When a new auction is created it shows the currency as "GeekGold" but I've seen quite a few big-ticket items listed as a GG auction by "new users" when they are clearly expecting the GG amount to be real cash.

Can we add a notice next to the currency field or somewhere on the "New Auction" page:

"GeekGold is not cash and is a virtual currency for this site"... or something along the lines so new users know right away this is not real money and they will more than likely not continue listing the item.

Right now there is a $900 worth of Tyranids from Warhammer 40k for 575 GG and yesterday Rail Baron was up for 150 GG... both from "New Users" that signed up on the same day as the auction started.
