    BTW what do you call a camelback rule for scraping in Dutch. I have been looking for a small one but a Google search without a name is a bit steap.

        What does that mean in Dutch? I always thought the American "Camel Back" colloquialism was odd.

          A "brug" is a bridge.
          A "rei" is a long(ish), small width line reference.

          A "brugrei" is a height stiffened reference, with only one contact area.

          As the stiffening can be roundish the camels come in to the picture, but no camels in Holland.

            Yes thank you. It Googles up to something useful and realy expensive or..maconnary items. Got enough of those
            Putting the name into the search engine of Marktplaats, the youngest daughter of Ebay, i come up with a ground steel version that could be used as a camelback when accurate enough.

            Looks like a Chinese markings on the side. I have got a smaller Polak copy of this one in steel.
            This item will go out of my pricerange.

              MCS,
              How does Marktplaats work? Is it like eBay where you bid against others or are you just making an offer and hoping that it is accepted by the advertiser?
              I notice that against the heading 'prijs' there is an abbreviation Notk - is that the Dutch abbreviation for make an offer?

                Michael,

                Marktplaats is indeed different to Ebay - there's no time limit on the "auction" (it's not an auction). The seller might put the price he's after, you can offer anything you like and see if he'll take it. A lot of stuff goes unsold.

                NOTK - nader overheen te komen - we'll agree on a price.
                TEAB - tegen elke aannemelijk bod - open to every acceptable/reasonable bid

                  @ form_change:

                  The Dutch abbreviation "notk" > niet overeen te komen, translates to
                  something like: non negotiable, having a set price. Most of the time you
                  are urged to contact the seller to find out what his asking price is.

                  As you stated, most of the time you bid against others. Your offer has to be accepted by the seller.
                  There is no deadline however when, or if he will sell. So phoning or emailing the seller to ask him what he thinks of your bid is needed.
                  And even if you have the highest bid, it is no guaranty that you will get it without conversation back and forth until the seller picks you and closes the deal.

                  Hope this helps.

                  Regards,

                  Danny

                    I see that Ian has replied in a similar way as me above.

                    His take on the abbreviation is also valid, in a way.
                    But to exclude confusion, when you want a price to be negotiable, you don't want to be ambiguous with the abbreviation.
                    Either the price is not negotiable (notk) or it is (otk).

                    In the end it is up to the seller who he picks.
                    Someone who can pick the goods up versus shipping it to, say, Australia, then the local pick up always wins. (less hassle for the seller)

                    Regards,

                    Danny

                      @Dannyw:

                      Ian B is right, NOTK means: nader overeen te komen, we'll negotiate on it.

                      Marktplaats is our recycling site, people can buy things where other people wont to get rid off.

                      The above mentioned seller has also a phone number, I saw the bid was 60 euro. If the contraption is worth 80 euro to someone, just phone and ask: "Would you sell it for 80 euro?".

                      Although I see that the bid is already up and about 50% of what these things cost new, which makes the decision easier.

                      There is no better reference than a new reference with a guarantee.

                        Yea-but ... Then what is the abbreviation of non negotiable? Nnotk?? (unusual)

                        Not that is matters in any way.
                        Buyer and seller contact each other all the time and it soon becomes clear to both what it is that each one looks for.

                        The meaning - or whatever one thinks it stands for - of the abbreviation, is soon forgotten.
                        It is enough for the prospect buyer to make contact to serve its purpose.

                        Regards,

                          Just had a quick look on Marktplaats for reference.

                          A non negotiable price is just a price without any abbreviation, it's fixed.
                          Then there is n.o.t.k, a price to be agreed on.
                          And t.e.a.b. (tegen elk aannemelijk bod), against any acceptable offer.

                            For me, a bit like MSC discribed, Marktplaats only works when i email or call the seller asking what he had in mind. Placing a bid will make the "auction" go on and on for ever.
                            It also gives me the opportunity to get a feel of what this person in on about.
                            Don't want to spent half a day in a car for a vague appontment. Holland is not that big, it just takes that long.
                            Not being a binding auction it must be the advertisingfees that are paying for the server.
                            At the time of the Ebay takeover the started to allow busines ads and links.
                            The ever so funny "auction" are the ones where people are bidding half price on a new item that is obviously sitting in one of the internetshops
                            Most of time the items that are without a guideline for the asking price are a hopeless case of negotiation.

                            I agree on notk nader overeen te komen: we will see. Nope not with petrol at 1,5 euros a liter.

                              Thanks for the responses guys. It sounds like the marktplaats system is more like a newspaper classified than the auction sites that I'm used to.
                              I'm not planning on bidding (not speaking Dutch and being in Australia as someone noted are 2 reasons), but it's interesting to see how these things are done.
                              We have one auction site here in Oz that is a hybrid between an eBay auction and a traditional one. It's most annoying feature is that to win you have to be the highest bidder at closing time and there not having been a bid within 10 minutes of the close. As a result you can be waiting 1/2 an hour or more after the scheduled close to see whether you have won...
