I see this thread as the place for smaller, lower value items whereas the 'Plus' thread seems to attract better, more high value stuff and has the stricter like-for-like rule in place. I offered up my GBA Castlevania in the RNP thread for example as it was a decent game with reasonable value but the others I've just given away here were probably only worth a few quid each and not up to replacing some of the stuff that people generously give away in the other thread.

Yeah, this is where you come to eat Aldi baked beans whereas an upmarket M&S equivalent is on offer in the RNP thread :wink:

I hope the two threads can co exist that was certainly my plan anyhow. If you have something more choice to offer then I would say the plus thread is the best option but it's entirely the choice of the individual. To me it's fine if the plus thread slumbers a bit sometimes as long as it's there if someone want to give away a choice item with confidence. :D

Parcels for Nokgod and Shiftytigger in the post today. I think that's everything for now :)

Definitely the Plus thread. It sounds like a quality item that deserves a fair swap/trade.

Did your games get through to you in one piece Nokgod and Shifty?

Awesome :)

Wasn't purposely looking for the trade feedback but I was concerned that the games may have gotten lost in the post. All's well that ends well though :)
