Default Apprently your not allowed to "low ball" in the marketplace.

I recieved an infaction because I have a $600 low ball bid on something that he stated would take $750 for.

I was also told to take it to PMs.

Why would I do that? Why wouldn't I put that offer in the market place just incase in the future he saw it when they weren't selling (they probably will be sold) and think about it.

At first I offered $300 because he didn't put a price and said best offer. He came back with a price of between $750-800 and that was when I "lowballed him" with the $600 offer.


I put it twice because it dissapeared the first time and I thought it was my computer but come to find out it was the mod the first time who didn't think the offer was good enough and was junking up the thread so he deleated it.


Anyone else thoughts on this

My other thought is: "You have already brought the wrong kind of attention to yourself by posting in that thread and you are continuing to post in that thread".

I got the same thing but feel it's a chance for some one to state that they don't want any offers under a certin amount so they will not have to deal with many PM's with low offers. That's what I would like in my listings. But to each thier own.

I was helping out all the other guys that might offer such a stupid low price.

So I thought, or better yet don't put best offer in your first post if it bothers you.

LOL.

For someone who has been here so long, you still seem to be mystified by this forum's inner workings.

Your use of the quote function in your PM to me leaves much to be desired.

Not really. That's just being a douche.

Yes, they should. That way other people don't see how cheap you are. I've added many a name to my Ignore list by just reading other people's offers.

if people see what the offers are they know the limits about how flexable the seller is on his price!

Interested parties do that by asking (privately). For Sale threads are not parades or eBay auctions.


PM's are the most under-utilized feature of the site.

But if you make an offer and you don't see the seller post that he will take it and someone else does you may miss out on it.

No stop making sense here!! I agree with the others. I want multiple low ball offers in the same price range to flood my PM box because that's easier then letting the whole site see that I won't sell at a certain price

the seller can pm you back to make sure you get it. what it comes down to its personal preferance. in all honesty what does it really matter? if you make an offer in public you take risks, so what, that is up to you. it is not hurting the seller at all!
