GameTraders USA Introduction – Standards – & Guidelines
ABOUT GT USA
WV GameTraders was the original GT USA trading group created in 2013 on Facebook. After the Charleston, WV chemical spill Phil Williams evacuated back to his hometown of New Castle, DE. Before leaving Charleston he wished his new friends of WV GameTraders a Farewell, and they recommended he create a game trading group in Delaware.
When Phil Williams went back to his hometown he found there were no good game trading groups in DE on Facebook. So he created DE GameTraders on 2/14/14. It instantly became an amazing community that grew by the thousands in weeks. After seeing how much everyone loved both groups he introduced himself to the creator of WV GameTraders Marc Crouse, and presented the idea of building Game Trading groups across the country. The unified name they decided on was GameTraders USA.
So on 5/5/14 Phil Williams and Marc Crouse assembled a small team and built GT USA trading groups across the country. They also built a successful Facebook Gamer Forum and National Trading Group. They rapidly built a Admin Team on Facebook that consist of over 45+ members now. Marc Crouse gave Phil Williams his blessing to build GT USA is high as it can go, and GT USA has been ever evolving since.
Building a huge network like GT USA is no easy task. They decided to branch out to other social networks, but most networks aren’t set up for Game Trading Groups. So they started sharing memes and other gaming sites content on the FB Forum and other networks.
All of the main original admins of GT USA all came together on the GT USA FB Forum. Sharing others content led to the small group of admins to start making their own memes, gaming art, and interactive images. Everything eventually came together and they created www.gametradersusa.com on 11/22/15. Since the creation of the website GT USA has been growing everyday, and getting better as it goes.
