The BST is like the Wild West and I wonder if regulating it further would do more harm than good.
There’s a wildly divergent quality of buyer/seller etiquette and the valuing of yoyos based on condition and desirability is just all over the place. This is because of the range of people using it. You’ve got your seasoned BSTers and first-timers, adults and kids.
For those of you constantly running a BST I can see how you’d lose your cool and get frustrated and maybe some additional guidelines would help, but let’s be reasonable.
On one hand, a rule that all yoyos for sale should be priced would be the most reasonable new rule, but on the other, since prices go all over the place no one wants to undervalue their yoyo and not make as much as the next person, or overvalue and never sell. The best I think is to price and then drop it incrementally for a faster sale or keep firm and wait. Either way, yes, prices would be good. I skip so many ads that don’t have prices because that usually indicates the seller is probably valuing their yoyos higher than I’d pay. Whatevs, I posted stuff without pricing as well, so… But then I price and drop it down over time…
