    GameOgre may start having forum point auctions for game cards and possibly games like we did with Terraria. If we did, where would you want to see the auctions? We could have a thread for each auction somewhere or we could have a live auction in chat.

    Forum thread. Chat would not reach as many people and then you (speaking about people who want to bet) have to deal with getting on at inconvenient times.

    Yes, chat would probably be more difficult due to different time zones. Hmm, we could look into an auction plug-in:).

    I think a thread would still be fine if there isn't a plugin. It's simple but anyone can reach it regardless of time zones. :)

    Threads would be the best unless you can find a cool plugin.

    Threads is best, but will there be something like a price for which you can immediatly buy it? Like they have in WoW auctions.

    Example:
    Terraria auction:
    - minimum bet = 1,000 points
    - raising by minimum of 200 points
    - immediate buy = 15,000 points

    Just an example, although this might be unfair for people with less points. But then there could be a rule that after three or five bets (cause then the betting gets exciting) the immediate buy price expires

    We may put the auctions in Ogres Hall unless somebody can think of a better place.
