I've waited 3 weeks for some books from someone. Not an issue in itself really but i sent said person a PM yesterday regarding status which was read within a couple of hours. A day later and still no response. Now this person has had some problems in the past so it all makes me a little uneasy
Matt, I hope we are not talking a large dollar amount here.

No, I just got a box of books from someone who was "set up" next to me at the VCC, and they are FANTASTIC, much nicer than expected, well packed, great communication... BadDeacon
I should go put all this on the Kudo's thread...and I will ...but ...I wouldn't lose faith in people, the people mentioned here are really far and few between, we just talk about them a lot.
Just wanted to comment on the above posts.
This board really is the best place to buy and sell on the Internet. Like Sharon said, the few bad ones are few and far between. We just talk them to death. (Not a bad thing.)
Where else do you have a built in support group (okay, we (I) drop the ball every once in a while, but we (I) do try to pick it back up) to congratulate you on a nice pick up or watch your back when a purchase/sale goes off track.
A lot of times we forget just how nice it really is to be able to talk to the buyer or seller of a book instead of just plucking one from some anonymous seller on the other end of cyberspace.
Besides, I challenge anyone to find another group of buyers and sellers with a higher standard of ethics (as a whole) than the ones who routinely buy and sell here.
Okay, enough of the sappy talk. Let's get back to business.

I think that life's too short for this. I want back my ignorance and bliss. I think I've had enough of this. Blow me... one last kiss.
Couldn't agree more Doc. I think what I like most about the forums sales is that it takes the good from online sales (i.e. eBay) and that of the LCS (don't have to buy it over before figuring out what's wrong with it). Of course, it's not always perfect but it is better than "lucking one from some anonymous seller on the other end of cyberspace." The sellers I buy from are always helpful in providing scans and detailed grading notes about their books beforehand; it's a rare eBay seller that will do so. Plus, there's always some great conversations to be had in between sales!
To be fair though (since I know Sharon will correct me if I don't say so ) there are some good eBay sellers out there. It's just the consistency is much better here

Has anyone managed to come up with some kind of "Market Report" for the forum? What types/titles/genres are being sold more than others. Basically a Whats Hot and Whats Not sheet kind of like Ebays listing.
