Default $OLD pet peeve

You're not helping the community learn values when you change the price to SOLD after a successful BST sale. Leave prices intact so we all can learn what stuff is selling for. I've got access to VCP but others might not. And I would argue that BST might be a more accurate representation of real world and up to the minute pricing vs. ebay and AH which may have been shilled to begin with. The only argument I've heard is that buyers might not want their price paid publicized but does that really supercede the community value of historical prices? Net54 could even start building a pricing database as an awesome value add to its members.

We had a thread on this same topic a year ago or so. I agree with you completely. I've noticed Jake quoting listings so sellers can't just delete asking prices after a sale. Seems like a reasonable way to make sure there is a record.

Either you or I did. It's one of my pet peeves as well, along with people listing cards without asking prices. That may have been the thread I started. Also a spirited discussion.

I wonder how many times cards are sold at asking price. I'm sure a lot of cards have sold below the original asking price through negotiations even though the seller put "SOLD" without deleting the original price.

yes I would argue that a requirement of using BST would be to input the final selling price post sale.

Yes. Agreed. I would like to see the sales price also.

-1; it will never happen.(as far as it being mandatory to leave the sales price)
