    if I win this auction and have a current shop how long do I have to take down/sell shop/transfer shop?
    Edit: Also, do we have to have the money in our /bal while bidding or can we have it in our bank?

    One week, to my knowledge.
    I think it refers to the ingame balance.

    All answers are inofficial and merely based on (hopefully correctly remembered) experience. :)

    So if I bid and win, my shop won't be instantly wiped?

    What's the procedure after the auction has ended? Kinda in the dark here and the thread itself doesn't make it clear if I need to /pay someone or if it will be taken automatically?

    Also would it be possible to pay extra for 10 weeks rent?

    It will be taken automatically(hence why you have to have it in your ingame bal), and you'll get 4 weeks of rental right off the bat. You can purchase more weeks via application afterwards

    These questions were answered during the previous auction, but I just want to confirm for the current auction.

    1. If we already have a shop and win this auction, do we still have 1 week to sell/clear our current shop?
    2. Can we purchase the shop for another user?

    I just placed a bid for a station being auctioned, but I’m a lil confused. It says...
    “You must have the amount you are bidding in your in-game balance or forum balance at the time of your bid and the amount must remain in your in-game balance for the entire time that your bid is the leading bid until the end of the auction.”
    It says the money you bid must be in your in-game balance or forum balance, but a lil further down it states the money must stay in your in-game balance the entire time. So my question is...
    Will I need to transfer the money to my in-game balance at any point if I have the correct amount in my forum balance?

    Pretty sure that should be fine @Ladyvamptress
    I am bidding on one of the stations being auctioned and do not plan to withdraw any of my forum balance.
    Hopefully someone can confirm this.

    Still no word or confirmation, you’ll have to let me know how they take the money from you. I seen you won station 69, congrats! I’m not sure why my bid was skipped over either. Not sure if I’ve done something wrong. :/
