I was selling and trading multiples pretty much every week here, now im lucky if its once maybe twice a month now and my PMs have dropped to a few a week tops.

Yep.. Part of it is tho now this place is basically broken in function and chock full of alts and scammers. I wont sell here unless its one of the people I actually know.
Sad, isn't it? :neutral:

It's neither. Essentially, the site grew bigger than the infrastructure was able to handle. They're working on fixing it, but it's just a slow process. It'll get there. I wouldn't give up entirely.
So it goes...

Are you on a different eb than I am? How many times have you been "scammed"?

I've had nothing but positive experiences buying and selling for the last couple of years. But that's just me?

Right! I have done well over 350 sales and trades on this site alone and never had 1 problem. I have had a few un experienced shippers, but never had any real problems ever. I love this place!!

Just cover yourself, take lots of pictures of the piece you ship, take a pic of the #, always do GS, and you should be good. I sell to new members all the time, never an issue. If I trade with someone I don't know, I always ask that they ship first. Only had 2 people say no to shipping first out of at least 80 or more trades.

Not a Spusta fan!! Booooo this man!!! Haha, just kidding around, the Nozo image is pretty cool. Love the little dude puffin' on the side! Have you checked out his older stuff, was a bit more detailed and not as cartoony looking. Some of my favorites are the older ones. I love them all though, but I definitely like the older stuff the best....
