Wow! I agree with you Dave. Most people don't realize that it is easy to send pics in a pm.....it is just like posting a pic in a for sale thread. I do it all the time.

On the flip side I always love when I list a WTB for a very specific item and end up getting flooded with PM's that are nothing like what I was looking for.

I'm sorry seller, but I asked for a TC6.1 only roller. I said this was the only car I would even consider, but I sure do appreciate your offer on the Traxxas T-maxx with the kick butt Pro-line Road Hawg tires for onroad. I am quite sure the track will let me run that in the VTA class.

I'm busting up at this thread Ah the art of negotiation. People need to watch more Pawn Stars or American Pickers


I love this tactic - "I can get a brand new one for $xx so please consider my lowball offer"

Another good one:

WTB X

send PM with price and get asked for pics.

pics sent then PM returned will you take less?

People are still asking will you take less? What I get is "What is the least you will take?" Generally for me it ends up being about double what the most they will pay is. I have a formula for it now. Seems to work on forums and craigslist. Least I will take = 50% less than I paid. Most they will pay = 50% less than I will take, So (This is where it gets good) My actual take on item is 25% of what I paid -Paypal -Shipping -Packaging supplies -Time and Fuel, Grand total for answering the ad = not enough to get a cup of coffee at 7-11 on my way to the freakin post office.

AWESOME

I like it when someone is selling an item and they put "I'm looking to get $150-$250 for this item." Who in their right mind would pay $250 when you admit to the fact that you'd sell it for $150?

I have an RC18T that I'm selling, so I'll sometimes ask people looking for a mini-t or even a mini 8ight or MERV if they'd be interested. But a T-Maxx for a TC6.1?

Don't matter what your price is, I can get it on stormer for 150 dollars, (actually $165)...so all I can offer for your brand new one is 80 dollars...?

Has this ever happened to you in real life? It seems to happen all the time here.

Guy1 walks up to Guy2:
Guy1: Hi, how are you?
Guy2: Doing great. You?
Guy1: Turns around and walks away.

Guy2:??
I'm sure you get the idea.

It even happens with kin. There's a guy on here who I know I'm related to, but I must have scared him off by giving him my grandparents names. We had traded a couple PM's until he ups and stops responding. I wrote him last week after a few months and he's ignored it. Maybe it's a Hatfield/McCoy thing. His great-grandparents must not have liked mine or something.

Ohhh I live 30 minutes from a huge online etailer, will you take less for something new you have, since you already have it for less than what they sell it for? Look up the etailers price, ok its what he says, but in big red letters says: out of stock.

20 minutes later... ohhh I just bought some parts will you take $20 less than what you offered it to me for after you went and looked up the price and found it was out of stock and I can't get it for that price anyway?

IGNORE LIST! I wish I could publish my ignore list
