Forced Trade Backs:

This is where one party forces the other to undo the sale. Either by threatening a payment chargeback or recovering the account.

First Violation - 5 infraction points
Second Violation - Account permanently banned

✅ Leveling/Boosting Terms:

Power Leveling and Boosting services must clearly state the terms of their service so there is no confusion as to what the buyer is purchasing. The following information is REQUIRED in all Leveling and Boosting service threads where the provider requires login information to the customers account.

  • Leveling is done by (automated bot or by hand)
    • If leveling is done using an exploit or some abuse of the normal game system, this must also be disclosed.
  • The person leveling your account must state the country from where he will be doing it.
  • If the account gets banned during the leveling/boosting, the seller must clearly indicate the kind of compensation that will be given to the buyer.

✅ Private Server Account Sales:

Since private servers have different rules about account recalls and recovery, and there are many different private servers for each game, the following rules must be followed by the seller when selling an account from a private server.

  • The seller must clearly state to the buyer the account recovery procedure before payment.
  • The seller must include whether or not account recovery is possible and what info is required in an account recovery.

✅ Thread Sale Guidelines & Requirements:

In order to provide a better user experience, OwnedCore requires all members to follow these guidelines and rules when creating a sale or trade thread.

  • No unsupported superlative or competitive claims. This includes claims like "best, "cheapest", "fastest", "number #1 " or any other claim that can't be proven. This is related to seller claims, not the game. For example "hunter class is the best DPS" is not against the rules.
  • Item description and payment method are required in all threads. Price is required if you link to an outside website. If there's no link, then you can say "price is negotiable" or "contact me for price information".
    • If the user has to click a link to another website to see item description, payment methods or price, it will be considered spam and removed.
  • Full account disclosure: The seller must state to the buyer before payment whether or not the account has ever been recalled, hacked, stolen or has received violation warnings. For some games, the seller must also disclose whether or not any payment transactions (buying in-game items) have occurred on the account.
    • Botted accounts: If the account was created/leveled using a bot, this must also be disclosed. This means the account was botted from level 1 to the max level. This does not include legit accounts that at one time or another used a bot.
    • Seller must disclose if they are the original owner of the account.
    • Anything vitally important about the account must be disclosed to the buyer before payment.
  • Discounts & Sales: If you are providing some sort of discount or sale (example: 50% off) you have to prove the discount is real. Normal prices must be included in your thread.
    • If the discounts are permanent, then they are not real discounts, they are the normal price and can't be claimed as a "Sale" or "Discounted" price. This would be considered a fake discount and not allowed.
      • Example: "50% off everything" If the discount is never removed, then it's not a discount it's the normal price.
      • If you add "50% off everything until June 30, 2020" Then that would be okay because the sale would end. The normal price would then be used.
    • Permanent discounts are allowed for some types. Bulk orders, price limits, repeat customers and discount codes.
      • Example. Buy 1 item for $1. Buy 10 items for $8 (20% off). This is a permanent discount for bulk orders and would be allowed.
      • Example: Spend $50 or more and get 10% off.
      • Example: Receive a 20% discount code when you purchase again.
      • Example: Use code "DISCOUNT10" to get 10% off.
  • Top Up Services - Prices MUST be included for all top up service threads.

✅ Right to Know Methods:

OwnedCore reserves the right to know a seller's methods for anything being sold or linked to on OwnedCore. This includes how they obtain accounts or items, how their services are conducted, payment methods and processing and anything else related to the item or service listed.

  • Sellers will be required to provide a detailed explanation of their methods so that OwnedCore can replicate it.
  • If requested, sellers can be asked for video evidence as proof to show their explanation is legitimate.
  • Sellers who refuse will have their threads removed or will be banned.
    • Bans are reserved only for members that are suspected of illegal activity.

Only OwnedCore Admins have the right to make these requests, members do not need to provide this information to Moderators or Super Moderators.


✅ Feedback System:

  • Feedback can only be given if a sale has began. This means either payment was made or the item was given.
  • No free items, services or accounts in exchange for feedback.
  • If a sale occurred, the seller can offer some sort of minor discount or reward to incentivize the customer to give feedback.
  • You may NOT post feedback on behalf of any user. Doing so puts your own OwnedCore status at risk and may cause a permanent account closure.
  • Grief or revenge feedbacks are not permitted.
  • Disregarding these rules may lead to account suspension and/or permanent account closure.

Feedback Removal/Change Rules:

  • If a dispute is opened and resolved, the negative feedback will be changed to neutral and the comment will be updated to reflect the issue has been resolved.
  • Feedback based on rudeness or slow service (non-extreme) can only be neutral, not negative.
  • Feedback can only be removed if it's false.
  • If you believe feedback is false, you can open a dispute thread.
    • False feedback must been reported within 30 days

✅ Editing/Deleting Posts & Accounts:

OwnedCore will not delete or remove a post once it has been made. If you mistakenly posted sensitive information like your real name, phone number, your character's username or other information that can get you banned, you can contact a moderator to get that info removed, but again the post will remain. As a general rule of thumb, do not post something on the internet you don't want there forever.

  • We do not delete posts or threads
  • We do not delete accounts.
  • Members can request to have their account closed

⚠️ The Fine Print:

We can't write a rule for every possible scenario or dispute that arises. Because of this OwnedCore moderators and administrators reserve the right to make decisions on a case by case basis when no rule for the situation exists.

  • We reserve the right to modify and amend these terms at any time without notice.
  • It is your responsibility to remain informed of current policies.
  • We reserve our right to disable any account at any time for any reason and without notice.
  • Any abuse towards our staff and/or management in any form will not be tolerated!
  • If administrators/moderators should engage in buying/selling/trading/leveling accounts - they act as a personal entity and not as a representative of OwnedCore.
