Question: How do I participate?
Answer: Simply register your nickname on the irc.systemnet.info server and join the #URPG channel at the correct time. Please register ahead of time. Registering your nickname is very important so nobody is able to impersonate you. If you do not register your nickname, you may not be able to join the channel! If you need assistance in registering your nickname, just post in this thread. Once you are in the channel and the auction starts, note the following auction procedures and rules.
- The starting bid is 1,000.
- The minimum amount to increase a bid is 500.
- The maximum amount to increase a bid is 10,000.
- You can only increase bids by multiples of 500, meaning you cant bid 9,750 or 12,797.
- If you make a valid bid (a bid within the minimum and maximum constraints) with money you do not have, you will be severely punished, even if it is a joke.
- Once you enter a bid, you can't take it back.
- The winner of an auction will be the person whose bid lasts 30 seconds without interruption of a higher bid.
- Each person is only allowed to win one Pokemon. This means you can't bid after you have won once.
There will be 17 Pokemon up for bid, unless there are less than 20 people in the channel. In that case, only the first 11 Pokemon will be up for bid. The 17 Pokemon represent each type. They will be up for bid in this random order.
Dragon: Horsea (not Dragon, but close enough)
Water: Slowpoke + 5 TMs
Fire: Vulpix + 5 TMs
Grass: Cottonee + 5 TMs
Before and after the auction, a special, prize awarding FFA may occur, as well as a mini-tournament of sorts.
Post in here anything relevant. If enough people disagree with something about the auction, it will be changed. This extends to the Pokemon as well. For example, if you don't want Sigilyph to be the Flying Pokemon, go ahead and post and make your own suggestion. However, be sure to post that you do want Sigilyph to be the Flying Pokemon if other people start saying they don't want it.
