|Concept: The concept is Pay-It-Forward ... 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 participate... have fun!|
Prohibited items: Free items, items for shipping, any sort of mystery box or lot, pirated items such as: loaded systems, loaded hard drives or memory cards with ROMs on them (NES Mini, Vitas with ROMs, XBox 360 Hard Drive w/ Games), pre-ordered games.
The person beginning the thread will post a steal they would like to offer the community. The first person to claim (or dib) the steal will have the opportunity to keep that steal. They then post a steal that is worthy enough of also being claimed! But, beware!... if your steal is not good enough to be chosen, you may lose the item you claimed! See #3 for further detail once it is claimed!
1.) You will have a maximum of three (3) hours to have your steal dibbed. In the interest of your own time, you should post your steal as soon as you claim a steal. The three (3) hour window begins the moment your dib is timestamped. If your steal is not dibbed within the three (3) hour time frame, the previous steal will again be available. Once the previous steal becomes available, it will only last for one (1) hour and not three (3) hours like brand new steals.
2.) You will be allowed a maximum of TWO dibs to use per 24 hour period! Everyone will have the same dib time frame.. from 8 AM EST to 8 AM the following day. Whether you have used your two dibs or not, you will only have a maximum of two dibs to use for that day (You will not receive 4 if you don't use your dibs for 2 days). Once you have used your two dibs, you will have to wait until 8 AM EST the following day to replenish your dibs... UNLESS a steal lasts for at least two hours (out of the three hours it will last) and does not receive a dib, it will then become a FREE-FOR-ALL! Anyone will be able to dib the steal... even if you have used your two dibs. (THIS GUIDELINE SUBJECT TO CHANGE)
3.) If you dib a steal, please do not pend your trade until the person claiming your steal also has posted a steal that too has been claimed.
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 C posts steal
Person E dibs
Person A accepts Person B's offer
Please do not dib a steal on behalf of another user and you may not consecutively dib two steals in a row in order to "lock in" your previous steal.
Example of what Consecutive Dibbing is:
Person A posts a steal
Person B dibs it
Person B posts a steal
Person C dibs it
Person C posts a steal
Person B dibs it
4.) Only steals posted between the hours of 3 AM and 7 AM EST will receive an extension outside of the previous three (3) hour window good until 12 PM Eastern Standard Time -- or until dibbed.
5.) There is a $15 required steal minimum, and a $100 cap. This means you must post your steal between these two price values (unless given approval otherwise).
Please refrain from requiring payment (publicly) to another user as a stipulation for your steal (i.e: Game X - $20 payable to Jeff). This is to avoid a chain of people all requiring payment to the previous person. You may organize your payment terms in your pending trade conversation.
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!
