March Familiar Auctions - (status: finished)

This thread offers a familiar auction on each of Midnight, Cobalt, Viridian, Sage and Hunter oceans. This month, the familiar auctions will be for pieces of eight, and it will be a silent auction via PM.

The rules are straightforward.

1. Read this post thoroughly before bidding.

2. To bid, send a PM to account MarchAuction
Note that PMs sent to Apollo, or any other account, will be deleted without response.

3. The subject of the PM must follow the format below.
Ocean / Pirate name / Bid amount in PoE
For example, if Hera was bidding 2,300,000 on Cobalt, the subject of the PM would be "Cobalt / Hera / 2,300,000"
PMs that do not follow this subject format will be ignored without response.

4. Include the following information in the body of the PM.
Pirate name:
Ocean:
Bid amount:
Location of the poe:
Familiar choice (species and color(s)):
Whether the money is already in the specified location:

Please use a secure location if you're leaving a large sum of money. The money can be held by your named pirate if you wish. An alt may hold the money, but this alt must be on the same account as the named pirate, not on a different account.

The available species are monkey, parrot and octopus. You may choose any available color other than all-white or all-black. The new colors (mint, lavender, rose) are only available for parrots.
Follow the links from the familiar page on the wiki to see other available colors.
For parrot colors, please give the head color first, followed by the body color.

5. Ensure that you are available within 24 hours of the auction deadline, as winners will need to provide the poe within that time after the auction. If you are unsure of your availability, put the money in the nominated location earlier.

Other notes

The auction deadline will be 12 noon PDT on Monday 31st March 2008.

You may enter the auction once on each eligible ocean. However, if you wish to bid on multiple oceans, please submit separate messages for each bid so that your PM subject is valid.

After the deadline, the highest bid on each ocean will be identified. A PM will be sent to the winning bidder on each ocean. If the money is already present at the nominated location, the familiar will be traded immediately. If the money is not present, the winner will have 24 hours to reply to the PM and get the money in place. If the winner has not put the money in the nominated location within 24 hours of the deadline, the second highest bidder will be contacted instead.

After the auction, the winning bidders, and their winning bids, will be posted in this thread, along with the familiar they chose.

To allow for errors in the PM, or a substantial increase in a bid, you may send TWO PMs for each auction. Any more than two will be considered spamming, and you will be disqualified.

Bids are binding. Do not bid if you are not willing or able to pay. Bid only when you have the money available.

Bids must be at least 500,000 pieces of eight.

If you have any questions, please ask in this thread, and I will update this post if necessary. MarchAuction will not respond to questions, so don't try! :)

A final reminder that bids are only valid if they are sent by PM to MarchAuction, follow the correct subject line format and contain all required information.

Thank you, and happy bidding!

Re: March Familiar Auctions - deadline noon 31st March 2008

Can we put the poes in a shack in a particular island or in a locked ship? or does it only have to be on hand in the main or alts?

Aye, it can be in any secure location, or it can be on your pirate or an alt on the same account.

Yes, you can, but please make sure that you say so in your PM as I will have to handle it slightly differently.

(minus what they say you can't have: all black and all white. Note the yppedia has NOT been updated with images of the new colors for parrots.)

Ahoy! All winning bidders have been PMed and their familiars delivered.

There were a few bids which did not follow the required subject line (and these were ignored), but most were correct, so thank you everybody!

As I don't remember processing a bid from you, the most likely thing is that you did not follow the requirements for the PM subject line. In this situation, the PM would be ignored.

but there is this line:

maybe your bid was invalid for some other reason. Good luck and try to be more careful in the next auction?
