Quoted from pezpunk:
Create some damn pinside marketplace ads and stop whining.
Problem solved, drama over.
For likely the 100th time I have said this - listings will be coming next year - and next year is less than a day away right now. My original post was to give people a heads up a good many machines would be getting sold in central PA early in 2017 - nothing more & nothing less. Everyone else kept pushing things & I kept pushing back.
The process on my end is going to be simple - Tuesday 1/3/17 (after my holiday guest head home) I will finish cleaning out the garage and start getting ready to list the first batch of machines. By Thursday 1/5/17 we hope to have the first 12 or 14 machines listed.
Quoted from DBLM:
But Skip, they are. It is evident with all of your posts that they are. Please, just take a break from the forums and don't post anything until you are ready to sell. With all the back and forth and changing direction it comes off as very confusing and disjointed. I live close and would be in the market for what you have but with all of the drama surrounding your pins and your ever changing process for selling, I am most likely out now. The juice is just not with the squeeze.
If you want to simplify the process and get pins into hands of people at your price, then simplify. If you want to dick around with people who are either not going to buy regardless or put you through the wringer, keep doing what you are doing.
With most of my post all I was doing was reaching out to the pinball community trying to explain what we are trying to do. I don't want or need top dollar out of every machine! I want to sell them at "fair" prices without having a hand full of flippers buying everything up to flip for more money. I want to share these machines with as many people as possible and to be honest I still can not figure exactly how to do that.
If I price them higher to weed out the flippers I'll be charging more than I want (or need to) charge for some machines. If I do first person to email about each it will keep being a push to find out when I am going to list them and 95% of people on this site will bitch since someone else beat them to a machine, and if I do some type of lottory system most people will claim it was rigged somehow. So I still don't know the answer and I want to be listing machines in 3 or 4 days!
Sorry for another long email! I am not trying to cause a lot of drama or anything. I am just trying to figure out how to be fair with as many people as possible when sharing my luck with them.
