Cheers  :D


Alright...  :lol: I've adjusted the prices on many of our D&D items... most of which went down in price about 10-20%.  There were a few problems with some things being way too high, and some things being too low as well, but for around 60-70% of our D&D items the prices seemed to be reasonable.

Anyways, thank you guys for your input... our D&D prices were originally entered in a little over a year ago, and not many adjustments had been made until now. These new prices should be in effect around Monday, whenever the site updates.

Unfortunately, most of the really rare items I had to leave at their current prices. Who knows, you guys might end up seeing them at GenCon or Origins auctions in 2007. Or we might send them to auction on Ebay sooner or later.

COUGIE UPDATE:

Check out the 1st question at the end of this item listing:

cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem& ... 0071145251

I emailed the seller to warn about his tactic to bid anyhow and use a U.S. address, as he stated that he would.

Just an FYI,


"Okay, we turn the corner and see a Purple 'WHAT' !?!" . . (the DM rolls a 20 or so he says) . . It all went black right after that.

I love the seller's reply, essentially, "Leave me the fuck alone".  LOL

At least he is no longer claiming to be platinum rated.

Although by the email he sent the seller it would appear that his bad press is having an effect on his ability to purchase items.  

Please pay no attention to individuals who e-mail you lying about me, my reputation or the US PS M bags, instead please report them straight away by forwarding the e-mail to Ebay via customer support. Also please check my feedback & theirs, I think you'll soon discover who is the more reputable?

Strange. If it is an issue, why doesn't he just take another handle for his eBay account and work his way up again? Most people don't really care about feedback so long as you are over 30+ positives with no negatives, I would think.

What is shady about it?

Most definitely an incarnation of Cougie's

Why is it that you can only see the items for sale by doing an advanced search by seller with the completesd in 30 days checked?

Anyway here is the link to the 400+ auctions that the "Princess Freya" has up:

http://cgi6.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?M ... ompleted=1

At least he spelled out VGC  :roll:
and still using the good old scanner...cheapskate

:lol:

I guess Cougie is starting over to try and beat his Rep.  Busted and he hasn't even complete one sale yet. :D   You'd think that he would have least been smart enough to change the terms and conditions of his freaking auction descriptions. :roll:  :roll:  :roll:    You know this is so good, it defintely deserves its own thread............

I wonder, though. I mean, we all now what a truly awful, vindictive, immature, greedy, and pathetic POS Cougie is ... but, bottom line, his current stats are nowhere near the danger zone for a seller (and, yes, I realize how often he uses the "mutual withdraw" feature, which is just about the poorest eBay policy of the past five years).

Honestly, why would anyone run away from a 7,000 score and a 99.3 ratio? Both of those numbers are better than my own, for example, and I have no trouble at all getting plenty of bids and dozens of watchers for my items. And there's no way I'd ever choose to start over, either.

Something's not adding up for me here. Our villainous feline is up to something ... I just have no idea what. On the surface, this move makes no sense.

The thing about the Coug though that does not reflect in his feedback rating is all the sellers out there that have him blocked from their auctions.  That and the fact, as evidenced by his contacts with sellers about people trying to ward them off selling to him because of his M-Bag scam(which amazingly enough has not happened once since he was outed here for it. Must be a coincidence :roll: ) I imagine if Coug is creating a new ID, it is to help hide from his past transgressions as a buyer plain and simple.  I am figuring that this new ID he has is only running auctions now so that he can boost he feedback score enough so that he can be seen as a more legitamate buyer for the future.  After his feedback score with this new ID is sufficient enough, he will resume selling under Cougarrinard and use this new ID as his buying ID.  That way its harder to show people his previous negs for theft via M-Bag and it also helps him bid on all those sellers that already have him blocked from his auctions.

Hold on .. you are trying to make sense of the actions of someone who doesn't make sense.  8O

Don't forget this is the same person who tried to corner the H1 market.  :evil:
