1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

B&S Etiquette: Buyers not making offers but instead asking what your lowest price is

    I'm only going to say, that as a buyer, if I'm really interested in purchasing your items and have cash on hand, I will offer a number.

    If I'm fishing for a good deal on a maybe item or something I don't have the money for today, I beat around the bush with something like "whats your lowest price".

    So if I'm looking to buy something, I'm mostly wasting our time if I ask something like "whats your lowest price?". I'm not really going to buy it. But that's just me....

    I try to catch myself beforehand on stuff like that, but occasionally one of those still slips out.

    Basically= if you don't bid, you can't buy. A bid can be negotiated, a non bid can't.

    i get asked "what is your best price" a lot when i sell my stuff online. Usually I just tell them, the price I listed is the best price for me. You have to tell me what the best price for you is.

    You're obviously a shxtty negotiator because you fell for the oldest trick in the book. It's like recruiters asking about your salary history and expectations. Don't blame them for checking to see if they're dealing with a sucker. Just stop being a sucker.

    Umm I feel like it's obvious, but since it seems you don't understand such matters, a person can only be banned AFTER he signs up. In other words, he needs to sign up first, then post annoying responses, and only then can the mods ban him. Nice try though.

    Hopefully that was helpful towards your understanding of the internet.

    It's funny. All the people who asked me for my lowest price stopped responding as soon as I said I'd only listen to offers.

    Wow...With just a few words, I made you respond, think for a few minutes and then respond AGAIN. I know that I'm good, but dude, you're OBVIOUSLY trying too hard. It's a little embarrassing. Let's just move on...problem solved.

    Umm...my second response was regarding the topic of this thread, not about you. It's always good to read closely before you say anything :)

    I guess that's good for you, but now you have fewer people to negotiate with about your items for sale.

    True, but I think this just shows that the majority of them are time wasters. Garasaki admitted as much. I always inform them nicely (I think) that I operate my sales based on best offers like ebay, and there is no response.

    Oh I thought you were giving up and moving on? You know you've run out of ideas when you come up with the exact same comeback. I'm studying for boards, so this is providing me with some needed side entertainment :lol:.
