1) All Canreef members, Staff, and Sponsors may participate in the Canreef Auctions. Non-sponsor vendors and members with commercial interest may not participate as sellers, but are welcome to participate as buyers.

2) All auctions must have at least one WYSIWYG photo. Photos of mother colonies for frag auctions are encouraged.

3) The seller decides how long his/her auction runs for to a maximum of 7 days. Please post end date and time in your auction as well as your time zone.

4) The seller chooses a bid increment of $1, $2, $5, or $10.

5) The seller may bump the thread up once per day.

6) When two members make an identical "winning" bid on the same minute, the auction will remain open for these two bidders only for a bidding war - until a winning bid is achieved. At this time, if a bidder fails to post a bid increase within 15 minutes, that bidder is considered resigned from the auction.

7) Shipping costs are the responsibility of the buyer unless otherwise stated.

8) Buyers that back out of a winning bid, if reported to Canreef Staff, will no longer be allowed to participate as a buyer or seller in the Canreef Auctions.

9) Canreef assumes no responsibility or guarantees for the outcome of the auctions or the delivery of the items. These actions are performed and arranged by the buyer and seller just as typical classified sales are undertaken. If you do not feel comfortable dealing with the auction host, do not bid.

I don't think I'll have anything up for auction right away. I made some Space Invaders Pectinia frags specifically to kick off this auction thread, but my tank had a rough go about 10 days ago, and it's still recovering. :(

Nice, RyanErickson is first, thanks Ryan! :thumb:

Yup, it was (wrongly) setup to only show the last day. Go to bottom and change the settings to show last 2 weeks or whatever you like. Still waiting for it to get fixed.

UPDATE ON GUIDELINE #6


6) When two members make an identical "winning" bid on the same minute, the auction will remain open for these two bidders only for a bidding war - until a winning bid is achieved. At this time, if a bidder fails to post a bid increase within 15 minutes, that bidder is considered resigned from the auction.
