Question Regarding Account Selling

:iconsweetens:
Sweetens Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2012
So I came across an account that someone was selling on DA for points since they no longer use it. It has a 6MO premium member ship and it's around 2 years old with 900+ watchers.

Now I was warned by a friend that DA freezes sold accounts if they catch wind of it so before I actually do buy it I just wanna know if it's allowed or not. If it isn't I'm going to have to back out as I don't want to be frozen.

Just reading the words DA for points makes slap my face. If they were leaving DA, why would they buy it with points for one thing. Wouldn't you buy it for money. I mean if the person was leaving DA, why are they asking points for it?

No.
I backed out of the offer.

I like my account and I don't want it frozen.

Moderators please lock this topic.
I have received the answer I was looking for and therefore this board is no longer needed. -- Thank you.

Since under the ToS the user agrees to not share their password with anyone and to provide accurate and true registration information at all times, transferring accounts is in violation of the ToS. Whether dA will overlook it or ban your ass is entirely at their discretion.

Then the best thing for me to do is to walk away from the account then and not purchase it. :3 Thank you for your help.

I don't see the point even if its allowed. They watched that person for the artwork THEY made, it's not like the 900 watchers will do you any good. Work on your art instead.

I'm not interested in the watchers.
I'm interested in the age of the account.

I'm fully aware that if I buy it that the watchers will change because I'm not the original artist.

What's age got to do with it? It's just another number ticker on the profile page. There is no automatic prestige gained by having been some place longer. It's all about what you make, how you contribute and the relationships you have with others.

I don't need you to explain that to me. If I wanted that specific type of advice I would have asked for it in my main post. I have more then enough of a name for myself here on this account.

As I stated it was more of a personal preference then anything and has nothing to do with the quality of art produced or the amount of watchers.

My question has already been answered by someone else. I'll be requesting this thread be closed by an admin.

I was just thinking of saving you points and/or money.

Sorry if I responded harshly, I totally misinterpreted your entire post because I read it wrong. I appreciate the help, and I did back out of the offer. I'd rather not risk the account I have over something that wouldn't make a difference anyways.

Thank you for making me see that <3

I'm truly curious now. What is it about the age of the account that makes it so attractive to you?

I've been around DA for several years previously but at the time I was an idiot and didn't know I could change my user name. So I deactivated and abandoned my old accounts (I have a name thing xD I don't like the names I had as a kid) a long time ago before DA implemented the name change feature to members. I'd love to have an older account again. I guess it's just a quirk of mine preferring older accounts to newer ones but I suppose there's really no difference and it's more of a personal preference as opposed to anything else.

So the only thing I want to know is if selling an account for DA currency is allowed or not, that's all. I don't want to go break DA rules and risk losing my account (and possibly the new one) if selling is against DA rules.

Oh I see. Um, well, I'm still not sure if it's allowed or not, you might want to ask helpdesk. BUt as long as both parties are fine with the transaction, I don't see why not.

I decided against it.
I don't want to risk having my account frozen, especially when I have so much going on, on this account anyways. To lose it all wouldn't be worth the risk.

Smart choice. I know we have our quirks, but I really didn't think this was worth it. Farming Runescape accounts, on the other hand... Used to do that so much! Haha.
