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 DO NOT PEND YOUR TRADE UNTIL THE PERSON CLAIMING YOUR DEAL HAS POSTED ONE UP OF THEIR OWN AND IT TOO HAS BEEN CLAIMED! THIS THREAD IS ALL ABOUT RECIPROCATION. IF YOU GET A GREAT STEAL, YOU MUST PROVIDE A GREAT STEAL. PLEASE NOTE: I HAVE THE RIGHT TO INTERJECT IF WHAT YOU OFFER IS NOT ON THE SAME PLAYING FIELD FOR WHAT YOU DIBBED.
YOU HAVE SIX HOURS FOR SOMEONE TO DIB YOUR STEAL... PLEASE HAVE YOUR STEAL READY SHORTLY AFTER CLAIMING A STEAL. YOU MUST POST YOUR STEAL WITHIN ONE HOUR AFTER DIBBING, OTHERWISE WHATEVER YOU DIBBED WILL BECOME AVAILABLE AGAIN. IF YOUR ITEM SITS, PLEASE ALTER YOUR STEAL IN ORDER TO MOVE IT. LATE POSTS WILL HAVE UNTIL 12 PM EST TO BE CLAIMED. Exceptions made for steals posted after 3 AM EST to 7 AM EST.
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.
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 all, have fun.
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...
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
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:
Am I allowed to call dibs for @BleedingViolet on those Amiibos since he wanted them but he's not on? And he can post a steal when he gets back on (as long as it's a reasonable amount of time from now)?
If so, dibs Amiibos. If not, totally understandable.

Baten Kaitos Origins - Gamecube - Includes both discs, Case, Art, Manual. Good Condition. - $18 shipped USPS First Class.
A bit more detail on the condition - Discs are in very good shape. Some very slight water damage to the art insert, slightly more to the manual. Manual is a tiny bit crunchy but all pages open without issue. Everything looks very clean, only noticeable once you start closely inspecting things outside of the case. I'm at work so I can't provide pictures, but this copy sat in my collection for a long time and i have decent standards when it comes to Gamecube games.
iunno. It seems to me that even plus only, in this particular case, wouldn't be much better than allowing negs, as any post without any plusses would seem "bad", even though a lot of REALLY good steals only got 2-3 plusses.
