JD reminds me of the old RS list serve from 1997-2000. No one knew it was active or how to sign up for it. But when you figured it out, your email box was never empty. The difficulty of signing up was what kept the teenagers (greenday) out. We have some great discussions about customizing back then. It was fun to send pictures back and forth and have private chats.
Now the meeting ground has moved from RS to here. Here you can talk in a much less censored atmosphere but the mods will deal with the greendayers faster and permanently.
It would have been a lot better if the FFURG message boards were more active. That's the place that should be the hotbed of customizing activity. Unfortunately here is where you get real feedback on your customs. Over at RS you get completely ignored unless its a poorly painted clone that your going to post of eBay for $100.
Oh yah, I remember that. Of course that was at that 'other' web site with the initials RS. That place is the prime example of people posting crap and then it showing up on ebay. If you critize the piece all hell breaks loose because that might reduce their bids.
I've only sold two non charity customs on ebay. In both cases the figures were far better than the crap that is out there but they never brought in much money. On the other hand, the people they went to were very excited about adding it to their collection. For profit it wasn't worth it. For making someone happy it was.
He responded to my offer by saying, "Get Real." I responded on how any normal person would never pay $100 for them. He responded with "Then I must find alot of abnormal people. People buy my stuff all the time."
