BACHELOR AUCTION
Money can't buy you love, but it can buy you a date!

INTRODUCTION

    In an effort to raise money for the Wizarding Orphans and Puppies Fund of Great Britan, the BUMM has arranged to auction off several eligible (and not so eligible) bachelors later this month! Bidders can be of any sex or orientation. Any magical character is invited to participate!

    A life sized cupid statue has been placed in the Atrium, just outside the floo fireplaces and will remain there for five days. Males interested in being auctioned off need only write their name on a slip of parchment and place it in cupid's diaper - he'll take care of the rest!*

    Bachelors will have an opportunity to strut their stuff for potential bidders the morning before the bid boxes are rolled out. Boxes will remain in the Atrium for 5 business days, after which time whichever lucky person who submitted the highest bid will win a fabulous date with that bachelor!**

    Considering how the crack BUMM members have been so far, who knows if any wacky mix-ups are in store? >.>

      *Note: It seems someone entered a handful of names as a joke. Unfortunately, entry of a name into cupid's diaper is a magically binding contract and those men entered are still strongly advised to participate. The BUMM apologizes for any inconvenience this may have caused and assures the culprit will be found.
      **Dates are guaranteed to last at least 3 hours.No refunds will be given for dates that do not go as planned and the BUMM cannot be held responsible for any injuries, STDs, or pregnancies that result from these dates.


HOW IT WORKS

Spoiler: phase 1 - CLOSED show
    Phase 1 signing up your bachelors: SIGNUPS ARE NOW CLOSED!

    Between now and the end of the day Feb 25th, reply to this post using the code below for any male characters you want to put up for auction. Any magical male characters are eligible, they do not have to work for the Ministry.

    Have a dude you want to include but can't mentally justify him entering himself? He could have been entered by a friend as a joke, or he could be one of the random men entered by the pranksters.

    Once you have submitted your bachelor's name to the plot, hop on over to this thread and have him strut his stuff to entice bidders!

    Code: Select all
    [b]I'm sexy and I know it:[/b] CHARACTER NAME


Spoiler: phase 2 - CLOSED show
Phase 2 bidding: Bidding is now closed!

    Bidding HAS BEEN EXTENDED until the end of day MARCH 7TH! The list of bachelors is below. Any magical characters can bid, and characters can bid on multiple bachelors. The bidding will take place via a silent auction, with characters writing down their bid and slipping it into the bachelor's auction box. Bids of your time will also be accepted for this great cause. The rate of conversion is 1 hour of volunteer work = 2 Galleons.

    Characters can bid money or volunteer time on behalf of another character, playing cupid (or trolling them)! Don't have a character that would play cupid? Make an NPC >.>

    The minimum bid is 10 Gallons with no maximum. The BUMM anticipates the average bid to be in the 50-100G range. Last year's highest bid was 578G!

    Place your bid by PMing MD with the following codes. Put the words "Bachelor Auction" in the subject line. You can place multiple bids in one PM.

    If your character is bidding for themselves:
    Code: Select all
    [b]YOUR CHARACTER[/b] is bidding [b]NUMBER[/b] galleons/hrs for [b]BACHELOR'S NAME[/b]!   


    If your character is bidding on behalf of someone else:
    Code: Select all
    [b]YOUR CHARACTER[/b] is bidding [b]NUMBER[/b] galleons/hrs on behalf of [b]SOME OTHER CHARACTER'S NAME[/b] for [b]BACHELOR'S NAME[/b]!   


    Cheating - CHEATING IS NOW OPEN - If your character is the sort to try and peek into the box or bribe someone for info, 3 days into the bidding window, you can PM MD to see if your bid is the highest. I will not tell you how much the highest bid is, just whether or not you are the highest. At that time, you can choose to place another bid.


Phase 3 dating: The list of winning bidders and their dates is update below!
    For their dates, winning bidders can select from this list of BUMM sanctioned date scenarios, or you can write your own!

    • Romantic boat ride
    • Muggle move tickets
    • Dinner at super fancy restaurant
    • Two tickets to a quidditch game
    • Dinner and a concert
    • A carnival (perhaps apparating to somewhere warmer)
    • Muggle Bowling
    • wine/food tasting event
    • Rock climbing
    • Dragon watching (like whale watching)
    • Other super awesome scenario you come up with yourself!

    If you start a thread as part of this event, reply here with a link to your thread so it can be added to the masterlist, and copy & paste this code into the beginning of the first post:

Sign-ups are now CLOSED

Bidding is now OPEN until the end of day Mar 3rd.



And on a personal note - To keep things fair, I've already recorded the bids my characters/NPCs wanted to place, before any of the other bids came in.

BIDDING HAS BEEN EXTENDED UNTIL END DAY FRIDAY, MARCH 7TH.

Since I've been crazy town busy, I just haven't been around to answer questions and respond to cheat requests.

BUT MY EMOTIONAL STRAIN HAS A BRIGHT SIDE. For you at least. I'm extending things until the end of this week to make up for it.

AND AND AND! I made this fun thread for ppl to post gifs. Like, for your character bidding.
