What are Auction Points? (Comic Book Forums)

ComicBookRealm.com's new design is here!

If you can't tell, the entire site has had a visual makeover! It is a large site and as such there might be a thing or two out of whack. If you notice any issues, please let us know about them here.

  • On the CBR home page, there's a block called "2008 Auction Points". What are Auction Points, many people ask?

    When you contribute information (or money, money's a nice contribution!), you earn points to build up Free Days, use the pile export feature, and participate in the annual auction. Since 2006, Dough Boy has been collecting valuable books, toys and other must-haves for members to fight, er, compete over in an auction held in early September.

    At the end of the auction, high bidder wins, as you'd expect, and they lose those points for the next year's auction. All members get to keep unused points for the following year's auction. How great is that?

  • Thanks for the information. I have a follow up question...

    Q: If I spend my auction points will I loose free days? Or are they earned and impossible to "spend"?

    Very Happy

  • Nope. Free Days and auction points are separate awards for doing the same work! Kind of like getting vacation pay and wage if you work for a union.
