  4. My take: try to deviate from what's "common". Auctions are always risky (which is why I like them so much) and you often get good pay but sometimes it just explodes in your face.

    Example (only applicable at the time of writing): I see saddles, sugar cane, iron & diamond vouchers, some promo's, ender pearls, iron and 12 DC's of stuff no one needs but likes to bid on anyway. Oh, and quartz, sea lanterns and steak :D

    So yeah, wood sounds like a good deviation of all that: something different.

    Which is my main drive: be original, do something different (not the usual stuff which gets auctioned) and also be a little creative in the way you auction it. That can really help. Just my 2 cents obviously.

  7. Just like shell said, it doesn't matter on quality or quantity, only if you're following the rules, but try to think outside the bun/box... Heheheh Taco Bell... I miss it

  8. What if, I auctioned off a set of DCs instead of one DC?

    A DC of netherwart
    A DC of Dark oak wood
    A DC of... you know what I mean?
  9. I know one thing for sure, you can get way to much for an auction if you auction it the right way, I know qwerty (facepalmrhy) once did get 10Kr for one DC of dirt, at the days it was 30r a diamond. Just by beïng creative, and acting like the thing you're auctioning is the best of the best, Tomvanwijnen's "a DC of the best Dutch bread" did go for 15Kr, becuase he used the fact that he is Dutch, and some others are aswell, and, because they're Dutch want to buy it, or something,. (I don't know, I did never understand Dutch people, maby becuase I am Dutch?) annyways. Something else you need if you're doing this is having loads and loads of luck, good luck :)
