I will start by saying this thread is not being opened for anyone to point fingers or name names. If anyone does, their post will be deleted.
Trading in Imagine Town is set up so that when you request a trade with someone and they accept, they have the option to put in the item they wish to trade in return. If they do not put in the item they promised, you have the option of declining the trade. If you choose to accept the trade, or if you gift the item, you are accepting the possibility you will not get anything in return. You are GIVING them the item. Questions and discussions on this topic are ok here, but as I stated before any posts accusing anyone of stealing will be deleted.

Yeah, I've been hearing A LOT about that. If you're not completely sure you can trust the person, as in you don't actually know them in real life, then you're setting yourself up for them to take it with nothing in return.

Janie, you are right but when you dont want to trade because it cost then we have to gift! So far i been gifting and getting things back, like if i gift a dress i get one back and the person promises to do that!

It's a very good thing that you made this topic! What if you trade dresses but then they make you give it back? I don't think it's very fair...

Well, since the dresses cost a lot, nobody does the regular trading option anymore. We do GIFT trade instead where you give your dress and the other person gives their dress and then you trade. And sometimes that plan isn't completley fullproof, since the other person might not give theirs and you already gave yours, hence the term dress stealing.

I understand that it feels like stealing when some one does that to you. We would like to be able to take everyone's word for it when they say they will give something in return. Unfortunately when you give someone something as a gift and they give nothing in return, there is nothing any of us mods can really do about it. The best thing is to only trade, or don't give anything as a gift if you're not ok with losing it and getting nothing in return.

While it does cost gems to trade, no one actually receives those gems. The person who started the trade will either get fame or another item as their reward for the item they are trading.

Well, Thanks for telling us because I got really frustrated when I thought I would get 15 gems but instead I got nothing and lost a piece of clothing!

I always found it helpful if the person with the lesser fame sends first as the higher the fame, the more deals you've done. I find that can help lessen the amount of people who try to steal.

This has happened to me and I truly do not think that it is fair I think that the rule should be that once you trade something you can't get it back

The only way they're going to get the item back is if you give it back. Remember you always have a choice! No one can force you to do anything you don't want to! This goes for more than just giving gifts. If someone is harrassing you, you can always click on them to ignore them.

Yes this is a valid point! I feel that this should be ruled against or moderators should set up an icon like Gift Trade or something! I have never witnessed this happening and I hope this will stay this way! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

I don't really think you should have to pay for an item if it's trading. I mean, what if you don't have any gems and you want to trade something? Then you have to wait until tomorrow or the next time that you're on to trade, and the person you want to trade with might not be online that day. I think trading should be free.

I always find it kind of silly myself that you have to trade money when trading actual items. It'd be neat if you could set a price and the person trading could then type the amount themselves or something rather than being forced to pay a certain amount.

Yeah! I think it's so dumb for us to have to have, like 100 gems just to trade dresses! It would be great for us to have FREE trade!

We appreciate the feedback on this and are looking for ways to make trade better. In the mean time, I think the point is just to be very careful what you gift or trade and understand that clicking to accept the trade or give the gift is agreeing to it. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I have heard and (not gonna say who) that there is someone who makes you gift first but doesn't give you a dress in return. Personalty I don't like to trade with people I have never met in the game. People who are not on my friend list.But that's only me, but if they trade with someone else and they both got their dresses I would probably take a chance of trading with them.

No, I'm not even sure that's possible to do that. People will trade their dresses with other people but they would gift them to each other so one would gift a dress and the other person would take that dress and leave http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif

To those that have been posting reports on this thread:

Please remember that this is not a place to report people for "stealing" dresses. If you find someone who is "stealing" dresses, please just spread the word that people should not gift or trade with that person. Do not try to start a fight, do not report them to the mods, do not say anything rude or mean to them. All of this could get you in trouble. When you report it to a moderator, we cannot really do anything about it. We cannot get the dress back from the person. In reality, you did GIVE the dress to the person in the first place. They did not steal it. They just did not give anything in return. So, please be careful who you trade/gift with. In fact, you probably shouldn't do it at all if it is going to cause a mess like this.

beyoncu34: when you are trading to other people and you did the thing by your own or someone else did it when you will get fame poins because someone made it. the other peson will lose the gems when it cost!! but you are getting fame poins because when everyone will trade to much but trade fame poins are good for you.
