a personal folder for you and one submitted
to the board each week. You don't have to
submit an item to both auctions :

a minimum bid of 200 points. All further
bids to begin at 300 points, to ensure that
all designers earn at least 200 points for
their efforts. After that point, the bidding
will continue in increments of 100 points
with no maximum cap. As long as you have
the points to cover your bid, you can bid
as much as you like. If you are unsure how
many points you have, please refer to the
Point Bank thread and check your points
3. POINTS - ** You MUST have the points
in the bank on the most current BANK BALANCE
SHEET. If You do Not have the points, Your
bid will be VOIDED! If You have won MORE
then one avatar and the total of all of
them is MORE then what you currently have
in the bank You will lose ALL the avatars.**
, and they will be awarded to the next person

or post it will be voided.**

BID will be used as Your final bid.**
6. Board/Abstract auctions will generally
run for a period of one week and the exact
ending time and date will be posted each
week. The person with the highest bid at
the end of the auction wins the avatar.
7. At the end of the auction, the board/abstract
auction threads will be locked and the names
of the winners will be posted in a separate
thread on the General Board/Abstract auction
board. If you won an avi, you should immediately
send a private message to the Designer of
the avi you won stating the exact name you
would like on the avatar. The Designer is
to then personalize the av for you and post
it on the board entitled "Pick Up Area"
under the "Board Auction Pickup"
thread. The threads for the previous week's
auctions will be moved to the "Archived"
thread under the "Board Auctions/Sales"
board and kept there for a period of five
days before deleted. (If you don't receive
your avi in a timely manner, please let
us know so that your points can be refunded).
Any designer who does not fulfill their
commitments will be banned from future board
auctions for a period of 4 weeks.
**Note** The winning bids will be accepted
with a time stamp prior to the closing time.
A bid entered after the closing time will
not count as a winning bid. (so if you live
in the EST area anything time stamped after
4:00:00 will NOT count.)
**Note** anyone selling an avi on here,
then not delivering, which results in a
refund will be banned from submitting an
ava into the board auction for 1 month.
8. Designers are not responsible for hosting
avatars for an excessive length of time.
This is the responsibility of the Buyer.
9. All non-bid posts or posts of a negative
nature will be removed.
The 2 week rule: From now on, anyone submitting
avas for auctions etc, there is a 2 week
deadline for delivery. If you're unable
to make this deadline then please arrange
between yourself and the person winning
the ava when it will be delivered.
If the person who won the ava hasn't heard
back from the person within two weeks, and
they feel worried about it, please post
the admin board and let us know, and a refund
will be processed.
Please please contact the designer beforehand
and give them time to respond. It may be
that they are snowed under r/t.
However, if you're the designer, and will
be late in delivering, please let us know
too, so that we can avoid refunds as much
