Hi folks,

I'm pretty new to the site and am trying to get some geek gold in bulk. I had an auction for $10USD via paypal, but there was some sort of bug so they closed the system down. Any idea where I could do such an auction or sale now?

Thanks all.

As I write, your auction comes up fine on my system, showing a current bid of 551 GG and a button to click if I wanted to bid.

Oddly enough, your auction is the only one currently active.

I'm a little late to the party, but I don't even see a link to the 'Auctions' main page in the Bazaar menu list.

Chris, you say 'they closed the system down.' Where did you hear about this?

Indeed. The link is no longer where it used to be.

Maybe the second poster was using a different link, and they just closed the link to it?

maybe it is a caching issue. i checked earlier and it was there. on a different device it is not.

It can't be a caching issue, I'd never loaded or even looked for the link before trying to assist the OP. At this time, however, the link to auctions in the Bazaar drop-down isn't there for me either.... perhaps that section of BGG is being "upgraded" to the new system interface?

I'd love to hear if/when these come back... Following.

the link is indeed not there anymore but if geekgold auction would have been removed completely from BGG I'm sure there would have been an official anouncement, it may be a bug or something

This is a full-blown, four-alarm holiday emergency here. We're gonna press on, and we're gonna have the hap, hap, happiest Christmas since Bing Crosby tap-danced with Danny fucking Kaye.

I had the page linked in my Quickbar, and this is what it says when I pull it up:

Unceremoniously removed from my front page layout...

I hope they bring it back with auction functionality in place so that Geekgold auctions can finally be automated instead of run through a geeklist.

Just noticed that they were gone, here's hoping they come back soon with more functionality, but I'm not holding my breath.
