  5. Extract from Wiki

    The Pot of Gold is a promotional item that was released in celebration of St. Patrick's day on March 17th, 2015. It works similarly to the Haunted Head and Headless Horseman Mask; every 24 hours, it can be used by right-clicking while holding the Pot of Gold. The Pot Of Gold gives a random number of golden nuggets to the claimer when used.

  6. thanks so much!!!
  7. This looks like an invalid auction to me: It is not allowed to auction off promo items while the promo event is currently running:


    And as you know the promo item is currently available using /promo potofgold (at the time of writing).

    The reason for this (as far as I know) is that it would be unfair if someone were to pay 20k in this auction while they can also buy the item for 15k in the /shop (once again: situation at the time of writing).

  8. Would like a moderator to review this one for legality.

    As far as I know there is no difference between the 2015 and 2016 pot of gold promos. Since the 2016 promo is active this makes auctions of the pot of gold temporarily prohibited. Also the pot of gold is going to be on sale for 15k in the shop, so it looks to me like gladranger7 is getting scammed.

  9. I don't believe it is currently available in the shop. (Kryysy said "this afternoon") But I agree overall.
  10. Huh? It's a promo? I actually checked before posting the auction, and the only active promo was the newplayer one...
    this promo is from 2015, did it get released again somehow?

  11. It got released like an hour after your post :p
  12. But... then I just thought of a way to not have to pay for such auctions if you regret your bid! D:
    If, for example, you're bidding on a cupid's bow auction, and you bid 50k, which you regret, you could just keep outbidding yourself before the time is over. By the time it's Valetine's day again, the bid will perhaps be at a million rupees, but it's no problem, as it's declared invalid.
    I think something should be done about that, this could be abused...
  13. I genuinely think that's a pretty darn smart idea :p
  14. If the auction was started before the promo was released, that might be cause to allow it to continue.

    Let's have a moderator weigh in?
