Private auction site??

Just wondering if there is any such thing. I've been thinking about this for a little while now. Is there a place to hold a private, online auction that is only open to members here or other respected sites like SS.org?? If not, what would be involved in starting up such a site. I have NO web hosting experience, and have no idea what the legal ramifications would be, but from a players perspective I think it would be a great option for us all.

Last night I missed out on Severinsteelsmiths RG770 by mere minutes. Had it been an auction, maybe I would have had a better chance.

Please give your thoughts, opinions, or experience in this kind of thing..... I think most of us would like to know.

His offer was a BIN with a great price. Same thing would have happened if it had been on Ebay. Day late and dollar short m8.

Re: Private auction site??

Auction sites focus on transactions for the highest dollar - Jemsite focuses on the sharing of in-depth information on Ibanez guitars where members can learn and share info- and has become the largest and most successful site on the planet for these guitars.

The classified ads here regularly offer 'Jemsite-family' deals, but you have to visit regularly to catch them. I haven't heard any talk of considering auctions.

I know, and I would never propose an idea that would hurt Jemsite in any way. I personally am proud to be a member here and greatly enjoy the sharing of ideas and info in the manner that we do.

That's why any auction site, whether affiliated with Jemsite or not, would have to be exclusive to members only. I don't have any idea on how to keep riff-raff out, but I am sure that it can be done.
