The auction ends on November 14th. What happens after that?
The auction ends at 11:59pm server time on November 14th, 2017. This means that we will not accept any bids with a timestamp of 12:00 a.m. or later the night the auction closes. (Please note the anti-sniping rule below). FYI, server time is CST (UTC-6).
In the interest of being good to each other, please do not deliberately place "snipe bids" (waiting until the last few minutes - or even seconds - to bid). Eleventh hour bid wars are fun and exciting and raise lots of money for the Fund, and sometimes you might not have seen an item until the last few minutes, but it's not very fun for anyone else if someone swoops in at the very end of an auction when there is no chance to respond with another bid.
In an effort to prevent this as much as possible, we have a very simple anti-sniping rule: If a bid comes in within 15 minutes of the end of the auction, the auction will be extended on that item by 15 minutes. Each subsequent bid resets the 15 minute clock on that item. It's not perfect, given the fact that someone will always be in bed or at work when the auction ends, but it's the most reasonable and manageable solution. Get your bids in early and hopefully none of this is an issue!
Once the auction has closed, an official Fund volunteer will announce the winner of each item and post instructions for payment. NEW THIS YEAR: Please wait for geekmail instructions on payment as the process has changed somewhat.
Do not send payment before this geekmail. All payments for winning bids will be made through PayPal directly to the Jack Vasel Memorial Fund's Paypal account - not to the person donating the item (separate shipping costs may need to be paid to the donor if specified in the item description). To be clear - ALL payments must be made via PayPal - no exceptions. I'm sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
Once volunteers have received confirmation of your Paypal payment, they will post in the item comments that payment has been received and instruct the donor and winning bidder to contact each other to arrange shipping.
These users will be processing payments. If you see them posting instructions, or that payment has been received, you can take their word for it!Daniel SchwartzkopfUnited States
