    is it allowed to speak about giving each other a reputation in private msg ? i was told this is against rules ob bhw
    i was told this today by one seller, but....i got so many such request from big sale thread owners in past....that i am surprised to hear this

    so to make it simple:
    true giving each other rep should not be discuses in private messages ?
    false giving each other rep should not be discuses in private messages ?

    If a seller is asking you for rep they should be reported.

    "Giving each other rep" sounds like a system where you exchange rep and artificially inflate each other's rep count. That is definitely against the rules.

    If you meant exchanging itraders that is totally different and is fine.

    as LBrown said. for real buyer/seller, asking itrader is fine but rep? no.

    Quite a few sellers actually do this. I've had emails stating that the service was complete with a message at the end asking for rep. As an example, blackpayman733 has asked for + rep in the past, I've still got the PM. If only the service offered was half decent...
