Creations for charity sales records

This is a list of my 40 most recent sales, those without shipping charges indicate a purchase from Creations for Charity, where 100% of the amount paid by the buyer will be used to buy LEGO for Toys for Tots. 3 additional sales were conducted outside of the Bricklink system, bringing the total amount raised to $2010.

    2010? How eerily appropriate
  • Captain Redstorm 6y

    ^ Dang. You beat me to it. :P

    What if people do not want their names published on your flickr? And maybe they were surprise gifts for their children? I really think you need to re-examine this post. You may be violating a law. You ARE violating people's privacy without asking permission.
  • Genghis Don 6y

    ^ Hm. I think that's a fair point. Maybe their usernames on BL would be better.
  • Bluesecrets 6y

    I don't think bricklink user names is appropriate either. Privacy is privacy. I highly doubt each and every person consented to their names or usernames to be published by another on a flickr page.

    Congrats on a very successful event, Nannan! Phipson and I were discussing it yesterday, and I was wondering what the final total was.
  • Nannan Zhang 6y

    Thanks Mark. As for the $2010, I chipped in a few extra cents to make it an even number :)

    -Bluesecrets: there's no harm in listing Bricklink usernames since they are available to the public on the Bricklink website. The message here is not about violating any privacy, rather it is to recognize buyers for their support for charity.
  • Bluesecrets 6y

    It is about privacy. Unless you have permission from each and every person on that list to post their names or bricklink usernames, you have violated privacy. They gave permission to Bricklink to post their information. Not to you. And even then, Bricklink does not post the price of their auctions to the public and details of that transaction. You have. It is inappropriate, and impolite. As well it very well could be violating a US Federal Law.

    Yes I get that this is about charity, but thanking someone for their support does not have to be public, nor should it include private information.

    Some people, prefer their acts of charity to be anonymous, which you decided on your own was not an option. Also, inappropriate and impolite.

    This may be something you may need to educate yourself about:

    Not that my opinion matters to anybody else, but I have to agree with Blue^, though for charity issues, not privacy.

    Being publicly acknowledged as an altruist kinda kicks humility in the balls, doesn't it? Giving is about "giving" and not receiving anything back in the form of recognition etc... Whatever you get out of it should be limited to how the act makes *you* feel.

    Even if for some reason there is no problem with posting usernames, and I'm not saying there is or isn't, showing the amount spent is, I think, a great invasion of privacy. One can pretty much check who has bought from any given store by looking at the feedback. One cannot though find out how much though.

    It's kind of on the lines of a bank saying that so and so is a customer, or the bank saying that so and so has X amount of dollars in the account. Finances are something that, unless explicitly given permission, should remain confidential. How much a person spends on something is nobody’s business.

    Except, most of these are auctions, and you can see how much they paid because the auctions are kept on record on this page

    Privacy Laws? People have way too much time on their hands. Thanks Nannan for hosting this charity auction, which allowed me to add some great builders to my collection of mocs.

    Cheers man.

    Perhaps the user names can be blackened out for privacy as some people may not be comfortable for reasons mentioned above by others.
    Although I doubt Nannan is braking any laws here. On eBay, when you check people's feedback you can see exactly what they bought, what they sold and for how much. It is available for everyone to see. I never liked this feature, as it is nobody's business what I buy and for how much, but it is there...)c:
    I'm sure eBay would be aware if this is against any law.
    BTW, I'm VERY impressed with this effort. Thanks for the great job, Nannan!
