It's good that you read the rules, but I think you should read rule #2 again.

Rule 13 doesn't imply nonsensical posting. It is encouraging you to take part in the community.

Can we add a rule to the B/S/T forum to end the sales of counterfeit rares? It's outrageous that people can make huge profits off of games that could easily be re-purposed into scamming a collector. This sort of thing is already dealt with among reputable repro-makers, Ebay, and Nintendo Age. Why are we still allowing it here?

Oh, and I'm not even talking about the goofy Famiclone pirate stuff; that would be a lot of work for a scammer to turn one of those into something that could scam a collector. And those are genuinely a cheaper alternative for gamers to play on original consoles. (Unlike that $120 Dino Peak fake being peddled in the forum right now...)

I agree. At the very lease change the label or clearly state reproduction on the label.

I'm just going to go ahead and give the rules thread a bump just to remind our members that while we do run a fairly lax forum, we still want this to be a place other members(especially new ones) can post in without feeling judged or that their input isn't needed or wanted. For the most part everyone is doing an awesome job and id just like to say thanks to you all for keeping this place pleasant. Having said that, if anyone sees a post they think is inappropriate or breaking a rule, please don't hesitate to click report to moderator.

Thanks everyone.

I agree with this.  I don't like the repro thing for the most part, so much of the stuff these days just looks counterfeit to me, and it makes it easy for the collectors to get scammed.
