Hi all. I want to give hopefuls an opportunity to ask questions and or for guidance on their Official Middleman application. We ask that only OMM's and staff respond to the inquiries posted here, in order to ensure that users get accurate responses. So, if you have any questions about middlemanning, the benefits of being an Official Middleman, or are unsure about the application process, etc., feel free to post them. While most questions will simply be answered in the thread, we will address some of the more common issues below. F.A.Q. Q. How are trades valued? A. Trades are valued at the worth of the transaction. If the trade is RSGP for an account/item, the trade is valued at $X for every YM RS3/Rs07 GP(check HERE for rates.) Q. What if I hold both sides of the trade? A. Doesn't matter. By convention, trades are always counted as the larger half of the transaction (even if you don't handle the larger half!). Q. I MM'ed an RS account for another RS account. How do I value this? A. Trades that have no clear, objective value typically fall under the "anything up to $50" requirement. However, in the case of RS account trades, you can substitute the wealth on the accounts for the value. Ie, if one of the accounts has 200m gp on it, it counts as a $67 trade. Q. I received the seller's end of the trade, but then the buyer backed out. Since I was still trusted with "x" amount, can I use this trade for my application? A. Unfortunately, incomplete trades open up too much room for abuse. So, only complete, successful trades may be used for the application. Q. The users wanted to do the trade in increments so even though the overall trade was 1000M RS3 GP for $500, we traded 200M for $100 five times. How is this valued as a proof? A. For this type of scenario, the proof would only be considered a $100 proof because that is the most you were trusted with at one time. Q. I missed a screenshot of (insert requirement here), but I have everything else. Can I still use the trade for my application? What if my screenshot link is no longer working? A. This is generally dealt with on a case-by-case basis, so you should contact the Head OMM to find out whether that trade is still acceptable. Keep in mind that your application will be weaker if you're missing one of the required screenshots for too many trades.
