    SILENT AUCTION
    Time/Date:End Time is 11:50 Estrn,10:50 central,8:50 pacific on saterday April 10th
    Items will be accepted starting April 2nd
    Any item bid on after 11:50 PM Saturday will extend auction 10 minutes. Item will close out after it hasn't received a bid for ten consecutive minutes. This will eliminate people losing a item in the last seconds and will also provide time for everyone to post contact info, be it icq or Statics name. If you win a item and we cant get in touch with you before 9pm Sunday, we will ask the next highest bidder if they want the item for there high bid.
    Also if a item is listed with no buyout and it receives a bid we will not be able to add a buyout from that point on, so make sure you think about whether or not you want a buyout before you hand us a item. Also if a item is listed and someone has met the reserve we will not be able to remove item if seller requests. So basically the rules are gonna be a little tougher on the seller,s this time around. Once all bidding ends on all the items we will be making house private. Please be patient after that point and we will do our best to get in touch with everyone as quickly as possible.
    Remember to only give items to Demon Slayer at icq# 102388892, Sundina at icq# 95509325 or lineman at 459-176-283. If you have suggestions or any questions please icq one of us thxs.

    Count me in.

    I believe it was commented on before but if not at the silent auction if someone wants to bid on an item they should have to provide contact information as well to help combat against fake bids.

    Why book travel plans when you can hide in one of his big 'ole suitcases!

    As I said in a different thread:

    If you're not placing a vendor to sell items but you're bringing a lot of gold over. You're more than welcome to place a free vendor at my house, just to hold all of your gold. I'll place them soon for people and allow them to stay up at least a week after rares fest ends (give you time to get things sorted for the move back).

    pm me if anyone else needs a spot!


    p.s. I'm on a private island, so no one will bother you or your vendor.

    What a great idea and service to our Visitors!

    I can give out some free vendors in Zento to hold your gold and/or sell a few trinkets. I will also let them to stay up at least a week after the Rares Fest ends (give you time to get things sorted for the move back).

    PM me if anyone needs a spot!

    You kidding? It showed it perfectly. I found it immediately just from looking at the pic once. Seems some merchants need a better grasp on the lands they'll be traveling. :p
