More Crazy eBay prices. 1 Year, 3 Months ago  
I know that these two sets are out of stock temporarily but geesh...

Cavern Set Lot

His shipping is higher that Dwarven Forge for four sets and it doesn't look like he has the original boxes and some of the sets are incomplete. At the end of the day you are almost paying what these would cost new at Dwarven Forge. Notice the slight fibs in the description (dwarven forge would charge $100 shipping, out of stock indefinitely).

So I messaged the guy and asked him if he would consider lowering the price and he responded with a slew of personal insults. He called me a moron and a few other choice words.

I responded with "No need for personal insults. Have a Merry Christmas" and he responded with more insults. He called me an ass and told me that I needed to think before I speak. He also told me he is blocking me from bidding on his items - like I ever would at this point. I would avoid this seller.

Couldn't resist, so I asked if the stalagmites, large & small rocks and mithril clusters were included ;-)

I had to block him because he just kept sending me inappropriate messages. His negative reviews are kind of funny. One buyer called the police because the seller made threats.

That guy is a tool. I asked him if he had the boxes for another DF auction
from a few weeks ago. Someone else asked him at about the same time and he thought it was me using another account trying to scam him or something. When I said no it wasnt me, he called me a liar and banned me from his auctions.

Perhaps it is time to add an "expected restock date" feature to the Products pages.

With a standard "subject to change without notice" disclaimer, of course.

Very good idea Jackattack...especially since this guy is providing links directly in his auctions to the Dwarven Forge web site showing the cavern sets out-of-stock and then stating that the sets are gone "indefinitely".

Since the fame of the high postage & package fees of Df products is true he jumped on this opportunity to make some money.
In french we say "il en fait des tonnes" to say he tries to defend his price but can't be serious.

The sets he tries to sell are incomplete and without the original boxes so can't be justified to a such price. It's going to be restocked too so he's lying to get his money.

I should recommand to not bid, a such agressivity against people who ask is suspicious.
You can ban him definitively if you send a copy of the insults to ebay's support customer service.

Just to clarify, I don't mean that DF should post an Expected Date of Restock that says: February 3rd, 2013, fifteen seconds past 4:32 in the afternoon EST.

I'm thinking more like: Spring 2014

When a container actually ships, they might get as specific as "early March".

Well let me add fuel to this fire. I tried to negotiate with this guy on his seven sets of Lake sets. He was rude and frankly really odd in his email replies. I told him if he ever insulted me again I would never do business with them. I simply asked him to tell me what he was throwing in for free. He never would answer the question. You can imagine his response after I wrote him about him insulting me!

I would like to recommend DF putting a "second quarter" restocking date.

All

Thanks for your comments here. I'm reading them and I'm sure so do Jeff and Stefan.

The problem is to give accurate information but not trying to promise too much. Timelines are unfortunately pretty long and even if you think you know when something arrives - well - just look at the delay for the current container.

I felt Christmas was 'very conservative' with a lot of possible delay built in. Plan for Europe is that we unload tomorrow and ship in the New Year. But I guess we need to find some better ways.
