That's more of a 'golf clap' Yoshi. I do not know if he counts.
The PSTV is amazing.

I don't know if he knows the alphabet, either. How much are we supposed to gather from a GIF?

It's okay, we forgive you.

Flake on the other hand, unfairly accusing the man in the background of being unable to count? That's just wrong.

Great tips! I wish a couple other sites I used to frequent *cough*SwitchPlanet*cough* had some stuff like this for the not-so-experienced traders.

I've said this before, but I feel like it deserves to be repeated.

If you are in the middle of trying to work out a trade with somebody, and for whatever you reason you have a change of heart -- maybe you don't like their offer, maybe you just decided you want to keep yr stuff -- then TELL THEM THAT. I have to say that probably my biggest turn-off that any potential trader can do is just stop responding to PM's. This is incredibly rude, and can sometimes cause great inconvenience. Say I'm looking for a certain game, and I'm thinking "oh it looks like I'm gonna get it from this trade through DCLives11_11_11" but DCLives has decided he's lost interest in our trade, so doesn't bother to respond to my offer PM. Now I'm sitting here and watching eBay auctions end for said game because DCLives was too inconsiderate to just tell me what's up. GRRRRRR /vent.

Totally agree with you on this. It doesn't apply to trades but to any sort of transaction. It's really not a big deal to just tell someone that you're no longer interested or whatever.

Secure your DVD / CD based media

What's the best way to securely ship a lot of loose game discs? Use individual cases or use one of those CD binders? Or something else?

(I'm not trying to put a plug in for my sale thread but I do have a lot of loose discs that I'd like to know what the ideal method for shipping is.)

Maybe CD sleeves or those slim jewel cases? I think both are pretty inexpensive and would keep discs in place during shipping.
