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:
Agreed Jeff, one more off-topic post right quick. Post #255 Steal, Post #305 Steal #2, my post should now be #376. One dib in 121 posts...took a long time to catch up on the "super light" action today.
I guess I'm getting called out for not having a good steal? The reason I didn't offer these at a huge discount is because I looked at values of the ds lite there is several on ebay with a couple of hours left with no bids for around $20... so I'm offering my items at a $8 loss. Which would be essentially like paying $28 for the ds. So all things considered I'm losing out on this or just breaking around even..... Also that is the reason I haven't added any more items like I usually do because if It gets reverted It's no big deal to me.
WiiU Pro Controller (Black) (excellent shape) $20 Shipped
Pick any one of the following for $5 Shipped
Y Sealed NEW (Security Seal up top) PS2 Games: Gungrave Overdose Maximo Army of Zin
Batman Arkham Knight with Harley Quinn/Scarecrow Missions/Story Pack (Sealed) PS4 Batman Arkham Origins (complete/excellent) case is the preorder Steelbook WiiU Dead Rising 3 (complete/very good) and TitanFall (complete/very good) XboxOne
Your logic is fine here IMO. DS systems are extremely common, I wouldn't value one over $20 with a charger. When I get them with large game lots, I usually just dump the systems on local stores here, because it's not really worth shipping them and dealing with buyers.
MGS5 ground zeroes - free Or The order - free Or Dying light - free Or The Division - free Or Take my remaining ps3 games mgs4, uncharted 3, saboteur(disc only) & Batman arkham asylum(disc only) - free
Sorry everybody but this is basically all I have to offer at the moment. Need garage sale season to start and try to load up on some stuff specifically for this thread.
The thread has been great so far, I do feel like we've depleted our resources, or items willing to be offered.
I've decided to only do this once a month and will be closing down the thread until further notice. In order to preserve some sanity for those who check everyday, and for those who don't have much to offer... running this every month seems to be a good call.
I will also be revising the rules and making sure that when it does return, it's better than before.
Thank you all for participating and I'll see you all when I decide that we are good to go for our next round.
We'll get it started small for now, im sure it'll work it's way up. Remember there is a $15 minimum now... First two dibbers must edit their post with their steal. If you are after the first 2, please delete your dib post to reduce clutter. We will vote for the best steal, and after 30 minutes (once the final steal of the two are updated, the time will start.) Highest +'d post will be the current steal.
Thanks in advance
Mario Kart 7 3DS (complete), Mario and Luigi Dream Team (cart only) - $15 for both shipped
That's up to you guys. We can end it after a certain time and the one dibber will be the only one by default (which might be better)... I figured this would happen, and we would address it when it came up. Since, nobody wanted to "be the first because they got nothing in return" ahem...
What do you all think? End it after 30 mins of no other dibbers?
I'm good with giving some time like dash suggested..if you feel 3 hours is too much maybe 1 or 1.5 during the day since a lot of people probably have less frequent access. let people see that it's back up and let people get on their lunch breaks or off work.
Of course, im open to giving more time... let's see where it goes! It's a pretty good deal IMO.. I was thinking maybe an 30 mins, an hour, or 90 minutes would suffice if we only had 1 dibber. Of course, the more sought after items won't sit.
> Ya I was like ooh my son has been wanting both of those so perfect timing
> Thinking about trying out some xbox love for my post we don't often see alot of that
Think we see a flaw already, waiting on others to dib, isn't the ticket. TM dib he should be allowed to post his steal, doesnt mean it will get picked someone else still can dib and post, but if his is good then it will get dib and we can move forward, think this is what whitefire was saying in the discussion thread
TM Xbox love would be nice, I will say on another note Paper Mario Color Splash has me hooked, took the 2nd day of playing to grow on me now on my third day its a winner for sure.
