Dec. 14, 2014 - Just a quick update.
Lots of stuff going on at the moment that keeps me from being attentive to GameTZ messages and offers. With that in mind, please don't take it personally if you don't receive a prompt reply to a trade proposal or a private message. In the strictest sense of the cliché, it's not you. It's me..
Older members may have noted that some items had an "Austin/LA" mark in the item's description that dictated where a given item was located. All items have returned to the Los Angeles area.
With all that being said, please do not hesitate to send offers or private messages. My replies may be late, but they're usually respectful.
Oh - and if we do agree on a trade, here's a couple of notes:
1. Sending Frequency
: Because of budget cuts, the local USPS presence has been reduced to two offices that are ridiculously packed during all hours of the day. Because of this and my M-F work schedule, I can only ship on Saturdays
. Unless otherwise discussed, we will both ship using Priority Shipping
with a USPS Tracking
2. Who Sends First?
Great question. Over the years, people tend to assume that the more trades a member has completed, the more trust you should give them to send first. I believed in this too, for years, until I had to file my first Bad Trader Report
on a member with an otherwise stellar trading record. Because of this experience, unless otherwise agreed upon, I ask that we send at the same time
3. What if it's a cash transaction?
Another great question. If I'm selling, you send money first. If you're selling, I send money first.
Thanks for looking!
