    OT: Suggestion for more effective warnings

    As most of you know, I've been going through threads working on the purge. Time and time again I see threads warning about scams and certain ebay sellers that are rendered useless because the seller's ID is never given. The post simply contains a link to an auction and a warning to stay away from them. Since I've had great success in my plea for people to include the thread title in their links, I thought I'd remind everyone that ebay auctions don't last forever and the seller's ID will be lost to time if it is not preserved here. So, in the future please try to include the Seller's ID in your warning. It'd really help out the collectors of the future.

    I second that. Also, now there's repro ship parts out of Australia that should be monitored as well.

    It would be best to include the eBay user's id in the title so it can be found by using the search options.

    Something like:

    eBaySeller0875: Selling fakes

    or

    Holy thread revival! Now you're gonna make me dig to find that again.

    I know there's fake Y-Wing bombs, AT AT chin guns, Falcon Ball and arms, Dagobah Foam, cardboard backdrops, and some other I can't remember off the top of my head.

    Do your homework before you buy parts off the net from anyone not affiliated with this site or a trusted toy dealer.
