Hi I'm still new to Serebii and I wanted to make a shop here for trading purposes instead of linking the one I have in other site and was wondering if it's okay to post the questions here.

1. I've read that shops need to be approved first. How does that happen? Mods when they have the time look at the thread I made?
2. Is it okay to reserved the first 5-6 posts for my shop since I have a lot to offer? (Example first post is greetings, second are events, third are shiny's and so forth)
3. Are moving sprite images like this http://sprites.kraftpaper.org/s/484.gif fine to use? (Since I don't see that many in the shops I've seen so far)
4. Is holding a raffle okay?

1. I've read that shops need to be approved first. How does that happen? Mods when they have the time look at the thread I made?Yep, there's nothing else to it lol. I'm guessing you saw the announcement in the 5th gen. trade shop forum? :P


2. Is it okay to reserved the first 5-6 posts for my shop since I have a lot to offer? (Example first post is greetings, second are events, third are shiny's and so forth)Have you tried fitting everything you need to include in your first post first, though? If you think it will be confusing to have so much content in one post, maybe you can try seperating/labeling the different parts of your posts neatly.


3. Are moving sprite images like this http://sprites.kraftpaper.org/s/484.gif fine to use? (Since I don't see that many in the shops I've seen so far)I don't see why not, as long as there is a purpose to you using it. :P The only times I can remember where members have gotten in trouble for using sprites/images was when they were just trolling, and when they put them in their signatures without giving credit to whoever made them.


4. Is holding a raffle okay?As long as your method follows the rule below, I would guess so lol.


9. No game-type threads to win prizes of Pokemon. If you want to give away Pokemon, you may freely give them away, but you cannot have any quizzes or other similar procedures.

Basically, if your proposed trade shop follows all the rules of that forum (and the general Sppf rules (http://serebiiforums.com/showthread.php?t=397567)), it's okay to post it.

Yea I tried that in another forum and made me dizzy lol. Plus having it in seperate posts make them make more distinct.

Yea it's basically a giveaway...with a catch to make it more interesting :)
