Hi Everyone, By now some of you may have noticed a slight change and layout in the structure of the old Trading Forum. In the last couple of weeks questions have been posed as to our stance on non-Arkadian businesses and services advertising and promoting themselves on Planet Arkadia Forum. After some extensive discussion it was decided that we would like to encourage any and all trade and business within the Universe so that Arkadia can be viewed as the virtual-business hub of EU. To that end, we have made some minor, but significant, changes to the structure of the relevant forum here at PAF. We believe that this will help promote the advertisement of not only Arkadia based Services and Shops (eventually) but also those belonging to people who wish to spread themselves out into the wider Universe whilst maintaining their "home" on Arkadia - namely those that consider themselves "Interplanetary" businesses. What can you do to help? Starting today, for each person that maintains a Service or Shop thread, we ask that when you give your thread its regular BUMP!, that you include a comment on whether it is an "Arkadia only" or "Interplanetary" Service, or if you are an "Arkadian" with a Shop on another planet (thus Interplanetary shop). Obviously, when shops become available on Arkadia, thread advertising for them will go in the Shops/Arkadia sub-forum. For Example: Southern Fortress Engineering (SFE) has 2 shops on Calypso (currently) selling both Calypso and Arkadian armour. Eventually they intend to expand to an Arkadian shop presence as well and regularly do business on and off Arkadia. Their shop thread would therefore reside in the Shops/Interplanetary sub-forum. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask either by PM or post feedback below. Regards The PAF Admin Group Please note that Mentoring Services are not included in this and will be addressed separately in their own subforum under the New Player Area.
