Closed until I finish the trades I'm in
-Let's start with the really obvious one; I don't trade for money. That would be illegal. I don't trade for blank tapes either.
-I trade equal amounts; none of that trade ratio stuff. The minimum amount I trade is 2 hours. I don't have a maximum.
-If you use VHS, please use a new, name-brand tape when trading with me. I only make DVDs for trades nowadays, but I can still use VHS tapes with no problem. For VHS, I use either Sony, TDK, or Memorex; they are very good quality. I shy away from Fuji and Magnavox, because other traders have had problems with them. I also avoid RCA; I found out the hard way that they wear out extremely easily.
-As for DVDs, I ask that you don't put paper labels on them. They really mess with my DVD players. Please use SP speed for DVDs; anything less really takes a toll on the video quality. I'll do the same for you. I typically use Memorex DVDs, but I've had good luck with Maxell and Sony as well.
-I love commercials; I'm one of those guys who spends hours on YouTube watching old commercials. So if I'm requesting an original broadcast with the commercials intact, regardless of how old the show is, please leave them in. If the commercials right before & after the show are intact, keep them in too!
-A few episodes in my collection originated from YouTube or some other video site. I usually don't do this unless there's no other copy of the show/episode on the circuit. If you have any questions as to the origin of an episode, let me know and I'll answer it to the best of my abilities.
-I don't like to leave too much empty space on tapes or discs. So if there is any room left after your requests are in, I'll let you know so you can pick extra stuff. And naturally, I'd appreciate it if you did the same for me. ;)
-If I decline a trade or am closed, don't sweat; you can always try at a later time. And you can also contact the other traders on my thanks page; they're all good traders, and I'm sure they'd love to hear from you.
