    $50,000 starting bid with $25,000 increments? Unless there's something magical about those shops, can we lower the prices to be more enticing and competitive with the market for shops?

    This is the same price and auction system as the front row spawn shops.

    These are the only 8 shops in spawn, which makes them desirable

    Do the same rules as market shops apply?

    Can I bid on multiple shops simultaneously?

    Yes, and yes. If you end up winning more than one, you pick one to have. The other goes to the previous bidder

    Would it be feasible to extend the shop regions 1 block down (into the current floor)? This would allow more freedom in shop construction.

    Per Jamie in the Auction thread:
    Each Auction closes after 24 hours of no bids for that shop. There is no time limit to allow offpeak users a chance to bid :)

    I humbly apologize as I sure missed it when I bid...
    I am old and easily confused, but this has to be the hardest thing to follow I have ever seen on the server :confused:

    Yeah, quite hard to follow. TIP: You can bid 75k on shop 4 currently, if that is what you are looking for :p

    Yeah, this was a bit of a tricky thing
    I'll update the main post with the highest bidder and price when I've got a chance

    No, you had a valid point, it's not easy to see what the current bid is

    if I already won a shop, but I have a bid just under the top one (matrix on 1,8) and he wins, and he picks one of those, am I able to take the other one?
