How exactly does the auction work. (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.

  • I scanned the forum and links but still didn't find the answer, sorry.

    1. Are the Auction items primarily for the benefit of CBR? (IE they get the $$ from auction)
    2. Are items solicited or donated for auction? How?

  • The auction is to motivate people to contribute to CBR. The items themselves are donated, mostly by Dough Boy, but some items are by others. The items can be high value, but I don't think that's a requirement. The auction is supposed to be a fun reward for helping CBR become a useful site for collectors.

    Does that answer your questions?

  • Yes, thank you.

    And if I wish to submit some items to benefit CBR? (no, not Action # 1, maybe Action 358 or 364 though or others a bit more modern)

    What address do they go to? And should submissions be approved by DB before they are sent?

  • PM Dough Boy for approval and to work out any other details. August is right around the corner, but if you can't work the details out in time for this year's auction, there's always next year!
