Trade Posting Protocol

Post by recte44 » Mon Apr 23, 2012 9:25 am

Trade Post Protocol

- Format your subject header like this: "[team #1] and [team #2] Trade".
- The initial poster should include these details in the body of his post:
- Precisely what each team is receiving (first listing the trade partner's portion, then his own portion)
- The players involved, with their names linked to their player pages
- The abbreviated positions the players play (including separate designations for SP, MR and CL)
- The location of each involved player as of the start of the sim, including abbreviations for minor league levels, DFA and Disabled List (players on major league rosters do not require league level abbreviations)
- Any cash exchanging hands
- Maximum of five players per side
- The owner making the follow-up confirmation post should quote the initial post when giving his confirmation. This is to ensure that the first owner doesn't edit his post later on.
- You may include any "color commentary" you like in your posts as long as the first three criteria are met.

Posting tips

- List what each team receives rather than what they give. The creator of the post should start by listing what his trade partner is receiving before listing what he is receiving.
- When you're listing a player, do it in this format (without the brackets): [Position] [Hyperlinked Name] [(Level - DL - DFA)]. Example: RF José Maldonado (SS-A - DL). Do not hyperlink anything except the player names!
- Players should be listed in order of their league level, with highest league level players be listed first.
- Players should be listed first, followed by any cash that is changing hands.
- If a player is in the majors, you don't need to list his level.
- You can specify where to assign newly acquired players. Make sure you've cleared a space on the roster and in the position you wish the player to be placed.

Submit In-Game
Don't forget to submit your trade in-game. Both teams, when there are no international complex players involved. Instructions here if you need help.

Please review these requirements to post trades.

I need detail as this post clearly states.

I also need pre-sim instructions.

Just bumping again because people still aren't doing it right. Should look like:

SUBJECT: TEAM A(not person posting)/TEAM B(person posting) <--- this is the subject, not sure the order matters, but I have it there because the order does matter in the body of the trade post.


Body of Post:

TEAM A RECEIVES: <-- The poster should be listing what the OTHER team is RECEIVING first.

Pos player 1
Pos player 2 (level if not in majors, from highest to lowest) < --- players should be linked

TEAM B RECEIVES:

Pos player 3 (level if not in majors)
Pos player 4 (level if not in majors)
cash last

- List what each team receives rather than what they give. The creator of the post should start by listing what his trade partner is receiving before listing what he is receiving.
- When you're listing a player, do it in this format (without the brackets): [Position] [Hyperlinked Name] [(Level - DL - DFA)]. Example: RF José Maldonado (SS-A - DL). Do not hyperlink anything except the player names!
- Players should be listed in order of their league level, with highest league level players be listed first.
- Players should be listed first, followed by any cash that is changing hands.
- If a player is in the majors, you don't need to list his level.
- You can specify where to assign newly acquired players. Make sure you've cleared a space on the roster and in the position you wish the player to be placed.


The things consistently being messed up are stating you are sending players. This is wrong. It seems minor, but it gets annoying when trying to evaluate and process trades. It is what the team receives. The team order is less important to me. But for Recte, who is processing these, it would be nice if we could all do them the same way. That's why there is a format.

Question about making trades in game.... Do both teams have to do so or just one?
