People have done so for me and I just went with it, although i do not know if there is an official policy. I don't see why it would not be fine; one just has to then use the marketplace here on BGG for the transaction.

It's actually a great idea to do a trade query before sending them a proposal anyways... just to make sure they're up to date on their collection. So yes, it's a great idea to send them a note saying that you'd like them to trade/sell you stuff. Just be patient as not everyone gets back to you on your requests so if you haven't heard back in a week or so just give them another nudge... ever so politely.

Oh and check to see when they were last on... if they haven't been on since '98 then they're probably not coming back.

Good luck

Trade inquiry, yes, absolutely. Especially if you have a specific trade in mind.

Selling? Iffy. Some people don't mind, some will not appreciate it. Probably okay if you have a compelling reason to believe that the person really wants to buy that particular game and you are offering a good deal.
