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.

Was the bolded part intended for this league?

Nope, thanks!

Please review these requirements to post trades.

I need detail as this post clearly states.

I also need pre-sim instructions.
