5. Do not create a thread whose sole purpose is to advertise an eBay link unless you will be offering some kind of discount to forum members.

I'm pretty sure that only applies to the b/s/t.

Maybe I'm wrong, but hell, the description for the auctions board even says "ebay links".

The quote above is incorrect. Here are the real "rules":
viewtopic.php?f=48&t=19455

I agree with the OP about Ebay vs. forums. I find the forums are great if you have anywhere up to 5 relatively high demand items that you are in a hurry to sell. Otherwise, Ebay is superior. Selling a "collection" on any forums would be insane, unless it is one large lot.

As the other posters have kindly mentioned, this thread was started in the "Auctions" subforum. You are quoting a guideline found within the "Buy/Sell/Trade" subforum which does not apply.


Thanks for understanding, folks, I really appreciate it.

Yeah, it's definitely not something I want to do, sometimes life throws you a curveball, or a few at once. I know I'm struggling with a few right now. And sometimes, we change; it happens. It literally took me months of debating before I reached this conclusion.

I'm sorry I can't be of more service to everyone. I was considering an extended shipping discount to members but now that eBay dictates all shipping charges as per category, "little guy" sellers like myself can lose money on shipping as it is or hardly break even. I guarantee you will be the first to know of what things will be listed before they even are, at least. This will hopefully give you some extra time to decide if the item(s) is something you want/need.

Oh, I've seen that same quote posted in other threads on this particular forum. My apologies.

Noise posts it here sometimes, but I don't think I've seen a clarification on whether it applies still.

Loogs, what are you saving up for that requires this much scratch? Just wondering, since I have an interest in music production/audio engineering.

Ah, cool! Yes, then you do know how much gear truly costs. Amazing what we are willing to spend on our art...

Finally was able to afford a MacBook Pro last year to power the DAW. For starters, I want to finish up my DAW with a Digi 003 (Pro Tools). Of course the 003 Rack is always another (much cheaper) option, so I'm still researching different methods of building custom racks. I have enough soundproofing material to finish a couple 12x12's, and a nice array of Audix mics already. On top of the I/O, I want to add more cymbals (never enough variety there). I cannot believe how expensive cymbals are now versus just a few years ago, because of the cost of metal. Utterly ridiculous expensive.

Secondly, I have been getting really interested in electronic capabilities. Always was against it, now after truly trying to understand it, the possibilities are endless; so many doors opened up. Go big or go home, right? Roland's flagship TD-20 model, one of the most, if not the most, advanced e-kits on the market. Rumor has it Roland will announce a new flagship model at NAMM early next year, and it's well past due as the TD-20 has reigned for years and years (waiting to hear confirmation). Of course an e-kit also allows for night practice or if accommodations do not allow for an acoustic kit down the road. It also entertains my ideas/concepts of combining acoustic kits equally with electronic components, now that will be awesome!

So, basically, this is some big bucks. Lots of big bucks haha. I'm not certain the whole game collection will cover it but I've got other methods of funding :)

Ah yes, I understand, and it seems you're way more invested in music than I am. I just recently bought studio monitors (KRK RP6 G2 SEs) and those broke the bank, but I'm happy that they will provide a decent enough reference for mixing - what I had before them were low-end Logitech surround sound speakers and they aren't flat in the slightest. What kind of music are you making, by the way?


Oh, and just wondering, but would you happen to have any of the games I'm looking for? http://gametz.com/?A=My+Items&desire=wanted&table=Games
