Oh, Bij1 is the former Art1kel?
I did not know that yet. Good to know. Thanks.

(Yes, I called them "artéénkel" as that was their logo. In the same way I called that group that once sang in the Eurovision song contest "Ogdriene" instead of ogene.)

Didn't read through all the comments so far, but I guess all Americans are like "Whoa! You have more than 2 parties?!?!" Yeah, well, it comes with pros and cons, though I think generally the pros outweigh the cons. But sometimes I exaggerate that in a few years time, we will have more part...

Just read the OP. I fully agree with mods if they don't tolerate ACAB or any other "all X are Y". Even though there are cops that have other morals than you would expect from a cop, as demonstrated in multiple parts of the world recently, this doesn't automatically imply that all cops are ...

If I would have sold mine for 2.00, someone else only had sell his for 1.99 and I would be stuck with a card no one would buy at that price. I thought selling it for 0.01 while someone was bidding 2.00 for it, was a sure deal for 1.01 One Bank is a very large amount for someone like me and I would h...

How are multiple asks/bids handled?

I think an error has been made. Or there is a bug in the system. Or the system is rigged by a user. I assumed the following: ⋅ When there are multiple bids and just one ask (lower than the lowest bid), the ask and the highest bid will trade (so, the highest bid will get to buy the card at ...

As a fighter for human rights, the VW53ALandian Government cannot neglect the rights of humans in other nations. VW53ALand will stand up against violations of such basic rights.
A proposal, as decent as the current one, should - no must - have our fullest support.

That would be an obvious first step indeed. I should have thought of that myself. Following the unchecking of the box which controls whether I receive a notice when I receive a Telegram, I did (as expected) not receive any notice when receiving a TG. However, re-checking the box again, immediately g...

I second this issue. Every time I receive a TG, I am also getting two notices. All other notices come single. It's just the receipt of telegrams that's noticed double. It is indeed just a nuisance, not an emergency. Yet I would be very happy if it could be resolved ... in due time. For possible furt...

Correct, you can bid and buy. However, returning to the reaction before, where you quoted me; You can only bid and buy until your money runs out. At that moment, you have to sell (or junk) cards in order to make money. I find it highly unlikely that Koem Kab has a capacity of only ...say 100, or eve...

For instance, though not limiting to, cremation is a largely widespread treatment of deceased. We think desecration of fo...
