So on the 19th I recieved this letter from amibay's   AndyLandy

__________________________________________________________________
Hiya Claw,

First up, I'm sorry about the way things have been handled at Amibay. There are certainly a few things that need to be discussed to how we'd handle this over there, but I guess things could have been handled better.

Anyways, I just wanted to say that if you are still interested in promoting this stuff on Amibay, we'd like to help, we just need to find a way that's mutually acceptable.

Essentially, Amibay is a sales portal in its own right, not just a forum, and we're keen to see sales handled 'by the book' as that's how we provide peace of mind to our members. I hope you understand where we're coming from.

I certainly appreciate what you're trying to do here, it's really great that you're thinking of the community here and I'd like to see us help you in that quest.

If not, I wouldn't blame you, things have been handled rather shabbily, but we are here to help if you'd like to try again.

Best wishes and good luck with the sales, whatever you decide to do.

AndyLandy, Amibay Dev and Administrator.

Went there a day or two after still didn't have access sent him a  message asking for permission to get back on there.  and now it says I'm Banned with the time to be lifted set to Never.  

I really can't believe this.  I would just like to get a straight answer from someone over there.  I'm a little upset that I didn't even break one of their rules and moved it to a different forum to please them and then they ban me for it.

Wow.  I can't believe Amigians would treat eachother this way.  Well its been something thats plaged Amiga for all of its existance why should it change now I guess.

Maybe someday people will just work togather insted of aginst eachother.

Peace to the community!
Claw

ROTFLMAO!

"Something that has plagued Amiga for all its existence".... yep, you're right. Price gouging on Amiga and C= items has been around for quite a long time  ;)

Claw: at the bottom of Raymond's (cellarsites) ebay auctions, he has the tagline

"About Us: We are a nonprofit corporation  whose mission is to spread technology to those who are typically  underserved in the technology field.  Your purchases help to further  this mission. "

Is he really nonprofit and trying to liquidate to avoid tossing in the dumpster as you originally advertised on all the forums ?  All the comments others have posted about outrageous prices, is there anyway he could come down to a more realistic price on two 1084s monitors?  

For $125 I would expect to pay for units that have been refurbished with Retr0brite and a recapped chassis.  Your video presentation makes me wonder the condition of hardware.

Looking at his sold auctions over the past few months his 1541 drives were selling for $10.  Since you advertised he is trying to get $50 out of them, when there is about 20 others going for $5-$13 ?

You have the whole community covered with these forums, but he is alienating everyone.  Nobody is willing to fall for the "RARE / VINTAGE" 500% markup

* CDTV external Harddrive an SCSI Controller
* Bigram CD (that one with the optional 2 MB Fast RAM expansion)
* CDTV Emprom Flash Card

Would it be possible to check for any new SSI or Avalon Hill titles he might have in stock for either the C64 or the Amiga?  I noticed some on the shelf when you shot that footage a few weeks back.  I'm especially looking for Geopolitique 1990, Ripper, Dr. Ruth, etc... Thank you for your help.

Found what your looking for seeing if I can find the power connector and get it ready finding out if we have the stuff to test it for you.

If you can't find the PSU, I can live without it. I'll make my own bigfoot type of setup for it. Give me an idea of price this way?

Just checked your eBay listing and found the GVP sidecar for $105.00.
Thanks, but no thanks Maybe some one else will pay twice what it should sell for, but I can't afford it.
I guess that's a no on the cartridge?
Well, thanks a bunch for letting me know...

As I have said several times that I have no control over the pricing what so ever.  The ebay seller has no control either.  What happens every weekend is I go to the warehouse and search for things as well as pick a few items I know should be of interest and get the listing price from the shop owner.  I then catalog the item and drop them to the seller.  The seller is a non-prophet and is doing this only to raise money for his cause.  His cut is a set price the shop owner has worked out in advance.  I don't have details on this as I was not involved in there negotiation. I do suggest lowering the prices to him all the time for you guys but well have to see what comes of it as like I will repeat its not me decision.

I'm only doing this to help the community get things as much as possible.  If the price isn't right don't buy it thats all I can say.  I will keep plugging away at getting lower pricing as much as I can.
