    I Welcome everyone to attend Toad Town's Auction house this Sunday at 5PM Eastern Standard Time. The Auction house is located on the Atlantic Shard outside the Luna north gate, then go east from there.​

    Lottery

    At every auction there will be a lottery for the public to play and bet their odds. The Lottery Item will be displayed next to the white book (in picture). Announcing the winning lottery number will always be at the end of every auction and will be chosen by a random number generator. To participate in the lottery, simply purchase a lottery ticket off of the lottery vendor. There will be only 40 lottery tickets available for purchase so first come first serve. The lottery vendor will be stocked thirty minutes prior to the auction. If you have the winning lottery ticket, you must hand it to me so i can verify the code. If the winning number is called and you have it but do not speak up, we will move on to the next number so be alert when it comes time for the lottery drawing.​

    How to make a Submission

    Please use the purple bag (displayed in the picture below) as an example of what a submission should look like. Please get a book and a bag (there is a vendor in the back with return runes, books, and bags) and put the item(s) in one single bag and then list the item and its starting price within the book.​


    NOTE (1): If you fail to list a start price for your item, I will try my best to contact you and get that resolved. If I cannot get in contact with you I will not auction off the item.​

    NOTE (2): If I am not around when your submission is completed, you can drop off your submission via my mailbox on the front steps. Everytime i come to my house, I check the mailbox and bulletin board.​

    NOTE (3): Once the auction is over, I will then distribute the winning gold to all who had submitted items. Please note that I am still in school during the week and that I may be difficult to get into contact with but I will try my best to contact all who have submitted items. It is advised to stay after the auction to recieve your payout so we can avoid complications during the week.​

    Auction List

    At every auction there will be a auction list that will be opened to the public. Normally, I have a item limit in my auction to about 45 items. I keep this limit because I don't want this to be a three or four hour auction. On occasion, the total items surpass that amount because at least one of the following:​

    1) Holiday - in the holiday mood I like to go over the limit to give everyone the equal fairness of submitting items and also so everyone could get that holiday special. Also, depending on the holiday, there will be mini gift bags laying around that will be released throughout the auction.​

    2) Item Submitting via mailbox - Sometimes the mailbox will have so many submits that it can pass the limit fairly fast. Although it may pass the item limit, I encourage as many to submit this way because I am not always on at the same time as others are.​

    NOTE: Only submit items to me and no one else. I am the only one that actually runs and operates the auction itself. Thats not to say I don't have friends help me because I do, but I am the only one with access to the item submits and gold. If you are worried that it is not me, you can ask me to step behind the counter via the telepad. I am the only one with access to get behind the counter.​

    Rules and Need-to-knows for the Toad Town Auction

    Please be sure to read the rules regarding the auction. With the cooperation from every individual, we can produce a better enviroment for everyone to enjoy. Even though I am fun and games most of the time, I do take these rules seriously. Since I am the only one running the auction, I am doing around 5 or more things at once WHILE trying to not mess up someones submitted item. Depending on the player and what they did, the punishment varies:​

    Temporary Ban - banned for that particular auction. This serves as a warning. If you do the same thing again it can result in permanent ban.​

    Permanent Ban - pretty self explanatory but basically you won't be allowed to participate in the Toad Town Auction or any event associated with the Toad Toad Town Auction House​

    NOTE: It is very hard to get a permanent banning but it is possible. I don't like to ban anyone because I want everyone to enjoy the game without drama but I will ban if it is needed. FYI: I keep a documented record of people who were banned and why, people needing banned and why, and people with warnings and why.​

    Will the packages be visible before hand or a more detailed list provided?

    While it looks like a lovely auction (no offense intended), I don't wish to attend only to find out nothing in the package is something I would be interested in or it doesn't contain items I am missing. Having a very busy offline life, I have to plan to attend a scheduled event, usually substituting time I would have been on earlier or later to make it happen. This is what prevents me many times from attending auctions (and spending gold). If there is something I want, I can make it happen... but to sit for an hour or two and to find out there is nothing in the packages I'd be interested in bidding on would be very frustrating.

    It may be too late to assemble detailed lists the day before, but if possible, I would like to know the following info. If it is too late, please consider doing so in future auctions as I think it will help those selling items a lot.

    #11/#12/#17 General lists of items, what type of double exceptional and if EQ, are all items full titled - If [E], any crafter names on items and what they are.

    #49 - Which EMs? I know someone else who collects these and I can pass along the info.

    #57 Would you please elaborate on what you mean by old Canvases?

    #28, By the way, boards can be dyed and they lose their special wood tag when they are. I carry multiple colors on my vendors (including invul blue) for 5k with not rare tags. They can be dyed with any dyes/tubs that can be used to dye any specialty wood items - including new clean-up dyes. I often see these colored boards on sale as rares in Luna - Also bolts, arrows and kindling. . It is often overlooked and many folks aren't aware they can be dyed. Barnacle boards I don't believe can be made anymore, but they aren't solid blue, but multi colored. If they are not rare, you may wish to explain that folks are bidding on a novelty so they don't think you were trying to pull one over on them.


    Thank you very much, Alex. I really am not trying to be a pain, especially about #28, but I know there are items I don't know the origin of either and folks who attend or staff may not in this case.

    Thanks for running these auctions Alexander, I didn't stick around long tonight. And sorry for the brief interruption during the auction everyone! ;)
    What did the 'The Wheel is Constantly Spinning as it Creates the Owners thread of life' go for, so I can know what to expect to pay the next time one comes up and I leave the auction early... *facepalm*

    Thanks Alexander for a lovely time. I think I may have to redesign my home to make a place for the new canvases.
