On my main my trades are always off, because when I turn them on it goes crazy with requests.

If someone whispers me to trade I'll ask them to trade and will look through their inventory, but if I don't see anything I like I say thanks and good luck and cancel.
No point in staying in a trade that I'm not going to get anything I want out of.

I despise when people offer me fountain items. I have a side with hundreds of pages of fountain items I don't need anymore.

As far as the newbies go, I try to offer them free stuff, but then they want my rare so I don't give free stuff out anymore, but if I'm on a side and I see one I let them take what ever they want since usually my sides have my doubles and stuff I no longer like bvo and other stuff.

Please remember you may be playing with small children in bearville that do not understand the values you place on your items.
Also the value of things is just your opinion on what an item is worth to you.
Some people may not like the same items you do or be as attatched to an item like you are.

Almost forgot, I also can't stand it when people start offering me their stuff. I wish people would just look through my stuff and see if they want anything, then let me look through theirs. Don't just start off by telling me what you're going to give me without even letting me look, it's rude.

Sometimes I'll make an offer more as a good faith gesture than anything -- I worry it'll look bad if I try to trade with nothing on my side.

I was kind of thinking the same thing myself. Thanks for pointing this out!

I could understand that, but some people when it's your turn to look at their stuff and you change the items, they automatically cancel the trade. I don't understand why they expect to choose from all your stuff but only allow you to choose one or two items of theirs. I guess people just need to remember the golden rule: Treat others the way you would want to be treated. Do that, and you can't go wrong

One thing I also hate is when they are starting the trade, they take something from me like my TV and then put a flower seed for me and say I can't have anything else. I just cancel. When I'm looking for fountain items, I go to Town Square and ask 'Would anyone trade me a fountain item from this month for a good amount of bear bills?' Many people request, but when I see they're giving me a fountain item for 2,000 BB, I just cancel.

I do that all the time, when I don't see anything I like in a trade I try to give them something I don't need so I don't seem rude, but people seem to think I'm a pushover and try to just take my BVO stuff for nothing.. I cancel if they do that, I don't like canceling because it annoys me when others do it to me, but sometimes I have to x_x

Yes I often try to give newbies gifts. They ask me for a trade but they don't have anything I want so I usually have to take out the credit items that they have asked for but I usually add an old fountain item I have too many of or even an item I made at the mall. More often than not despite the fact I say it is a gift they take it out, put the credit item back & add 2000 bb. I tell them not good nothing now & cancel. That is soooo rude !

I also hate it when newbies ask for rare furniture and credit furniture for 25bb and they don't even have a cub condo.

From the behaviour that I've seen, I think that there are quite a few people that 'pose' as new users... but they are side accounts of not-new users.

That's something I've seen quite a lot of -- people posing as new users in order to get things. It's very sad (seriously, this is only a game with virtual items - they aren't real), and it's also very manipulative.

I know most people here are trying to be nice when they see someone that they think is a new user, but keep in mind -- especially if they go immediately to your rarest items in a trade -- they may not be so new after all.

This is one of the many myriad reasons why I have all trades blocked at all times.
