Howdy Folks,





Get a load of this:



"Q: So...has the iitem been shipped yet? It's been over 3 weeks..."



Your item sold on Nov. 13 it shipped on 11/23 that's 10 days, not 22+ days. I packaged 140 shipments in 7 days and sat in the Post Office for 2 hours on Thanksgiving. Please show some patience.




The best part is this is for a $3 item! Why do the people who spend the least always complain the most?



It just bugs the heck out of me that people think that the only thing an eBay seller should do is lick their boots! I mean c'mon don't these people realize the volume of packages and the amount of work it takes to pack them?





Futures Bright,



Paul

i think that sums up a lot of ebayers out there at times. they are not really interested in anything else going on, just their one little item. like you have got nothing else to do at that point in time but sent their one thing.



i find with some, that no matter what you do, it just simply isnt enough. i had one the other week that replied "i am a little dissapointed that it took three days to get to me from the end of the auction. i paid right away and expected the book right away. i guess not everyone is as fast as me"  8O  8O  8O  8O  needless to say, his win was £0.99! if he had lived closer, i would have took it by hand and rammed it down his feckin throat. numbnut.



anyway.



thanks for the efforts paul. looking forward to my items and your next auctions!



Al

I've always thought there should be one of these, as Q1 doesn't match the rest of the set nicely...Paul, please elaborate!

Just got my stuff, too. And, let me tell you, that is QUITE the B2 that I won. Other than being complete, it is one of the most-thrashed modules I've ever seen. :D

Yeah, it's a typo! Yeah, yeah, that's it. A typo...



Nothing like a bad typo for good advertising, I always say.



Actually I meant, D3 monocolor. The picture of Lolth on the cover triggered Q1 in my brain. Sorry. Fixed it.

The Collector's Trove wrote:Woodgrain Prepub (possibly)






I bought it in an eBay auction 6 years ago from a fellow in the Southeastern US. He had no picture and made an egregious error in his listing. The auction ended early so he could correct these errors. I offered a buyout price, sight unseen, and he took it. When it arrived I was sorely disappointed as the set was a mess and was missing the label! "What a piece of junk!", I thought. So I tossed it into my spare parts box. There it sat for 6 years.



Recent research on the founding members of the Castle and Crusade Society revealed one member was William Linden. I remembered the name, dug out the pre-pub box and sure enough, W. Linden was scrawled on the booklets. Coincidence? I don't know but the very few people who got a pre-pub set had to be small and confined to Gygax's immediate associates. Certainly, William Linden was one.



And by the way, my items arrived today; excellent as usual.




Enjoy!





Futures Bright,



Paul

Hey, I'm an Aluminum Powerseller, I assure you the module was in only NEAR THRASHED condition when i mailed it! I cannot be held responsible for the Post Office Reducing it to MOST THRASHED. ["No longer a registered eBay user land", here I come!] :P

Thanks for the clarification. My head about popped off when I saw that. :o  Here I was thinking, Hmmm Q1 Monocolor, must be some sort of pre pub module.......
