    I agree. But I strongly feel that it should be limited to Angs, and Angs only. I really don't think that is unreasonable.

    GAWD, I love your consistancy, Mr B! Admirable quality and you have it in spades.

    My leonis is still dead, I checked.

    I would think you could just start your own thread as an auction thread with the specifics...when it ends etc. Include photos of course and a starting/opening bid. Then send some dough to the forum after it closes. I tend to follow the keep it simple solution.

    Posey, I don't quite understand you. You mention on another thread that 15% to ebay is outrageously high to pay for reaching millions of potential buyer and selling an item, there seems to be an auction site available on another forum where you post but you haven't availed yourself of that, you are free to sell things on this site by posting what you have, but you want Jon and Forrest to spend their (unpaid) time to set up an auction site so you can save a few bucks? Give me a fucking break.

    I swear, if I ever see one of these plants, I will buy it and have it shipped to you, MJ. Just so you can't say that anymore...LOL!

    I was thinking she was warming up the chipper and googling Clark's address. I still think kilns are the better way to go though. I own 2.:evil:

    If you are willing to work with me on a trial basis (I might get fed up and close it down if it or users misbehave), I have reestablished a public auction script on my website.
    • You must register with a true name, address, and email, or I will delete you.
    • If you want pictures, they must already be web-accessible (i.e., I cannot host them).
    • If you offer something, you must sell it to the high bidder upon receipt of payment.
    • If you win, you must pay for it.
    • ALL transactions are between the seller and the buyer; I am not part of this at all, (unless I'm one of the two).
    • I have - but will try to avoid using - complete tyrannical control. Offer something inappropriate or act poorly, and I will delete.

    If an OI member uses Ray's auction tool, please feel free to post a link to the auction in the for sale or trade section.
