Sometimes a potential buyer might have a question whose public answer benefits everybody who reads the thread. Sometimes the same question gets asked repeatedly, and answering it publicly saves the headache of having to respond with the same answer to 50 PMs. Just putting that out there. Not trying to be argumentative.

AB, I understand your point. Unfortunately, that was a rule that came about because people began to game the system - leaving out key information, etc... in their OP. We made the rule so that the system would work as fairly as possible.

I think that it's a little unfair, so maybe for $1K+ items the 5% drop rule could be reduced to, say, 2-3%?
For people selling $5K items, especially multiple items, a $50/week pinned thread is probably a good idea. Just think of the savings over regular price drops. Unfortunately, stu00a broke the rule nearly immediately after I posted the thread, and I can't overlook the fact that he disregarded a moderator thread at the top of the page that says "ATTENTION - READ THIS". If he feels it worth his while, he can pay the fine and we can all move on. Actually, I'll decrease stu00a's fine to a paltry $100, because I'm feeling generous. I'll PM him later today. If anyone feels like playing white knight, that can do so on my behalf.
