TCGplayer Community Guidelines

Welcome to TCGplayer! We think you’re going to like it here. We’d love to have you join our gaming community, but first you need to promise to follow a few rulesthis is kindergarten-level stuff, man!

Motivate Your Peers

Everything you say and do on and its related social media groups should be done with this in mind. If it’s not nice, don’t say it. If it’s not yours, don’t touch it. Don’t lie, steal, cheat or harass people because none of that is cool. Instead, be a beacon of shining light. Be the best gamer you can be, and challenge others to elevate their game, too! Put simply, treat others as YOU would want to be treated.

A Quest for Knowledge

There is a ton of information out there about Magic and games in general. Share it! Learn from it! Read and write about it, watch videos, absorb everything you can like a sponge and share all that you knowbut be respectful. Link back to (or at least cite) any articles or information you quote from TCGplayer writers. Don’t abuse our pricing information by using a site scraper, code, script or other way of repeatedly taking shots at our servers. Respect the information and it will always flow freely. Try to corrupt it or use it for your own profit and use, and we’ll frown at you. Hard.

Go Beyond

TCGplayer wants to provide the best possible customer experience—always. From time to time, we may change things on our website, update rules and content, add new promotions, prizes and giveaways, add or remove features or tinker with the product lines we carry. We’ll try to announce these changes in advance when we can or at least make it clear what’s new, but we also depend on feedback from you guys and gals and gamers. If something doesn’t seem right, let us know! If there is a feature you want to see added (or brought back), tell us! If a Seller gives you amazing service, use our feedback system to let THEM know! Providing good feedback helps both Buyers and Sellers enjoy the experience of using TCGplayer, so don’t be shy.

Inspired by Passion

You love gaming. We love gaming. Everybody loves gaming! But sometimes, people will disagree about it. Maybe you’re upset about a package not arriving, maybe a card showed up bent, whatever—be calm. Be cool. Don’t let your temper get the best of you, and don’t direct your passion at someone in a negative way. Make good language choices when communicating through messages and message boards on TCGplayer. We don’t allow words you wouldn’t say in front of your grandma, so keep a lid on them. Pretty please. With sugar on top.

Community for All

At TCGplayer, we believe gaming is a community for all. Let that sink in for a second. We don’t discriminate based on age, gender, appearance, beliefs, religion, nationality, color, creed, orientation or who you were friends with in high school. Remember, you can only be a great gamer if you have people to play with, so don’t exclude, hate on, dismiss or belittle someone for their differences. If you can’t tolerate everyone being part of this community, then the only person who will be asked to leave is you.
