[SOLD] Inn on Prolix Purlieu: Innie Meanie Minie Moe

Check out this beautiful piece of extremely permanent real estate on the luxurious isle of Prolix Purlieu. It can be yours for the taking!


Bidding starts at 10,000,000
Minimum Bid Increment: 100,000
All bids should have 5 zeros at the end - no piddle, please.

This auction will stand fully open until 12pm game time, January 22nd, 2012, at which time the minimum bid increment will increase by 100k each bid until a bid stands unchallenged for 36 hours.

Changed: If the winner fails to follow through on their purchase within 36 hours from the unchallenged winning bid being accepted, the auction will resume from prior bidder and the prior bid amount.

Added to rules: I reserve the right to demand proof of bid amount prior to auction closing; if proof can not be provided within 16 hours of request, bid will be disregarded and that bidder will be prevented from bidding again. During those 16 hours, further bids by the poster in question may be ignored until I've posted validity.

All requests for proof by others should be PM'd to me, and bidders should treat all bids as real unless I've posted a public request for verification.

Bids only in this thread, please. Comments should go in Parley . Enjoy!

Added: * In the event the oceans merge and this specific thread is locked before the auction finishes, the thread will be recreated in the new Meridian Bazaar and resume from the previous bid amount, rules intact. If it's in the timed portion of the auction, game time down will be added to the count.

Re: [AUCTION] Inn on Prolix Purlieu: Innie Meanie Minie Moe

If the winning bid isn't honored, then the auction should start up again from the second-highest bid, rather than the second-highest bid being given a refusal.

Re: [AUCTION] Inn on Prolix Purlieu: Innie Meanie Minie Moe

Due to his Alts stupidity, and manipulation of the auction I vote all his bids are disregarded in this thread.

* We shall disregard all bids from "Not Jute"
* Jutecloth is being asked to present proof of bid. PM me to arrange a time to meet online.

I believe he was just pointing out the flaw in the auction rules otherwise he would not have made it so obvious.

Got it. Will consider changing the auction to continuing after a failed winning bid, but will change the time demand for delivery from 1 week to 36 hours, so people will hold on to their last bids. I'll decide within the next 16 hours and post an update.

Until then, I will assume Jutecloth's bid is invalid as a point-maker and bidding may resume from:

17.5 million from Catscanner

* Jutecloth is not barred, but the proof of bid request is still up.

I'll be on tomorrow evening to provide proof. It is rather useless though, as I won't be going much higher.

Re: [AUCTION] Inn on Prolix Purlieu: Innie Meanie Minie Moe

Requests for verification of bidders should be PM'd to me; let's keep the auction thread clean. If killinfisher exceeds the amount he's declared to me, I'll post a verification. Please note the change of ending conditions that have been updated in the OP.

Re: [AUCTION] Inn on Prolix Purlieu: Innie Meanie Minie Moe

Quick clarification:

In the event the oceans merge and this specific thread is locked before the auction finishes, the thread will be recreated in the new Meridian Bazaar and resume from the previous bid amount, rules intact. If it's in the timed portion of the auction, game time down will be added to the count.

No, it's open until Jan 22nd, to give people time to raise funds for it. Then the timer ticks on bids.

Re: [AUCTION] Inn on Prolix Purlieu: Innie Meanie Minie Moe

If the forums are down on the 22nd or during anytime the clock is ticking on a bid, the 36 hour ticker will be delayed until they're back up. No PM bids, please.
