Here is your original post,
So... I joined Horrorbid.com in the beginning whith the idea that this te would become something big, HOPING that this would be a great place to sell masks AND props. Seems that over a year after the creation the te has become a show floor for masks that flood the market every year at Halloween. These masks do not sell well on here and show evidence of a STAGNET auction. Where is the good stuff ?? Where are the movie props ? Where are the original pieces ?? Now, granted there are some that have tried to bring original pieces to the te ( A refreshing breath of fresh air ) but maybe I and ( MANY ) other had taken it the wrong way ? Is this supposed to be a webte created to sell original art, props, and masks ? Or is this a te to regergitate the same masks over and over again ? Now.... I myself left Horrorbid.com quite some time ago due to inactivity, but I do check in from time to time to see if things have changed. I looked again this morning, ( It has been 6 mos. nce I last looked ) Same Ol SH*T, the props section is filled with masks... the mask section is filled with masks and NOTHING is moving. Same Stagnet auction te.... I do see that the forum has allot of movement....lol, is this webte to become a forum or do you plan on pushing and selling the auction ??
I do hope to see things get better ~ I for one think Horrorbid is a great idea. But if you want people to take this webte seriously you will need to push originality and stop pushing the recasters as well as the people who flood the market with the masks you see at Spencers ts. "Not to say that these arent good masks" I can remember artists who listed work on here that blew me away.... its sad to see the hype turn into BLAH...
See you in another 6 mos.
I am leaving you with some of my work
( Not the best in the world by far - BUT its mine )

And here is my resoponse to your latest post....
Again I am always up for a friendly debate and I appreciate you brining up points that need to be addressed. That we can agree on. You mentioned eBay, it's tough to go up against them, lol! Look at our auctions as a clasfied section and please don't compare us to eBay, that's not what we are trying to be and I understand the confuon. After all we are HorrorBid and we did start out soley as an auction te, but we have evolved. And we have turned into a collecting community that focuses on horror movie news, reviews and so on. The auction de of things will always be there but again we can't force people to use us over eBay nor do we want to.
However, if you have some items for sale that you want to list on a horror only webte and your not in a hurry to get rid of them, right now our auction te is a viable option. Will it ever be more than that, who knows. We sure hope so but if it doesn't we still have a great community at to be frank with you we keep the lights on around here based off adverting dollars and the more people we have coming to the te (which right now is at an all time high) and not the amount of auctions up help make the te funds. That then gets pumped back into the te to upgrade and pay for adverting the HBid itself.
So again, we want you to list your items on HorrorBid, auctions are a pason of ours as is collecting but if you don't then you don't. HorrorBid is a community now, not just an auction te.
Thanks again and glad we can discuss this profesonally.
