Personal Description : Say what you mean.
Diamonds Diamonds : 201

       

Here is your chance to help decide on ways to run the auction house. I need your votes on the poll for how they should setup. The choices are 1 hour live auctions which would be most likely on friday and would auction all the items at once, an auction that lasts all week long with each combined into one area, or separate auctions for each fashion like we have had now. If you have other ideas on how it should be setup please leave a comment!!

Update 09.06.2013
Hey everyone the first live auction starts in just a few hours so be there at 6pm ext!

Right now if you look on the auction house I have a live conference setup which goes on all the time and Ill broadcast on it on fridays. It will be a live auction lasting 1 hour(or less depending how fast they auction) This is a test to see how everyone likes the new setup with live auctions, it may not be permanent.
What this feature offers:
-A place to chat and bid
-Interactive slides will be updated as items are sold
-Previews of future items that will be auctioning

Previews for the first auction will be posted within this next week.
So the first test auction will be Friday, September 6th at 6pm est. so don't be late!

For an hour? People live in different timezones. Not everyone lives in America.

Yes, it is just a trial and there may be other times that they are up as well. Depending on how it goes I'm going to decide whether it works or not and then make changes as needed. It is just something different to try since there were complaints about it being drug out for too long otherwise.

But "Auction all week in separate slots" got the most votes.

That's what we have had before and trying different ways will be a better way to decide which the members prefer.

I have to agree with Glam on this one. I'm pretty sure that the majority of people who'll be able to attend will be people living in central/eastern America. Even here on the West coast 6pm est is 3pm here, which is literally right after school so I doubt I'd even be able to make it.
Boop just my opinion, i'd think it'd be better just to shorten the time the auctions are up from 1 week to like 3ish days. Idk, that'd probably require more work tho

I think this idea is good, just maybe have it running all day on friday that way more people can get their bids in.

But 6 pm over in America could be Midnight or School time in other countries it would be a bit hard for everyone to get their bids in.

Yes, it is just a test and i may have it at different times if the live option does well. For example there may be some at like 10am, 6pm, and 11pm or something. It is still being decided here and we need to try it first and see how it works out. I'm trying to find a way to make it not so much work such as changing stuff every few days, but then also giving members a chance to bid(without making it too long).

The fact that its being tested doesn't make it fair...

I mean it'll be like midnight for me.

Some members are still on late at night and this is up to the members to decide how it works. We are trying it and like I said it could be at different times if it works out okay. You don't have to keep stating your point against it, I already know you don't like it. This is just something we are trying and ALL the members will help decide on. You won't know if you like it till you try it anyways so just wait and we will be trying to find the different ways that work best.

Last post: But the members didn't decide, the poll proves that. It's not that I "don't like" the idea, I'm just pointing out what is potentially wrong with it.

Sorry if this is coming across as harsh, I'm just saying. ._.
