All new auction style ads are required to use these updated guidelines. No changes are to be made.
We hope this will help avoid any uncertainty about which bids are valid or invalid.

Please copy and paste these 10 rules into your ad.

  1. STARTING BID: [ $ add amount here ]
  2. Bids must be placed using numbers (no images), in whole dollars, and in minimum increments of [ $ add amount here ]
  3. NO RESERVE. The Starting Bid of this auction will be treated as the Reserve Price.
  4. All bids are to be placed openly in this thread. No bids via PM/Conversation.
  5. No bid edits or bid retractions permitted. (note: ALL edits are logged instantly)
  6. Auction will use the '5 minutes after last closing bid rule'. Highest bid at [ Time, Time Zone, Day, Date ] will win unless there is a bid within 5 minutes of closing time - then the closing time will be within 5 minutes after the latest bid was posted. A bid at the close time is NOT a valid bid. Since seconds are not displayed on post timestamps, these examples will be used as a reference.
  7. I reserve the right to: 1) cancel the auction if no bids have been made; 2) edit the listing to correct errors or clarify rules as needed.
  8. PCF (its Owner, Admins, and Moderators) are in no way responsible for any actions in this auction.
  9. Shipping Terms: [ add terms here ]
  10. Payment Terms: [ add terms here ]

Since seconds are not displayed on post timestamps, the following examples will be used as a reference.
  1. If the close time is 3:00pm, any bid at 2:56pm up to and including 2:59pm is valid and extends the auction for another 5 minutes.
  2. If the close time is 3:00pm, a bid at 2:55pm does not extend the auction.
  3. If a bid is placed at 2:56pm, the auction now closes at 3:01pm. A bid at 3:01pm is not a valid bid.
  4. If the close time is 3:05pm, and a bid is placed at 3:04pm, the auction now closes at 3:09pm.
