It does, but in the wrong column. This is "Interesting Items."

I think I actually did come up with a better system that I posted, either basing it strictly on auction/confirmed private sales, or allowing ALL Acaeum members to submit their valuations in the form of what they would pay for a certain item. Obviously there might be the occasional idiot who will say a 1st print MM is worth $500, but the obvious jokes can be filtered out.

Even better, get rid of the grading system and have a range. For example, a 1st print MM could range from $25-$150, ranging the valuations from fair to NM (by current standards). That way, we don't get idiots who look up the Acaeum value of an item, add 100% to it, and put it up on eBay ($2,000 for a Tamoachan?).

I believe I mentioned a T1st Greyhawk...



Agreed, Frank, re. consensus system as a possible balance and may also be of interest to obtain a broader perspective, rather than just the top two figures in a given auction.

... And yes, presuming honestly stated numbers of course!

Yeah, but with the rider that I'm not going to tell anyone I think so and want their copy for under a buck, no?

I am in no position to issue "gagging orders".  I encourage an open discussion on the grading system which should be used by the valuation board. It was merely an attempt to prevent cluttering up this post and bore the other members with our discussion.



BTW, I have sent you that email.

I would suggest the following:



1.  Move these topics to the Valuation Board thread and erase them from this thread.



2.  Continue the discussion.  I find it interesting and informative.  IMO, the more opinions that are garnished, the better the end result will be.  This is also very eye opening for those of us with a little less experience with D&D as myself (although not entirely lacking, I admit freely that most of you have much more than I).


May Eru's light shine upon you always.

I a separate and more humorous matter:

Actually, in politics that's often more than enough.





Not for the voters.



Not true...it was enough for the German Chancellor to be elected just by saying "NO" to Iraq.... :lol:  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:  :wink:



To clarify...this is not a serious post...just a little political sarcasm to try to lighten the mood.... :)

Yes, that's the one. BTW, you are discrediting yourself by quoting from a private email on a public forum.



Edit: I received your PM, your email does not seem to work. You have made your point clear and I do not wish to drag this any further. I hope you can accept that.

(replies sent via PM owing to email not working)



...no, you did not need to "put me down" by /forcing/ things on to a

private response, and further emphasise that by saying you'd done so.



You could just as easily have sent the email without telling the whole

board. Agree?



It's exactly the same as a school teacher taking a naughty pupil to the

corner of the room to talk to them 1-on-1. Not that that's allowed

nowadays, I suspect.



If your "assessment of my character" was correct, I'd now post the

rest of that private email...

Wasn't sure what point you were trying to make there, Ralf, especially after your own "It was merely an attempt to prevent cluttering up this post and bore the other members with our discussion" comment...





EDIT: Noted receipt of copy emails by Ralf.

Yup, ISP looks like it's stuffed here and I'll be getting copies of your email for the rest of my life, since it's failing to flag as being read. Gee, thanks...

I have no desire, but somebody better bid that up because there is no way we let the fuzzball get that for just $51.00 plus shipping :twisted: .

Hi guys,

Something weird and quite unusual (i think, never seen much on ebay france), the first version of our favourite game in French... the red box, with a cover by Erol Otus, and its module. After that version, we had the more common red box with red dragon.

The last one soared to about 50 Euro (65 - 70 $ perhaps / French OCE :wink: )

Too bad, I might have been interested, but it says he ships to France only   :(  Shipping seems a bit on the high end as well :evil:

Of course it goes in Roleplaying. Helps when you play Doctor. I operated a lot on one of my neighbors' sisters when I was a lad.
