IN ORDER TO PARTICIPATE, YOU MUST HAVE A (BRONZE STAR) OR HIGHER... IF YOU WISH TO TRADE INTERNATIONALLY YOU MAY, BUT IF AN INTERNATIONAL USER DIBS YOUR STEAL, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO REJECT THE DIB.
PLEASE USE THE SCORING SYSTEM TO VOTE IF YOU THINK THE ITEMS OFFERED ARE A STEAL OR NOT... MESSAGE ME 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!
Scoring currently put on hold.
*YOU HAVE 6 HOURS FOR SOMEONE TO DIB YOUR STEAL... PLEASE HAVE YOUR STEAL READY SHORTLY AFTER CLAIMING A STEAL. AFTER 2 HOURS IF YOUR ITEM SITS, PLEASE ALTER YOUR STEAL IN ORDER TO MOVE IT. LATE POSTS WILL HAVE UNTIL 12 PM EST TO BE CLAIMED.
Otherwise, once 6 hours pass, the original steal you previously had dibs on will be available again and you lose your opportunity to re-claim. If you offer TWO unclaimed steals, 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.
Exceptions made for steals posted after 12 AM EST to 7 AM EST.
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
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, that's fine.
Once you agree to a deal (STEAL!), you must then offer a deal (STEAL!) of your own...
MAKE IT A GOOD ONE! STEALS ONLY... IF YOU ARE BUYING STEALS AND ONLY OFFERING SPORTS GAMES OR LESSER SOUGHT AFTER TITLES, YOU WILL BE WARNED ... THIS IS NOT AN OPPORTUNITY TO OFFLOAD YOUR JUNK...USE THE FREEBIE FORUM IF THIS IS YOUR INTENTION...Please only list one item at a time... Options are OK as well (i.e Game X on PS1 or Game X on PS2
Unclaimed Steals Guacninja (1)
Shopping at GameStop for 48 hours... (Reversed their dib)
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"
Examples of Deals Made so Far... 1.) Jeff sold Phantasy Star 2 (cart only) for $13 shipped to @Tad 2.) DiamondDave gets Tad's DOOM for $10 + ship and offers a PS3 bundle for $60 shipped! 3.) Yooka dibs the PS3 Bundle and offers - LittleBigPlanet 3 (PS4) New and Sealed and Perfect Dark (N64 complete) with the option of Freedom Wings (DS) Complete and Whiplash (PS2) Complete... 4.)

Thanks all, have fun.
This topic had many older posts which were moved here:
Need a quick opinion here: I have a psp 1001 model with a laser that still works but might be dying. According to @NightOwl he said that people would be interested in it as a steal. Would it be considered a good steal here? for yes, for no.
> He did say he was going to pass, but he isn't on right now.
I know but if he does want your games I will claim his movie. He's had some great steals and this one was good too. I wasn't going to make too many more trades here but I don't mind buying this movie from him. And if he says Dashey can dib your games and he's passing on those then that's cool too. But I will give him a chance to get something he wanted and clarify. That was a lot of negs and those are not cheap movies. He's been great for this thread and I'd rather not see him leave like that.
Also @Dashey post your steals anyways just in case so you can get some interest in case he does pass it to you.
PSP 1001 model (laser might be dying but still plays games from what I've tested) with a 32MB memory stick and I'll throw in any of these 2 games. All are cib
300 March to Glory Rapala Trophies Socom: Tactical Strike Socom: U.S. Navy Seals Team Bravo Socom: U.S. Navy Seals Team Bravo 3 Star Wars: Battlefront Renegade Squadron Star Wars The Force Unleashed Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas
well, pope had 6 hours until his bid was reversed, it has been 6 hours, hasnt it? so by the rules, it reverts back to previous steal. he knew that, if he isnt here, i think it pretty much means he passed on his dib
LOL, this should be called the over complication thread. It's only been 4 hours since Pope posted. This happens almost every time a steal is close to reaching the limit and someone asks what does it revert back to. Then that gets posted before it's valid, someone dibs off the old list which isn't active yet and right after that someone comes back with okay I'll take one of the current items. Boom, here we are again.
If @The_Pope passes to @Dashey then I will claim Dasheys 3ds games instead
Super Mario 3d land and Pokemon super mystery dungeon both cib - $5 shipped-dibs
Or if he doesn't
That way either one of them can have the gba games and they both are covered and I will have to post a steal either way and Dashey can offer up the Psp again later.
Edit: my reasoning is if I claim both steals then whoever wants the other steal (luminous's gba games) can have it and I can post the one new steal either way by stealing either one of their steals and figure it out with the other two guys later but in the meantime there will be a definite steal up and the thread can keep moving.
Can we please cut down on the extra chatter? I don't mind brief discussions, but, if we're talking to the point where we don't know what the current steal is... that's an indication things need to simmer down a bit -- especially for those on mobile.
Since @The_Pope dibbed and changed his mind on Luminous' GBA Games, he has to wait 48 hours (per rules) before he can participate again (can post again 7:36 am EST - Saturday 3/18).
BleedingViolet's dib is invalid since there is no steal from @The_Pope.
Dashey was up since he was next in line to get the GBA lot. He posted the PSP lot and DS games:

@BleedingViolet dibbed @Dashey 's DS lot
he posted Amazon credit,
@Lunar dibbed it
Super Nintendo Lufia and the Fortress of Doom (Cart + Manual in custom case) - $35 shipped
Nintendo DS Dragon Quest IV + Infinite Space (Both Cart Only) - $10 shipped
Nintendo 3DS Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance + SMT Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers (Both complete) - $15 shipped
There we go. That was a lot... please do not take back your dib, you add further complication to the thread and restrict yourself for 48 hours... Lunar's steal is the active one as of 8:30 AM EST.
@Lunar you were big on changing up steals, especially if they go unclaimed the first go-round. You've posted a couple of those items twice now, and if I'm not mistaken the last time you posted that Dragon Quest + Infinite Space bundle it was $5 + shipping...which would almost certainly be less than the $10 shipped you're offering it up for now.
It's still really good stuff, though. I just have zero retro systems...not counting my Raspberry Pi
I imagine Lunar is, if nothing else, not feeling particularly ...inspired? Lots of offers, even REALLY good ones are getting crap on. This is probably one of the most negged threads in GTZ History and the base-line here is "50% or more off/free"... lol.
I used to be like MAN HOW CAN I ONE-UP MYSELF, and now I'm like everyone else, "Well, what can I get away with, how can I fudging SQUEAK by". Those SNES carts I just boxed up? I farted on them. they smell like farts.
> Yea, just realized I'm OK with my deal go unclaimed. No matter how much I discount,
> the deals will just end up back at the bottom again. #FollowingThePope
You have great deals, I'm not really sure what people are looking for, but the thing to understand is this isn't the freebie forum, nor should things be given away for dirt... a steal is still a good deal where the seller makes a little bit, but probably half off, or maybe a little less than 50% off.
Either way, your steals are great. I just think the right person hasn't gotten to it yet.
Well, if this thread dies because people neg what they don't like, rather than it not actually being a steal (which it is) then so be it. Can't stop the inevitable. I'm here to help support the thread and keep it going, but if that's what's going to happen, then we can close the topic. I'm here for you guys.
You should really disable scoring in this thread. I understand the thought behind why it should, but there's just too many cheap asses here for it to work as intended. People are expecting too much. It started out where $10 PSN for $3 was a steal and people would snatch it right now. Now it's getting crap on. I mean, it is GTZ, home of some of the cheapest people around, but still. It's detrimental to this thread. If no one claims a steal, that person will know their steal isn't that great.
