I've got my full of Helheim, but is this a four letter store that rhymes with dr. Seuss? If so, I've had some not so successful dealings with them in the past.

now could the reason it has so many views be because people know indy as someone who makes decent speculative picks, is it any surprise that thread has over 20x as many views as it does posts? of course not, it's just people giving it a quick look for some solid buys next week.

you still want to tell me there are not that many lurkers around here star?
i dont always comment on his picks ..does that make me a lurker?

I think some kind of pm system is a great way to deal with this stuff. How do you do a multi pm btw?

Or we could have them make a forum that you have to have a certain post count to join?

Just a thought

Hi all,


sorry for the late response had to do some night shore stuff so the wifey wont get mad...hehe

happy wife happy life as they say...


Anyway, base on my count of the people who ordered and the quantities they ordered I believe they are out of Helheims.

The reason I did this through PM is to let others share as well. It is not being a lurker and all but it is also a way of giving back. Indy gives out picks and tips and many people benefited but those tips didn't come easy. Research was done and time was given for it.

It took me an hour or 2 to see this and gave out the advice. I just pm'ed the people who I saw was constantly sharing tips as well. I somehow felt bad already that regulars are the one who keep losing their share.

I encourage everyone then now to share and research for bargains or snags so we can have an even greater community here in BO.

*For some other regulars who didn't receive my PM I do apologize...I think the comma division I used was wrong or something. I'll be sure to add you in the next PM list.


For you to be included in the list, please do share. If I see you also researching and sharing stuff I'd include you in my PM list. I will still be on the lookout and share generally on the boards but for premium stuff/hot comics like Helheim, I'll do the PM list for now. Once again, for you to be included, please just research and share.. That simple

Maybe Im greedy or thinking about this backwards but i dont care who knows where i buy my stuff. Im glad that books sell out online, especially when i am holding a bunch of them. That just means someone who wants one real bad is going to have to go through the secondary market to buy one and might just buy one from me.

I realize that someone buying 100 copies sucks for other people who are looking to get their hand on just 1 copy.

However its not like we dont discuss "hot" upcoming titles when they are still available for pre order for less than cover price. Helheim was one of these books that we did discuss and told people to pre order them. If they dont take the advice or missed the post I really dont feel bad for them. If you really wanted one or 20 you should have been pro active and pre ordered them like the rest of us.

Just one of many posts on this book before it sold out
Helheim

again, I don't care about the particular book, I care about another potential source to get books.

Yes I understand that. But when it comes to small online stores that are not large and well known I think people like to keep those to themselves. I have 17 different online comic stores bookmarked but would probably keep most of them to myself just in case I was looking for something that i forgot to purchase. Once you let the cat out of the bag you cant put it back in

yes, and this shop in particular supposedly has some very nice books in stock according to their website, whether they really have them or will honor the orders is another story.

i was very appreciative of biggy sharing this little nugget with who he did in the first place. if you just blow a shop up on the message board like that you are 100% right, that shop will be pillaged by hundreds of people and nothing will be left.

In your previous post you wrote that you don't care if people know where you buy your books...

I don't see the point of having a forum if people aren't going to share information.
