dear sellers of gems

Have you no respect for yourselves? Do you believe your product to be worth less then vendor value? Do you believe in undercutting not by a mere silver or 3, but by 100 gold?

I SAY NAY!

Now is the time for us to shine, our product in full demand as ever, as the server livens, thrives and epics continue to rain down upon us, and need gems. 65g? Psh, a mere 4 dailies eclipses this cost, with room for a repair bill to spare! 100g? Oooh, they covered the gold they got from LFR. But I say dream big! i see gems being worth their true value, 200 gold! Also, for those of you who post gems below 20 gold, let alone under 10 gold, FOR SHAME!

It is not a "mere click of a button", it was farming to get JC that high, the agonizing "what cut will I get today," the time spent to prospect, the time to put up gems on the AH, with the expensive fee, let alone cut they take, that makes our product so worthwhile. Blizzard has enabled us to be able to make gold, let us do so!

Seriously, people put some gems up under vendor value? For shame.

We should form a trade union...!!!

But really, prices will bounce back with the supplies dropping at this rate.

It's actually not against the ToS to fix prices, but it doesn't really work when people outside the group just undercuts everybody.

The best tip I can give to fight those deep undercuts is to buy and resell, but that comes with some risk too of course. I read this auction guide a few years ago and it's really helpful to deal with these kinds of situations: http://greedygoblin.blogspot.com/2009/09/industry-part-2.html

its the people who undercut a gem from 250g to 99g, and then from 99g to 35g that really grind my gears. idgaf if you undercut me by 1%, thats my margin and good business on your part.
