Howdy,


Admittedly, I laughed out loud when I got that one. Had I only realized how lucky I had been. Whew! :lol:

I'd love to hear some of his voice-overs!

Maybe some day you'll be able to leave audio feedback on ebay!   :lol:

I noticed that he has experience only on the PC platform.  Isn't most of the artsy (art, music, graphic design, etc) and computer publishing stuff dominated by MAC?  Most guys I know who do this all swear by their trusty MACs.

Interesting work experience:

1992: Futurewars Magazine- ILLUSTRATIONS / LOGO DESIGN

Was that not a Battletech zine?

That's my understanding as well.  Might explain why he's looking for work...NAKED!  :D

Not so much anymore — most of the creative software is so similar on both platforms that it really doesn't matter which you choose to get the job done. Ten years ago, yes, most creative agencies used nothing but a sea of Macs for their workflow; also, some of the software, in particular Aldus PageMaker, was noticeably better when run on a Mac.

You're definitely likely to find numerous Mac workstations at any creative-type business, but it's also quite likely you'll see more than one PC box, too.

Damn, this thread just keeps giving and giving.  I've been reading the guy's feedback left for others just for kicks.  Too damned funny.

Did you guys see the series of feedbacks related to super heroes?  The one about Wonder Woman arriving so fast her wonder tights became a g-string really cracked me up.  Or something along those lines.

I thought he just did it for laughs! I thought it was funny.

Especially his bio."an eccentrically quixotic piscean with a humourously romantic view on life"

romantic? Could you imagine a twenty stone transvestite in a rubber gimp
suit being romantic?

:lol: great stuff.  Not my preference, but at least it is a lot less dull than the average feedback.  I might start being a bit more creative with mine  :D

True. It would be more fun if your feedback had a humourous theme?
It would better A+++ any day of the week. However a theme based
on oiled up butt naked blokes is a bit O.T.T.
That guy must be desperate for a same sex relationship!

I really don't think this guy is an "idiot bidder" but I wonder if I should worry.  A bidder retracted a bid on one of my auctions because "he could not contact seller".  He and I did communicate about the item soon after I listed it, and I thought all was well.  I really don't mind the bid retraction, but he is still bidding on 3 other auctions of mine.  I have just sent him a message asking if he had a question.  And I replied to the message that ebay sent me notifying me about the bid retraction to note that no message had come through their system.  I don't really know if this is just a convenient way to cancel a bid - which doesn't really bother me, or if it will reflect negatively on my reputation as a seller.  And am I in for last minute retractions tomorrow?  Thoughts?

Ding Ding - Ebay doesn't want bidders to overuse bid retractions so they only offer like 2 or 3 reasons to choose when retracting a bid.  They also scare bidders into NOT choosing that they entered a wrong bid price by saying that they HAVE to re-enter a different price afterwards though nothing actually makes you do that.  Most likely no one won't even look into the retraction area of that auction and even if they do I don't see it impacting you in any sort of broad sense.

Gd Luck with your auctions!

Thanks for the comforting words, RG! Having found this thread to post my insignificant woes on, I read through the whole thing - man, I can not believe the stuff that has gone on!  I consider myself very lucky and am thinking about enacting some of the limitations you and bclarkie et al recommend to prevent ebay hijinks.  You are the masters - I bow to your (hard earned) wisdom!  Thanks for sharing.
