This FAQ listing is for your use to help you with any immediate questions you might have about WrestlingTradingCards.com or its message boards. If you have read the FAQs and still have not found the answer you are looking for, please contact us immediately so that we can help you.
This FAQ may be updated at any time. Although WTC will do its best to make the proper notifications of any additions to this section, it is wise for you to check the FAQ often.
Is WrestlingTradingCards.com a safe environment for kids?
Yes, we pride ourselves on keeping the WTC community a safe place for people of all ages. If you see any material on the site that you find objectionable, please click on the Contact link at the top of any page to send us an email detailing the problem. We will take immediate action to rectify the situation.
Does WrestlingTradingCards.com own all the cards listed on the website?
No. Although everyone who works on updating WTC or provides information collects wrestling trading cards, WTC does not personally own all the cards listed.
How does WrestlingTradingCards.com gather all of its information?
WrestlingTradingCards.com gathers information from a wide variety of resources. Manufacturers’ sales sheets, member notifications, staff visits to trade shows and conventions and even direct relationships with some of the manufacturers themselves, all play an important part of our information gathering. Much of the information we get comes from collectors themselves.
Please note that information sent to us may not be used right away. Although we enjoy the feedback that we get from collectors, we cannot simply post information without finding other sources who can substantiate that information. WTC tries to make sure that the information it gathers is accurate and true. Sending us an email about a trading card or set does not guarantee that it will be used.
May I publish or use WrestlingTradingCards.com's information on another website or in a printed publication?
We encourage you to use WTC to help you understand the cards you have or the cards you are looking for. However, if you take any information from WrestlingTadingCards.com and use it on another website (personal or otherwise) or use it in a printed publication (magazine/book), you must give WrestlingTradingCards.com credit. When giving credit to WTC, please use the following citation.

Can I directly link to any of the images or pages from WTC?
WTC users are encouraged to download any of the checklists and/or information areas for their own personal use. However, users may not directly link to any of the images or pages from WTC.
Do you sell the items listed on WrestlingTradingCards.com?
WrestlingTradingCards.com does not sell anything on its website. WTC is an information and reference source website, providing you the best information possible about the wrestling trading cards you collect. Selling of cards is permitted on our message boards. WTC is not responsible for the types of transactions that take place on our message boards. If you partake in the use of buying, selling, or trading with others on the message boards, you do so at your own risk and WTC is not liable for any of those transactions. When dealing in sales or trades with others, use caution. It is wise to ask for references from others in the community if you have concerns.
Where can I buy the cards that you have listed on your website?
Since we do not sell any of the cards directly from our website, WrestlingTradingCards.com offers many useful links to help you find the cards that you are interested in. We recommend that you visit these websites and contact these sellers. In addition, we recommend you try some of the more popular online auction websites such as e-Bay. Always use caution when buying cards via the web. Ask questions and get referrals when you can.
I have some images that are not on WrestlingTradingCards.com. Can I send them to WrestlingTradingCards.com?
Yes! WrestlingTradingCards.com tries to provide you with useful information about all wrestling trading cards. We try to offer images of many of the great trading cards we have listed on our checklist pages. Many of these images have come from our members. If you have images, you can send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please be sure that they are no smaller than 400 pixels high for images that are vertical and no less than 400 pixels long for images that are horizontal. Images should be clear, of high resolution and be in either JPG or GIF format (JPG is preferred). WTC will scale the images down to the size needed for display. Scanned images work best as images taken with digital cameras tend to add dimensions (depth and angle) to the image that make it hard to edit and resize.
I'd like to submit my website to your Links page. How do I do that?
WrestlingTradingCards.com offers a variety of useful links located on our Links page. We try to keep these links limited to only those that fall within the categories we have listed. Personal websites like those paying homage to certain wrestlers/promotions, fan-zine type websites and/or personal collection(s) websites are not to be submitted and will not be added to our links page. If you wish to advertise your own personal website, please add it to your message board Profile page [see information below on editing your Profile page].

What is the policy on spam, profanity, personal attacks (flaming)?
WrestlingTradingCards.com does not allow any forms of outside advertising that do not pertain to what WTC is all about ... wrestling trading cards!
Profanity will not be tolerated. Although we have an automatic profanity/censoring function in place, there are certainly ways around those features. Please respect all others. We understand that debates can and will happen, but please keep them diplomatic and respect other people’s opinions and suggestions. WTC tries to appeal to a broad range of collectors of all ages, including kids. Please show some respect. Violators could be banned from the boards.
Flaming is defined as a personal attack on someone. Some topics can bring out some very passionate feelings. Attacking someone through our message boards is not an acceptable means to convey your thoughts or opinions. If you have an issue with a member about something that was said, please either send them a personal message [PM] or send them a private email. Contact the Webmaster if you feel one of our rules was broken.
Can I post anything that is sent to me via private message [PM] or through personal emails?
The only way to post these types of messages is by getting explicit permission from the sender. Posting personal message or personal emails not only lacks taste, but could get you banned from the boards.
If you have any questions for which we have failed to provide an answer to, please notify us by using the Contact link at the top of this page and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
