    I am opening an Atlantic Open Auction House for shame loot. :)

    My auction house is located two and a half screens Northwest of Britain moongate.

    I am opening this place so I don't have to post a million pictures to stratics to try to auction them off, instead I can have a huge auction go on all at once and not have to worry about any 15 minute rule or stuff like that.

    There are all types of artifacts here ranging from lesser magic item to a legendary artifact.

    Every item has a corresponding bag to the east of it. All bags are locked down and anyone can see inside of them and place books inside, but they cannot retrieve any books.

    A bidder grabs a book and whatever said bidder wants to bid on an item, said bidder writes their bid as the name of the book and their contact information inside the book. Then the bidder places the book into the corresponding bag for the item they are bidding on.

    There is a minimum of 500k bids on all items. No buy outs.

    The great thing about my auction is that no one can wait til the last minute to place a bid and win. I will give the day all auctions will end, but it will end whenever I decide to close it that day or whenever I log on to close.

    The house name will let you know if all auctions are closed or open and when the auction will end.
    Whatever items don't get sold will be trashed.
    Anyone who trolls or messes with anything they're not supposed to be messing with will be banned indefinitely.

    Happy Bidding :D
    My icq is - 673012665 for any questions or comments. My character's names are Angel Beats and Aroz.
    This auction (every item in this house) will end December 28th.

    You could use a mailbox. Anyone can put something in a mailbox and only the owner can retrieve the item if you set the access to owner. Then anything dropped in also tags the players name.

    Yea, but then people won't be able to see who bid what. Won't know the top bid. Might have to redo this with a bulletin board.
