There seems to be a lot of people being shady over trading family adds etc for Famp runs. I realize everyone runs their family different, and that is fine. So there is no confusion on how I do it and what I expect I am writing this blog.
Let me get a couple terms cleared up first.....
/ˈpɜrmənənt/ Show Spelled[pur-muh-nuhnt] Show IPA
existing perpetually; everlasting, esp. without significant change.
intended to exist or function for a long, indefinite period without regard to unforeseeable conditions: a permanent employee; the permanent headquarters of the United Nations.
long-lasting or nonfading: permanent pleating; permanent ink.
1. illegitimate. underhanded. dishonorable. corrupt. sneaky.
2. A shady person is someone who does not keep it real; a person who hides out; a person who keeps things to themselves.
My family consists of... REAL friends... Permanent family trade... and Temporary family trades. I make it very clear what you are when added.
1. Real Friends... This is pretty self explanatory, I believe. They are in my family because they are my friends.
2. Permanent family trades... We have agreed to keep each other in our families PERMANENTLY*. I don't or SHOULDN'T have to check to see if I am in your family before I run something. You are in mine regardless. I'm not worried if you run something everyday - because you run an amp or god bling most days of the week. If you aren't going to be online or aren't going to run something for awhile, you let me know. In most cases, it doesn't matter, cause our agreement is PERMANENT Family add. I expect the same in return.
3. Temporary family add.... These adds usually are for one amp run or a certain amount of time... ie., a weekend etc. Usually if someone sends me the amp, buys my points and rates or whatever offer I have posted at the time. You will be removed after our agreed upon deal is over.
How I do family trades...
Usually if you just want to straight rates trade... you in my family, me in yours... I will ask you to add my hubby too. No, he will probably not add you as his family as his is full most of the time. You want my rates, then this is my deal. Yes, I like rates. But if you haven't noticed, I'm not really in the rates race like I was. I help my hubby - and this is one way I do it. If we make this deal and I check your family at any time and see he is removed, then you have broken our agreement and I will remove you.
If my status says something like... "send me a famp and get added to fam for famp run". It is exactly that - you get in my family while I run my next famp. Even if the famp I run is from someone else. You have "paid" for one famp run in my family. I am not expecting to be added to yours.
I will at times have an open spot in my family when I run something. I will either give it to someone that has me in theirs and has ran an amp or God mode giving me some rates or I will offer it to a random person... ie., status will say something like... " First person with no VIP and no ability bling to shout me get in fam for famp run". This add is for the famp run that is active.
What I expect....
If we have a permanent family add - I don't believe I should have to check on you before I run something. I expect that I am in your family until you have told me otherwise. As you will be in mine until I tell you. Simple
If our agreement is that you have added my hubby as well to be in my family, I expect that you keep him in as well. If you remove either one of us, then I expect that you contact me to let me know.
Removing someone from your family without letting them know so you can take their rates while you aren't giving them yours is just plain shady to me. I will not be shady with anyone and I expect the same in return. I keep my deals with people. If you get caught, as several have, I will remove you.. add you to my bitch files if possible, and you will not be allowed back in my family at any point.
I have been here over 4 years... I'm very well known. If I was shady at all, in anyway, it would be known. Trust me, people would LOVE to bust me on some bullshit. You don't hear bullshit about me, because that just isnt who I am. I help who I can when I can. I keep my word to people. I expect the same.
I'm NOT promising I will run something everyday. I have been lately, but that isn't a promise. I do plan on running something most days of the week. If a point comes where I dont foresee me running anything for awhile - I will make that known to all.
Personally, I don't believe it is the best deal for me, unless I'm not going to be around. It lasts about 30 hours for me. During which time I cant "like" anyone, polish anyone's bling etc. Rates don't reset except with a new day. I get more rates from running a famp/boomerang. If I run a famp/boomerang in the evening - then my rates have reset and I end up getting more rates then if I ahve ran a God mode all day. For some people a God bling is the better bet. It isn't for me, if I am going to be around. Some people are all about God bling fam trades. That's fine. But I think you need to weigh who it is and if it is going to work out best.
I hope this clears up what I expect and how I run MY family.
Thank you so much,
PS - Being shady or pulling some bullshit on my hubby, is just like doing it to me. We are very easy to get along with people. (Granted he is nicer than I am.) If you have to remove one of us or both, simply let us know. If you try to be slick and remove one of us or both, still take our rates while not sharing yours... we will find out.
Just for those of you that dont know... the "See Who Has Me In Their Family" page lists people by who has added you most recently. This is how most of you shady mofo's are getting caught.
