Occasionally I do it for the right reason, I want everything on the page. A little while ago someone had a book that was all covers from the 1980 Russia Olympics. I thought about it and decided they would go nicely with my Russia collection so I used the "purchase whole page" option gladly and would have used a "purchase whole book" option if it existed. Another time I cleared out a book of early Ireland overprints for the same reason - I wanted everything on the pages. Lately a book came up that had a whole page of early stamps from a certain country I collected and used the "purchase whole page" option right away so no one could beat me to some of the stamps on the page. Wrong decision, I only needed one stamp on the page! Why do you people out there in StampoRamaLand use the option and have you ever regretted it?

"so no one could beat me to some of the stamps on the page"



Oh Dear! Oh Dear! Oh Dear!

Shall we say your "competitive nature" has come to the fore and let you down.

There is a moral here, somewhere, where, over there (points finger).

You are not alone. We have all done it at sometime or other.

Congratulations!!

You have taken the first step towards regaining the moral high-ground.

The first step to recovery is recognising that your morals have slipped.

The second step to recovery is sharing the problem with others.

The third step to recovery is saying to yourself "Stuff this for a game of soldiers" and reverting back to before your conscience forced you to inexplicably say that damning phrase:-

"so no one could beat me to some of the stamps on the page"




Yippee!!!!.......LaughingLaughing

re: Reason's for using "purchase whole page"

I will on occasion use the purchase whole page option out of sheer laziness, but I only do so when I truly want the vast majority of the stamps shown. Its considerably more convenient than scrolling back and forth and clicking individually, especially for larger books.
My purchases also happen to be in the "lower end" of the cost spectrum, so a few extra dimes here and there isn't too taxing on the budget, and the extras might be upgrades from what I have already.

I'm rarely "first to the kill", so its often more of a "purchase what's left of the page" anyway! When I come to a SOLD OUT page heading, I just skip right on to the next page... no sense looking at what I missed....

My only regret is when I browse at work (on breaks, of course!).... I don't have my collection handy, and I tend to "think" I need something that I really don't!
