voters remorse over here. i like the idea of no more 'make an offer' threads, but i also liked waiting until someone actually showed interest in a card of mine before giving them a price...now im looking up prices for cards that havent had any interest at all in 10 years.
due to my overall laziness, i still havent updated my threads, and its very possible i may let them just die...

I'm not opposed to having prices required and in that said I still think a Stricker price denoting on offer should be permitted still on the following circumstances:

There should be a mandatory percentage of the specified price the seller must except if offers are taken?

Let's say 90% so should a seller sell a card for $100, they must then move it if a buyer's prepared to pay $90. Yes I know this can be hard to monitor but I feel strongly about this as,

There is nothing quite irritating of a seller having a card for sale on offer then rejecting one even 99.9% of the full price! - is this because they secretly wish a buyer to pay more than what's realistic? Could well be and that should not be put up with on here!

There won't be any mandatory directions. The price is a starting point for negotiations for both seller and buyer to then agree on a price. We cannot force someone to sell something they own for an amount they do not agree to.

Ok Graham, I didn't expect you to implant my suggestion and get what you're saying. Bottom line is if you want a specific price then just say so without beating about the bush.

In other words it happens in eBay all the time - I have no hesitation in asking a seller what's the point in taking offers if mine is just not good enough?
