  1. Ever had the unfortunate feeling of running out of diamonds, and having to go mine more with an iron pickaxe and iron armour (bleh)? Ever wondered what it's like to build a tower from real diamond blocks (that you didn't hack in)? Ever wanted to bathe in diamonds, or be the life of the party with hundreds of (fake) friends and golddiamond-digging Minecraft chicks all over you?

    Or perhaps you want the perfect start to your 1-DC-of-everything collection? Perhaps you just want to sink your hard-earned rupees onto a commodity that's almost doubled in value in the past 6 months to guard against inflation? Maybe you want to never have to mine again as long as you live? Maybe you're planning the most awesome drop party in Minecraft history? Maybe you want 1,728 diamond hoes?

    Whatever the reason for wanting 3,456 of the most sought-after item in the game, you're in luck! Because right now, I happen to have a temporary issue of too many diamonds. :p An entire DC too many, in fact. This is a historic auction! It's only the second auction since the /shop prices for diamonds have changed (to 500r each), and the first diamond auction with a starting bid of 0r! It's probably the first ever auction with a minimum increment of 0r. Try not to bring the price too high too fast so everyone can have a piece of the history. :p

    Item: DC (3,456) Diamonds
    Starting Bid: 0r
    Minimum Increment: 1r
    Auction Ends: 5 days (120 hours) after last valid bid.

  3. the minimum increment can't be 0r because for example i could do 150k as amused stew did and it would be valid (this was an example not bidding
  4. Just assume it's 1 rupee and let's continue the auction. :) 200,000 rupees.
  5. The lowest bid increment that an auction can have is 1r, so I'll just change that for you.

  6. 250,000 rupees
  7. For further clarification, an increment means an increase on the previous bid, therefore it must be at least 1 rupee.
    0r is not considered an increment, which is why it was changed.
  8. 300,000 rupees.
  9. That's what I had intended. In that case, whoever posted last would win. AmusedStew could counter with 150k again, and it would continue back and forth until someone bid higher or one of you got bored. I double checked the rules, and there's nothing disallowing it.

  10. 310,000 rupees.
  11. the issue is the definition of increment which is an increase or addition, especially one of a series on a fixed scale. and since we dont have decimals it has to be by atleast 1

  13. As you have all seen the bid increment has been fixed and bidding is happening. lets keep it to bids or questions about dcs of diamonds. If you want to discuss rules please take it to the right post.
