On to the RULES...

Concept: The idea is a Pay-It-Forward concept... getting great deals to offer up great deals. This isn't an opportunity to offload your unwanted junk...If you attempt to do so, you will be unable to participate in the future. Don't feel anxiety to compete... post up what you have! The community may want your steals!!! Have fun with this. Please see the "Original Concept and Process" at the bottom of this post for further detail. Thank you

One person will post a steal up for the community, the first person interested will dib that steal. They will then post up a great steal of their own, and once that steal too is dibbed, they can pend a trade for the initial steal they claimed. Original rules apply! First to get it wins!

1.) BRONZE STAR OR HIGHER ONLY. IF YOU ARE AN INTERNATIONAL DIBBER, AS A COURTESY, YOU SHOULD OFFER TO SPLIT OR COVER THE COSTS IF THE PRICE OF SHIPPING IS UNREASONABLE FOR YOUR SHIPPER TO COVER ON THEIR OWN.

2.) YOU HAVE 3 HOURS FOR SOMEONE TO DIB YOUR STEAL... PLEASE HAVE YOUR STEAL READY SHORTLY AFTER CLAIMING (dibbing) A STEAL

3.) PLEASE USE THE SCORING SYSTEM TO VOTE IF YOU THINK THE ITEMS OFFERED ARE AN AMAZING DEAL!... MESSAGE THE REVIEW TEAM 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!

4.) LATE STEAL POSTS WILL HAVE UNTIL 12 PM EST TO BE DIBBED ON. Exceptions made for steals posted after 3 AM EST to 7 AM EST.

5.) THERE IS A $15 MINIMUM, A $100 MAXIMUM UNLESS APPROVED OTHERWISE FOR ALL NON-GIFT CARD ITEMS... YOU CAN POST VIDEO GAMES, SYSTEMS, BLU-RAYS, ETC... DIGITAL ITEMS ARE ACCEPTABLE. FREE ITEMS, ITEMS FOR SHIPPING ARE NOT PERMITTED. THERE ARE ABSOLUTELY NO MYSTERY BOXES, LOTS, ANYTHING MYSTERY IS NOT PERMITTED. IF YOU OFFER TWO UNCLAIMED STEALS (NO DIBBERS AT ALL FOR 3 HOURS), 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.

6.) IF YOU COPY AND PASTE THE SAME STEALS OVER AND OVER, YOU WILL BE WARNED. MIX IT UP.. MAKE THIS STEALS THREAD EXCITING!

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!


Original Concept and Process -- PLEASE CLICK...



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)

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

How it should be:

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"

Since it's been three hours, does the steal revert? Cause I'll break my rookie status, and dibs the PS4 bundle if it goes back up.

There's a $15 minimum, and the last guy had literally the same item not get dibbed for 3 hours so you may want to add something or give another option.

That much of stickler for rules? Maybe that's why it's running so poorly. Take it then, enjoy, I retract since I didn't say the proper word for it even though my intent was clear.

It seems like he dibbed without saying, but we can defer to the committee on this one.

Naw man I think you got it.

No need to retract, we can see what Jeff says. But you did say "dibs"

I think dashey just wasn't sure. Wasn't trying to be a dick or get technical.

I'll pend you the bundle and you can offer your steal.

No doubt I'll be putting up more bundles including an MK8D option again anyways...

Problem is even if he did call dibs he is offering the EXACT same thing that went unclaimed. Might as well let Dashey claim the deal.

That's true.

But may as well let him change it or add real fast, we want more people involved and he was game to play.

So let's do skyward sword plus something or change it up.

Or he can defer to Dash if he really doesn't have anything else or whatever, makes no difference to me personally, but I like the idea of giving a chance and not making this weird for anyone.

lol I'm not a mod though but looks like it's Vynidaris' dib. Bad attitude aside and maybe needs to read the OP, he dibbed before Dashey.

Yeah, I think it's him too. He just needs to make SS $15 and probably should add something solely based on the last one not moving. Otherwise, I'd say it's fine.

Normally, I'd try to take things to the discussion thread, but this is holding up the flow.

If he really doesn't want it now (bad taste or whatever), then Dashey should get MK8D instead.

I would say He got it... True he didnt just type Dibs on PS4 Bundle.. but he was just making sure if it went back the the Bundle since the last steal expire..

I seen plenty of people say something and around the end of the sentence - they say dibs.. like
"Gosh I should say no to this. but I am going to Dib on the" blah blah..

Just my two sense



And honestly.. I would have been all over that PS4 bundle.. Great bundle and for 15$!?!?!?!

Thanks, I try to keep the value high in this thread.

Dash I don't think there's any issue doing that bundle in the future, I just don't want to restart the clock since we've all kind of reached a sort of consensus.

I'll be posting that MK8D again for sure since it seemed to be popular. Maybe I'll offer up a Splatoon 2 preorder too.

Are we OK on preorders? Because that's what the MK8D steal is anyways...

Once it goes back dashey is probably gonna dib the MK8D unless someone swoops in and takes that or the PS4 deal on the dot and spoils dasheys night.

Otherwise I'll put up an SNES bundle at some point as well as some others.
