Is it true that items will be randomly spread by the auction organizers?

If yes, for someone who for example wishes to sell say 5 bags. They would not simply go to table 1 to 5 but would be scattered all over.

Even worse, because there is no bumping allowed, if one were to bring only one single rare and expensive item they might have to wait for the whole day should the item be placed on the last table!

Sellers won't like these rules.

Were you at the KWAS Auction today? How did you like their new set-up? Did you notice any changes? I did. And... I still made MONEY!

Perhaps you should PM Haydn aka fishead as he noted in the first post.

Clubs are going this route. People wanna leave at 3:00-3:30. Auctions are too long as it stands now. Wouldn't you like to leave earlier?

As a seller...How much does PRAC take from each item sold?

Yes I was at KWAS today and I sold several items and made money. However, I didn't notice anything different other than the room. It was used years ago too.

I spoke with Haydyn. I'm aware of the new system and I'm ok with trying something new. Of course, I would like to get out earlier.

I'm just bringing forward some of the concerns I heard people talk about.

Sorry I missed you. See you at the PRAC auction. I'll be on the registration table. I hear your a discus lover. Did you have the Jack Wattley discus at KWAS?

Rush2112 pm replied to. Most sellers with rare fish usually bring more than one bag of fish to sell but yes you are correct that a random system will be used to place the items on the tables.This is done so that each table will have the same number of items on it.

As a seller for many years I have often brought rare fish to an auction and it sell for far less than it's worth so item placement does not matter that much. As eatmysox stated Bewiskered's items sell for a good price no matter where they are placed. So the first 5 table rule by sellers is a bit of a myth.

Changes are tough for everyone and we will do everything we can to help make the changes as smooth as possible. Any quesitons please ask.

As for socializing I think it will be much easier as you will know exactly when the items are coming up for sale that you want. Remember you get both a list and the items coming up will be on a screen. So you will not miss that item you really wanted ever again. When your not bidding you can socialize.

for your Discus you are more than welcome to bring some for auction and if you are worried about price you can put a minimum bid on your item when you pre register your fish. It is printed right onto the label. We also do not charge extra for minimum bids, or mailing out cheques to sellers.

for anyone thinking about not attending because they are worried about the changes it is your choice but you will be missing out on some unique and rare fish/plants that will be available both in the auction and in the raffles. I will be posting a list this weekend of them.

See everyone there
Are you still going to post the list of unique and rare fish and plants.
