Is it wrong to discuss pricing in for sale threads? Or is it only OK if you are commenting that the price is “perfect”?
If you comment that you feel the game is overpriced, is that “shitting on the thread”?
If you feel that a pin is overpriced, you should be able to speak up without getting berated. If you feel like the pin is spot on, or under priced, you should be able to speak up as well.
I believe that if a thread is started for a For Sale ad, it is OK to discuss how you feel about the price (or game condition, the seller, etc.).
A few other pinsider’s thoughts on the subject:
Quoted from ita47:
I have never understood why some people feel the need to get on others for sale threads and criticize the game, the mods, the color of the powder coat, or the PRICE.
Quoted from TheLaw:
Because, for the 800th time, it's a forum and if you don't want it in the forum you can just put it in the marketplace.
Quoted from pinlink:
It's not a "scumbag move" to comment about price in for sale threads. It's one person's opinion, it has no more or no less weight than other's comments about the price being "perfect".
Quoted from dmbjunky:
It's still not a scumbag move to talk about price. That's what these for sale threads are for. If seller doesn't want a thread they don't have to create one.
Quoted from Whysnow:
maybe link some actual sales? Remove your opinion from it and let the numbers talk it you think it is overpriced or people should 'do some research' which goes without saying.
Quoted from kklank:
This ad was posted in the Forum.
Forum by definition is a medium where ideas and views are exchanged.
So anything that is posted in the forum is open to discussion, good or bad.
I think the question should be why would you ever post a for sale ad in the forum. Seems unecccesary but what the heck why not.
Quoted from frogman70:
Why do people need to give their opinion of a game in a for sale post??????
How do you feel?
