3. State the item's name in the title
4. Once you've created a post, see if you qualify for flair
5. Please use link flair to cross out your post once it is fulfilled.
- Click 'flair' below your post, select the '- ~~REQUEST~~' option, then press 'Save'.
Do not delete your posts or comments for any reason.^1
No money changing hands. No fundraising, loans, buying, selling or paying back later. This includes any links to fundraisers, and Amazon cards (wishlists are OK).
No advertising, trading, or referral links.
No voting requests This includes contests and sites whose content is based on votes.
Do not request items with the intent to trade or sell them.^1
Video game related requests and entries to related offers require 300 comment karma and a 2 month old account. An exception to this is if you have 'Sent' flair. No /r/FreeKarma.
You must post your Steam Profile ID if your request is Steam related. (e.g. steamcommunity.com/id/johnsmith)
No requests for Steam gift cards.
No Flaming, insults, derogatory comments and otherwise rude behavior. If you see a post that is inflammatory please use report function to notify a mod.^1
No mature (18+) or illegal requests.
Most posts for new accounts aren't allowed. Message Mods for details.
Breaking the above rules may result in a temporary or permanent^1 ban.
Stay safe. Only give personal information such as address away in PM.
Use the search function. Many requests and offers have been made. People may still be willing to offer kindness even if their post is old.
Keep your post updated. Make sure you update the post so others know if your request was fulfilled or the offer was given away.
Remember to thank the giver. They love to know that an item was received and it is always nice to thank the person who sent you something.
Try to give as good as you get. Balance the number of REQUESTs you make with an equal number of OFFERs. Members will respect you more and won't think you're taking advantage of them. Heavily taking advantage may earn post removal or bans. Wait 1 month between requests unless you are following the above.
Always pay it forward! Continue the cycle of kindness by passing on the kindness offered to you in any way you can.
