What is a vouch?

Vouches
-Vouches are statements made from one member directed towards another indicating that a service or Real-World Transaction has successfully taken place. They reflect an individual's trust in the black market on this site specifically, not necessarily any other site.



  • At Smokin Mils, we have a black market section, which can be found here. Upon successful completion of a transaction or service in this section, those involved with the transaction or service may "Vouch" each other. This vouch system can be found here.

This sounds like a great system! How do I start?

  • In order to obtain vouches, like stated above, you can complete small services and transactions to get yourself started on your road to becoming successful in the Black Market. If you look in the vouches section, you will see threads with people's names. For an example, click here to see my personal vouches thread. To get a vouches thread of your own, simply make a thread labeled "*Your Name Here*'s Vouches Thread".

That sounds simple enough. What all is vouchable on these forums?

  • There are many different things you can do to earn a vouch, and some you may not even think of at first! Below is a list of all of the sections of the Black Market on Smokin Mils, and what kind of transactions within those sections you are able to give and receive vouches for. Click here to go to The Marketplace on the forums!

Buying and Selling Gold and Items

  • This is the section of the forums where you can buy and sell Runescape Gold for real life money. You can obtain vouches in this section by:


  1. Purchasing Runescape GP to an individual. No matter if you went first in the transaction or if they went first in the transaction, both parties receive a vouch.
  2. Selling Runescape GP to an individual. No matter if you went first in the transaction or if they went first in the transaction, both parties receive a vouch.


Services

  • It is a frequent thing for an individual to purchase a paid service from another member. These services include in-game skilling, combat services, mini-games, quests, etc. You can obtain vouches in this section of the forum by:

  1. Completing services for other members of the forums. You will receive a vouch because you have been trusted on another person's account. If the person you are doing the service for PAYS you, then you may vouch in return. In this instance, as long as you were paid after the service was complete, the customer would also receive a vouch. If you complete a service for free, you still receive a vouch because you have been trusted on another person's account, but the person you provided a service for does not receive a vouch because they have not been trusted with anything.
  2. Requesting a service to be completed on your account, and you pay the individual. In this instance, it does not matter whether you
    were paid first, or the individual pays you after the service is
    complete. Both parties receive a vouch.
    Similarly as stated above, if somebody completes a service for you free of charge, they are rewarded with a vouch because they were trusted on your account. You, however, do not receive a vouch, because you were not trusted with anything.

Membership

  • Only members with the Trusted or Highly Trusted badges may sell membership cards to other members of the forums. You can, however, still obtain a vouch if you purchase a membership card. In this instance, both parties receive vouches - You for the purchase, and the seller for the sale.
RS Names Sales

  • Runescape Name sales may ONLY BE MADE if you are selling ONLY the NAME. You may NOT sell the account, because only members with the Trusted or Highly Trusted badges may sell accounts on these forums. You can obtain vouches in this section of the Black Market by:

  1. Purchasing a Runescape Name for in-game or real life currency. In this instance, both parties will receive a vouch.
  2. Selling a Runescape Name for in-game or real life currency. In this instance, both parties will receive a vouch.

Guides

  • Members are permitted to buy and sell guides on these forums for in-game or real life currency. ***PLEASE NOTE*** You may only sell a guide for real life or in-game currency if it is verified by our guide verification team. For more information, click here. You can obtain vouches in this section of the Black Market by:

  1. Purchasing a guide for in-game or real life currency. In this instance, both parties will receive a vouch.
  2. Selling a guide for in-game or real life currency (only permitted if properly verified). In this instance, both parties will receive a vouch.

Real World Items


  • Some members have items, such as video games, trading cards, gift cards, etc. that they would like to trade for in-game currency. This is perfectly legal on these forums, and a transaction from this is vouch worthy. You can obtain vouches in this section of the Black Market by:

  1. Purchasing a real world item such as a gift card, video game, trading cards, etc. Please note that this requires you to release your personal information to another member of the forums, such as your name and address, so please deal with discretion. In this instance, both parties will receive a vouch.
  2. Selling a real world item such as a gift card, video game, trading cards, etc. In this instance, both parties will receive a vouch.

Accounts and Other Games

  • Only members with the Trusted and Highly Trusted badge may sell accounts on these forums. However, you can still earn a vouch if you purchase an account from a member with a Trusted or Highly Trusted badge. In this instance, both parties would receive a vouch.


Can I only earn vouches in the Black Market section of the forums?

  • Vouches are most commonly given in the Black Market section of the forums. However, there are a few instances where you can earn vouches outside of the Black Market. These include:

  1. Buying or Selling a graphic for in-game or real life currency. Please note that in order to obtain a vouch from purchasing a graphic, money must given to the seller in exchange for the graphic. In order to obtain a vouch from selling a graphic, money must be given to you from the buyer in exchange for the graphic.
  2. Investment banks (More information can be found here) is another great way to obtain vouches. If you meet the requirements to open up your own investment bank, you may receive vouches in return for your investors' money back. ***PLEASE NOTE*** If you invest in an investment bank, you will NOT receive a vouch, as you have not been trusted with anything.


This basically sums up the basic procedures and principles of vouches. If you feel that I left anything out, should add something, or should delete or modify something, please feel free to let me know, and I'd be glad to incorporate those changes.
