    "Repeat, sleep, eat, gamer, game"

    Aren't those the crap yokes you'd see in Argos and Lidl that have rubbish emulation? Pretty sure the Mega Drive Mini was still for sale fairly recently for anyone who wanted one (must update the ROMs on mine!)

    AT Games made them or something?

    Is this really what trinitrons are going for nowadays? not even a pvm!!

    I'm blaming youtubers on this - this model is nearly identical to one I got for free in 2014

    Not really, I picked one up for €30 a few weeks back. I see them regularly enough for around €30ish.

    whats worse about this is that it looks like someone’s buying it?

    a 1 slot, a box and 3 easy to get games €400

    Was that not for sale here recently?



  • Registered Users Posts: 3,975 ✭✭✭ CathalDublin


    Wow, that’s bad form.

    even if you say the games are worth €20each (that’s generous as all 3 are on eBay right now for €10each with 0bids and minutes left on auction) that would still not raise the price from €200 to €400

    !!!! Jesus, not cool. Not even two weeks ago.

    I really cannot stand that kind of ****.



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,581 ✭✭✭ BGOllie


    jeez. I've had that happened too. I stopped putting up for sale here since . It's such a shame as all of us putting stuff for sale here are genuinely trying to cut a deal for someone who's gonna enjoy it as opposed to flip it a few days later .



  • Moderators, Category Moderators, Computer Games Moderators, Society & Culture Moderators Posts: 33,844 CMod ✭✭✭✭ CiDeRmAn


    In fairness as sellers here it is up to us to decide who we want to sell to and, if someone disappoints, just don't sell to them again.

    Perhaps Optimus can write something for the charter to that effect, that flipping is not fair play.

    The mod sets the rules, so it's up to them.

    I've always tried to abide by the first offer first person to deal with rule - however if the first offer comes from someone I don't want to sell to then I won't sell to them. I hope nobody would feel obligated to sell to someone they didn't want to deal with. I've dealt with enough loons on adverts over the years to now vet who I meet up with from the internet to do a deal with. In fact on a few occasions I've actually withdrawn the ad rather than have to sell to to the person with the first offer.

    How about something like the following? I know it leaves a bit open to interpretation, but I think we're all grownups here and by and large, have been able to operate in the sales forum without too much issue over the years.

    "The First person to make an OFFER on thread is the first in line - please follow this rule as it is a cornerstone of the boards.ie sales forums.

    However, do remember that ultimately, the Seller has final choice on who to deal with"



  • Moderators, Category Moderators, Computer Games Moderators, Society & Culture Moderators Posts: 33,844 CMod ✭✭✭✭ CiDeRmAn


    Well, we don't have a feedback system and the marketplace is supposed to be fairly informal.

    If a seller is not interested in moving them onto someone who will only flip them, then perhaps they should say so in their initial post.

    If, on the otherhand they don't care either way, they don't have to mention it.

    I'm not sure how to phrase it but it will put the seller in the driving seat.

    Of course, as the mod you would have to be prepared to stand over a dispute when a known person with bad form in the past offers the asking first, but the seller won't sell it to them.

    I know, as Cat Mod I would stand with you but there would have to be an expectation that this does not give licence to someone withdrawing from a sale just because a better friend comes and makes a late offer, despite an already agreed sale.

    So, fair play is needed from everyone involved.

    Sounds perfect

    A big thumbs up on this. Hopefully this brings this forum and the marketplace back to life a little bit, feels that since the big boards changeover things have got a bit quieter.

    There is such a difference to me between someone that flips something after a few days to just make profit and someone that decides to move on at a later point. It's always interesting to see people giving a bit of the history when they decide to move things on. How many items being sold here have had 3 or more owners that are/were regulars here. People are always going to have to move things on, numerous reasons, lack of space, lack of use etc but it's always great to see a glimpse of it's life post sale in a random post (for those that attend the beers this is likely more obvious and likely a large part of the conversations).

    Hopefully! I've got some great stuff on the marketplace here including a couple of serious bargains that make me happy every time I play them.
