@mickeymac: i would totes be down with altoid-sized boxes for DS games. they'd probably be sturdier thanks to their smaller size, and i'd be able to put more of them on my shelf :3

@Waltz: regarding the movies, you're not sure if it's happening or not because you knee-jerk every time someone writes an article on the internet. you jumped the gun with that thread and you're jumping it now -- even you're admitting that you're not sure whether what you're saying is how things are gonna go down, so why not relax and wait for the system to come out before you start up with this kind of thread?

the bottom line is that nothing is set in stone, and no one knows for sure if they're actually not going to be able to deliver. let's let things lie for now and come back to it when it's released and we know for sure how everything is playing out.

So you guys are ok with destroying the planet, as long as you don't have to put any effort into protecting your discs.

Good to know.

yes, because some of us really don't like our games winding up scratched thanks to a flimsy box, that means we're totally down with the eventual destruction of the planet. burn, earth, burn!

Lost Levels = hardest, holy crap
SMW = easiest considering you can beat it like eight or nine stages in iirc, lives are mad easy to get and you've also got Yoshi and sweet powerups at your beck and call, lol. SMB would take the easiest spot, but lives are harder to get if you warp your way through and the powerups are far more basic.

I thought this was good advice actually. The only thing I would have added would have been: If you are unsure of the mailing price, do this BEFORE you list the item so, once the sale is complete, the item can be mailed expeditiously.

indeed. if it's too much of a hassle to bother with international shipping, you can always put something in the auction about how you will not ship internationally, Canada-only, yadda-yadda. Lots of sellers choose to not ship internationally, it's no big deal. :3

This is my analysis based on the news that has been out there, and what I myself has seen/ heard from Nintendo.

I think this is the key (lack of?) point to this thread -- It can't fail to live up to anything if it hasn't even been released yet. We don't have all the facts. No one has a 3DS in their hot little hands to mess around with and figure out for sure. Nintendo has months to write the software it needs to cover every single doubt and fear expressed in this thread, and even longer if you consider the fact that, just like the DSi, the console (and its apps) will likely be updateable. Just because we haven't heard much yet about how the promised online revamp will affect the 3DS doesn't mean said revamp is not happening.

@The Fox: indeed, it's not hard to get a receipt or anything, or to require that your buyers purchase a level of shipping that involves a tracking number. Sellers gotta look out for themselves or they'll get burned.

'verified' just means you've given them your bank information. a lot of people who don't sell things online hesitate to do so because then PayPal has direct access to your checking account as well as any credit card(s) linked to the account; it's like having all your eggs in one basket should (god forbid) someone manage to get a hold of your login info.

is it a tangible thing you're selling (e.g., can you throw it under your bed and forget about it)? then it's a 'good'.
is whatever you're selling intangible (e.g. it has no physical form for you to lose behind a couch or something)? then it's a 'service'.

that question is for tax purposes, most likely, since services (usually?) aren't taxed (here in the US at least).
