I've started diving again, dumpster diving that is. And I've noticed that most of the items are from admin. Now what I want to know is do any of you trash your items or do you just save them all. Or maybe you just sell them for gold. Regardless of what of what you do tell me why.

I never trash items. I either sell them, or donate if they're worthless.

Sometimes I find worthless items in the dumpster and put them right back. lol I wonder if it's possible to acquire items from dumpster dive that you donated yourself...
That would be fun. To see your own name pop up while diving through trash.

I normally just sell it back. Or if its an item that I can create things with I'll just save it.

If there is a sell-back price of at least 100, I sell it back. If not, I click the donate button to put it back into the Dumpster Dive inventory.

If it says the average MP value is above 1,000, I double check to see if I can still sell it at that price. If not, it goes back into the dumpster.

I trash a lot of items, especially the ones I hate getting out of the dive.

I hoard the vast majority of it.

I hit up dumpster dive everyday. I'll do an inventory clean out when I get really bored, otherwise my junk from the dumpster just builds up in my inventory.

When I do my occasional inventory clean out it is a mixture of selling stuff and sending stuff back to the dumpster.

I normally trash anything worth less than five gold. If it's something worth my time selling, I might do it. Normally things like trash and flowers and the occasional valuable get donated. It's only fair, I feel. That's what I'm looking for myself.

I'll throw it back it if it's truely worthless, with no sellback and impossible to sell on the MP.

So... Aquarium backgrounds and not much else.

I'll trash items whenever possible, as a favor to everyone emotion_awesome Because really, no one needs another retro tv for a dead feature.

Yup it is.
I've donated items to the dumpster on my mules, then dived in on another account, and get the item (particularly when Gaia is not very active) again.
It's a 'ohdarnit, i was trying to get rid of that' moment.

@topic
I trash mostly paper, flowers, and el cheapo aquarium and housing items myself, and sell or hoard anything else (particularly ink bottles heart )
Nearly anything with a sell back price I will sell back right in my invo (Ocean Summer Tops are a favorite), unless it's grossly inflated on the MP, then I sell it there.

I trash bugs sometimes, and a lot of aquarium stuff. Sometimes pinball items. Or really cheap things that I won't wear. Like those skittles face paints or such.

If I can sell it, I just sell it usually.

If it doesn't have a sellback, and it's cheap and won't sell quickly, I'll donate. Though honestly I've donated 50k items before just for the hell of it. Mostly it's bugs and trash and flowers though.. :<
