I know, personally, that there's a lot of people in f2p who would love to see a DECENT flipping friends chat out there. Why not make this fc f2p AND p2p. just one "set" of f2p items flipping would be a big difference for the f2p community.
Thanks a lot,

One reason why we don't accommodate F2P is because there are not a lot of items that F2P can flip other than rares. Corrupt items and clue scroll rewards are pretty much everything, as 3rd age is much more expensive. 

Also, with the introduction of bonds, becoming a Member is no longer a case of lack of IRL money, but lack of in game money. If they don't have enough to get a bond, there is a high probability that they don't have enough to flip our items and contribute to the chat.

Also, the chat as it stands has no items to accommodate F2P, this has and most likely will always be the case. If they can't flip the items, they are not allowed in the chat, since we do run off of updates. 

Having said this, I recognise that it is a community chat, and therefore I PERSONALLY allow F2P when the chat is not full. But I am one of only a few to do this.

Hope this helps Smile

Thanks, I understand your arguments.
But I don't agree with this: there's more items f2p can flip, just it's like mass flipping. Think about logs, runes, ores etc.
Ofcourse, this chat is not made for mass flipping so I do get that you instantly refer to the rares.
By the way, bonds are easy to get. But the problem is: how to make that money back as quick as possible? My answer is flipping AND doing a lot of skills, but if f2p doesn't get introduced to flipping at all we'll end up having no more interest in flipping as most of the irl money paying membs will soon have so much money that they will just stick to daily challenges, boss runs etc.
If we would have a constant flow of f2p players (like myself atm) who know exactly what flipping is and that you shouldn't panic etc. the community of flipchat1 would keep on growing.
This is just my opinion Razz

Runes logs etc all these 10/4k items do not work unless you are solo flipping.

Says there are 80 people in fc 25 are F2P. 25 People flipping runes/logs/ores cutting each others margins ( don't say that won't happen it will as it always has) 

The idea of the chat is to flip items you can't test margins on yourself such as 1/4 and 2/4 It is literally pointless using  a flipping chat if you can price check the item yourself as announcing a 10/4 margin in a chat such as ours = It is instantly cut = Profit gone image a small item Air rune say 15-20 gp ( Won't happen i know:P) 25k/4 that margin will be 15-15 instantly in our chat.

The only F2P is rares/clue items as Timsaid and most are more than 1/4 the chat will probably never accommodate f2p items as it simply wouldn't work and create alot of people getting mad at bad margins.

Also if a bond is 6m you can make 6m a day Easily.
