    It's prohibited.

    Most of the other games have a rule against Real Money transactions, so it was easier to issue a blanket rule instead of trying to make an exception for UO - especially when many of the online sites that sell UO stuff also offer things illegally for other games. It would be bad form to allow such a site to link off a UO Stratics post, then have some other company's rep follow the link and find stuff for their game(s).

    Sorry to hear about your bad fortune IRL, seems to be a common theme these days. While it is prohibited to do so on stratics, there are some websites that do offer auction of virtual items for real money services. Although as mentioned it is prohibited to mention their website address, maybe someone associated with one of these sites can help you out.

    Hope things turn around soon....even if you do fight against us.

    Sorry to hear, but:

    So is linking to sites promoting such sales.
     
  5. But you CAN advertise items here for in-game gold. You then figure out what to do with that somewhat more liquid gold.

    Well, not here... in the proper selling forums on Stratics.
