Wonderful post with some genuinely great suggestions! +Karma!
But please remember, everyone, if you opt to go the plvling path, protect yourself and ask a GS to be the mediator by holding the money/items/whatever until the plvling is finished. There are WAY too many plvl scammers out there and nobody wants to waste time and/or money on scammers. We'll always be happy to help you guys out.
