    Tired of repeatedly answering this but I'll try and cover all the points. I'm trying to play non-depo, also I have no credit card to even use. MA IS NOT an investment, it's a casino, and the only casino game I play is Texas hold'em because it's one of a few games where you aren't competing against the casino. There is no risk to my trading as I'm not investing in the flexible MU I'm investing in sweat and I buy low enough where I can still find buyers aside from my current ones. I don't pay out with other people's money it all goes together and I keep track with pencil, paper and a calculator. All you got to do for a withdrawal is tell me how much you want and wait till I sell the current stock.

    They make it hard enough with their stupid game, adding rules to it just because people complain is just them trying to save their own ass.

    Classic ... do you have the same high regard for rules like, theft, fraud, etc ... where does your disregard for rules start and stop. Does your "system" have rules ... ah yes ... that we "can withdraw whenever we want" ... do you follow that rule with the same rigour you apply to EU Law?

    I've got to stop now a little bit of wee just came out.

    Hilarious.

    I'm a teenager, I'm not young though and the only reason I'm mad is because no one is even willing to try this. I'm not trying to take my mom's money that's why I made this whole idea: So I can play non-depo and still move large amounts of sweat.

    Don't get mad listen, learn and do something that people want.

    You're having a tantrum because we won't give you our money to play your game with.

    You're different than the other people that comment. Most criticize my idea, you on the other hand are specifically targeting me and I'm not sure what I even did to you. You aren't convincing the community that my ideas bad, every other person has been saying the same thing.

    I think it's time to leave the kid alone. The issues and problems have been discussed to death. People who read his thread can see what has been written and make their own judgement. No need to escalate into a personal thing.

    To answer your private post. I am not trying to "set you up for anything" and your comment of "I don't want to humiliate you" is, well you know.

    Absolutely no intention to be personal other than the fact you asked people to trust you as a person.

    I'm out. Good luck with it.

    And this is the main issue most of us are trying to point out here. You say you will not scam us but you most likely will at some point in time get so pissed off at the game that you will just leave and never show your face again leaving anyone who did give you money at a loss. And that there would then turn you into a scammer.

    Also Slapnuts has been here since the very beginning of the game.

    Hmm...

    You sir...

    EU is not a casino. You do not play Texas because you are 15. Also, the stupid rules are there to protect the investments far greater than a few normal yearly wages.

    Also, you seem to have competition now that is impossible to beat.

    If the poll is indicative of anything at all, it shows that a large majority of the community clearly do not approve of the idea, and continuously shoving it down our throats will not make us any more receptive to it, nor will it help your reputation. Furthermore, as Slapnuts has already said, it goes against EU's Terms of Use. How are you going to answer to the people who gave you their money once MA locks your account and their money disappears into oblivion?

    If I was going to rage quit I would have done it long ago. Yes I just thought it was odd he had so little posts.

    No one trusts this guy, his ideas violate TOS, he acts very unprofessionally, and his main post is written like a get rich quick scheme. It would probably be wise if a moderator simply closes the topic to prevent this from being drawn out any further.

    To the OP, work on your writing style and how you respond to criticism, as well as your reputation. Once you are well known in game and on the forums it will be easier to gain momentum in a venture, and the more you play the more you will understand the type of businesses that work. You will however need to get over this mindset that the game is not a investment, if you want to start a serious business you need starting income, Entropia is no different, you cant ask people to invest when you say you are unwilling to invest yourself.

    I missed which terms of use were being violated? There's nothing wrong with the idea that I can see, just that it's based on trust.

    To the OP, there's nothing wrong with the idea, if you want to try it, go ahead. You may learn some business principles, the value of reputation and trust, and other valuable skills. To anyone wants to invest, always keep in mind (of course) that if someone runs off with your peds in game, or gets banned, or breaks their computer, etc. you won't get a refund from MA. So don't loan someone more than you're comfortable losing.

    My mining company is also based on trust and works great, however it's a little more straightforward as my miners can keep track of their returns and MU etc and see if my records are the same. A trading venture wouldn't be as easy to log. I've been trust-scammed by a couple of my employees (probably about 4000 ped total, one new miner who got a 2500 ped hof ran away). That may seem like a lot, but for perspective, I've loaned out more than 2 million peds to over 200 trustworthy miners.
