Er, this is just a very tiny idea...maybe it's stupid, but please don't tear my head off...

Maybe there could be a "Selling Tiki" area, separate from "Collecting Tiki"? Where ALL individuals, regular TC members and strangers who have interesting Tiki stuff for sale (NOT corporate entities, eg "The Time-Life Books History of Tiki Twelve Volume Set" or whatever) could post tiki-related items they have for sale without necessarily needing to become involved with the social aspect of TC...

I hear someone saying "but then fifty million people will try to sell things here"--true, maybe they will. But they're already bothering us, right? And then we could either ignore them or buy their stuff, and in any case we could avoid tedious threads like this one!

What I mean is, if it was a separate topic/thread/whachamacallit from Collecting, those of us who receive TC via email could choose not to receive it at all! and those who peruse the board online could choose to simply not look at it!

(And established TC members, eg Midnite, Mrsmiley, BK and so forth, would know that, if they preferred, they could just put their sale stuff in Collecting Tiki without risk of offending anyone.)


Because, frankly, I don't need someone to ingratiate themselves to me and become my email pal to simply sell me something I like. And maybe I don't WANT to be Raven77 or whoever's pal. Maybe I don't have time to read all their "hi, I'm...blah blah blah" introductory posts. Maybe I just would like to know what they have for sale, and if I don't want to buy it, they can go away without further wasting my time.


As SCD says, just my 2 coconuts...


Is there any merit to this idea at all? Maybe this could help deal with the problem constructively.

no kill i said the horta,

Tikivixen, Hanford,
I think the "Selling Tiki" forum is right on. I was halfway through a post recommending the same thing when I read Vixen's post. I really feel sorry for the well-intentioned when they get torn a new one for wandering into TC and doing what they think is following the right protocol. I, too, dislike the cases of blatant spamming, but the "shoot first, ask questions later" mentality needs to be curbed.

OK, I'm done now.

-JTD

Raven77, Suburban Hipster (and everyone):

Please refrain from discussing any "medical condition" aspect of the thread. It has nothing to do with the topic at hand.

Thanks,

Hanford

This will be the last reply to this "thread"



I honestly apologize for any wrong doing.
I meant well, but obviously I was wrong.
You will never hear from me again, as I have asked to be removed from this forum. I wish everyone well. Good-bye

Matt, Congratulations on your successful Ebay auction. You not only got your BIN price, you managed to sell the set to a buyer that already purchased the Blue Miles print from another seller. They say there's a Shag fan born every minute.

The first auction appears to have fallen through, but here's attempt number two. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=3532705584&category=20147

I still think that individual auctions and pics would be helpful.

Raven77:

Now who is "the ugly person writing the ugly messages?"

I also am leary of those who feel they must resort to a sob-story to excuse their behavior.

Lastly, have you ever considered that many of those on this board (like myself) already purchased their Shag prints at the Night of the Tiki opening?

I'm not a hard-core Shag fan., but am still interested in your prints. I don't know what they look like unfortunately. Some pics would be the only way that I could consider them.
Thanks.
MC
