It so unfortunate. If only all the people asking for help, would take 30 seconds of their time to edit the wiki when they finished.

Yep, people should also update after they actually sell.

That's already praiseworthy, that requires you to log on and all that complicated stuff. You ask, others answer, you update wiki. Easy as pie.

I'm sure just about anyone would give you at least .5 for Marriot right now, and the wiki claims .6. I wouldn't be surprised if that's true.
Noobies give a fresh perspective on things which may appear stale to the experienced :)

Doubt it will make the price go up.

As it is, 1.6 is only giving a 20% discount off published prices. There's not much more room for a TA (buying points) to offer his client a significant discount and still make something worthwhile off the ticket.
Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

+1000
I have no idea @Palm tights point there was. As well as his posting rates for miles that brokers charge TA's to which the common folk have no access to.
