    Default Is selling ID illegal? (no account selling)

    So, some say now in ig that selling id is illegal now. Is it? And if it is, then being mid in id trade, would be illegal too, so what is punishment from these rule breaks then? And i speak only about name selling, not about account selling, those are 2 different things. I don't want spread false information so i kind of need know is this illegal or not. Rn ppl are super confused about this.

    Account ID is which you're account is attached to, nevertheless if you change your name or not the ID stays the same. Each and every account has a ID and that's how you're account is stored in the database and where all your history is stuck onto (ex punishments).

    Selling your name in the game isn't illegal although it's not suggested as you could easily get scammed with it.

    Selling an account is illegal, selling the ID isn't. However it's more of a do it in your own risk kinda thing, since the chances of getting scammed is higher since there is no guarantee the name will be traded over to the buyer after the in game currency transaction to buy the ID has taken place

    Pretty sure Neko said that selling accounts is not legal (and/or advertising of selling names in the forums is not allowed)

    I'm pretty sure selling names by advertising on forums is not allowed, but Nekorei being Nekorei saying that selling names is illegal is just strange

    Welp, selling and trading ID's is still legal, but when it comes to selling accounts, it's very much illegal. Normally you would have all your accounts banned if you are accused and caught doing so. So yea, it really isn't worth the risk, I tell ya.

    Trading Account Names through the use of Birth Certificates is 100% legal, just be careful, don't trust other players haphazardly.

    Trading accounts, however, the GrowID's, the things you log in as that have a password - trading those is very illegal and will result in a permanent suspension.



    Hope this clears up your confusion, closing this thread.
