At least three times per week:

"how do you frame a jersey?"

Or "How do you store your jerseys."

I throw them on the floor where my dog makes a nice little bed out of the most valuable ones.

Good news: the Niemi jersey and several others are sold!

Bad news: spamming the group to sell the last two jerseys!!!

I sincerely hope that guy is done collecting after that.

I wonder if the Niemi is someone's new "GRAIL".

Seeing a lot of "make me an offer" sale posts in the groups the last couple of weeks.  Funny thing is most of these groups have in their rules that prices must be posted in all sales ads.

Nobody reads the rules.

And Mitchell and Ness jerseys should be banned from the group as well.

You know what I wonder about? At some point, I would not be surprised if Facebook started charging a listing fee for sales posts. They already have their "marketplace" option when you list a jersey and given how Facebook works, it makes sense that they would try to monetize this too. The logistics would be a pain for them to start but man ... they have the community to pull it off.

I would imagine it would be very difficult. Not that I use Facebook or know how it works, but if there is an area where you can post things about jerseys without charge, people will figure out a way to abuse that and avoid paying if there was also a place that charged for sale posts. then Facebook would have to figure out a way to monitor and enforce the rules, which seems like it would be an onerous task.

Oh yeah, I completely understand. People will always figure out a way to abuse the system-- or get around it. We see that with eBay and people doing off-site deals. Yet given the amount of selling that occurs, there's no doubt that Facebook has considered it. The carrot could be some sort of buyer-protection type system that could be offered to sellers/buyers. It's an ambitious idea but Facebook has proven to be quite creative when it comes to generating new revenue streams.

The admins of the groups should be able to fine every user who posts a preview mail day, several grail days or an ad for a puck or a replica jersey. Users who clog up the feed with jerseys that nobody buys should be send to federal prison for two weeks. 

 

Sorry, letting my inner Trump out.

Amonte, yes, yes, yes.

Mftiz, I should have done my homework before I spitballed. From a recent Verge article:

"The company does not plan on charging a fee to conduct transactions, which gives it an edge over those competing services. Instead, Facebook gains what it has always been most hungry for: users’ precious eyeballs and more of their time each and every day."

That's the one that gets abused quite a bit.

That makes sense too, especially where Facebook membership has probably decreased with the advent of newer social media products like Snapchat and Instagram.

I mod the not-game worn group with a few others who post on here. The "not posting a price" drives me insane. However, when I asked if I am allowed to delete posts without prices, the other mods told me not to do so without warning. If you ever see something in those groups, please report it and I'll take care of it.

I don't see a reason to not give someone a fair warning, and a few hours to fix the problem, and if they don't fix the problem then you can delete the post. If you just delete the post, they won't know what they did wrong, and they'll just post it again the same way.

People don't read the rules. But if you don't tell them, they'll continue to not read the rules, and keep posting things incorrectly. Thus is the job of a moderator, to enforce the rules while keeping the group fun and not be a jerk about it and make people want to leave (or kick them out).

 

EDIT: And no, I am not turning my Facebook back on just to moderate the group properly because you have no patience for people lol

And if they persist after the warning, then give them the delete-o-bomb.

You know, if I had a potential big-money gamer, I'd probably pay to get it authenticated, rather than sell it for far less as a "maybe" gamer. Seems like the upside would be worth it.

Exactly!!! If you aren't 100% sure if it's game worn/issued, don't even attempt to sell it as such.
