I've noticed that every once and a while members of the Pit like to list links to Ebay auctions that they have going on or auctions that might interest members of the pit. I'd like to see a thread specifically designated specifically for this purpose... what does everyone else think about this?

i know I'm guilty of posting some of the stuff that I have on Ebay... We could even break it into a couple of categories... Such as Ebay Items for sale by members... and another one for interesting items on ebay (Star Wars related etc.)

Is this a good idea?

Whilst I don't buy anything off of ebay, I think this would be a good idea, just as long as it doesn't breach any legal things, like when we had the pdf sharing thread.

I agree, although I'd really like to know what Loc Taal (The Super Site Admin) or any of the moderators has to say about it! I just don't want to turn it into something thats spammish in nature! But rather something where fellow Star Wars fans can share stuff that their selling with the group!

I think that it's a good idea. I'd much rather know that I was getting a good book from a gamer than some jerk who's overpricing a book and tagging every item with "RARE!!!" Laughing

On another note, is it alright to post a list of extra books we have for trade/sale for other pit fans? Stuff we would not sell on ebay because we don't believe in gouging? And where would we do so?

I think this is a good idea. I'll work on getting a specific section setup for buy/sell/trade. I may set it up so that it's private to registered users, so people who haven't registered can't see it. That may prevent some spam/bot problems. What are everyone's thoughts?

That looks like a good idea - but also include a disclaimer Wink (Buyer beware)

I agree with this idea. This is a target audience that you not only CAN sell SW books to, but they are people whom you'd WANT to sell them to: People who will use them and love them just like you did.
