Hi, Can the person who posted a list of cards for sale please send me
the list again.

While we are at it, what are people paying for their boxes. I am from
Australia and paying something like $115 US per box.

Can I also add this on the topic of trade and sale lists:

It is probably not worthwhile posting lists of coomons and uncommons for
two reasons:

a) It is going to take up too much bandwidth with large individual
messages that will take an age to download. I have at different times
subscribed to quite a few lists and as a game matures the number of huge
trade and sale posts makes quickly gets out of control;
b) Anyone who is going to invest a serious amount in this game will
quickly accumulate all commons and uncommons. This is not to say that
you could not post a small list of uncommons that you are looking for
for a deck. I can see that happening a lot.

In closing, I just think you have to consider that other people may not
be interested in seeing huge trading posts which may detract from their
enjoyment of the list. A little common sense and courtesy to your fellow
list members will go a long way towards making this list a success.

BTW my comments should not be taken as a critisism of any past posts to
the list. We are all very enthusiastic about this new game. We should
enjouy it for a while before things get serious.



These messages were posted a long time ago on a mailing list far, far away. The copyright to their contents probably lies with the original authors of the individual messages, but since they were published in an electronic forum that anyone could subscribe to, and the logs were available to subscribers and most likely non-subscribers as well, it's felt that re-publishing them here is a kind of public service.
