In my experience, humor is the only way to get people to actually read the dreaded wall of text.

Thank you for all the kudos, all. This is an idea that I have been kicking around ever since I started weighing in on the debate on changing B/S/T rules.
The PSTV is amazing.

@Flake - is your back getting sore?

I would only offer one minor criticism - i'm personally fine with potato chips mixed in with my games. There is no better surprise in life to think you have an N64 tab rattling inside your cart...open it up and no sir, it is not a broken tab, it is a yummy surprise!

Also communication is key. Let the buyers know when you expect to ship, the date you actually shipped, how you shipped it, delivery estimates, etc. Don't just say here's my paypal and let a box show up on their step 10 days later because you shipped parcel post from NY to California. It's frustrating not knowing the status of things, at least for me. Other than that your guide was very comprehensive and well-written.
