback on eBay and over 200 virtual transactions on other sites mainly dealing with MMORPG goods, Xbox Live codes, designing and programming sites. The name is a spin off of gamefaqs.com because people are here asking questions about virtual goods rather than games. I hope to empower people with knowledge on how trade virtual goods successfully, and this is demonstrated in my first Virtual FAQ for PayPal. As you see here, there's tons of info. http://virtualfaqs.com/forum/paypal/574-paypal-virtual-faq.htmlBitcoin forum here.http://virtualfaqs.com/forum/#bitcoins-marketplaceHere's how my forum is different from others.
1. We run vbulletin and it has many many cool features.
2. Other forums are highly cluttered by people trading millions of other items for BTC. There is a forum is for buying/selling BTC only. Tangible goods go somewhere else.
2. All traders are verified before they're allowed to trade on my site. I have 2-3 years of scam prevention experience and will weed out the scammers as they register. Here's more details on how verification works. http://virtualfaqs.com/forum/verification/414-stop-paypal-mmorpg-scammers-get-virtual-faqs-verified-free.html#post1185
3. There's a feedback system in place. Since 95% of users have to have a PayPal verified email to trade that decreases the chances of fake feedback abuse like a lot of other sites.
4. I like to get personal details of my traders rather than go through an exchange for virtual goods. And I read it's such a hassle making any kind of deposit on those sites plus some are invitation only. There's also highly reputable Middlemen on my site standing by if needed.
5. People who get caught scamming have their PayPal email posted so the next person can google it and find our threads.
Hope to see you guys around! Let me know if you have any questions. There's also a Help section on the forum for any questions. No registration is required there. http://virtualfaqs.com/forum/ask-questions-about-buying-selling-virtual-faqs-questions/
PS Forgot to add... feel free to send anyone over and we can verify them even if you intend to trade on a different site.
