    ChrisSilver got a reaction from GoldenGriffin in ⚠️ Please uphold your word. & please finalise any trades   
    The Silver Forum is built on trust and integrity.

    Whilst we believe that members should utilise the trading feedback system and TSF itself should not intervene in members trading between each other. On this occasion we have decided that it is better for the community to close this member's account.
    Members who wish to list items for auction please understand the risks of doing so, please see this topic here on hidden reserves not being allowed, which is linked to in the QuickStart Guide to trading, and suggests to list an auction at a minimum starting price you are willing to accept. Or, what is more recommended; simply list your trade listing as a ‘for sale’ with your asking price. You have more flexibility when listing a ‘for sale’ listing opposed to an auction, in a ‘for sale’ listing you can set your price and invite offers and then always reduce your price if there was no interest at your original asking price. Any item that is listed as an auction, the seller should uphold their word and sell at the final auction price to the applicable winning bidder. It is also not possible to list an auction on TSF if you have listed your items elsewhere. 
    Please complete any outstanding trades with @ali187 before 24th June 2021 (so by the end of 23rd June 2021 UK forum server time), when their account will then subsequently be closed.

    ChrisSilver got a reaction from Spanishsilver in ⚠️ Please be careful when trading - some basic checks you should do   
    Today we took a precautionary measure and banned an account that we believed could pose a risk to members. However, this does not mean that we will spot any suspicious accounts in the future. So please be careful when trading. 
    Members are reminded of their responsibility to do their own due diligence and the risk of trading. Please check section 7.4. Risk of trading of the forum’s rules.
     
    You may wish to take note of the following when doing your due diligence and trading:
    - How long has the member been active on the forum for? There is likely less risk when trading with long standing members.
    - How much trading feedback do they have, and is the trading feedback selling feedback? How long have they been selling on the forum for?
    - Their community reputation, is it high, have they been engaging in a lot of topics with a lot of posts?
    - The optional attached piece of paper with their forum username on, does it look authentic, please zoom in. Note that it is also relatively easy to photoshop.
    - Do they have Premium Membership? If a member has Premium Membership it means that the forum should have the name and and address of the member, or at least of the card owner. This gives us vital information to pass onto the police should it be a scam member and we are requested to pass on information.
    Some members exclusively only buy from and sell to, long standing Premium Members.
    Also, please be polite to new members listing items for sale. Everyone was a new member at one stage, and new members may need some time to build up a trading history on the forum. Note that statistically a new member listing an item for sale is more likely a genuine member than not. But please be careful when trading and report any suspicious activity immediately by using the report feature.
     
    Disclaimer: The suggestions if implemented do not change the Forum's Term’s & Conditions in regards to member's risk of trading. Please check section 7.4. Risk of trading of the forum’s rules.

    Sorry about the delay on this. Still haven’t got internet set up yet due to some installation issues the ISP encountered.
    I will however be going through the available stock for Prize Draws later and then setting up some new draws sometime today  
    So please look out for those later today. Anyway who is a football fan and who is supporting either side in today’s match, good luck and enjoy the game!

    Be aware of this member trying to make multiple accounts. One duplicate has been banned already. This is another reason why you may wish to only trade with long standing Premium Members, to hopefully try to minimise any risks, though of course please be aware of the risks of trading.

    A boat load of parcels went out today, but having to process over 100 individual orders proved too much even for the mighty efficiency of the BYB packaging department....
    This second boat load will be dispatched tomorrow.

    ChrisSilver reacted to morezone in I'm new here and would like to ask a question Re: Silver   
    @TTR
    I've moved your thread to the new member section.  You may wish to look around and familiarise yourself with the forum sections and format.
    We have a selling section for selling/buying etc.  If you have scrap silver to sell you can list it there but please read the quick start guide.
    We also have a precious metals section which includes a silver sub section where you can start discussion threads if you are unable to find answers and info using the search function.

    A bit of fun.  

    For the next large TSF prize draw to advertise and bring awareness of the forum, which will be in around a month or two. Should we double the prize and have 2x 5oz silver bars up for grabs, 2 different winners each winning a 5oz silver bar. If you think we should then like this post. 

    If this post gets 100+ likes we will give away 2x 5oz silver bars. (I have set this target deliberately low so that it is easily obtainable)

    If this post reaches 200+ likes, we will add a small bonus

    ChrisSilver got a reaction from ShropshireTom in PLATINUM DEALS - (USA & Canada) See a deal, post it here   
    Be aware of the above posts in relation to AU Bullion, apparently (at least one, so I suspect it is multiple judging by the posts from recent accounts, some posts of which have been hidden) some people are joining and deliberately promoting their company, rather than AU Bullion officially seeking advertising on TSF, (as per the words of one of the previous posters). If AU Bullion is interested in advertising they are welcome to speak to me. TSF sells advertising at extremely affordable low rates, we do not like to see when companies try to use TSF to benefit and do not even wish to purchase the low cost of membership. 

    I will ask the previous two members in this topic to upgrade their membership to confirm they are not the AU Bullion company itself.

    Edit: I have also emailed AU Bullion to ask them to join the forum with the relevant business membership where they can then enquire as to our extremely low advertising rates, rather than asking their customers and/or staff to post spam links to their company.
    Edit 2: I have been in contact with AU bullion and they will be joining and purchasing the applicable business account
