I don't care how influential and important an artist he is, I am not interested in seeing Erol Otus nude.  :lol:

How nice huh? :evil:   I have a sneaking suspicion that it will start to increase unless something is done to curb it.

Is there no moderator on that particular forum? Would the moderator explain the forum's position on this?

I believe that  Foul is the only moderator for this forum.  I certainly can't speak for him, but I do know that he is sometimes out of the country and unable to reply.  I am sure he will address the concerns in this post at some point . . .

I apologize for the late reply -- I've been around, but haven't been reading this thread.

The moderator's position is that Titan Games isn't doing anything wrong.  Yes, he's posting his list once a week.  Yes, he posted two messages this time instead of just one.  No, this is not a big deal.

The Classifieds forum very nearly replicates rec.games.frp.marketplace, though without the random spam.  You may consider Titan Games' postings "spam", but he has just as much right to list his wares as you do.  If he continues to post multiple messages at once (where one would suffice), or if the frequency of postings gets ridiculous, I'll say something to him.  Until then, just... skip over it.  Don't read his posts.  For chrissakes, there's only a handful of new messages in there per day anyway.

Though I can tell by the number of post-views that at least some people are interested in reading them -- and since the only negative thing I've heard about Titan Games is "high prices", I don't imagine that the universe will end because of it.

I agree with this, nothing to get worked up over anyway.

I think the major objection was that he doesn't contribute anything to the board, and just uses it as free advertising. Given the friendly, info-sharing nature of the Acaeum, I think that rubs a lotta people the wrong way.

Be that as it may -- that's to his detriment.  He's missing out on some great conversations.  It costs very little to ignore his postings.

If all fails...just let Titan Games know that you don't like their business practices.

They are available online, after all.

I think that the major  beef with TitanGames is that they are perceived as badguys because they try to make money off of their comical shipping policies.

If I can stand the crap...and if I want the item enough...I will buy from them.

Wow, that pretty much sums up my activity to a "T".

LOL; that's 1000x funnier that it's actually a real product.  The RPGA network is such a fun idea, but the real thing...not so much.

Or maybe have a section for forum members wanting to give fellow collectors a prompt, and a separate thread for junk mail that we can all ignore?




I have to fully agree with bclarkie on this one, too. This forum is for collectors and to a lesser extent players. The classified section works perfectly for those of us who dabble in selling, trading and buying.



I think I am going on about 2 years on this site and have used the classified section about 5 times - only when I have an item or two that I think is worthy of this group do I post my auctions.



"Professional" businesses should basically be eliminated from peddling their wares here.


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!

well in all fairness, after foul's comment, i have to say that foul is just about right here. i know the ID that titan uses now to "Peddle thier warez", so when i see it i just ignore it totally now and the forum feels just the same to me now.



should try it.

ps. i dont agree with them posting here mind, just thought i would say that, but its no biggie to me now as i dont have to look at it

Well! I've just spend a completely non-productive hour or two reading over the collector's forums - I had no idea that my posts were causing so much irritation and anger. Rest assured that I will no longer post in the "classified" section. If anyone wants to be added to the mailing list, please feel free to send me your email and I'll add it on.



Thanks,
