The Forgiven's DAY EVENT

YOU HEARD IT RIGHT. The crew THE FORGIVEN will be making a day event on the 11th of February starting at 6 pm game time.

Lots of prizes to be won including karks, lim. pets, rare tables, wine chromas, male and female clothes other chromas and stuff.
These will be in the form of an auction which will be run during the event. (PS. There might be a fam in the auction if we have a big turnout,)

To enter this event you will just have to pay 5k, and this will let you join the poker tournament which will be run at the same time. The people in the last table will all win something nice maybe a sloop.

During this event there will also be the chance to challenge the crew members to team sfs and rumble, and if you manage to win, which i doubt :p, you will be given a reward.

During the event, random items will be given to the people in the crew's hall from time to time. so feel free to stay as long as you want to be able to win these items.

Hope to see you there. come win your prizes ^^. For invites, send tells to any Senior Officer or Captain Online.
This event is made and managed by the crew The Forgiven.


EDIT 1: arranged time

OOPS,, that's supposed to be 6 PM not 6 AM
Sorry about that... thanks to Amberash for noting the discrepancy.

Re: The Forgiven's DAY EVENT

Well, I must say, couldn't have been a better run auction.
From the auction holder going "What do I do now?" to accepting bids of 50 over 48k, to general chaos on the ship and no clear rules or specifications.

But, I try not to be all hateful, so I will give some tips that, in my eyes, will help a future event run smoothly.
1. Specify all bids must be in increments of 1000, and make sure they type 50k instead of 50, or it does not count, as they are two completely different numbers.
2. Make sure to keep all vessel chat to a minimum, bidding only or else a warning or /plank.
3. I'd say classify the boxes by value, say blue/black are worth under 50k, pink/black 50k-100k, and white/black 100k+, for example, to give an idea of how much to bid.
----------------------------------------
 
The people about there, had they been awake instead of asleep, at other times would have seen even stranger things. Some day, but not at this time, I shall make an announcement of something that I never once dreamed of.

Re: The Forgiven's DAY EVENT

I just want to THANK EVERYONE who came to our Auction/Event. A special thanks to Pilara and Fairbella and all the crew and friends who helped along the way, with working, donating the items, and to all the people who bid and won the prizes..

Congratulations to those who got fabulous prizes,, sorry to those who did not.

This was a learning auction for us as well, and we hope to have more, and in the future maybe have a slightly different format. Open to ideas, and suggestions. I know a lot of people had fun.

Thank you all again !!!

Hugs and love to all,
Lj

Re: The Forgiven's DAY EVENT

I appreciate the comments, yes, like I said, it was our first auction.

1. we contemplated the value option but then how does one make a profit on an auction if you know the value of the box?
2. my apologies for the chaos at the beginning, there were some last minute changes of venue to make it easier.
3. yes the vessel chat was excessive at times, and I know we cannot please everyone. Some people WERE planked.
4. Increments of 1k or more WERE mentioned, maybe it was missed by some.
5. 50 verses 50K .............well that was not an issue as it was mentioned 1K increments so we knew it was 50K if someone wrote 50.

Anyways, I heard more positive comments about the event, but like I said, the next one will have some changes .... for the better !!

Cheers,
Lj
