We are going back to the original way!

Just that now there is a check and balance system so I can legitimately call someone out without feeling bad(Actually, I don't really feel bad)

I don't feel bad. I don't need a Mod Squad badge to call out a bad offer.

No mod squad badge. No multi-person dibs.. One dib and that's it. Original way. Just having no more mystery bundles, no free items.

They're back to the way they were. We saw pretty fast that more than 1 dibber doesn't work.

@Jeff If we have the same issues as before, will you consider banning gift cards and digital items? I feel like those and mystery bundles were about 90% of the problem last time.

I think it would have worked, just not how it was implemented. You should have just allowed multiple dibs and if it happened then use the vote system.

I hope you guys approve of my steal. The Pay It Forward thread didn't work out, so I had it available again. I paid $90ish in an auction, so I'd imagine it's worth over $100 on Ebay. I hope $45 is good enough to qualify as a steal.

I'm sorry, does someone crapting on you when you buy a "mystery box" excuse throwing our pendings into the dumpster for a month, losing the item you offered up and making me settle for something newer of equal monetary value so I could quickly sell it and try to recoup what I lost? raspberry

Like, I said I trusted that you'd do better in the future (and I certainly hope you treat your guys in the relaunch better than you treated me) but downplaying what happened is about the last fudging thing I'd be doing. I would have just dodged the post since it was fairly harmless on its own.

No reason to dodge the post. You are blowing it way out of proportion. I was slow to ship, but you got your dibs. You ended up with Nioh instead of Link to the Past. You have nothing to gripe against except that I was slow to ship. Let it go.

There was the whole thing where you really didn't give a fudge, too. I'd say it's all relevant to the topic at hand. Yes?

You weren't simply "slow to ship". You mislead me several times and I had to BUG you to even get any communication, which generally just got me more lies. Like, you were about a week away from a BTR, I'm not sure why you're dismissing your behavior so easily or pointing at someone else when I'm talking about you. And why you'd expect that I wouldn't still be a bit miffed.

Mmm, by your own admission you took advantage of at least me during that mess.

I mean, you couldn't be surprised that I wouldn't throw a LITTLE bit of crap your way after you jumped right back into the thread when it opened up, right? wink

Let me help you with that.

on 10-Apr-2017 at 11:28am KingofGames Absolutely. I go through stretches like this. Typically the more involved a shipping process is, the greater likelihood I will slack off. I had to find my thin CD cases for the DC games, and then the LttP find/misplace really applied the icing to the cake. We'll deal again and I'll be much better, promise.
on 10-Apr-2017 at 11:25am DiamondDave It's okay. Just glad it's over, lol. This was very uncharacteristic of you, which is the big reason I was disappointed, but you'll do better next time I think.
on 10-Apr-2017 at 11:24am KingofGames Sorry shipping was so slow on these. I still don't know what I did with LttP. Thanks for being patient while I neglected the trade.
on 10-Apr-2017 at 11:14am system Trade is complete.
on 10-Apr-2017 at 11:14am DiamondDave I have received.
on 10-Apr-2017 at 8:31am KingofGames Shipped on Saturday! I'll get you the tracking shortly.
on 10-Apr-2017 at 8:18am DiamondDave image
on 7-Apr-2017 at 3:42pm KingofGames I put the case in an envelope, but the disc is still in my system. I am a failure. It's going out tomorrow. Guaranteed.
on 7-Apr-2017 at 8:49am DiamondDave ?
on 5-Apr-2017 at 9:52pm DiamondDave Since leaving you alone hasn't yielded positive results consider this your annoying reminder. You can do this! Game in envelope! Go go go!
on 5-Apr-2017 at 6:31pm DiamondDave ok.
on 5-Apr-2017 at 6:21pm KingofGames Sorry man, had some festivities the last two days for my birthday. Tomorrow.
on 5-Apr-2017 at 5:10am DiamondDave Did this already get out or is it getting out today?
on 3-Apr-2017 at 4:45pm DiamondDave Going through them right now to make sure they work, found a few games I didn't hate that surprised me.

Appreciate you getting on this, even if it was a couple weeks later than I'd hoped. * smile *
on 3-Apr-2017 at 4:43pm KingofGames Yeah, sorry. I meant to message you Saturday. To put things in perspective, I have sold and shipped 116 items on Ebay the past 31 days. Between my full time job, family, relationship, and Ebaying, my free time is virtually non-existent. Ebay peeps won't wait, so you unfortunately took the brunt of the damage. I know GTZ peeps are cool, but I did take advantage in this instance. In any case, thanks for your patience and understanding. Hope you enjoy the DC games.
on 3-Apr-2017 at 4:41pm DiamondDave Definitely. * yes *

