The Review Team will determine if a steal needs to be revised, or if further action is needed. Any questions about a steal, you can message me or one of these great users below! The Review Team has the right to interject at anytime if needed to help regulate. We do not pre-review steals, veto or judge them...the thread should flow normally and we will only step in when necessary. These members are still able to participate in the thread. If you would like to assist, send me a PM!
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 to and up)
Once you agree to a deal (STEAL!), you must then offer a deal (STEAL!) of your own...
How it should be:
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"
This topic had many older posts which were moved here:
White DS4 (I won't be able to ship this out for a while though, unfortunately, as it's at my brother's house) + Rayman Legends (complete, VG) + $10 PSN card- $15 shipped
I hope the PSN card was ok. I wanted to sweeten the pot but not make it just a card either.
If this isn't worthy, just let it revert. I totally understand. I want to keep these deals going strong. I don't think it's that great. Maybe it's better that it reverts, honestly. I think I jumped on this one too fast, but I don't want to be a dick and just flake on you guys either.
Dang..that controller/rayman/psn card us talking to me.. but I've gotten a couple things already I'll give someone else a chance for now. May get in there later if no one does but I've gotta get to bed soon work early so I won't be able to watch my posted steal and revise etc.
I like them, maybe look at revising the prices? or adding smaller items to sweeten it up. Remember what website you're on, unfortunately. A great deal is still not good enough to some. I haven't had to intervene yet because all of the deals being offered have been great thus far.
Ah fudge it I'll dib. I figure (mostly based on what DD told me) that it's a good deal by around $100. So with that in mind...
Sega Nomad (with a power adapter if needed, if you already have a genny M2 power supply, please be honest) Tatsujin MD cart (Truxton for those not familiar with the Japanese name) you will need a Game Genie to play this. I don't have a spare Game Genie (gave away my last spare to a friend) but they are like $5 In fact if whoever dibs this wants me to, I can pick up one locally, there is a store here that has them in huge bulk. Phantasy Star II Thunder Force II After Burner II Toe Jam and Earl Panic on Funkotron (label wear) Wiz n Liz Arch Rivals
Edit: Would like to add a stipulation of whoever dibs putting up at least $120 worth of stuff (discounted appropriately).
I've looked around. I don't think I have $125 worth of stuff I'd be willing to offer. I've given away too much already and don't have that level left. I didn't see that comment and was just more thinking of offering a great steal (IMO) that someone might like. I'm going to try this and see how it goes. It's really all I have left at the moment that I'd be willing to give up for the nomad.
160GB PS3 (good physical condition except plays digital only, disc reader is broken) + two sixasis wireless controllers + Rayman Legends (PS4) + $20 eshop
$15 shipped. If it needs to revert, I understand. If I broke any rules, I'll take the suspension.
I'm thinking of a couple more options I wanted to post my supa boy with a game but it doesn't work as perfect as it should so I can't stand behind it.
Also thinking a mini GameCube bundle with a game or two or the vita tv I got from last month with a game. Maybe my 3ds or a nes bundle. I'm not sure yet. But I'll probably just post the new options and edit out the old ones. But I gotta make sure I even want a ps3 I have to fix that bad first.
> I almost took as id happily use it as a digital only box but ive got 2 ps3's someone
> who doesn't have one should get it and benefit from it.
I have another ps3 already that doesn't work properly I mostly wanted the eshop card lol and at least this one works for digital content which the other doesnt. And I really wanted make sure he got that nomad. He practically gave his genesis away after all.
I totally get where you guys are coming from. I almost wish I hadn't dribbled without thinking it through first. I was going to offer a small system bundle at first but then I would have to look around the house searching through boxes to make sure I can put a good one together. If it reverts I guess at least more people got a chance to see whitefires steal and he shouldn't have a problem getting dibs. It's a great steal at 15 bucks I just don't have a ton of money to fix it right now. Maybe I'll offer my 3ds for a bunch because I want one of the purple ones anyways.
