TOPIC: 2021 Tyler-style Supercondensed Lightning - CLOSED

2021 Tyler-style Supercondensed Lightning - CLOSED 3 months 2 weeks ago #1

So, I haven't seen this done and was curious how it might turn out. It seems the Super-condensed are doing better overall, but I wanted to see what would happen if I threw in the random URs and the chance at a Golden ticket into the mix.

I don't mind the work, and it may turn out that people might be able to grab things they wouldn't otherwise -- either because the cost per item is driven down, or because they didn't have the opportunity otherwise.

It's my first go at this, but I'm taking it very seriously. Be nice =)


Auction Rules

In order for the auction to be successful, the grand total of all bids must meet or exceed $8,000 (since, at 'best' I'll get a lucky random UR, but likely nothing -- and that's fine!). If the auction fails to meet the minimum, I may choose to go forward or call the whole thing off.

How bidding works:

◦ Bids should be sent to me via PM
◦ The winning bid is the lesser of the 2nd highest bid + the bid increment and the highest bid.
◦ You must bid at least the current bid + the bid increment.
◦ Bid increment on items less than $10: $0.25
◦ Bid increment on items greater than or equal to $10 and less than $50: $1
◦ Bid increment on items greater than or equal to $50: $5

Once your bid is received I will send you a PM confirming it and your fun and fancy 'nomme de auction'. I will regularly update the auction with currently winning bids, as work and life allows.

This auction rewards early bidding. If multiple bidders bid the same amount, the earliest bids win. Because the winning bid is set by the second-highest bidder, you can enter your top bid initially and never overpay.

Bidding ends on either ends at completion or Sunday, January 3rd, 2021 at ~1AM EST, however:

◦ If there are technical difficulties with TD forums (or elsewhere) within 1 hour of the end auction time all open items will be extended 24 hours, open to all bidders.
◦ If a new highest bid is placed on an item within 1 hour of the auction close, the bidding on those item(s) will be extended 24 hours, open to all bidders.

Payment is required through PayPal via friends and family. All winning bids will have 48 hours after close of auction to provide payment. Any unpaid item(s) after allowed time will defer their winning bid and the next highest bidder will be offered the item at their maximum bid price of the item(s).

Shipping (domestic):

◦ $5 for 10 or fewer tokens
◦ $8 for 11 to 150 tokens
◦ $16 for over 150 tokens

International shipping will be actual cost.

Please reach out to me via PM with any questions or concerns.

Feel free to bid on any number of items for which there are multiples available, your bid will always apply to the cheapest items.


Current Total: $7,980 of $8,000.00 (99.75%)

Ending no later than Sunday, January 3rd, 2021 at 12:59 AM EST

Congratulations to other auctions funding!

Still tons of practically free opportunities here, really looking like this might be a way to get under-priced goods compared to other auctions!

Bids are current!

We're amazingly at 85% after just a couple days, which means that hitting by the deadline of Nov 30 is actually within reach.

We've still got items without bids and some great deals on trade goods.

Look forward to your bids and good luck!

Morning!

Unfortunately had a bid retraction last night due to confusion, but some other bids came in that mostly covered it.

To clarify:

$0 - $9.75 - Bids go by $0.25; once we hit $10, bids go by $1 until $50, at which point they increase to $5. Example:

Jumanji bids 9.50 on an item. Robin Williams could beat Jumanji by bidding 9.75. Jumanji could come over the top of Robin by bidding 10, but *not* 10.25, as the increment has hit $1.

They continue to top each other until Robin sits at $49 for the item, and Jumanji correctly bids $55 to beat Robin, as his bid could have been $50 or any increment of 5 over that.

Apologies to any confusion or any differences to other auction formats -- this is how increments make sense to me and how they will operate [barring the early mistake or two].

Thank you for understanding!
