well, that sounds like a familiar request that got shot down when I asked if it were possible (the list of sellers). I hope people listen to you and we can make it happen.

Not sure if it's the exact request that got shot down as you say, but... I think it is a good idea to keep members querries about sellers in one thread. I have seen a lot of querries taking place recently. It would also be great to have a "good list" as Craig suggested in another thread. If we keep to the facts and keep it professional then I see no problem in doing this. If it becomes messy or a problem then I will re-look at things.

Keep it real
Andy

Would you make a sticky for it or are we just going to keep using this thread? I'm completely down with this. I'll start. Sederic6 - He's on this board and on ebay. I picked up some posters from him off of the classifieds here and was stunningly pleased with what I received. Fromdusktildawn - Dan from MPA - solid guy ddlitd399 - No complaints with anything I've bought so far. theseventhseal - Happy with my purchases and their authenticity. That's my "good" list so far. I hope we keep it going because it's a good idea and handy for all of us. Peace out. Doug

Jeannie,brings up some good points. Bad poster dealers/sellers aren't stupid,Some of them,have been doing it for years.They know all the angles. We went over this on NS4.A bad seller list was out of the question. However Phil and Eric,on NS4, had some good idea's.Better seller desriptions,for one. If there was a disagreement,about a seller that was put on the list,the two parties would state their case.Then we could look at the info,whenever we wanted,and make up our own mind who to believe. Ofcourse this was for a bad seller list,but i'm sure there will be some disagreements for good sellers too. ...urgh..i don't know,hopefully this can work Much more thourough descriptions,then what you are doing. I'll get into it tomorrow...make that today i guess :) anthony

Welcome to the forum Kevin, I've never bought from "Film favorites". This seller has alot of 60's-80's folded material.Mostly obscure titles.These appear authentic,since most of the movies weren't that popular.The reprint/bootleg threat is low. The boxes of newer poster titles,appear to be one sided.Most collectors like double sided material. I would guess they are authentic,most are from not so popular movies,but i'm not 100% sure. I would imagine these one sided posters,were leftover,cause everyone wants double sided. anthony

Hello All, Having a list of good sellers is nice,but some people might want to know,why they are good? Did the seller describe the item correctly?:If it was a reprint,was it desribed as a reprint.If it was original,was it desribed as such.If they didn't know what it was,did they say so. Was the condition described accurately?:If it had a rip in it,was it described as having a rip in it, Was the communication good?:Did the seller answer any questions,you may have asked. Or provide pictures,if requested. What kind of auction was it?:Did the seller use private auctions.Some people might be turned off,by the possibility of shill bidding. What payment methods are accepted?:Some might be paypal only. Does the seller pack his items professionally? Did the seller ship in a timely manor? Are refunds offered? Some collectors might have these questions and much more. Best to give,as much information as possible,when adding a seller to this list. You don't have to write a book,just a little summary,on your seller experience. To erase confusion,a seller's ebay user ID,or their internet store name,would be best. Followed by a description of your experience,with the particular seller. Remember,a new collector might join a forum first,before they buy any posters. Or,might be lurking,looking for this information. Maybe,a forum member,might need info on a seller. Any additional info,from the experience, with the seller you add to the list ,would be helpful. A seperate post,with just seller ID'S,or their store names,should be made,once a certain amount of sellers have been compiled. JUST SOME IDEA'S AND OPINIONS,HOW THE LIST COULD WORK BETTER. anthony P.S. In the event, forum members disagree on a seller added to the list,both sides should be allowed to state their case. Forum members,could act as jurors,hearing the evidence,and deciding who they believe. Ultimately,Andy will have the final say,on matters such as these. Hopefully this list,won't be abused,and serve all in need of information,well :)
