:shock:
That's what I too thought originally. But when I checked online I came across a definition which said that a silent auction is so called because there is no auctioneer calling for and announcing high bids. But the bids and bidders are public knowledge. I've participated in two types of silent auctions: 1) one went around and wrote one's bid on a sheet of paper laid in front of the item up for auction, 2) one went around and placed credit coupons in a ballot box in front of the item. I guess this one is a bit of a hybrid.

That was the idea. I think the event reminded a few people of the forum. Hasn't resulted in an increase in posts though. I'm thinking of doing something after New Years to try and build up some more interest..
