In light of the recent blow up of prices on our wonderful server, I think it's in order that we make a trading thread. If you have any gear that you wish to purchase/sell, post it here and I will make a list, sort of an advertisement type list.


Buyers:

Armor
===========================================================
Allakhazam name = The One and Only namttar
FFXI name = Salogel
Item needed = Peacock Charm
Price offered = 6 Million gil
===========================================================
Allakhazam name = rapierdwit
FFXI name = Rapierdwit
Item needed = Emperor's Hairpin
Price offered = 300,000 gil
===========================================================


Weapons

This section will be updated as need be.



Sellers:

This section will be updated as need be.

This is a good idea, however I'm wondering if creating a website w/ the items people want to sell/buy would be a good idea?

If anyone would like to see this I could put something together.

This way people could see what's being offered / requested and the asking/selling price.

Kind of like a website auction house, there are a few open source auction type systems I could toy with, of course you'd want to make the trade in person and not sending though the AH to avoid scammers .

***This website would NOT be for real money, only for ingame gil! ****

edit: added auction house idea

This server forum is dead enough, why not keep it here? ^^ And besides, gives me something to do when there's nothing going on in the office :D

Woot! Thanks DeadlyScorpion, you cared enough to remember me. =P

This is an awesome idea. *EDIT* I removed my pricing limits because I got my hands on a Kingdom Aketon. You can drop my name from the list. Though I still think its a great idea.

Updates made, if you have any other items, no matter how useless they may seem, just post it up here, you'd be surprised at how many people want Royal Footman's bandanas to level their lower lvl chars, it might be garbage to you, but it might be gold for someone else.

Congrats to the IDIOT who paid 450k for a hairpin yesterday on Siren. I guess a jump of 100k in 2 weeks wasn't enough.

This is going to be **** on earth to keep updated...good luck to that one. Though, I think Allakhazam is already working on a system to already have this done. They had a sticky on the main forum asking for World Passes for ALL the servers.


Wait and see how that turns out, unless your aiming at Bazaars with this.

I think this is a good idea, but theres only one problem. Say I want a Snipers Ring for 500k. Thets nice and all, but I doubt anyone would wanna pass up the extra 100k+ they could make by selling it on the AH.

You raise a valid point. I wouldn't blame someone for saying they need the gil for other things and want to get as much as they can for it.

On the other hand, this forum seems to be frequented by some good people. Personally, had I had the opportunity to camp VE and get a hairpin, I would have happily sold it to Rapierdwit for the 300k offering price.

Why? Because I can still remember when hairpin was 200k. 300k is still a very generous offer for what I'd be selling. What's 150k between friends? The item has no real value aside from what we assign to it.

What I find about the AH is that prices can go way up because of the anonimity of the procedure. Much like you will find people behaving in the game (or in these forums) in ways they would never behave IRL, you'll find people listing things higher on AH than they would offer to sell them to a friend/LS mate.

This forum has the ptoential to become like an open-door offline Linkshell of sorts, and I think this thread is a great way to promote that ^^

Not going to continue with this thread, this will get really hectic. I'm going to just stick to the Guildmaster's post and update that regularly.

I agree with Aurelius - and thought that was the point of the thread. I consider those of us that frequent these forums to be a community of sorts... amd I wrong?

And if we want that community to be strong, why wouldn't we help one another out?

Now, I wouldn't necessarily ever expect someone to sell an item they paid 400k gil for, for 300k... but if say, for instance, you were quitting the game, or simply giving up on a certain profession and starting a new one that won't really ever need the Hairpin that you bought months ago at 200k, why not sell it to a person here for just 100k profit and make someone's day?

You don't have to, and no one would think any less of you if you didn't, but they would sure think highly of you if you did.

Anyway... that's my Smiley: twocents.
