    Ok so this evening the Demonous had an issue with the auction house http://vboards.stratics.com/uo-rares-collector/251417-scam-has-taken-place-silent-auction-house.html . We've all been there and if you haven't then you will eventually. Anyway, now he and Sundina have agreed to pay for the item, a huge sum of 1.2 billion. Now as collectors we have something of a negative reputation. In fact I've heard several people refer to the rares fest as "Greed Fest." Perhaps we can't change everyone's impression of us, but we can perhaps help out one of our own. It just doesn't seem right for Demonous and Sundina to do us this great service with the auction house, which they are going to continue to do for the duration of the festival, AND pay that large sum. Lets keep in mind that they do not make any gold off of this and now they cannot even enjoy the festival.

    Now in the other thread Blend mentioned donations, I think thats a great idea. Now as I am short of on gold at the moment I am going to donate an item instead. I have a Babycakes Oven up for bids in the auction. All of the proceeds will now go to the house. So whatever you have, be it items or gold donations, dig deep friends!

    GOLD
    Angel Dust 15 Mill
    Manticore 100 Mill
    Faeryl 25 Mill
    Gareth 50 Mill
    Wootsauce 100 Mill
    Europa Trader 100 Mill
    Apetul 50.000.001 Mill
    Blend 100 Mill
    Clops 100 Mill

    ITEMS
    Athelas Babycakes Oven
    Restroom Cowboy An Kal Lem Statue
    Tam Fibril Of The Gyre Of Existence
    Promathia Unwilling Victim Of Bellatrix Adhara's Crystal Widow Abomination

    He is right. 1.2 billion is nothing if we all chip in. I'll put up 100 mil.

    I can think of at least 10 collectors that can drop 100 mil and not even break a sweat right now.

    Lets go guys and gals!

    50,000,000 gold from Kijustsu Anei Village on Chesapeake

    (Thank you Demon Slayer and Sundina for helping to safe guard players from townships as well, we are easy targets for scammers to take advantage of and you two have personally taken it upon yourselves to protect us, so lucky for us we had you two for the Chesapeake festivals along with Lineman. I'll try to get more together and maybe one day when we become all grown up Rare collectors we can help out more *smiles*)

    Transaction completed with Demonous. Thanks for all that you do and don't let this get you down. Your track record in the past speaks for itself.

    Well I drop the price on set to 1,1b

    Reserved was 1b so I think I will do a little to help if I drop the price on item with 100m.

    I think the above donations should just about do it. Feel free to bid on the donated items (for good cause) at the local Rares fest Silent Auction House! Happy bidding! :thumbup1:

    Athelas,

    Let me know if the sale items + gold is short and I'll make up the difference.

    Sorry this happened to you two, but the rares community DOES have some people that are honest and care about our collective reputations.
    Your reputation is intact. Years of stellar trading is why.

    Thanks for your honesty in telling us about what happened.

    Lets round up the usual suspects. I blame shinobi. Even if he's innocent, I still blame him.

    2nd, any gold needed let me know.

    i appreciate everyone help i really do, its just a shame you have to use your hard earned gold on something like that, we can assure you that nothing like this will happen again, it was a lazy mistake on our part and i should have made sure it was actually the right person, then again UO is one of the few games that allows you to name your character the same name as another person with that name which kind of sucks... but was still a dumb mistake, thanks again for everyones donations !

    Well dang guys, I posted in the other thread before finding this one but man all I did was go to work and I missed it. The "big folks" got in and covered it before the little folks even had a chance......kinda gives you that warm fuzzy feeling and stuff.....that said....IF something happens and you come up short I can throw in 25mil, just let me know and I'll get it sent to Atlantic....(already spent what I transferred for the festival hehe)

    First off I'd like to thank all of the folks who so freely gave their gold and hard earned items. Everyone really came together to take care of this, I for one am truly proud to be a part of this community.

    That said, I think this thread has served its purpose. Thanks again to all who participated. If any of you who pledged are still looking for a place to deposit gold please Pm me and we'll get that worked out.
