    Quoted from robin:

    I hear you guys, I miss that feature too! The problem is in the software and needs serious time to fix this.
    So I have been thinking if it is worth that effort or I should just build another price check feature. The old price check was based on finished Ebay acutions. As most of us know, Ebay is not always the best indicator of pin prices. Maybe we should have some sort of crowdsourced pin pricing index? Where we, the Pinsiders - or at least a subset of trusted Pinsiders - would be able to input our guesstimates for what a game is worth. All inputs would be open and therefore abuse would be easy to spot. As always, I'm open for thoughts and ideas

    From someone that works in the automotive industry, we work with resale values all the time. We have a program that scrubs the internet to draw vehicles that are the same make, model, trim and compares prices based on mileage variances within a range from the dealership (250 kms - unlimited distance) to allow a reasonable sized sample of the market to determine average value. Of course it would be more difficult to draw pinball ads from a given area using craigslist/kijiji or other pinball forums but if something could be written to do that it would help us all determine what the average asking price is for a pin in the current marketplace.
