No respect for tiki!

Kids these days. *sigh*

I've been kinda following smcollector. It's cute. It's mostly stuff I've had for a decade, but cool to see there's still interest in Mooniana. Ya know, carrying the torch. Or, the Moon Stick.

Since I'm no selling my shit, I decided to post a notice there, right? 'Cause, ya know, I probably have one of the biggest goddam SM collections in North America, no joke. And somebody's gotta buy my fucking Calices and Pegasus Messages right?

So I post. And, a couple hours later, check my email, and am completely baffled to see NOT ONE NOTE from somebody begging me to pleeeeeease set aside the Amazoness Quartet for them because they are so special.

So, I checked the smcollector group. My post had been deleted.

So, I go to the smcollector user info, and it's TL;DR. Rules, tiki has no time for your petty rules!!!

But I do see there's some kind of companion group for selling.

Which, is locked. And, no info on how to get membership, and I'm too annoyed to figure it out.

So Mr. Tiki suggests, "Hey, write the mods a friendly note, "DON'T YOU KNOW WHO I AM DICKWEED????"

I go to the mod page. Her nick is "Notorious B.I.T.C.H." No, I am NOT making this up. Uh, yeah, I bet I'll get some happy friendly conversation there!

Eh, I think I'll go kill zombies.

the selling group rules still seem to be no ebay links, only private selling through livejournal. I guess you'll need to PM a few members about your ebay auctions or something, hmm.
I hope there's lots of bidding wars over your items!

I'm not terribly concerned about prices right now, I just need to clear out space in my entryway! Seriously, if I don't get any bidders, I really wouldn't mind taking a box or two down to Goodwill.

No worries. Sailor Moon needs no advertisement. You should be able to sell most of them easily. The rest will need to be relisted once, maybe twice.

The Amazoness Quartet are the only SM dolls that stayed in my collection. I still have no plans to sell mine. They're just too wacky not to keep.

The AQ is totally my fave - the dolls and the plushies!

The plush are equally cool! I completely forgot about those.

I just checked your listings. You might have a problem selling Irwin US/Canada toys. I sold all of mine in one gigantor Lot because I didn't want to deal with it anymore. The Japanese stuff - that'll sell.

As crappy as eBay is, at least as a seller you will have some protection unlike selling through internet collector forums or on LJ. And a bit more control over who you end up dealing with. Plus those kiddies who aren't old enough to have a paypal account won't be bothering you like they would be on LJ.

Weird a selling journal having closed membership. I can understand wanting membership approved by mods if they want to do that but closed? Doesn't sound well-run. And no that name doesn't suprise me, most so-called internet collector groups are far from what real collecting use to be. Many are just places where someone who wants attention gains it through being obnoxious and posting a lot. (been through too many of these groups crashing and burning, including DoA.) I have very little respect for them.

Good luck in selling your stuff. It seems if it's a popular item eBay is okay right now. Non-popular or over stocked, not so good.

To clarify, I wasn't planning on selling through the group - I entirely agree with you. I was just gonna leave a note pointing out the auctions. But, oh well, the zombies have climbed up on the roof, darn them.

I managed to join serasell before they closed membership. No idea why they did, actually. They had a problem with people posting non-SM-related stuff but it was only three or four posts from what I could remember. I'm actually pissed at them myself at the moment because I tried to leave feedback (after PMing the feedback mod to make sure I got it right because the rules aren't well-written) and after I posted she was all like, "READ THE RULES AND EDIT UR POST!!!" so I'm like, "F you guys. I was trying to do the comm a favor."

You're probably better off posting an alert in garagesalejapan and/or anime4sale.

Good luck with sales!

Oh, thanks much for the advice! I didn't know about those groups.
