This may be an issue that has already been addressed, (and perhaps this is not even an issue for others), but it seems that gear sold in packages is always problematic. I am not talking about a thread with multiple items sold individually, but rather when a bunch of gear is named with a group price only. The reason this doesn't seem to work is it seems the gear is almost never sold as a group, but rather broken up eventually anyway. However, before that time, people try to claim items IF the items are not sold as a group. This is where it always seems to get confusing and problematic. I always see "I'll take it if willing to sell uq on it's own." By the time the items are broken up, someone that had a first claim is not the end buyer, due to confusion and pricing questions and other confusing complications.
I don't know what the protocol is for this, or even if I am speaking out of turn and let this be an issue for the mods, but I propose to not allow items to be sold as groups, to avoid issues and complications.
With that, I know there are times that people have smaller items such as whoopies, straps, dutch gear, etc... I think that those should be allowed to sell with included shipping if buying other gear... Or ship at buyers expense if they really want that item on it's own. This way, if someone wants a bunch of the little items that do not sell on their own, they can still purchase with the shipping expense themselves, or buy bigger items to make it worth the seller's shipping costs.
I hope this thread does not offend anyone, and I think things run very smoothly overall. This is just my opinion on what I have observed. I mention it not because I want to change anything about HF, but because I appreciate it's integrity and want to see it stay intact
