We have it directly from Jeff that there is to be absolutely no account selling on the forums.

While you are still allowed to sell accounts, it cannot be done so via the forums.

All account sales and transfers are done at the players' own risk. Moderators cannot do anything if there are any scams.


Buying and selling horses, items, credits (except mod gift credits), etc is still allowed on the forums, and for real-life money, but is done so at the players' own risk.

But yet your still allowed to sell pbs, art, item packages ect for real money This ridiculous if thats all allowed why not accounts. If people are going to say well its liability reason. You could still be liability sorry its just stupid then people even though say that they supports this stupid rule don't becuase they do the same thing an all the above.

It's because the original owner of the account can use the email to claim the account back if the buyer doesn't change it.

Just because you don't have anything to back up what you say it just funny how you want to ignore all the people who say i got my horse stole or my pbs or my items but yet there okay to sell for real money Not accounts

There doesn't need to be any reason other than the fact that Jeff said this is the rule.

If you want to argue or debate it with someone, moderators are not it. We don't make the rules, we enforce them. Jeff makes the rules forum, game, or otherwise related to Ponybox.

Hey, I don't make the rules. Just enforce them. If you have a problem with the rule, message Jeff.

Anything regarding the sale of accounts is to remain 100% off of the forums.

Comparing account selling to selling horses/PBs/credits/etc. is comparing apples to oranges. Once the exchange of those is done, there's no way for the previous owner to attempt to re-claim them. There is very little risk with them (although I personally do not like the selling of PBs for RL currencies, however I just scroll past that). These exchanges can also always go through a Mod to ensure that both ends of the deal is upheld. Account selling, on the other hand, can go wrong if the new owner forgets to change the password or email address. Unfortunately, not everyone is honest and I have seen previous owners log in to their old accounts and make them inaccessible to the new owner. There's lots of liability there and for that reason it makes a lot of sense that it is not allowed on the forums.

Just want to confirm what the moderators are enforcing. Account selling is not allowed on the forums. Once an account is sold it is difficult to determine who is the owner at a later time when either the original owner forgets they sold it and verifies ownership to get the login, or in the unfortunate cases when someone is intentionally scamming.

We typically dont have this issue with horses, etc, and if we do the damage is limited and much easier to resolve.

Hope this helps!
