Let's not be too critical.  After all, it does matter to the seller how much emotional value an item may have.  Everyone has the right to set a price on giving up old treasures, even if we don't agree with that price.



    I would not deal with Cougarrinard...not because he is high priced or possibly unscrupulous.  I would not deal with him because the things he writes in peoples' feedback reports is just so mean and counter-productive.



    Anyway.... 8)

I was wondering what was all the fuss about retard's feedback, then I read this:



Buyer: Would buy from again, but change the feedback pushing

Reply by cougarrinard: change the feedback dodgeing & I have no need to ask if iem arrived, U happy etc  

Follow-up by keravin: Compare to previous transaction. Your new policy is pushy in the extreme




What a tool :!:



A seller who will piss off a good customer who has purchased from him multiple times.  8O

Yeah, Coug is just not a good person :(    The only positive thing I can think of to his ultra-pushy methods is that he's bound to implode from stress sooner or later and the rest of us will be spared him for a while.

sorry but its one of them intervening moments again - hes not like that with everyone ok? i've always got on great with him and hes never pushed me with anything - and i know i aint the only one.



i am sure that whatever he does - ie. what you see, there must be a good reason for it or he wouldnt do it.



one thing i DO know tho, is that his stuff from max DIDNT arrive. there is no question of that issue.



anyway there we go....back onto more interesting things

Defraud the Royal Mail by reusing unpostmarked postage stamps to increase his own profits.

Yup, sounds like a "good reason". (Even if he's stopped doing so, now).

Inside line on that one, Al?



Well, your pick of fraudsters, if so...

Sounds like a good idea. :)



Enjoy that marathon!

I dealt with him exactly once myself. He was a pushy jackarse to me, and I'm a really, really forgiving buyer when it comes to delays and problems. I paid for my order, then had a dispute thread opened for it, then had to play email tag to get things straightened out, and then had the standard barrage of "plz leave feedback now now now now" while my order was en route. All in all, one of the most frustrating buys I've ever done.

Of that I have no doubt. Coug is a wanker, imo, but Max is a pile of ambulatory crap.

I bought a few items from Coug way back (maybe even before he was a Titanuim power seller :wink: )  and aside from high shipping from the island over the sea everything went OK.  I won't buy from him now (not that he has anything I want anyways) after seeing all the bad notes about him here.

I have to say that all of my Ebay experiences so far have been really positive.



  Only once have I had to remind a seller that his item was late, and then it was sent right away....with a smile and with no whining.



   I try to hold up my end by paying right away and with positive communication.  



   Sooner or later I will probably get burned...but I guess that risk is a part of doing business online.

I think, given some of his other asking prices, he's more likely taking the brownies, rather than the biscuits ;)



I'm not sure what's worse, the fact the guy is asking $12 for Stonekeep, or that someone's actually bid on it.

I have seen older DOS games go for prices I thought were out of line too. I have an inkling that this might end up being an emerging market. As the computer generation gets older and older they will want to relive the games they grew up on. Look at the TV plug in arcade games you buy in the store. They are now making ones that you plug cartridges into just like the old consoles. There is already a market for older Nintendo games and the like.

Already is; for example AtariAge - Have You Played Atari Today? (check out the number of links...).



The hardware led the way, though, with prices rocketing in the '90s when people finally cottoned on to the "historical" aspect.



Anyone got a spare Xerox Alto going cheap? *sigh*

I knew console games were already there. I have a friend I work with that pays well for copies with boxes and instructions etc. I have not seen as insane prices on computer games yet. But I can see it happening. I went to the point of installing a 5.25 inch drive so I could get the two old SPI DM Assistants converted to CD. Loved those old things.

I'd love to get a D&D pinball machine if there was one for sale in my local area.  But I have no idea of pinball machine pricing so I'd probably "overpay."  I was thinking anything under $1000 would be reasonable for an excellent condition model... is that too much?

Sounds like a fairly sensible price to me...  maybe a shade under, if poss.



(But would it be in too good condition to play? ;))

Nah, I'd have to play a few games so don't make the machine too minty or I'll feel guilty.

I've been a pinball fanatic for 28 years. $700 would be a decent price, but the shipping would add at least $100. Keep in mind, the seller says shipping is the sole responsibility of the winner, so he isn't even going to call the freight company and arrange it for you.

If you really want a D&D machine, most major cities have a vending/amusement place. You might pay a little more, but they can warranty the machine, and they usually are meticulous about shopping out a machine before they sell it.

I haven't seen the D&D one before. I'm actually looking to pick up an Indiana Jones in a month or two.


If you hit a Rowsdower, you get to keep it.
