Despite all of the drama and bullcrap that this thread brings, I'm glad it has provided a good majority of you great deals and items you may not have been able to get otherwise.

My goal for this thread was to bring in new blood and we did for sure yes. Thank all of you for participating, it has been awesome. Especially those up late at night participating... Once we get the rules ironed out for good and there's no more changing them, I hope this thread can one day be a permanent aspect of the site. Maybe one day... We shall see what happens.

Overall, Thank you everyone, even if I come off as a jerk or a bully to some, I only want the best for people who believe in this thread. Let me know if you guys have any questions...

This will run until the end of the month and I haven't decided yet if it'll come back next month. May be delayed indefinitely, so let's go out with a bang!

So you mean to say that there are people actually INTERESTED in things but don't get a chance to dib?

Wow, I didn't think anyone outside of the regulars existed... made me wonder which one of us was hitting F5 thousands of times... over 8k views in the last 30 days... and the thread has only been active for 5? but yet, no interest? how so?

That's cool, and you're entitled to that opinion. Considering you don't know what complaints I actually get... I'm one person running a thread with help from @Lunar and @Dustin ...and you've benefited from the thread tremendously.

if that's your mindset, you don't need to participate. Clearly, something is drawing you back in, however. Right?

I do stick up for you, I even said you provide good steals. You don't bullcrap when it comes to the steals.

However, at the same time, because you DO put up good steals shouldn't make you feel entitled. If you think other people "don't have great items" we may not allow them the chance to show what they have. Remember, @Missile wasn't part of this thread at one point.

That's all I'm going to say.

Everything is awful and the rules are terrible, the complaints have been handled terribly... and yet you've pended 10+ trades in the last few days primarily from this thread. I'm curious how this is? The "pretty awful limitation rules" were in place to deter people from snatching up everything good without giving others a chance. However, the psychological aspect of the better deal coming up was a legitimate concern for most people.

You've seemed to be doing just fine from my perspective.

Actually, some people did say how great that was.

However, on the flipside, how poorly the complaints have been handled? I get complaints, I just don't post them ALL here... and I think more people would participate -- if given the opportunity to get their hands on some steals. Right? That's how participation generally increases.

Not sure why people keep thinking that KOG is putting up trash... I agreed and said he was putting up very legit items and I even benefited from some... It's not even the topic of conversation.

However, is that reason enough to take anything decent that pops up knowing that there have been instances where someone else (newer people) typed dibs right after him and it went ignored? These are the questions i'm being asked that I don't have answers to. I personally don't care what he does as long as it's reciprocated, and it has been. My personal opinion is that he's been facilitating a lot in this thread and it's been super helpful, but, since this is a DISCUSSION thread, I'm trying to engage in discussion. I may have gone about addressing it in the wrong fashion by using the wrong words... but i'm a straight up person.

I do, I'm just not interested in those. There have been other people that will pop in here and there to participate that have decent offerings. We'll see who will show up then.

Really?

That's why? hmm... if you're reading this and you have items to offer, please let us know. Are you waiting for the right deal?
