    Here is a breakdown on what the settings you posted do.

    min= max(110% crafting, 21g) , This is the minimum price that TSM will post an item at. The "max()" portion will have TSM use which ever of the values listed in the parentheses is larger. 110% crafting will be the value that TSM figures it takes to craft an item. 21g is 21 gold. If the crafting cost is larger than 21g it will use that value, if not then it will post at 21g.

    nor= max (100% dbmarket , 130% crafting), This is what TSM will post an item at if there are no other auctions up. As explained above "max" will either post which ever value is larger, 100% dbmarket = the market price of the item from the TSM dbmarket database, or the 130% crafting cost.

    max= max (125% dbmarket, 500G) is the max value that TSM will post an item out. In this cast it will use the which ever value is larger 125% of the market price or 500 gold.

    We're talking about the profit you want to make. 110% crafting is, for example on an item with 25g crafting cost, 27g50s minimum profit meaning 52g50s minimum post price. I think you meant 2g50s profit for a 27g50s minimum post price?

    100% crafting indicates you want 100% return on your investment. 110% crafting is 110% return on your investment. These margins are crazy in most situations. For glyphs it does happen but I think you were looking for 10% return on your crafting cost?
    @Potsu No this is incorrect. ^^

    110% crafting = the cost of the mats +10%

    glyph mats cost 3 ink say 5g per ink that is 15g per glyph plus the partchment so 15g 25s (for easy counting sake) 10% of the crafting cost is 1g 52s 5c.

    Where Crafting is used in pricing you always want the % to be above 100% or you are making a loss.

    If Auction DB, WowuctionDB is used you may wish to use 70% of the value as your lowest point price

    Edited for clarity

    I deleted it before seeing your reply so I though I was all good and no one had seen it =P
