Elaborate joke ? Given the time we spend chasing scams, that wouldn't be too funny.

Perhaps an invitation not to take ourselves too seriously ... I hope so ... it's felt like a battleground here recently on many occasions. And it's exhausting ...
I commend the good job being done by many members in this respect

Here's hoping its a pure prank, but whatever it is, it's definitely comedy and nothing to get too invested in ;)

Hahahahaha. It sure made me laugh!! A very well constructed joke. And a huge poke at the activity of this forum. Perhaps its time for everyone to lighten up...

Based on the allusions, it's someone who's either done a lot of background reading... or has been along for the ride.

I do assume it's a prank... a prank with enough bite to be extra-funny...

I have my own guess as to who's behind it, which if correct would be a pleasant surprise...

...but I can think of more likely candidates as well.

Whoever it is deserves a stand-up Slow Clap!

Are you hinting at something Michael ? Maybe the similarity of handpansforsale main image - cloudy sky with handpans - and your avatar photo is no coincidence ? It is not you, or is it??? :shock: :D :lol:

Oh and I really loved that one:

Hi, I’m interested in buying this PANArt Hang Dum.
But 290 euros is overpriced in my opinion, I can offer 200 euros. Is that OK ?
Tell me the cost of shipping. I am in the south of France.
Best,
B.

Hello B.,
considering the rarity our 290 Euro offer is remarkable cheap. So we cannot agree to your suggested price. But we will be able to offer you a Dum for 7.50 Euro very soon. As you can read on our website we are currently developing our revolutionary MePan project.
Additional to our upcomming handpan production we will also produce Dums using the 3D printing techniques. We call them MeDum. We will offer the MeDum in several colors: Red, green, blue, black and white. So let us know which color you want and we will send your personal MeDum to you as soon as possible.
Best regards
Teddy King

'Dumm' in German = silly, dumb, foolish or stupid :giggle:

EDIT: Oh no, how embarrassing! He was referring to the Panart Dum that goes into the Gu! Forgot about that one! :blush:
