Next round:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=49624.0


In order to collect more money for the creation of good forum software, the forum is selling ad space in the area beneath the first post of every topic page.

Your visible ad text (ignoring link URLs, etc.) must be less than 150 characters in length, and it can only contain links: no other style. It will be prefixed with "Advertisement:". Ad text may not contain lies, misrepresentation, or inappropriate language. Ads may be rejected for other reasons.

There are 10 total ad slots which are randomly rotated. So one ad slot has a one in ten chance of appearing. Eight of the slots are for sale here. (One of the remaining slots has random factoids, and one links to the current ad auction.)

The ad lasts 7 days starting from when I put it up.

Stats: On the 27th of September, 2011 there were about 730,000 views of topics. So one slot would have appeared around 73,000 times per day. The ad doesn't appear on topic pages with only one post, though, and it only appears for people using the default theme.

Info about the current ad slots:
https://bitcointalk.org/adrotate.php?adinfo

Auction rules

Post your bids in this thread. Prices must be stated in BTC per slot. You must state the max number of slots you want. When the auction ends, the highest bidders will have their slots filled until all eight slots are filled.

So if someone bids for 8 slots @ 5 BTC and this is the highest bid, then he'll get all 8 slots. If the two highest bids are 8 slots @ 4 BTC and 1 slot @ 5 BTC, then the first person will get 7 slots and the second person will get 1 slot.

- When you bid, all of your previous bids are automatically canceled.
- All bid prices must be divisible by 0.5.
- The bidding starts at 0.5.
- The auction ends exactly 7 days after the time of this post. (Hint: if you have your local timezone configured in the forum settings, this time will be very easy to figure out.)
- If two people bid at the same price, the person who bid first will have his slots filled first.
- Bids are considered invalid and will be ignored if they do not specify both a price and a max quantity, or if they could not possibly win any slots

If any valid bids occur less than 30 minutes before the auction end time, then the auction will be extended by 30 minutes. If any valid bids occur less than 30 minutes before the new end time, then the auction will be extended again, etc. The time will not extend beyond 6 hours total.

How come you ended Round 4 only 5 days after you posted it? -_-;

That's when it was scheduled to end. This auction is longer.

I'm confused, in the other post you say that is over?!
The auctions end should be announced in the start post, including GMT-Time.

It was:
- Auction ends: exactly 4 days after the time of this post

When does the auction end? 

October 15 12:29:29 AM, US central time. Exactly 4 days from the time of the OP.

This auction ends 7 days from the time of the OP. That's 08:28:30 UTC on the 22nd of October.

My apologies in advance for being "that guy"

Thanks. I fixed it.

Probably I'll have the month perfectly memorized no earlier than the 31st. Smiley

I won't be around at the auction end time, but the auction will still end at the scheduled time (or later, if there are late bids).

If you are a winner:
- You should get a PM from Maged with an address. Send him the appropriate amount.
- Send me (not Maged) the ad text that you want. I'll put it up sometime on Sunday when I get back.

Maged will distribute one of these addresses to each winner:

Please, whatever you do, don't send anything to any of these addresses until I've sent you a PM. I have a standardized way that the addresses will be distributed that theymos, and the other mods, are already aware of. It'll screw things up if you just send to a random address.

Dollartrader was unable to pay. I sold his slot to Cory in a mini-auction on IRC for 3.1 BTC.
