I would refer you to what was said about ways to prevent private offers from the brothers...in some cases. In a case or two it has been bidders remorse and hoping someone outbids me. Another is to make sure an item gets noticed....covering all the bases as it were. As I said I am sure there are others who don't post here that follow our bidding habits. I was also under the assumption that we were trying to gauge the value of items here and advertising helps make sure an accurate value is acheived but I don't want to get into that again  :lol:

As to the DMA it was me trying to get a bargain...I tried to bury it on a second page so I could get a good deal...kind of defeats the post above but heck that is why I am apologizing.

I am not going to bid on the PHB. If it is a T1st then the BIN is a good price. If not there is no way to win on that auction. I won't blame you  :)

I did think it was poor form for Faro to put in the permalink to Mark's bid list.

Even if the experienced guys (and/or girls) know how to do it, the idea could have been expressed without actually doing it.

BTW I didn't know how to see someone's bids, was interested, but wouldn't use it. I'll actually be a bit worried others are looking at mine - my wife is seriously considering buying her sister padded underwear (for shaping) and I'd be paranoid everyone would think they'd be for me   :lol:  8O  :?

And for those that are thinkng of looking, no she hasn't bid yet.  8)

Apparently people who bid on stuff they don't want others seeing must create false identities?

I can't believe that Ebay allows that.  Well, yes I can, but I don't think they should.


Hey Ship, if you really thought about it, I am sure you would see why this is such a good thing.  Being able to see other people's bids is the main way that we are able to help protect the ebay community from the "bad guys"?  How do you think bclarkie (and others) sniff out all the shill bidders?  By searching out their auction history and looking for patterns.  

It's part of being a member of an open community.  Sure . . . all of us are also buying prodigious amounts of porn . . . but, hey, that's what an alternate ID is for!  :D

Also, keep in mind that you can easily prevent this from happening . . . just choose to keep your feedback private . . . this not only hides your feedback from others, but it also prevents others from doing searches on your bid history.  There are negatives to go along with keeping your ID private . . . but you just have to weight the options and decide which one is best for you.

Whether or not that fits your definition, it is very wearing having to "worry" about whether it's OK or not to post anything here without the indirect, repetitive critique of "I didn't mention those two auctions because there were Acaeum members already listed as bidders" (EVEN if they were no longer high bidders!).

*

Silly and rather childish, IMO; just like long, re-re-edited rambling replies with phrasing such as "I will add my bid list to my signature file if anyone has any concerns about that" (called, please do!), "can everyone please please please forgive me this terrible act?" (:roll:) and "So is it accepted here to post auctions even if others are the high bidder now? If so then when I do it I will make sure the people affected know it was "your will" we are doing this because others tend to observe it" (emphasis mine) (go for it...).



OK, enough already (like ya say, trying to get the "last word").



Either people can post in this thread without having to stress 'bout "complaints", or else it might as well be locked-down.

Personally, I still prefer to point out "interesting items" (and not just top-$ ones), to help keep hobby-interest levels going rather than form a silent cartel to protect "our interests". It's a close call, though.

Open, unmoderated forum. Post whatever you like!
I had reservations about this thread from the very beginning, not because it isn't useful, but because I was sure it would be misused.

Anyone know where I can get that map?  I recall an online map, but does anyone know where to look for a paper copy?


Mark, you may be able to order copies of LGJ#2 from Paizo, they had some awhile ago.  I've got a spare or two I'll be selling soon, too.  

You can also download the published city map, as well as the unpublished sewers map @ the cartographer's web site @ http://www.melkot.com/locations/cogh/cogh.html

UK B1 : seller's second copy, so might be recycling the previous image (UK auction).


** expired eBay auction **


Stuck at 99p with 1 day to go, for some reason.

(+ Other interesting non-TSR items/same seller)

Amen. Plus, haven't we already been over this "should I/shouldn't I post to this thread" debate?

If I want to be moderated to within inches of my life, I'll head over to Dragonsfoot.

There's at least one more use I can think of: calling out idiot buyers (often n00bs, but not necessarily "bad guys") who are massively over-extended and/or think eBay is a game.

Three times, I've been able to report supreme idiots after they gave me about four weeks of endless "check is in the mail" excuses followed by "I'm broke, dude, can we just forget about it?" After checking their bidding history — which is merely a one-stop version of information already 100-percent in the public domain — I was able to determine that these three guys were just way, way over-extended on their bidding.

As I didn't consider this to be my problem, I reported all three: two were removed from eBay and one guy eventually decided to pay me. Had they just been bidding on my stuff, I probably would have shrugged and let it go ... but the point is that the only way I was able to make a fair determination was to check their bidding history.

I think it's very interesting. The interface sucks muddy bay water, but it's a great research tool.

Oh, and here's an on-topic item: Clyde Caldwell painting. Nearly a week left, but you'll have to open up your wallet.  :)



Edit: ^^^ Hmmm ... the photo isn't showing up. Seems like a strange way to try to sell a painting. :)

Strange mixed lot that contains the AD&D Fighting Wheel. The price seems right for a Rarity 4 item ...



Fighting Wheel



UK seller, but ships worldwide.

Very well said.

And three and a half years ago there was an entire thread about whose eBay bid lists to search for in order to find the most choice items:

Mkman had most of us pegged.

I see it does. I am not even sure how I got pulled into this. I never even started the poll and it was not about that. I assume I wronged some people in some other way and this is karma striking a blow. So I am now not going to worry who the bidders are and not complain. Only problem is I had to remove most of my sig file to post my bid list.

I'm not sure about divided, but as I've said a few times in the past, it is becoming quite cutthroat. Used to be that when someone picked up a good item, there were congrats and cheers galore. Now it's mostly "grrrrrrr" or "damn it, I missed that one. What a steal" or the like. Seems to be a lot more jealousy and negativity. It's really a shame, if the majority of the members worked together, prices could be cut dramatically, which would really be in everyone's interest.
