Has anyone else had this problem....

I click on 'initiate trade with this user' and I get the following error

Failed. This can happen for several reasons
- You tried to initiate a trade with yourself
- You included a link in the subject (add it later in the "notes" field)
- Your subject was too short. Make it meaningful.

I'm not trading with myself, I didn't include any links or create a subject as I only clicked the link to setup a trade.

I don't know what to do!!!

I sent a PM to admin last Thursday and still haven't heard anything back.

YOu have to make FIPG a trusted site. Do you know how to do that?

Try lowering your security settings to medium as well.

Hey, thanks
I lowered my settings and it seems to be working. I tried to add this site, but it said it had to be an https site. It wouldn't take http. Maybe that is a Vista thing, as I'm using the new windows Vista now.
Thanks again.

Glad you got it working!!

also when you get failure notices... you can also cancel the trade, and re-initiate it... you can just make a note to a mod saying this is a redo of a previous site because it did not work the first time... i havent come across that problem in a while... but when i did ... thats what i did

Yup. Vista's IE7 upgraded a lot of things, especially restricting "trusted" sites to those with HTTPS (Microsoft concluded that a site couldn't be trusted unless it was using a secure protocol --Doh!)

Ok i need to know how to make this a trusted site because i am having the same problem. Thanks.

Hope this helps.
