Greetings Ladies and Gentleman, The time has come once again for Toad Town to host our 3rd Rare's Festival. As your Live Auction Host, I Welcome everyone to come attend the Rare's Festival on June 20th - June 22, and enjoy the many activities we have to offer. How to Submit to the Rare's Festival Live Auction: Please put your item(s) in a single bag along with a book. List the Item in the book with its starting/reserve price. In the title of the book, please put your characters name. In the 'by' section, please put a prominent way to contact you. ie: ICQ, Stratics, or even a code. You can either submit the item(s) to me personally or drop them off in my mailbox on my porch. NOTE (1): If you drop the submission off in my mailbox, please specify that it is for the rares festival. I host Auctions weekly and it may go into the weekly live auction unless stated otherwise. NOTE (2): DO NOT hand over any item to anyone without verifying if it is me. There are a few people in our UO world that will try to steal/scam others. Unfortunately, it does happen and there isn't anything we as players can do. Claiming Your Winnings: If you have submitted item(s) to the Rare's Festival Live Auction, please stay afterward to claim your winnings, or at least be within the vicinity of the Auction House. Being a staff member, we are always busy doing tasks behind the scenes and I may not be available later to retrieve your gold for you. I will notify you via Stratics or ICQ if you need to retrieve your gold and or items. NOTE (1): I don't have ICQ, but there a few members of Toad Town that do. If you prefer notification through ICQ, I will have a trustee ICQ you in regards to the auction. However, if you have stratics, I can contact you easily through stratics. NOTE (2): I will NOT be charging a commission for the Rare's Festival Live Auction. What the item sells for is what you will claim at the conclusion of the Auction. Rules & 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 environment 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 someone's 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 Town Auction House NOTE (1): 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. NOTE (2): To avoid future miscommunication. Please read this book before submitting to the auction. Recently, a player submitted items to my weekly auction without getting to know the auction house, which caused a huge dramatic argument that could have been easily avoided. Here is a small outline of what to expect with the Rare's Festival Live Auction: There is an Item Limit of 75 Items Submissions are OPEN as of the creation of this thread Deadline to Submit is Wednesday, the 18th of June. (NO EXCEPTIONS) ONLY submit items that are rare (Non-Spawning items) Items under the value of 5M must be submitted within a packaged lot. If you submit something that isn't considered rare or it doesn't meet the terms of the submission, then the item will be voided and returned to its rightful owner. Be sure to put the correct information within the book when submitting. If it has some information missing, I will try to notify you. If I hear nothing from you, the item will be voided and returned. If I missed something or if anyone has any questions, please PM me. Thanks and see you all at the 2014 Atlantic Rare's Festival at Toad Town!!
