New IDNForums Sales and Auction Rules - Posted 02-03-2010

DOMAIN SALES AND AUCTION RULES: v1.0 (updated Jan 14, 2010)

1. Sales or Auction Terms
Sales or Auction Terms MUST be clearly listed on first post of sale with at least 1 domain listed on thread title in Unicode. Terms of a sales thread CANNOT be changed once a buying offer is placed.

Bidders to include at minumum Unicode and Punycode on all auction or multi domain sales threads.

All bids MUST posted by a member; no Stealth posts ie. "Bid was sent via PM"; bids must posted by a member and be plainly visible to all participants.

Auction ending time must be clearly stated: ie “auction ends 48 hours after last bid”; if not listed it will automatically default to a 48 hour after last bid ending. No bids are permitted beyond the announced or default termination of the sale. Sales without bids automatically terminate 7 days from original post unless continued by post of seller.

3. BIN and Reserves

BIN prices for individual domain auctions must be stated at the start of the auction and cannot be changed once a bid is placed. BIN prices may ONLY be adjusted on domains without any bids.

Reserve price must be announced when thread is posted, otherwise it is assumed to be a NO RESERVE auction or sale. Reserve price maybe lowered at the discretion of the seller at anytime during an auction.
