IN ORDER TO PARTICIPATE, YOU MUST HAVE A Bronze Star (BRONZE STAR) OR HIGHER... IF YOU WISH TO TRADE INTERNATIONALLY globe YOU MAY, BUT IF AN INTERNATIONAL USER DIBS YOUR STEAL, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO REJECT THE DIB.


*PLEASE USE THE SCORING SYSTEM TO VOTE IF YOU THINK THE ITEMS OFFERED ARE A STEAL OR NOT... MESSAGE ME IF YOU HAVE ANY CONCERNS, DO NOT POST THEM HERE... PLEASE DO NOT PEND YOUR TRADE UNTIL THE PERSON CLAIMING YOUR DEAL HAS POSTED ONE UP OF THEIR OWN AND IT TOO HAS BEEN CLAIMED!*


*YOU HAVE 12 HOURS FOR SOMEONE TO DIB YOUR STEAL... PLEASE HAVE YOUR STEAL READY SHORTLY AFTER CLAIMING A STEAL

Otherwise, the original steal you previously had dibs on will be available again and you lose your opportunity to re-claim. If you offer TWO unclaimed steals, you will be unable to participate in the future. IF YOU DELETE OR RESCIND YOUR DIB, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO PARTICIPATE FOR 48 HOURS. BE SURE YOU WANT THE ITEM YOU ARE DIBBING.



This is the order you should be posting your steals, sending and accepting offers.
Person A posts steal
Person B dibs and sends pre-accepted offer
Person B posts steal
Person C dibs
Person A accepts Person B's offer

Thanks whitefire!


I had an idea... if it doesn't work, oh well.. but, it won't hurt to try. It'll also be a good opportunity to make some trades (you should be making 2 trades... one buying, one selling if everything goes smoothly).

My idea is the first person will post a deal (Me in this case)... Item + price (Condition is a must) within reason. It must be a deal. Not a $50 game for 47 + shipping... etc. Prices must be shipped.
Please try to keep the items below $100 value We don't want people posting "deal on MacBook Pro for $800" that way the cycle will not be blocked. Unless you are offering an absolute steal for an item over $100, please do not do it. What makes this fun is the randomness of items that can pop up... they can be anything.

Please review all of your resources (eBay, Craigslist, GameTZ, CAG... whatever... just make sure what you're offering is
a steal)

If you have less trades, you still send first... basic site rules still apply no matter what. If you are comfortable sending same time (gold stars Gold Star to Quintuple Gold Star and up, that's fine.

Once you agree to a deal (STEAL!), you must then offer a deal (STEAL!) of your own...


MAKE IT A GOOD ONE! STEALS ONLY... IF YOU ARE BUYING STEALS AND ONLY OFFERING SPORTS GAMES OR LESSER SOUGHT AFTER TITLES, YOU WILL BE WARNED ... THIS IS NOT AN OPPORTUNITY TO OFFLOAD YOUR JUNK...USE THE FREEBIE FORUM IF THIS IS YOUR INTENTION...Please only list one item at a time... Options are OK as well (i.e Game X on PS1 or Game X on PS2

Unclaimed Steals

Example:

I post Phantasy Star 3 - Genesis (cart only, fair condition) for $10 paypal shipped

@billy wants my Phantasy Star 3 for Genesis for $10 shipped... he then posts "dibs on Phantasy Star 3"

the first person to post "dibs on X item" gets the item. Please clarify what you are getting dibs on to avoid confusion. If you are the first person to post, you must send that person an offer for the item immediately. The deal giver must verify that this person is the first one to post dibs and then @billy has to offer a steal of his own...

He offers Pokemon Gold for $15...once someone takes that deal, @Jeff can now accept the offer for Phantasy Star 3... and the cycle will continue. If he knows for sure he is the first one to get dibs, he can post his deal right after... so on and so forth.

Someone else should then say "dibs on @billy 's Pokemon Gold"

We'll see how the topic goes.

Examples of Deals Made so Far...
1.) Jeff sold Phantasy Star 2 (cart only) for $13 shipped to @Tad
2.) DiamondDave gets Tad's DOOM for $10 + ship and offers a PS3 bundle for $60 shipped!

4.) ResqTek dibs Yooka 's deal! and he offers Weeds Seasons 1-5 on Blu Ray. Seasons 3 and 5 are still sealed (BUYER PAYS SHIPPING!)
5.) KingofGames dibs Weeds Seasons 1-5 on Bluray Disc and offers Pokemon Silver and Sapphire for $10 shipped
6.) Geewiz dibs KingofGames Pokemon Silver and Sapphire and offers a Wii U system only 32GB (fair condition) for $50 shipped
7.) Whitefire dibs the Wii U system and offers Mario Kart 8 Wii U (Complete, VG) for $18 shipped.
8.) Lunar dibs MK8 and offers a PS3 bundle for $75+shipping!

11.) Whitefire claims Pathlesscookies' bundle and offers Wii U pro controller for $20!
12.) Dashey claims the Pro Controller and offers Lego Star Wars Force Awakens PlayStation 4 + oBher freebie games

Is it ok to implement silly rules? For example, can I say "No dibs until 8:42AM, PST"? So any dibs before are invalid, and it's a race to see who can get their dib in closest to 8:42AM?

I doubt theres a problem as long as its 8:42 (minutes away) and not something like 12:42.

Any rule on your steal is valid because it's YOUR item and you are trading it how you want to so yes that gives more people a chance to see it and try to steal it I hope you do implement that rule. I like it!

I'm pretty close to calling it quits myself. There have been some legit steals, of which I have claimed twice, but there have also been a boatload of crusty deals lately and I am not alone in thinking that. This thread started out great and then when word got out in came the scavengers. When the same items seem to be going up over and over unclaimed its a cue that nobody wants that stuff. There have been numerous times people have had to step in and mercy dibs to keep it rolling, unacceptable. If this happens more than once its time for the boot.

@KingofGames

in order to avoid people spamming or whatever, please post: "Now you can dib"... after you post your steal. In order to dib, you must type "Dibs on __ for X dollars"

in that order. If you just type dibs, your dib won't count.

Please note: this is only for this offering, not the entire thread.

Remember, to dib you must say "dibs on ITEM for X price"

only for this steal.
