Auction Shop Rules
This section outlines the
rules solely for Bidders.
All auction shops can only be created upon approval of an Auction Moderator.
Please refer to the guide on how to set up an auction.
You must fill an application here [link will be added]
Unapproved auction shops will not be made public until an application is completed.
All Auctions must be GA
Any and all auction pieces must follow our Image Restrictions.
However, you may host an EC auction ONLY if it is properly censored.
Bidders may privately message Auctioneer to view a watermarked uncensored version.
If the uncensored piece is used on GASR, both auctioneer and winner will be penalized accordingly.
You may ONLY auction “adoptables”.
We do not allow unedited screenies/screenie packs to be auctioned.
Display pictures crops can be included with your adoptables but they cannot be sold alone.
Enhanced screenies, ‘’scratch’’ art, pixels are allowed as adoptables.
The limit amount of adoptables being auctioned per batch is 3.
This is to avoid artists auctioning rushed artwork.
This also prevents an auction shop being used as a regular premade shop.
Your batch will not be approved until you choose up to 3 pieces to auction.
Auctioning more than 3 at a time will result in your shop being locked.
It will be unlocked once no more than 3 pieces are chosen.
References for each artwork/batch must be included.
References used must either be sent in a PM to an auction moderator or included in your shop.
This is to make sure every auction piece is not heavily referenced or stolen.
Watermark your premades.
This is to prevent theft for before and after the auction is over.
We will NOT allow unwatermarked pieces to be auctioned.
It's generally a good idea to watermark any art you post to discourage thieves.
Unwatermarked adoptables will be removed from your shop.
This is to avoid people creating multiple shops to bypass the cooldown.
Both shops will be locked until you remove yourself from one.
The wait time to set up a new auction in your shop is minimum of 10 days.
This is to ensure that auctions are special and don’t go unnoticed.
These shops still belong in the auction subforum.
Your auction shop will be locked until the cool-down period has passed.
First offense will result in a friendly reminder.
Second offense will result in an official warning and a point.
Third offense will result in an official warning, a point, and a permanent ban from the auction sub-forum.
You must keep an auction shop for at least 2 months before creating a new one.
The 2 months starts from the date of creation of your first shop.
Any new art styles must be approved before being auctioned off.
This allows us to make sure you are not auctioning stolen artwork.
Your new art styles can be auctioned after getting an auction moderator’s approval.
Please PM an auction moderator with your new style before auctioning it.
Unapproved adoptables will be removed and your shop will be locked for review.
A collaboration is a piece created by 2 or more artists.
For auction shops, there can ONLY be 2 artists per collaboration.
All artists involved must make a post in the beginning of the thread.
Artists involved with the collaboration will share the auction cool-down.
Artist have the right to decline art to a winner for reasons they see fit.
In such cases, the next highest bidders will win the piece(s).
An Auction Moderator should be notified so they can contact the declined winner.
Bidders should be told ASAP so the next highest bidder can be notified.
Auctions may be cancelled for VALID reasons.
You may not cancel an auction because you are not getting the bids you want.
However, we understand unexpected things occur, such as a hard drive crash or loss of data.
You must contact an auction moderator ASAP.
Your auction cool-down will be reset.
