Llama Trading Game

Suggested by Nichrysalis (and others) and written by bradleysays.

Did you know that you can trade points for Llamas? You can do this by using llamatrade - and here's how it works.

When you're on the llamatrade page, you will see the 'Make an Offer' widget, which is illustrated below.



Now, to fill in your offer information. :)

:points: per badge: this value is the number of points you are giving to the people that give you llamas via llamatrade. If you are unsure, most people stick with 1 point per llama.

Total :points:: this is the total number of points you are willing to give away via llamatrade. For example, if you are trading 1 point per llama, and set your "Total :points:" to 200, you will be able to receive 200 llamas before running out of points for that offer.

Type in your password and click the check box (once you've read the T&C ;p) and you're ready to 'Make an Offer'! Once you've clicked 'Make an Offer', deviants will be able to see your offer on the llamatrade page (illustrated below). :D



Now you know how to play the Llama Trading Game! :eager:

It don't work that way. You just wait for others to ask for llamas.

That will only show up on ~llamatrade when someone is offering a trade. :) If there's nothing there, then no one is currently trading. :D

Ugh, I feel I have to make it a point to say: The llama trading is a complete scam. Yes, you may be getting llamas for whatever money you are giving up, but it is money you are giving up for a fricken llama. And also, one point is worth about one cent, rounded. So. Fuck all your llama trading. I am very against any sort of llama trading, especially with points.

Well, that way people give us a lot of points.. I won't complain for that. With points of llamatrades I was able to commission a lot of thigs and buy adoptables.

I can understand that..
but can't you say that about dA membership as well?
Paying for something virtual, whether a llama or not?
Not really something you can put in your pocket..

Heh, well perhaps. But when buying a membership, you are getting services. You can't say that about a freaking llama :B

It's not for everyone - I personally wouldn't offer points for llama's but have given llama's for points... each their own :)

Yeah, to each their own I guess. It just seems like a very shady kind of market, which I want no part of.

It is. Uncheck downloads and the file would be HTML most likely.

Make sure premium content and free is off.

Check ~llamatrade regularly. If there are any offers, they'll be on that page. There aren't always offers simply because deviants aren't always trading. :aww:

Yeah, you really gotta stay on it otherwise you miss it! There's also a little thing on the bottom right corner of your badges page, so I check it once a day to see if there's anything new. :D
