    FYI
    How your post looks to me because of font color choices.

    My thoughts:

    1. There will be items that many will over bid.
    2. There will be items that the owners think so highly of them that no one will bid.
    3. There will be items that will receive low bids due to too many items out now and have since lost interests.
    4. There will be lots of duped items up for sale that people either don't care or don't know or don't remember they were duped.
    5. I foresee 75 billion + GP will have exchanged hands by the end of this festival.
    6. I foresee the games played during the festival will be fun and attended by many.

    Thanks hon, it was just a reminder to folks who like to change their font that not everyone uses the default. I use the UO Classic theme.

    As far as the Rares fest.
    Everything I want will be overpriced. Everything I want to sell I will end up selling too cheaply.
    LOL

    I bet dupers are working flat out ready to make some cash with their "vendorable dupes".

    My thought is that I'll be lucky if I can afford even one new rare. :D
