Wiki............ My take on it is this:
I have no desire to spend even an iota of my free time adding valuable content to a site when it could easily be removed or altered by any idiot. I am also not in the business of charity (except with RPG collectors), so I refuse on this basis as well.
I don't even USE it, since the possibility of information being inaccurate is very high.
I rank it somewhere just below MySpace. Virtually useless and a serious time-waster.

I agree with Mike - Wikipedia can be useful - especially in non-academic/political areas and with the caveat that you cross-check any info. you get there.  
As for time-wasting... youtube is the king there  8O

Given David's went for more and mine was around the same value as your prediction I tend to agree.  

Will be interesting to see how hungry people are just after Christmas.  That credit card must be looking pretty full ...  :lol:

I had originally asked if there was a good synopsis of the Tomoachan adventure and I cited wiki as having what (appeared) to be a good article on D&D modules, but no substantive description of Tomoachan.

Sorry if I am at fault here for causing the digression.

I wouldn't care if that was the only copy in existence.. that's a bundle of money for what is effectively some looseleaf pieces of paper.

Slap on some fancy Erol Otus artwork and now we're talking :)

I used to say that as well, things and circumstance change.  Buying the super rares is cool and in some strange sense satisfying :)

I am not addicted! Who said I was addicted?  Tell them they are wrong. I can stop any time I like.  Like maybe next week or maybe the week after that ... :roll:

i actually agree with the value of this module! I love prototypes! To me this module and others form this era are the seeds the game sprouted from! Here you can see the beginnings of the greatness and when compared to the later 1E modules you can see what it evolved into - I love it! The onlymodule i feel is overrated is ST1! That is because i feel its value is based soley on rarity and not quality!

Well, there had better be some more red-hot bidding before the auction ends.  I bought popcorn and everything.  Never let it be said that I don't know how to spend an exciting Saturday evening...  :wink:
