Form for auctions

Postby Morgaln » August 10th, 2010, 7:12:18 am

Here, we provide a handy form for you to use and fill out that will include all the necessary information for your auction. We are providing the template in code form for your convenience, so you only have to copy-paste it, as well as an explanation what information needs to be put at each item.

This form is of course completely optional. You can still create your auctions whatever way you choose, as long as you include all the necessary information. However, should you be new to auctioning, it is advised to use this template until you are comfortable you can handle it on your own.



Description: Species, generation, gender, named or not, frozen or not, breedings left for Coal and Tinsel Wyrms, is it part of a lineage

Post a clickable link to the creature you auction here

Starting bid: Put the amount the auction should start at here, must be included
Minimum Increase: The amount each bid has to be higher than the previous bid; must be included
Maximum Increase: No bid may be higher than the previous bid plus this amount; is not required
Autobuy: An amount of gold or creature(s) that will automatically win the auction if offered; is not required
Creatures accepted: Any creatures you are willing to accept in bids and what they are worth; may be set to none if you don't want any creatures offered.

Ending Time: The time the auction ends; must include day, hour, minute and the timezone that information is given in.

Any additional information you want to give goes here



Code: Select all

Thank you, this should help newbies and help me keep my auction looking neat.
At least now nobody has an excuse to not have all the required stuff!

lmao I thought that too.. I saw the thread and was all "Has... that always been there?"

Great idea though.. so many people don't read the rules and then screw up their auctions by leaving something important out (like end dates).
