Tophatter is a community of buyers and sellers who enjoy connecting in a fun environment.  We're a place for real people to interact and for serious commerce to occur.  We invite sellers to join our forum and have fun, but we do have a few rules - as few as possible.

1. Be honest

Don't misrepresent yourself or act untruthful about your identity, affiliations, or age. Don't misrepresent items for sale, don't bid if you don't intend to pay and don't set minimum bids you won't honor.

2. Don't be hurtful

We won't tolerate adult language or content that is intended to hurt other people. It's easy to forget that there are real people behind each username. Always refrain from personal attacks. Remember the golden rule. 

3. Be appropriate & constructive

There will be differences of opinion from and among the community, but please voice yours constructively and in the right venue.

We understand that not all proposed and executed changes and updates to the platform will be accepted positively at the outset. Questions and further discussion can often be helpful. Constructive criticism is welcomed and suggestions from the community will be considered, but please avoid expressing general discontent and negativity.

4. Have fun

Tophatter is intended to be a fun place for sellers, buyers and spectators one and all! We love to watch exciting auctions, see sellers building their businesses and hear from happy buyers discovering and shopping for great items. We encourage you to participate on the site and in the forum and social media to build relationships. 

5. Contact support

If you have a question or concern related to a specific transaction in your account, contacting our dedicated support team is the best way to get the fastest response.
