Don't remember that place, but i did order back in the days some dvd-r's on extremely rare movies from:

Trash Palace
http://www.trashpalace.com/

and

Luminous
http://www.lfvw.com/

Nice sites...But I guess last thing Kenneth wanted with this thread was promotion of DVD-R places :D :D :D

Yes, but both places also sell original dvd's and trash palace also has plenty of original ex-rentals for sale! :tapelove:

Right :D

*As of my previous post which was deleted in the "trade section" I didn't blame the practice of such trades but made people aware of the danger of a certain individual due to multiple bad experiences by many. period.

peace :hello!:

I just wanna keep this place peaceful...Nothing against you B)

If you go to my old house you'll find tons of VHS copies that I bought from Video Search of Miami. Anyone here remembers them? Not always good quality, but tons of rare titles really impossible to find in old times before internet - that came in Greece a bit delayed by the way...

Now I'm looking at these tapes and say "hm, tons of garbage", but those glory years they were my whole life. And other stores like Video Vortex...

The point is that many people cannot spend fortunes on the original stuff and prefer the copies and the download - and this makes them happy.


New Room possible?
Thanx B)
I make it two rooms, one for sell/swap (offers) and one for wants...

We are adults. When someone sells a copy and another buys with pleasure then is OK for me.

It's like if you buy a VHS for 1 single Euro in a bazaar and sell it 150 in a forum just because you can exploit the collectors' needs. You cannot call it ethical but the fact is that you make the collectors happy.

And I beleive that if you swap copies is 100% the same as if you sell them. Because of course you have profit - the free goodies you get back.

Also if you download movies you become a partner of that site indeed.

You might want to split the trade-section into two sections: Sale and buy.
Occasionally I stumble upon new topics thinking, wow, he's selling that tape! But when I take a closer look, it turns out somebody wants to buy stuff.

If nothing else people: At least, put "wanted" in the headline if you are buying stuff.

I'll stop babbling now. :lol:

Thinking again about it I really find it a great idea. In fact "Trades" room seems too big with many updates and sometimes you cannot recognize the "Wanted" posts easily so I think seriously to seperate sales & wants in two rooms soon :D

The way I read it he's not talking abut other dealers. He's asking if WE (i.e. the members here) would sell dvd-r copies of films (sell as in sell for money, not swapping).

Yes, right, we say the same thing. And I talked about myself :D

I suppose you mean the Pre-Cert one?

Why not the Greek version also if it's on Cinehollywood and i guess you have it in your collection! ;)

I have just one and I don't sell it, sorry...

Right, Jack :angry:

But I think Kenneth's post was against the dealers who sell copies from their rare VHS. He thinks this is not ethical. If I understand he thinks it's an exploitation of their collection to make money.

In fact I could agree even if it sounds a bit weird B)
But I still think these seller circulate the profits in tapes etc
I mean I can't imagine they take it as a serious job :unsure:

In fact this is my situation, I'm completely broke these days because I spent a lot for movies (and music, OK, my other love and collection)

Accusing people...
Guys...

Please don't use this space here for accusations against people just because you had a bad trade with them.

Especially when they did nothing worse than being a bit lazy (for example...)

As I explained many times I really hate this kind of things. Please try to understand. There are so many forum & blogs around that you can go and do it if you like.

And you bring me in a very difficult position as I'm a friend of some of the people you accuse.

Just because you had a bad experience with someone this doesn't make him a criminal you know.

Try to solve your problem in a polite way. Of course you can post & talk in the forum about your problem seeking advise & help, but a single trade problem doesn't give you the right for accusations & characterizations like "fraud", "criminal", "arsehole" etc etc

I'll delete any posts (or parts of them) with things like that, sorry...

I really don't care...
We are fetichist collectors and DVD-Rs have nothing to do with that...

I see...Maybe the whole thing is exploitation...but I beleive that still comes from people who love the films.
