Good idea. Not frowned upon?

COMC "frowns upon" someone having more than one account on the website - people do it anyways and COMC doesn't do anything about it, so all that frowning means squat - but their official position is that an individual should only have one account.

Thanks for the business and to be honest, I do raise SOME but very few prices before a big sale but I have SO many cards that I always miss some and then they sell VERY cheap but I have so many listed and so many ready to be listed, I'm ok.

Sometimes to avoid making an expensive mistake I just mark expensive cards "To Ship" to avoid selling too cheap.

I also try to avoid storage fees so I don't mind taking a few losses to clear out some inventory.

Hope that all makes sense. As long as I can buy the cards cheap and it appears I can do that for awhile, then you will keep seeing these sales!

Thanks!

Peace!

I'd guess it might have been an issue when they had submission specials that had limits on the number of card submitted, but those don't happen anymore.

Apparently they care some, because it was mentioned to me again in an email just last week.

I know several people that have multiple accounts. I am flying up to meet with them on Wed. I can ask them.

Good luck. Perhaps they will invite you to their next pizza party or put you in their next staged video. Just kidding-ask them, why they no longer seem approachable.

I don't think JoBu9 and itrocdaj (who is a member of this site) are one in the same, as I have watched both of them moving up at the same time (many times) while refreshing a challenges page that supposedly had nothing open.

It sounds like you have had about as much luck as I have had in sending emails about this. I usually either get one of two responses, which are "we'll pass this along to are technical department", or " The challenges are a popular feature on the site and only so many open each day blah blah blah". But of course no actual statement about the problem at hand, even though they clearly know of it (what with all the emails and all), but don't seem to care about fixing it. And obviously JoBu9 and itrocdaj don't seem to be morally bothered by the fact that they are doing challenges that no one else has access to, which tells me all that I would ever need to know about them as people. If they were bothered by it, they wouldn't be doing it

I will make sure that I am unvalilable for the pizza party. I agree that the company has changed. Tim is totally off the grid, that is ok so he can focus on the site and not day to day stuff.

How many challenge points have you been able to earn per hour? 3,000 or more? I am just curious how fast the fingers are for the folks doing all of the challenges.

FWIW called COMC today and they said $5 ship credit is not gone, just a glitch that the coders have to fix.

3,000 is what I average per hour, provided of course that they're working without any glitches, which isn't very often anymore.

I could do the baseball team challenge way faster than the card # one that only shows up nowadays.

Anyone know why some cards don't make it to Ebay? If you contact COMC will they get them posted?

No, the selection is randomly done by some algorithm. You could try repricing them and see if that gets them on there.
