How would I go about reporting retaliatory feedback when scammed?

and how would I go about proving the loss of codes? I'm not trying to get them back but it would further prove that person should not be trusted.

 

  Contact Pookymeister or Trakan to report retaliatory feedback.

Not gaming related, but went to my first yard sale yesterday!!! :D/

 

So, on a whim during running yesterday morning, my girlfriend and I saw a sign in the neighborhood for a sign-

 

"CRAP- xxx Biddle Ave Come pick up my stuff(its a yardsale) 11-2"

 

So, natutrally with that kind of advertising I had to stop by. Girl was really cute and nice, said she was moving and we could name our price on stuff. For 5 bucks-

 

2 St. Germain Cds

1 Buena Vista Social Club CD (for the gf)

1 Beatles 1967-1970 CD

1 Breakfast at Tiffanys Anniversary DVD

1 A Christmas Story Monopoly game

1 Elliptical (with electronic display)

 

The Christmas Story game and the DVD were sealed. We ended up carrying the elliptical back to our apartment about 5 blocks away. That was fun.

 

This all happened after I had brought up to the gf while we were running about something I would like to ask the people whom have good luck at yard sales. Do you guys have better luck in more affluent neighborhoods or lower income neighborhoods? I want to make a plan of sales when I go out, but I would like to get some advice on the types of sales that all these games are found at. I know the tips about starting early, making a plan, but what about the neighborhoods that you guys go to? Younger people, older people?

 

Any suggestions about this kind of stuff is greatly appreciated in advance, thanks!

 

 Personally for me (while I've had decent finds, nowhere near what some people get, but alas the "perks" of living in the middle of nowhere)    The random (unadvertised sales that you just happen to come by) tend to have the best stuff but that could be due to the high reseller activity in my area....

Title explains it all, a new user posted about it and rather than redirect them to post about it here, figured I would do it myself.

 

  This is still an issue.

Found this in the 20 minutes I had for yard-sailing last Friday before heading to Ohio for a long weekend.

 

Also included (not pictured); N64 console w/ expansion pak, 5 first party controllers (3 with somewhat floppy sticks), a Retro Duo console w/ 2 controllers & 2 SNES controllers, Obscure for XBOX, and a PSX controller.

 

 

highlights for SNES were DKC 3 & Mario All Stars

 

Spoiler

Also, I've forgotten how to post "spoilers." I'll update the post to keep the page less cluttered if I find out.

 

the codes  [ spoiler ]   and  [ /spoiler ] (without spaces) are how you begin and end a spoiler.

#11873363 New Kmart Clearance Price Drops (YMMV)

Posted by Kovorkian on 26 June 2014 - 01:33 PM

I get it, retail sucks and I imagine that somewhere like Kmart it's probably worse than most places.  It was annoying to have to wait all that time but it was the lying to my face and total apathy when I'm standing there trying to buy something from their store that really chapped my ass.

Never do this as a retail employee (or in general),  I will go out of my way to be a dick if you do.

I used to find a lot of N64 controlers at SAVERS. I just ran across these as I was reworking my storage:

I would only buy the ones with tight analog sticks.

I bought 2 wireless guitar hero guitars(one had a korn faceplate) at a goodwill a couple days ago, and just noticed that the korn guitar is autographed by 3 members of korn. So that was a nice surprise. 

 You never know what you'll find!

Spoiler

no offense, but you just killed part of my soul.
 
in all seriousness, to find one with the flip top on it is a good score. and once you find a copy of sonic 3, you are going to be in good shape.


Spoiler'd the huge pic,and yes.  Not nearly as good as the time I was in the library, with the girl yelling "the only thing I know about Japan, is that's where Hong Kong is."  and everyone laughing at her.

 

 EDIT: forgot to post my find!

 

  Game of thrones (Book 1)   $0.50   :hot:




#11849711 Dust 514 $30 OF DLC Content for $3.99

Posted by Kovorkian on 17 June 2014 - 09:37 PM

Gamedealdaily.com is offering a download code for DLC content for Dust 514 that is supposedly worth $30.  For those who don't know, Dust514 is a free to play FPS on PS3.  I don't know much about the game, but it seems like a decent deal for those who may be into it or want to try it out with a nice starting boost.

 

Here is the description from the site:

DUST 514, a free to play game available exclusively on the PlayStation Network, thrusts you into the explosive ground conflict of the EVE universe. This promotional code includes your personal DUST 514 ordinance pack containing a 7-day active skill booster, a permanent Armored Personnel Carrier, an assortment of digital items, and 2,000 Aurum to spend on in-game gear, weapons and equipment. Over $30 in total value!

I would not buy or promote anything sold from Game Deal Daily.

 

CAVEAT EMPTOR GDG is a shady company,  they have had multiple issues in the past of straight up lying to the customers.  Most Recently they sold a bunch of Minecraft activation codes, that were later deactivated by Mojang.  (LINK)

the logic of this post is fantastically brilliant :bow:

  in  High School Algebra, our teacher made us learn how to code Ti  Calculators  I had a TI83 (+)  not sure if + or not, but in college it served me well :D.  Whenever my stats professor went over how to do different things, I made programs in my calculator, always got those quizzes and tests done fast :P

 

 This logic can be used in an excel spreadsheet to calculate avg gains.

If that magic card on top is a timewalk then you have some money there. Sorry can't tell from the small pic.

I believe it says "Gaseous Form"  text is blurred in the photo.   I  believe the two others that have visible text say "Disenchant"  and "Plains" 

 

 if you click the pic it takes you to the host, where you can view the original
