As you all know, DoA hosts one of the largest second-hand marketplaces for ball-jointed dolls and accessories. Because of this, our community is occasionally a target for dishonest people who see an opportunity to scam or defraud our members. This is a source of great stress to our staff (and no doubt our community) and we have taken as many steps as possible to provide the safest experience possible while keeping the Marketplaces fee-free and accessible to members from all over the world. One of our greatest frustrations is being unable to make information about fraudulent transactions public due to the wording of our Terms of Service. Effective immediately, we are updating our ToS. Please reference following post for the changes. (The changes are in bold red.) What does this mean? If you use the forum to engage in a fraudulent transaction, the forum staff reserves the right to post information such as your IP address, email address, and private information that you have furnished to the other party in your transaction. This information may include your Paypal address, country and city of residence [not full address], and other known internet alias(es). We may also furnish this information to other BJD forums so that they may protect their marketplaces as well. Obviously, this is for extreme cases only where we have concerns that a user is systematically scamming our community; a flakey transaction, item damaged or delayed in shipping, or item not exactly as described would not warrant this response. However, if we become aware of a user who is selling counterfeit items as the real thing, accepting payment for items that don't exist, or accepting customization commissions as a means of stealing items, we may choose to make this information public after a thorough investigation. It's a big change, and one that we wish that we didn't have to make. If this is not acceptable to you, then you may not use our Marketplaces. By using the forum to conduct transactions, you are agreeing to this policy. As we said, this is effective immediately. If you do not wish to use our Marketplaces in light of this ToS change, please post in Ask the Moderators to ask the staff to remove your Marketplace-related threads. if you have any questions about this, please feel free to ask in this thread.
