The problem I see with this is what if they see your post and change theirs? now you have false or incorrect prices. I will ask around with the mods but I think it best if you don't.

I would say i agree with lore, the other thought that springs to mind is that if you are comparing prices it would have to be without names otherwise you leave yourself open to complaints. There is also the potential for animosity to arise meaning that things become far more competitive and flaming wars/sabotages take place.

In theory the idea is a good one, however theory and practicality sometimes do not go hand in hand.

Agreed.

I think it would be most fair to say that "most people are currently charging..."

or something like that... :D
