I got a game from a trader here, and when I received it it looked like it went through a terrible resurfacing process. There were several lines that ran from the middle of the disc to the outer edge. I had to pay for it to be professionally resurfaced.

Should I mention this in the trader feedback thread, or just ignore since all it took was a resurfacing to fix it?

PM the seller, explain, and try to work things out first. If it was an honest mistake, give them a chance to make good.

Yeah, airing problems with another trader in the feedback forum is tantamount to slamming them publicly, even if you don't actually give them a negative point. At best you'll just offend them and put them on the defensive.

Talk it out with them or seek out a third party (like a moderator) to arbitrate if the other party is open to the idea. By the time you post about it in feedback, try to have exhausted all your options.

But once you HAVE exhausted those options and it is obvious the other party is both in the wrong and unreasonable, then you SHOULD post about it in feedback. We protect each other that way.

I hope things work out for you!

Can somebody do me a favor real quick?
I'm trying to figure up shipping costs but I don't own a scale.

What's a turbografx weigh with power supply/rf adapter/ and controller?
I'm not lazy! I just won't have enough time for a trip to the Post Office this weekend.

Can anybody help me out? Please?

you should just use a Medium Flat Rate Priority box for that. $11 shipped to anywhere in the US.

it SHOULD. Imean, I haven't owned a TG16 in a while, but I don't remember it being THAT big.

EDIT: if so, then a LARGE priority box is what? $14 anywhere in the US. And that thing fit the Xbox I recently traded.

They have two types of Medium Flat Rate boxes, it would definitely fit in the flatter one.
