Can someone please explain to me what is going on here? - Page 2

post #21 of 160
first, kim that is so cute that your dd stalked for you!!

I see what kim and meg described happen with not just fm, but sos, etc - i'm frankly pretty turned off trying for hyena dipes from all of it. from a human nature standpoint it is interesting to observe though.

ITA!
Bad taste IMO. Part of the fun of diaper shopping is the rushing through checkout, fingers flailing, pulse racing muttering, speaking in touges.....
Once you loose that.....not so much fun :LOL
I used to love stalking sites, now that I am mostly prefolds life is easier and I do not *worry* about this and that.
But buying a diaper you do not need is what I think to be an issue of self control in most cases!

Offering a finder's fee for a diaper you really want is one thing. Requesting a finder's fee on the TP is quite another.

I don't have a problem with people putting them on Ebay, just as long as they don't use the TP as an auction block. That's not what the TP is supposed to be used for. It's not fair.

I'm probably being selfish here...but I'm grateful in a way to some of the people who have done this. I don't know the reasoning but I have been able to get a few things that I was interested in trying this way. :
(I know, I know... )
ETA: didn't mean to follow the finder's fee post...I just mean I've found new items on tp from recent stockings...

um I thing most people said what I was thinking except this -
it's just sort of weird!
I mean, why bother unless you are getting something specific for someone specific?
weird.
Does a full pm box make people feel loved...?

Thats a pretty good point! never looked at it that way..I have also noticed the purchasing of Hyena goods as trade leverage as well not sure how I feel about that one...

I hope no one is doing this as a power trip, because that would leave a really bad taste in my mouth.

Plus, watch eBay... some of what was scored will show up there, it always does.
I think it has gone that far too .

I am not sure I understand it either..The whole buying stuff at stocking only to list it on the TP for more than what you paid or asking for a different Hyena diaper in return However there have been a few very nice mamas the have allowed me to buy something that they got from a stocking because they felt they over bought such nice mamas here and that I can understand.

That's what I was trying to say.

I wanted to add to the above post that I have never been asked to pay any fees for something someone else scored just nice mamas sharing the : love


I hope that makes sense :LOL

Wow i was so proud of myself today for helping those who missed the stocking by offering up the things i got on purpose to help those who missed the stocking and for those who have slow connections.But then i saw this
I missed the Fussybutt stocking yesterday because my computer shut off while i was shopping.I was so upset so i thought i would help others today so they could feel some of the love.One of the things i got was not wanted by that person so i sold it for what i paid.I didn't take it to Ebay or charge a fee.I was hoping i could trade it for a fussybutt but that didn't happen.I gotta say i am bummed that a few people got 3-4 diapers for themselves at Fussybutt but didn't share but oh well.She doesn't stock often so i guess you gotta get what you can.As for the newbies i did not realize the TP situation but i posted on Diapering what i had.I gave brand new Fluffymail at face value to 2 mama's who have never gotten the chance to get them before.I feel good about it.

You would hope that it's a case of someone nice thinking "well I'm in and I can buy so I'll grab a heap and help others out". But I suspect it's more often a case of "I can buy this dipe for $25 and probably get $50 for it on ebay". I hate that.

I think part of it is the fun of the stalk and lack of self control. I know I've been sitting here when that email comes across and rushed to buy something I didn't need. It's freaking fun. Of course I usually keep them anyway. :

Though, frankly, I can see the frustration when you sat there all morning trying so hard and someone else walks away with like 8 things they don't want and all you wished for was 1.

That is really sad I don't ebay that often so I must miss all the reselling but I can't see buying stuff just to ebay it for profit :

I am afraid of that too. And it makes those dipes seem less attractive to me.

I ADORE FM dipes. I'd pay almost anything for a couple more NLs but I don't even bother going to stockings there anymore because by the time I get an email notice, the store is empty.

I just don't like the hogging of dipes you don't intend to use. It feels greedy to me.
