Subject: Is it illegal to sell coups?

There is a coup service going on right now and people are charging real money. I want this site to be a community not a personal advertisement scum bag site. People should be doing that out of their kindness of their heart.

Due to recent complaints about my company, TacoCoups Incouperated, I have made my own thread on the matter within the home of the script, Coup D Bungie.

If you have any requests, questions, comments, or issues with TacoCoup Incouperated, please post them here. Thank you.

Prices:
Simple Coups, Coups that are just an Avatar and Titlebar, cost $10.

Complex Coups, Coups that contain at least 2 background images, cost $15.

Color decider, a new service that will give you the best colors for your coup, costs $5.

In a time long past, the armies of the dark came again to the lands of men. Their leaders became known as the fallen lords, and their terrible sorcery was without equal in the west.
In 30 years they reduced the civilized nations into carrion and ash. Until the free city of Madrigal alone defined them. An army gathered there, and a desperate battle was joined against the fallen
Heros were born in the fire and bloodshed of the wars which followed and their names and deeds will never be forgotten

Stupidity, when sufficiently advanced, is indistinguishable from magic

Why would it be illegal? The advertising is certainly against forum rules, but there's nothing wrong with charging for a service, I suppose.

No, it is wrong. You can;t use Bungie.net to sell things or advertise.

I don't think we're quite on the same page here... when I say it's not illegal I mean it's not against the actual law. As in, he won't be paying the government a fine or having cops knock down his door. Whether it's against the rules is probably up to the admin of the particular group (although the site rules might apply, but I personally doubt it).

Coup is not officially endorsed or even liked by Bungie. I really don't think they care.

We live in capitalist America. You can sell whatever you like, however Bnet's ToU prohibits you from arranging it on this site. I believe this counts as a violation, although censoring the username would be courteous.

Hold it right there.

Hello. Name's Brian. Look, if you're looking for a flame war with me, just open up the Flood and write up some not-nice things about religion and I'll bring my nukes to the party.

If you want some other way to contact me, you can forget it.

This rule only applies to the public forums.

Who said anything about private groups?

I don't mean to sound combative, but your statement could probably stand to be backed up. One person acting sure of himself isn't proof.
(And I'm sorry that I can't communicate tone better via text, I mean no disrespect whatsoever.)

A. Private Groups
B. Unless you can prove that money was exchanged you have no way to back up your claims. Now stop this, this has become far too silly

That's a stupid ass question to an even more stupid idea....Coup is free, pictures are acquired from google...you come up with your own title....Why in hell the thought of a "coup market" was ever conceived is beyond me.

I'm not going to moderate trolling of that level, that got taken that seriously.

While Coup isn't endorsed by Bungie, they don't want people selling anything on the site, even in groups.

^^^^I guess it is a group mod problem.

Two members were played by a simple joke in our group folks. The Coup selling service wasn't serious at all.
