Ads for un-released items

Since there are ads on every page of ACC offering members items that aren't released on the game yet for real money.
Are the giveaways/ trading board allowed to trade items that haven't been released yet?

If not, I feel it is quite unfair to the members having ads to purchase them with real cash, when as part of the ACC community they could be buying them with bells, or trading them.

I'm not too familiar with these items that haven't been released yet. When you say that, do you mean you can only obtain them via hacking or is there another way such as in-game time travel that can yield them as well?

If these are hacked items it's definitely a concern. I think you could make a case that paid hacked item ads could be considered predatory considering the audience of our site. I think we should gather the URLs similar to the way it's done in this thread even if it's not the normal definition of family-friendly. At least that would allow us to give the Admins the ads to evaluate and decide what goes into the filter.

The items being offered on that site are items that are released during December and January on the game. Unobtainable through time travelling, so yes hacked.
I have no objections to hacked items, but ACC having ads leading to a site that charges money for them isn't in the spirit of ACC.

I will post the next couple of URLs on that thread. Thanks.
