    Well we are going to try out something new! We have decided to add a new forum for sponsors to conduct auctions in thread format! It will be something fun and hopefully good for their business and your wallet. It could go either way at times! HA!

    The rules of the auction forum will be added, edited as we progress and see how things work out.

    1. Don't bid if you don't intend on buying. Non paying bidders will removed from the auction forum and will not be allowed to bid or even see the auctions. Hate to be so hard about this but it kinda makes auctions pointless if people don't pay.

    2. Highest bid post before auction ending time is the winner.

    3. All other forum rules apply.

    4. Sponsors will use the following auction format:

    Coral Name (description) -
    Coral Photo (must be WYSIWYG) -
    Bid Increments -
    Starting Bid -
    End Time/Day -
    Shipping Rate/Local Pickup -
    Method of Payment -
    DOA Guarantee -

    That's all for now! There will be more to add later but for now enjoy!

    It's a good idea. I know there has been a few the last couple of weeks. Let's see how many jump on board.

    I think it sounds good, i think it would be more fun if there was a limit to how much of an increase you can do too. Some of the other auctions went from 2 dollars to 100 in one post lol

    Maybe it's just me who would like that :)

    I like this.
    We have something similar in Houston and it cleaned my frag tanks out from my unwanted frags.
    I just got back from my week long fishing trip but tomorrow I'll see what I can throw on here.

    You're 100% right, I couldn't believe it anyway that it was for everyone, that takes a tremendous amount of work for the mods and they do already a awesome job so far.

    Awesome idea!

    Another rule I would suggest having members not post questions in the auction thread but take it to pm

    That would be my guess so that every auction is its own thread, not one thread filled with multiple auctions.
