The forum, and purpose for it.

Got a Queen item to sell? Fancy adding to your collection? Try here... in a friendly alternative that only charges what items are REALLY worth. However no bootlegs please. Happy bidding. Only Admin and Mods can start threads so if you have an item to sell or want, please send a PM and we will sort it out for you.

Although it is called 'Auction This Day', if you want "auctions" then try e-bay, as we are trying to make a place for Queen fans to FAIRLY buy, sell and trade their Queen bits. Set sales, upfront price.

Basically, if you have Queen stuff that you feel is surplus, want to get a fair price for it, and fancy it goes to a good home, then please P/M either JLP, WeeMann or myself, and we will stick up an ad for you.

I think it needs to be at the very least 'tried out' this way, as we have had such a forum before, and it started to get silly with people wanting EIL prices, transactions getting snotty, and resentment flowing all around, and that is not what any of us want.

So, let us know, in detail, what you want to flog, and what you are asking for it (bearing in mind and at least considering postage, packing, insurance if required, and other incidentals like customs charges).

It is by us, and it is for us. Let us try and keep it that way, please.

So we cannot start a topic but can reply? (testing this now!)

Is the fairest way to do a 1st come 1st served by putting a reply to the topic then PM the person concerned?

Also - any thoughts to a wants list? I think that might clog up this board in my opinion?

The "wants" list could be one thread, made sticky, so it is always up the top of the forum. Hopefully it will not clog anything up that way.

Right, the forum's live, so are any of you lot who asked for it, going to forward details to JLP, WeeMann or me, of what you want to offload, or just plain want?

Excellent, looks like a good idea and well organized. I am still laughing at "Auction This Day" though :lol:

Having said that leaving actual auctions to the ebay thread is a good idea, so maybe worth removing the "happy bidding" comment in the description on the index. And I think now maybe "I Want It All" may be a more appropriate name, but nowhere near as funny!

I think having this here is very useful, so thanks for setting this up, although it may take a few weeks to get going. I will try and sort out a small amount of stuff to sell and make a Wants list as well next week, or maybe the week after, but I will do it.

As for prices, well that is difficult, as prices fluctuate massively all the time. I think people selling have to decide their own prices, if it is too much, it won't sell. Set prices for items is a good idea, but items might take weeks to sell anyway, which I think is fine for most people. But I think you need to limit price changes to once only, but one price change is definitely needed as an option.

Anyway, thanks again, we are all Queen fans, and anything here to accomodate changing/improving/increasing/downsizing/starting etc our collections in some way is definitely a good thing and will be useful to some people I'm sure :-D
Hot Space is actually only my 6th favourite Queen album.
(But is a very underrated album in my opinion).

One more thing, and I promise to shut up and go and make those 2 short lists.

I think this sub forum won't get a lot of use, but i don't think that matters, as for those that do use it, it will be very useful.

At the moment though it takes up quite a lot of room on the index page with:-
Auction This Day
"Got a Queen item to sell? Fancy adding to your collection? Try here... in a friendly alternative that only charges what items are REALLY worth. However no bootlegs please. Happy bidding. Only Admin and Mods can start threads so if you have an item to sell or want, please send a PM and we will sort it out for you."

As this isn't a big priority part of the forum, I'd go with something like:-
I Want It All
"For Buying/Selling of Queen items. No Bootlegs please. PM Admin/Mods as only they can start threads. See the first thread for all the details"

The above would only take up 2 lines on the index page, rather than the current 5. Just trying to be helpful, promise to shut up now and go off and make a those 2 short lists :-D

I guess it's a bit like the last time we did it.

A lot of interest about having something set up, but no traffic.

Still, we'll let the idea sit here for a bit, and if nothing happens, it'll be removed.

I thought my ideas were good, never mind, just trying to be helpful :-D

Anyway, I will do a Wants List, but there is no point at the moment as I don't have enough money to buy any of it, so I'll send the Wants List in September when I should have some more money. So i hope this section is still here then.

Again it's going to take time to get a For Sale List together, as I'm not very organised with my collection, but I will do it, but will probably be August if I'm being realistic!

I successfully sold a few bits last time, so it wasn't a complete waste of time.

Why include the word "vinyl" in the title when you're selling 5 CDs?
