The Anime Alley Fifth Anniversary Silent Auction

Postby d.yaro » Thu Oct 17, 2013 2:17 pm

On October 10th, 2013 The Anime Alley passed the fifth anniversary of its founding. To mark this event, we are holding a silent auction to give away a number of prizes to say "Thank you!!!" for your past support and participation in the forum. Here are the details:

Prizes:
2 lots - Grab bags featuring Gundam S Destiny Voice I-doll figures (Meer Campbell and Meyrin Hawke) and candies
2 lots - Grab bags featuring iTunes Japan (¥1500 cards) and candies
3 lots - Grab bags featuring Gashapon figures (Jo-Jo's Bizarre Adventure and Ultraman) and candies

Image

How it will work:
- All members get 100 credits to use in the silent auction.
- Every day, 5 extra credits can be earned by posting in the "Thread of the Day" announced in the this thread. The selected thread will be checked at midnight (or thereabouts ;) ) Japan Standard Time and a new thread will be selected then.
- The auction will run from October 20th to November 4th, 2013. It will open and close at midnight Japan Standard Time on those days.
- Credits can be applied in any amounts.
- Bids can be placed by sending a PM to the account "Auctioneer".
- Ties will go to the first bidder.
- The members who place winning bids on a lot will be notified by PM. Names and addresses will be required in return as delivery of prizes will be via mail.

Once more... "Thank you!"...and have fun!

^ Not quite. The prizes will be awarded to the highest bidder once the bidding has closed. There is no "prize of the day".

Are members permitted to establish a miniature securities market for trading auction credits?

Just thought I would mention that it's not really a "silent" auction if you're posting the bids and who is bidding.

:shock:
