Of course I can't name names. But I wanted to discuss members of the community who commission, bid and buy an absurd amount of art, specifically things that are considered YCH's.
Once or twice I've encountered some of these individuals in pieces I was interested in, and even seeing their name has been intimidating enough to either resign early, or straight out autobuy. Because these individuals will buy 6, 10, 15 pieces a month and spend $2000, $3000 like it's no object. and these people often have pieces of the same character in the triple digits.
What's people's opinion on this? Is it something out of control that shouldn't be able to be abused to the degree it is . Or is it something "poor" people just have to suck up and get over?
*To be clear, I am specifically referring to people who have completely gone off the deep end, buying 10-15 pieces in a month all for the same character, and almost jealously getting into bidding wars with anyone who challenges their chance at a piece she or he wants*
Can't help but feel a little angry when I decide to get an art piece, I usually get one once every 2-3 months.. but could get more if I wanted... nevertheless, start having pieces I like picked off by the same individual sometimes multiple times in a week. I've become so fed up with it I've considered contacting the person directley to voice my grievances. It's neither of our faults that we like the same artists, but it's gotten bad enough I've pretty much abandoned FA
