Hello again, this time we'll be tackling the fine art of advertising over the server.
I'm sure most of you have seen large amounts of unrealistic/epically retarded adverts during your time online like..
Buying an eagle found in the desert.
Buying toy guns like AK-47 for my kids.
Selling [M]y [A]pple-scented [T]ruck eat.

Now, whenever somebody posts one of these - 100% of the server know what they are talking about!
When you're going to buy something of illegal nature, you should at least put in an acceptable amount of effort in hiding it!
Don't be surprised if the FBI or SASP come down on you, confiscate all the things you've worked hard for and jail you for a long time.

Now you don't want that, and adding a few lines of creativity and wit to your /adverts will give you a higher chance of avoiding that.
And if you're willing to go the extra mile for realism, DON'T post an advert at all.
NOBODY, I mean NOBODY posts advertisements that is viewable by the general public that exhibits illegal activity.
Anyway, that is too good to be true.. so at least post some decent ones.

Here, I'll be listing a few examples of good adverts regarding the illegal/legal trade, also buying/selling respectively.

Guns
Buying a licensed Desert Eagle/Shotgun. Bring the necessary papers and we'll straighten it out.((Buying))

Fantastic guide, Fleur!
Hopefully we'll see less "Buying an AK-47 toy gun" adverts now :)

Oh this is a guide.
Anyway, yea, this is awesome and so true. Anytime I see "[9] [M]agic [M]uffens I want to lure the person and kill them.
Also, I wish people would be more RP about selling stuff like that. I (before I became a legal guy) used do deals underneath bridges. You know what I want to see? Drug dealers on street corners. It would really give off the atmosphere of "You got the stuff? Yea it's right here." kinda deals. Where people would RP that this is actually a drug deal, not a car buying. They have to RP getting the bags/whatever out of their truck, in a secluded place. I mean, material deals right next to the Montgomery PD?! Maybe I should write a guide about where to do illegal deals...hmmm...

True, I wish the SASP and FBI would do active busts on these guys so they can learn from their mistakes RPly as well.

I'd like to see more of the idiot ads dealt with ICly and not by an admin, kick&ban doens't teach them the lesson, whereas a jail sentance, fine and confiscation of product would and they'd get the chance to RP with some players, giving them experience.
