The Vouching System
The Vouch System is a community driven program based on accountability, creating a level of insurance for the community of players that interact through trades involving players or coins in the Madden games and MHCs on Muthead.
The Vouch System is designed to be the last resort of resolution for victims of a scam by reimbursing the loss of value through the scammer’s vouchers. The transparency of how much is vouched for and by who is a method of recognizing trade partners with added insurance if safe trading practices fail or are neglected. It is important to understand that the Vouch System is a LAST RESORT. Safe trading practices such as utilizing a Trusted Middleman and researching your trade partner’s history and legitimacy should be prioritized. The Vouch System will NOT reimburse a victim unless a Mod tags a user with a Scammer Tag. Loans, bets, wagers, etc. are NOT covered by the Vouch System.
In order to be reimbursed for a scam, the scammer must have a Vouch Thread. It is their personal thread in the Member Reputation forum that others may post on to vouch an amount of MHCs. The total amount of MHCs vouched for an individual is the maximum amount of MHCs that can be reimbursed. The maximum amount of MHCs that an individual can be vouched for is 50 MHCs.
Members who have been active for over 3 months or have 100+ posts may vouch up to 5 MHCs.
Members who are ELITE or above may vouch up to 10 MHCs.
Any vouches made by someone who is ineligible or for an ineligible amount will not be counted.
Each member is responsible for their own Vouch Threads. It is expected to maintain a “Total Vouched Amount” and a list of their Vouchers on Post #1 by making necessary edits.
Members who have vouched for someone else will be held accountable for their vouched amount at most if that person were to scam. The full vouched amount or calculated fraction will be collected and sent to the victim as reimbursement. By vouching, you are publicly stating your trust in an individual. If that individual scams, you are responsible because your public vouch served as an endorsement for the legitimacy of the scammer. Be very careful of who you vouch for, for any amount.
Vouch Threads will only last up to ONE year. As each new Madden is released, a new Vouch Thread must be created for that year. This is to eliminate old vouches and inactive members that may have forgotten or quit, allowing victims to have the best chances to be reimbursed. Vouches do NOT carry over from the previous system or year to year.
Madden Middle Men
The Vouching System is a LAST RESORT. Safe trading practices such as utilizing a Trusted Middleman and researching your trade partner’s history and legitimacy should be prioritized. These lists are combined efforts from some of the most trusted people in the Muthead community with years of experience trading in all types of systems that EA has/had implemented since MUT's creation. Here you can find a list of TMM members to help you facilitate MHC trades, multiple card trades, cross console trades, multi-game trades, and much more.
Muthead, the staff, and the mods are NOT responsible for the contents of this system. TruePanda takes FULL responsibility regarding the system, it’s maintenance, and circumstances. Do NOT under ANY circumstance, message the mods, Rocketz, or anyone other than TruePanda regarding the Vouch System.
Failure to pay the vouched amount in the event of a scam will result your name being placed on the Blacklist. Being placed on this list is to publicly announce that you have a balance owed to a victim because you endorsed a scammer and could not fulfill your promise.
NOTE: I will NEVER approach you or discuss deals through Xbox/PSN/Twitter/etc. All deals are initiated and documented through MH chat. Please do not deal with anyone claiming to be CPAgamer1 via any means other than direct MH chat. Always confirm via MH chat if you are contacted outside of MH by anyone claiming to be CPAgamer1.
