Have you ever wondered how MorphMarket moderates our site and mediates disputes? And how does our effort stack up against other services? This is something we care deeply about and put many hours into every week.

To increase transparency, we've just published an article on our Market Moderation Policies which gives a brief but thorough overview. It describes our handling and resolution of a wide variety of issues involving users, ads, ratings, transactions, and more. It explains what we do and what we do not do. We believe this information is helpful for understanding your rights and obligations on our site.

This article is part of our growing set of resources in our Learning Center.

USARK Alert Updates

MorphMarket is proud to be a Gold Member of the US Association of Reptile Keepers because they advocate for our freedom to responsibly keep Reptiles & Amphibians. Not only does this organization need your financial support, but also your name. Its membership count reflects its significance to outsiders in the same way the count of signatures on a petition reflects its level of support. Let policymakers count you among those who stand with USARK.

To raise awareness about USARK and amplify its voice, MorphMarket will now be syndicating its official alerts to a new category in our community forums and to our home page.

On the home page, these alerts will show up under the Community section with an official USARK badge as shown in the picture, where they will remain for seven days, while the other topics remain only for a few days.

You can learn more about USARK and become a member at their website. There you can also subscribe for email updates or via their RSS feed.

Advertising is expensive, but with the MorphMarket Reptile Community (MRC) we have created a new opportunity for you to expand your brand name for free.
