    IMPORTANT NOTE -- THIS HAS BEEN APPROVED BY GREGG LOEWEN

    Ok as many of you know I managed to snag several copies of the elusive Ed Wood: SE. Most of these I sold here on HTF for essentially no profit. I decided to keep one for myself until now.

    Recently the HTF Newsletter went out describing some of the issues with maintaining the site & the costs associated with it. I suddenly became a little concerned and depressed about it as HTF has been a haven for me for quite some time. I have reaped tons of benefits from being a member here and saved thousands of $$$ (and spent a few too [​IMG] [​IMG] ) thanks to the Bargains/FS - FT forums and I feel that I need to give something back.

    So here is the deal:

    Up for auction is one SEALED BRAND NEW COPY of ED WOOD: SE.

    ALL MONEY WILL GO TO THE HTF DONATION FUND -- NOT ME!!

    I am going to leave this thread open until MIDNIGHT EST on February 14th (DATE CHANGED). Please post your bid in this thread and this thread only. DO NOT EMAIL ME!!!

    RULES:

    1. All bids must be posted in this thread and this thread only.

    2. Please be polite and civil, good natured banter is allowed and encouraged [​IMG].

    3. MINIMUM BID BUMP IS $.25

    4. At close of the Auction I will post that the bidding is now closed, any posts after mine on the deadline will be disallowed. The person with the highest bid in here (essentially the last poster I would think) will win this copy. You will be notified by me via email that you are the winner.

    5. Your donation to HTF must be made within 48 hours after notification. Once I receive notification from Ron that your donation has been made I will ship the very next day to you via USPS First Class Mail, Insured and with Delivery Confirmation.


    AGAIN ALL MONEY GOES TO SUPPORT HTF NOT ME!! I AM DONATING THIS COPY FOR THE GOOD OF THE FORUM.


    Thank you for participating and helping out HTF. Please keep in mind that even if you do not win the auction you can still donate to the HTF fund anyway. Its a worthy cause so please do what you can to help out.

    I hate you. [​IMG]








    Edit: $35.02

    Second Edit:

    People want this title fast. You should probably adjust the auction to last one week. Not only will it end when interest in getting this title is still at its peak, you also lessen the risk that BVHE will announce the real release date before the auction ends (and, knowing my luck, it will be March).

    Studies show that no one bids until the last minute anyway. So it would be better to end it in a week instead of three. But that's just my opinion.

    Yes that will be fine.

    Probably a good idea under the circumstances otherwise this could grow out of control.

    I will add it to the Main topic.

    I won't be able to get back to the boards(my 1 hour of Sanity time during Tax Season(I'm an accountant) for today is over so its back to work) for a while so if there are any more thoughts/suggestions post them here and I will get back to them.

    $50.00 worth of food from children's mouths.

    Just kidding, I don't have kids and I can eat Beef jerky for a LONG time before I start to get nauseas.
