Hey guys!!

I've been chatting to various people over the last few weeks to get a feel for Catskills. Now I feel I've done that I've noticed that the community on our shard has fallen behind a little compared to those like Chessy and Pacs but that can all change if we all work together a little.

Thus I am thinking about setting up a regular auction house on the shard (Most likely weekly) and possibly running the odd event here and there. The question is... Would YOU support the auction house by attending/listing items for sale/donating to events etc?

I've been running events of some kind in UO for years (I've done House Drops, Auctions, Dungeon runs with prizes, Q&A's, DJing, GMing RP guilds etc). So if I put the time in... would you lot too?

Please let me know and if positive then I'll get the auction house underway!

I'd go to these events in game if I am able to due to RL constraints.

@salivern, in our experience, you will have trouble gathering folks weekly unless high pop shard.

We currently doing monthly on Drachenfels.

This is a great idea and it's something that I think the Catskills community would enjoy. I don't know a lot about how auctions are handled these days but look forward to seeing how you do it. I'll help where I can but as you know...my hands are a bit full finishing up things for the Grand Opening of Eventageous. Not all check these forums....but if you'd like to write a book and mark a rune...I'll lock them down on my keep steps. I'll also mentioning it opening day. I already have Foxie's festy book down on my steps. Just let me know. :)

FYI Sal, over the last couple of days...I've heard more than a couple people mention that we need some sort of AH on our shard again. :) I think... *Grins* "If you build it...they will come." (sorry couldn't resist! :P)

The AH is built, just needs to be deco'd out and a date decided for the first auction.
