    That BB "fix" the price of what I work for???

    I doubt that TSO will investigate these, since there is nothing in the code of conduct about not making "unfair" trades. It's obvious that anyone trying to sell a cannon for 50 gold is also trying it on - nobody who understands what a cannon does in TSO is going to buy it - but that doesn't make the offer to trade at that price unlawful. When people send reversed trades they're certainly trying to catch you out but I'm sure they would argue that if your original offer was a fair one you'll have no problem trading it back with other players. If you were trying your own unbalanced trade then you're only reaping what you sowed. You just have to be careful and remember to look at each trade offer carefully.

    On the 300 stone for 50 marble trade, I agree with the previous poster. When I run short of marble for replacing mines and my provision house is tied up for 8 hours making stacks of irmas its a handy way of grabbing that needed marble fast and I don't mind paying a 20% 'fee' to get it. When I'm not trading other commodities and have a good stock I often put up a 300/50 offer just to undercut anyone who I think is 'profiteering' by offering less favourable exchange rates - but that doesn't mean anyone who trades for more is banworthy. Everyone wants to find a trade that they consider profitable and where you personally draw the line between healthy profit and ripping people off is an individual thing.

    I just did a 400/400 straight trade for hardwood planks-marble -- I started with 700 HP+ HP AND 200+ MARBLE - After a trade I now have 85HP AND 350 MARBLE
    so I've lost 700 hardwood planks for 100 marble??? - is this a bug? any mods/devs??

    did you have a building in building queue that needed more than 200 marble to start construction? If so the game would take the raw materials from your storehouse almost as soon as you accepted the trade and start building
