    Just want to say thanks to Blend, Shushu and rest of his Fest Team for a really incredible job they did at the fest. I know it ranks one of the best that I have been to. As much as I thought running one of the auction houses was allot of work I know it was nothing compared to the work Blend put in. I think everyone who attended should say a thanks in this post to Blend for organizing and putting months of work into one great event.

    I was initially skeptical of an asian shard rares festival, but I felt it was a great success, and we shouldn't wait too long to do it again. Many thanks!

    I for one was always a fan of an Asian Rares Fest. I was very glad when in the end it did happen and it was nothing less than what I imagined it would be.

    Many thanks to Blend and all the Team for making this work smoothly and creating a perfect environment. Auctioneers were at the top of their game.
    Truly one of the best I've been to.

    *bows*


    Oh! And many thanks to the EMs who were very fun and involved. New Year was a thrill, and that bank near Fest site was the best idea ever. :)

    one of the best festivals so far..and deffinate the most freindly!!!

    just one downer ...but its been the same last few festivals....that needs sorting/improving and i think we all know what iam talking about....the silent auction show case....no idea what the answer is...and i do know that a lot of work as gone into the auction houses...its not a slate...its a simple needs adjusting a little post

    maybe 2 auction houses

    main house... were the auction items have no reserves - just a start price or better still even 1 gold start prices...like a proper auction...real fun auction house were everyone can get involved.

    2nd house...the usual 100m start 250m reserve 400m buyout stuff:sad3:

    Most items actually did sell, but we can dwell into this near next fest with whoever is running next silent auction if there even is one. But there is always room for improvement. Each AH I have participated in I have learned allot. Right now this is about thanking Blend for the incredible amount of work he did at this fest. I honestly believe he could be a event coordinator in real life =),

    Yep, great job Sakura Festival team. :thumbup:

    I would further like to elaborate that I am sure most of you have felt the positive influence of getting the "Asian exposure", i.e. getting the Asian UO players interested rare collecting. Thus, I feel that it would be wise to include Blend and ShuShu on all future Festival planning committees so they can help advertise to the Asian population and guide them there.

    Thank you very much Blend and Shushu not only for the Fest but for helping a guy from LS that was scammed. They made the scammer to return a dreadmare.

    Oh and thanks to XIII for all the translating he did and for my new vendor on LS: Goku

    Many thanks to Blend, Shushu and the rest of the Sakura rares fest team!

    I am in agreement that this was one of the best rares fests ever. Everything seemed well organized and the ambiance was pleasant.

    Good job, Sakura!