I don't hate your guts, this has just been an emotional roller coaster, lol. I bought a Dreamcast to play this stuff on that I've been sitting on since the 22nd, and then it finally came in and I was like YAY and then I was like "...wait"
on 3-Apr-2017 at 4:40pm KingofGames I can get it out tomorrow. Will you hate my guts a little less?
on 3-Apr-2017 at 4:36pm DiamondDave ...I mean, yeah, I'd do that. Lol. I'd be silly not to at this point. Thanks. Can you get it out soon?
on 3-Apr-2017 at 4:35pm KingofGames Do you hate my guts? Would you accept Nioh in exchange?
on 3-Apr-2017 at 4:33pm DiamondDave ok
on 3-Apr-2017 at 4:32pm KingofGames I'll send you a pic of my garage. * wry smile * I had it in my hands and I set it aside. The problem is, I buy stuff daily pretty much. So now it's buried under something else. I know, it totally sucks. But that is legitimately what happened. Sorry for being such a pill.
on 3-Apr-2017 at 4:29pm DiamondDave But you said you found it in the D.C. Trade...? Ugh haha
on 3-Apr-2017 at 4:27pm KingofGames Sorry man, I couldn't find it Saturday afternoon and I didn't wanna delay any further. I'll send it to you as soon as it turns up. I'm off Wednesday so I should be able to locate it then.
on 3-Apr-2017 at 11:07am DiamondDave I hate to ask, since this was supposedly the whole reason that the DC bundle got held up in the first place

but did you forget LTTP?
on 20-Mar-2017 at 8:41am KingofGames I gotta track down the LttP, but once I do I will have it and the DC bundle your way.

Other trade

on 31-Mar-2017 at 9:32am DiamondDave ok
on 31-Mar-2017 at 9:32am KingofGames I have been nothing short of awful, sorry man. I may need til Saturday, but definitely then. 100%.

on 27-Mar-2017 at 9:04am KingofGames Absolutely.

on 27-Mar-2017 at 9:01am DiamondDave Yes please, this and Zelda. * smile *
on 27-Mar-2017 at 9:01am KingofGames Sorry man, I was out most of the weekend. I can definitely have it out tomorrow if you still want it.
on 27-Mar-2017 at 4:48am DiamondDave If you decided you don't wanna send feel free to give a refund, I'm fine either way
on 25-Mar-2017 at 1:51pm DiamondDave Juuuuust checking. Got a lot of pendings where nobody's updating shipping status! I start biting my nails when this happens, nothing serious, I just don't like doing it. * wink *
on 21-Mar-2017 at 12:07pm DiamondDave Sounds good, sorry, forgot we had two pendings.

You take all the joy out of taking a crap on you publicly man. :(

It was relevant to the topic but you kept having to have the last word. Super unfair, Koggy. You still haven't let us know if you're still going to de prioritize Steals, and it sounds like you're stacked with other responsibilities.

Can I get a "I promise to ship out future steal deals in a timely fashion as originally agreed on with proper communication!", or is that too unreasonable?

I agree.

Anyway, yeah, I can see your guys' points, but I still feel like maybe you're underselling it a little. I guess it would depend on whether you count it as a lot or individually, condition, etc., but it seems to me like a console (assuming it's in good condition) with 2 first party controllers also in good condition (again, assuming) would go for quite a bit on Ebay and the games maybe more than you'd think. Now, I haven't sold in a while, so I could be wrong, but I feel like it's about what he could sell it for vs what he is selling it for. Maybe it's not a "steal" by our standards, but I could see how one would think so, and I do think it's pretty equal discount wise (dollars not percentage) as what he got. Now again, that's not all that makes a "steal," so I could see both sides. I'm just saying.

That bundle won't sell for $100 shipped outside of the thread. I'd be surprised if it sold at $80. Controllers are worth maybe $10 if sold separately but prob will take a while to sell. SMAS is $15 all day. The other games I'm assuming are toss ins. Maybe a few bucks. I'm also just going off of top of my head here so it could be wrong.

The last 3 clean systems I found sold on Ebay (minus any games) were in the $70-80 shipped range with one controller. I agree with $10 for another controller, so that's $80-90ish on Ebay.

Now, again, maybe his system is also yellowed up. Maybe his controllers are third party. Maybe he's shipping media mail. I don't know any of these details.

Here's a system with 2 controllers and SMAS that sold for $95 on Ebay recently.

http://m.ebay.com/itm/Super-Nintendo-Bundle-2-Cont...

The other stuff easily brings it to $110-120. MK is like a $10 game and the other one is like a $20 game.

I think his steal is fine logistically but I also don't think it will get dibbed. Part of the problem is that the SNES is a common system, one that I would imagine most users here that are interested in older games already have (if not more than one). Add to that the fact that it's not too difficult to find one for less and I just think it's a tough sell for GTZ. If it were say, the same value purely in SNES *games* I think it would have been claimed within minutes.

KingofGames
GameTZ Subscriber 500 Trade Quintuple Gold Good Trader Has Written 2 Reviews

The values you guys are assigning are a bit low. Someone suggested $30 for an SNES with 2 controllers and 3 games? That's crazy, considering shipping is about $15. Mario All Stars & Dr. Mario/Tetris are each $20 games. MK is about a $10 games. An SNES with 2 original controllers is $60, even more in better shape. It's definitely at least $100 in value before shipping. So yes, if you would like me to reword it, I will do $55 plus shipping. Show me a similar bundle in that price range and I will adjust further.

@KingofGames You are totally fine with that offer imo, I just think it's a tough sell in this kind of setting (collectors mostly). A clean working SNES is easily $60 even with one controller selling locally or on eBay.

Sorry if I sounded like a douche, your deal was fine, especially factoring shipping. Gtz prices tend to be a bit lower, so it's a toss up.

The skyward sword deal is definitely legit IMO.
