Apparently potential bidders have just stopped looking at seller feedback.  Creep has a similar amount of neutral and negative feedback and they are all for the same things: 1) Extremely slow shipping and 2) Rudeness.  If you look through a good chunk of his feedback there are a lot of positives that say "extremely slow shipping" or "took 3 weeks to get item".  It would be easy to turn a lot of these into neutrals and some even negatives.

His shipping prices on books is ridiculous IMO, his BIN's are outrageous, and he is a jerk to boot.  It is too bad people like creep and cougar are still in business.  But if no one cares how they are treated by the people they buy from, their crappy business practices will continue.  You know both of them probably read these threads but do they give a shit?  Hell no!

Creep and Cougar can choke on their H1's and R series.  I will continue to buy from people like badmike and beyondthebreach who actually give a damn about their customers.  Let the idiots of the world buy from guys like this...eventually they will be burned enough times that they might smarten up.

Yup. I probably don't make nearly as much money as either does doing the same thing, but at least I sleep well at night :)

I'd like to nominate myself for being a dumbass - http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5237239687



I was afraid I wouldn't be at my computer in the final seconds (lots going on around that time), so I figure $65.57 will surely make certain I win this auction and the auction for MM9:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5237239663



Apparently someone wanted MM9 a bit more than me, and then wanted revenge for my outrageous bid so he jacked me up to my max on MM3.  :(



The worst thing is, I didn't think there was any chance of getting outbid on MM9, and I only wanted MM3 if I got MM9 too!  :(  :(



ah well, somedays you lose.

Not too high yet, but take a look at his feedback and I am not even refering to coastiemike either. He is really starting to take a beating for slow shipping times. It seems Mr Creep, seems to be selling itmes that he doesn't even own yet, thus the out of stock BS. :roll:

Ya mean other than the fact it's Creep :) Yuk, Yuk.



But seriously, wasn't the opening bid kind of high for these products?

Well, creep sure has some funny ideas about making the quick $$. But with 2000+ and a 99.6% rate I'd never have checked his feedback before placing a bid. (Not that I bought anything from him.) I think the R/RPGA-modules in his store are not really for selling, more like a show-off (to make him look like a pro who has the good stuff).



I think I paid around $50 for my own set of Encyclopedia Magica, so I hope it's not considered too high  :wink:.

I sold a batch of Encyclopedia Magicas myself earlier this year and it seems like I got around $70 for them.  (But I did start them at a buck and had a bit of a bidding war if I remember correctly)  =)

Frankly, given Creep's selling volume, I'm not surprised his shipping is slow. He's ran more auctions in the last month than most members have run in a year (or ever). Stupid move listing more than you can ship quickly, but an understandable one.

Did anyone else notice how the Greyhawk Suppliment is tucked further under the next book.   Suspicious? Paranoid?   Maybe, but with his documented history of "upgrading" books after he purchases them.   Call me crazy . . .  :)

Is it just me or do a couple of the modules that are meant to be in s/w in some kind of other plastic? I guess they could still be in s/w as well, but looks a little odd.



(the middle two on the lower row & the end two on both rows on the left for example seem to be a plastic that is far larger than the modules).


Mount Celestia doesn't want me and Baator's afraid I'll take over.

I mean...I'm happy to have gotten this much...in fact the guy's already paid...but geesh...these things are beat up...not even any dice or original paperwork...and not like they're in short supply...I was just hoping for $5.00.  :?:

Maybe not the most ridiculous price of the year, but I was sure suprised!
