What I think would be helpful is if there were a requirement before you could activate trading on your account -- go through a basic test, sorta like the jr cybearguide test, that helps you assess the value of certain items, so that you won't be scammed and won't make unfair demands.
Yup that would be a really good idea (:

This is part of the reason why I do not trade anymore.
I am happy with all my items! c:

I don't think so -- it's rather suspicious when they manage to go through my inventory and single out the PSIs. Gives the distinct impression that they know what they're doing.

But yeah, the test and also change the PSIs so they don't say they're worth only 25bb each. It makes the 'fair' meter look like it's balanced to my side if they offer 100bb for three PSIs.

I can go days without getting successful trades.
I hate it do much when people try to scam you, or be really unfair.
It's also annoying when people try to make you trade something, or act all inoccent, like "today is my birthday" and "I get no gifts! ". Then if you cancel the use the cry emote.

That's a perfect idea. Then people can't scam newbies. I've seen that happen, with people who don't know how to trade. If they have just gotten the prize, and then a person trades them for the PSI but gives them a pretty fountain item and they accept.
And another thing to add is that if you are reported for unfair trading/scamming 3 times your trading rights are taken away for 30 days, then you get to take the test again. c:

I can't believe some people do scam new people- I guess their that desperate for items. Sometimes I will just give away my stuff to new people- give them a few hundred bearbills and an outfit, you know?

Aw, that's so sweet! c: Sometimes if people are like 'it's my birthday!' and I don't really know if it's their birthday or not... I just give them like 500 BB 'cause I don't really buy things much so I have a lot of money.

Once I tried to give a newbie 2000 BB because I didn't need it and she kept looking through my stuff and asking for some rare things. So I cancelled the trade xD
There was this girl who was like "Can I borrow your shirt?" and I told her no and then she was going on about how she was making a video and she needed it to make the movie. I'm just like -______- no.

yep. I try to give newcomers some food when they take a tour with me, assuring them it's a gift, but they'll swap it out for rare items and 2000bb.

Poor newbies. They had a chance for a free gift, but they lost it. >.<
