An Auction Page
 
How about an auction area to give everyone a fair chance of buying some of the items for sale. would be better than putting dibs on things and might even make more money for the seller and as putting a price on things is kinda hard it would take that part away too.

it could be used for both private sellers and traders. it wouldnt take up much room as when the item is sold the thread for that could be deleted.

2nd that

I don't know about his guys, could be an absolute nightmare to regulate.

Peter R32 18-03-2008 03:12 PM

Dont see why that would be more fair than who comes first got it.

what we do on another buy/sell forum is have a finish time say 19:00 18/03/2008

whoever has the highest bid at that time gets the item.

works fine on there

:iagree: Great idea! :D Its often difficult to value an item , espesh secondhand. Should maybe have a maximum period of a week?

I think this could be the fairest way for both buyers AND sellers and shouldn't need regulating.

just thought it would be easier than first come first served and takes away the dibs.

also makes it fairer cos not all of us are at the pc when things are put up for grabs so loads can miss out on that "most wanted" item

I could write a php style auction page similar to ebay if you like :)

Jaffa-sky 18-03-2008 04:49 PM

think its a good idea but would say some rules would have to be in place for example you bid to buy etc .

MARKPRIOR 18-03-2008 04:50 PM

yep leave the auctioning to ebay, theres probs some legalities involved anyway

Paul R 18-03-2008 04:59 PM

pah! your all a bunch of gayers!

Paul.

zig-zag 18-03-2008 05:37 PM

cant see how you would have problems with legalities any more than with sellin as we already do.

can even be in the same formats as the threads but just with an automatic closing time on the thread thus leaving whoever posted the highest bid to be the winner. and you would have to pay but why would you bid if you didnt want to pay

i think its a great idea as it'll allow people who aren't always online when things come up for dibs to have a chance to buy the item like "arferf**ksake" mentioned
