The Looking For Group (LFG) Tool is intended to help bring players together to enjoy many types of game content, including Open World PvE, Fractals and Raids, PvP, WvW, and role playing. The LFG Tool is not intended to be used to advertise the sale of in-game items or for any purpose other than group formation.
Additionally, transactions initiated through the LFG Tool (or, any other means outside the Trading Post system) can put players at risk of being scammed.
Because using the tool for purposes outside the intended use for forming groups can not only be a risk for players, but also make it difficult to sort through the listing for players who would use the tool as intended. As such, our policy on the Looking For Group Tool is as follows:
Players may use the LFG Tool only for the formation of a group.
Players may use the tool to sell a spot in a group (because that can be part of the group formation process) but they may not use it for the sale or trading of items, nor for any other purpose. Please see our article on Buying and Selling "Runs" for more information.
