I'm leaving the hobby - who will win my parts?
#1011494 - 07/29/05 01:33 AM

Wow, just checked my messages. MSDS headers must be very popular with CEGer’s!

The rest of this will make sense if you read the thread "I am leaving this hobby - anyone want my parts" and then check the classifieds for the MSDS header sale.

I've had a whole bunch of questions asked of me. Here are my answers (you can guess at the questions).

1. No, this is not a hoax

2. Yes, I intend to sell all these parts in a similar manner in lot sizes having significant retail value.

3. No, I will not accept more than $1 for any sale I make. Offering more will ensure you do not win the part(s)

4. Yes, you may pay me when you receive your part, I am not going to ship to anyone anyway that I suspect might rob me of shipping costs plus $1 (!)

5. Yes, the order that I receive PMs does matter in that I will be looking at post history in the order I receive PMs. The enthusiast who best meets my criteria (posted with the ad) when I tire of reading will receive the part. I am not that picky and you probably already know if it is not worth your time offering to “buy.”

6. I will post these classified at times and intervals designed to rob needy CEGer’s of any possibility for sleep. Just kidding.

7. I will send a PM to the winner asking for a shipping address within a day of posting the classified ad. Probably much less than a day.

8. Yes, a history of making cash contributions to Lance for maintenance of this site (or at least an offer to do so in the future) will count heavily towards my decision! But I really don’t want this to be about the money so the amount is not a big deal (say $20?). Actually, no one asked this question…


Watch this thread for the words "Check the Classified" if you are interested.

I have a winner on the "MSDS headers new in box" classified ad. Please do not send me any more PMs on this!

The next item is: well if you are curious, you will have to wait until you see me post “Check the Classifieds” here.

All I see is expensive parts selling for a dollar or two. How do you play the game or "win"?

No need for you to "make" a funny face.

You know, when I first saw the MSDS headers listed in the classifieds, I was a little bitter because I'd missed out on the chance to nail them and I had really wanted them. But you know what? This is a really cool thing you're doing. It's reminiscent of a guy I know through paintball who had one of the best collections of custom gear I'd ever seen, and one day he posted that he'd had an epiphany and gave about 2/3 of it all away for nothing to random paintballers online, sort of like how you're doing (first come first served, if he felt they deserved it). Anyway, JED, I hope you have fun with this.
