I was wondering is it against the EULA to sell a real world service for in-game use for isk?

Don't do it unless you want to be banned. Or go ahead and do it, but give me your stuff first. Twisted Evil

Well, some folk have developed software applications and receive ISk from the users. Eve Commander comes to mind.

I meant a service like a ventrilo server to be used in line with the game play not at all like me selling mp3's or something the like for isk.

Services unrelated to the game cannot be exchanged for ISK without violating the EULA.

Services that are directly game related can be traded for ISK.

If you want to know if your specific service is sufficiently game related to be permitted within the EULA, then file a petition.

Take donations for use of services. I wonder if that's against the EULA.

I am pretty sure that works as long as it is a "donation".

Yes, it's done regularly which you would have noticed if you had taken 30 seconds to search the WTS forum for "ventrilo server" or any such comparable term. Rolling Eyes

Forum sig creation is another common one.

It's kinda half and half. Whilst technically any of those things are against the EULA CCP generally doesn't get involved unless they think it's a bit too much (for example someone trying to trade WoW gold for ISK)

Things that come to mind are:

Forum Sigs
Killboards
Vent Servers
Casinos / Games

Surely these people must not be violating the EULA.

I remember posting a thread when I needed a name for my new RL company I wanted to create.
From the top of my head I think I would pay 30 million or so to the one that would bring me to my final choice.
CCP never closed that thread or warned me of violating EULA (Nor was I aware of it)
Why not using this community for some help ?
I agree that it should somehow have some limits.
