It may be handy to find a few trust worthy people interested in having access to update the original post also and help organise, but that is up to you. It may also be handy to have a thread related to this named something like "Swap-Meet Price List" and have general items and how many credits they are worth (as a beta at first, to see if everyone agrees that prices are fair), again, just an idea.

Yes, I'll happily give access to the spreadsheet to a few other trusted members. I was going to just handle it myself for a while and then if my interested started to wane down the line I was going to pick someone who had been actively involved and give them editing privileges on the spreadsheet. Though at any time I'd happily give access to any Mods who wanted to step up tongue.gif

Could you expand on the Price List idea? I'm all-for this being a consensus decision, I'm just not clear on how best to solicit people's opinions on appropriate pricing.

Well I would start off with the list being generic, as you have listed in the original post, but expanded and put into a spreadsheet within the forum (easy to read) like you have done for the item listings.

Just an idea like I said, I have done this in the past for virtual items over a game and the price list seems to go well for people, especially when it got very popular.
There just needs to be fair credits given to certain items or people may get very annoyed and the whole concept goes out the window

Anyway that's enough of my advice, I really don't want to clog up your thread.

I just got word that the guy whos grabbing my 8650 also needs ram, so I'm going to throw up my 2 sticks of DDR2 (its either 2x1gb or 2x2gb, cant remember) for him to grab, for the record I'm going to include it in the small flatrate box going out tomrorow to him, no extra shipping cost

8650 and RAM are mine. I'll put up another item as well. A wired Xbox 360 controller (painted black) with a Xbox to USB adapter for the computer. Gone to TriBeCa

I don't understand why everyone has to make so many restrictions on these. If it's a "pay it forward" type thread, there is no need to assign a value IMHO. That value may differ from person to person. Why bog everything down with this? if I NEED something, even if it's an old out of date part, it might be worthwhile to me to swap off something of greater value to get what I NEED. I understand the need to keep those who are greedy in check, but overly complicating things just adds unneeded work for the OP. Also, these credits seem arbitrary. There is going to be grief and discrepancy with one person "assigning" a value to items because not everyone is going to agree on the value. IMHO, it should be up to the community to police the thread. If someone requests an item, the "seller" can check the OP and if that person gives away paper clips all the time but requests a CPU, the "seller" can say no based on the fact they haven't given anything away. The "seller" should have the last right of refusal regardless.

Perhaps if people are set on this credit or valuation of the items, the "moderators" of this thread or "seller" (assuming they have access) can make an appraisal thread to get a "value" for the item. Let the thread run for x amount of time and average all the replies. That would be their assigned "value" for the item and the amount they can "spend" on an item in the future. That way it's not one person setting the value, but the community as a whole has the chance to weigh in on the value.

I think people should have to have at least something on the list to get something and they should have to have given something away to be able to pick a more valuable item. Granted, this is going to be tough with the thread in it's infancy but to keep flippers (people who get freebies just to re-sell) and greedy people in check, I think it's fair.

I'd be open to help so long as nobody objects and I have the free time. I plan on unloading stuff myself but I need the time to dig it out and catalog/inspect it. I have enough junk though so I really don't "want" anything. Though if something comes along that catches my eye I wouldn't mind the opportunity to grab it where the last thread was too restrictive in this manner.

I'll take that, presuming you meant Xbox 360 controller

I'm going to do something like this for a range of randomly selected items. I'll set it up later tonight or tomorrow. That way it can be used as a guide for assigning value to other items, and the whole community can weight in on it.

I do agree though, I never really wanted to expend this much effort discussing the value of different items--the idea is a give-something / get-something.

People do have to have something on the list to get something, but they do not have to have already shipped an item to get something unless they have little / no history on OCN. We need to take people at their word in order to get enough items and stuff up on the list and claimable. I'm really happy with how quickly things have gotten going, and if a few more people get involved we should have a nice big list of stuff for newcomers to pick through.
