Default New trading board child board- Auction!

Now, by auction I do not mean selling, as that has been disccused.

Let me type an example:

I have 10 uber painted hormagaunts. I want gaunts.

User1: 12 termagaunts!
user2: 13 termagaunts!

Like that. It would all be in good measure though, and any person can take back their post, if they have second thoughts or their conditions change.

This could also be a way of selling painted minis, if your only in the hobby for painting, or even for converting!

Just a thought

uhmmm ... i dont think auctions are needed ... Offers from other players who are interested will be present and the trader will decide the best deal. This auction idea sounds cool but ineffective IMO.

True, Auctions can get messy, with bidding wars you end up regretting. I think that the current system is fine.

Besides, I could see people getting irritated if they keep winning things only to have the auctioneers snatch them back.

The only way I could see auctions panning out here is:
A) They were pro painted/converted minis
B) They were traded for money

And unfortunatally, we don't allow pro painters to make a monetary profit off our site, although they may trade them for minis.

But the bottom line is there are sites out there with the correct setup to handle auctions.

I don't think that the trading board is active enough to merit it's own child board, I'm sure you could do it in the trading forum.

Being a rather important figure in the board in question, I believe that I should say something at least :P

So far FT has pretty much hit the nail on the head, and it would be far too challenging to do much otherwise without there creating some troubles.
