So is Google Authenticator the only form of 2FA that Humble offers? I have to download an app to my phone, or any way to just link a phone number and get texts?

I dono man, I think if a post is decently old, it’s going to be common sense that the price for Half Life 2 isn’t $40 anymore. /s
If you list prices and most of your stuff doesn’t sell, you cleary want too much and aren’t going to be pushing your catalog anyways, and are likely going to be the seller asking for offers and then declining them anyways.

If you think it’s hard work update prices, you either have too much inventory (for a reason), or you don’t want to put any effort into selling your stuff. I really think the reality of it is you can only expect so much work from a buyer these days, they have too many options and will just move on. Selling is hard work in every situation, buying shouldnt also have to be.

Personally, If I see a list and there’s no prices, I don’t even bother. Maybe im in the minority, but it seems as if people with no prices listed tend to have a lot more stock than those who do. Can’t be a coincidence.

But who really cares, it’s obviously not going to change anyone’s mind one way or another. People will and won’t post prices, it’s the way it is when (like you said) the formatting of it all is so bad.

I sell at drastically lower prices than anyone lists or offers on this board. Which is why prices are pointless. I sell for reasonable prices based on market value as apparent by looking at sites like G2A. If you don't want to make me a reasonable offer, then don't. 


No fucking shit people with more stock don't list prices, because it's harder to update everything with prices. I have lots of stock because I buy bundles and don't activate games I'm not playing. 


Asking for people to improve the rules of this board is idiotic. The whole forum is a fucked way to list and sell items, and there's no way to fix it because it's a forum thread. End of discussion. We don't need endless posts "POST PRICES PEOPLE" several times a week.

From the OP:

Yeah, that's years out of date. The intention was that you'd have a "trade list" on your profile and clicking it would take you to your post in this thread. For obvious reasons, a forum is not a good way to implement such a system, and that didn't work out. It's basically a free-for-all now. 


Just in case we implement a 'must list prices' requirement for this thread, feel free to copy-paste the following to ensure compliance: 

- $12,000 OBO.

Listing prices is stupid. Prices change hundreds of times every month. It's not remotely realistic to keep up with market values. If you want to buy something, I'm going to go to G2A and determine the market value of the item at the moment. If your offer is fair or reasonably discounted I'll be happy to trade, if it's wildly lowballed I'll probably block you for wasting my time. Easy peasy. 


People offering to buy something in particular, especially something that has large volume like a recent Humble bundlee, should probably mention what they are offering for their own benefit to attract offers. But people listing what items they have on hand generally will have that list up for months while the market values of those items wildly fluctuate. It's a waste of time for sellers to list prices given that situation. There simply aren't enough buyers to get your item sold fast enough for the pricing effort to make sense. 


If this were like Steam Community market then you could put in buy and sell orders just like in a stock market with time periods on the ticket validity, that would be awesome. But it's not like that, it's a random forum post with the most janky format ever.
