After last couple of fests and reading current comments in threads I would like your thoughts on this. Just a free for all silent auction, no start, no reserve, no buyout. If someone wants to submit a item they will be prepared to part with it. Lets face it, if the item is silent auction worthy the prices have no problem being driven up anyways. Everything else would remain the same, there still would be a end time with the ten minute rule ect. That doesnt mean I want low end items either, I will not except them. I still want it to be the same quality of rares. Also think about maybe letting the seller put a buyout on a item only. Just a thought. Also I will be willing to do a a rares fest auction if it falls on my weekend off work lol, I have used up to many vacation days in the past running auction houses. Lets try and keep this constructive as well. Even if the majority agrees to this it will still fall on whomever is hosting the fest to give the green light on it.
