Jim'll Paint It - Marmalade Trust Christmas Auction

Read more ...

My name's Jim. I run the popular Microsoft Paint based art page Jim'll Paint It

This year, me and Mrs. Paint It are going to be spending Christmas day helping The Marmalade Trust give isolated and lonely members of our society some much needed companionship and a free Christmas day lunch. As well as volunteers and guests they're always on the look out for ways of raising enough money to cover the costs of the meals and the Christmas gifts.

So, in an effort to help, I'm auctioning off a unique voucher to have your request - whatever it may be - painted by me on Microsoft Paint. You'll also get a one off print and T-shirt featuring your completed request plus a signed copy of my book, Electric Dreams. Your request will be Painted by me within 30 days of the closing bid.

Your Idea Painted by Jim'll Paint It
When bidding on an auction item, if you enter more than the minimum increment for an item then your bid will be used for proxy bidding. This is how it works:
1. You enter the absolute maximum that you are willing to bid for an item.
2. jumblebee places a bid on your behalf, using the minimum amount required to make you the highest bidder, i.e. current bid price plus bid increment OR the reserve price, if there is one and it can be covered by your proxy bid.
3. jumblebee continues to bid on your behalf, whenever you are outbid by another member's bid, until your maximum bid is exceeded or the auction is won.
4. jumblebee will notify you by email if your maximum bid is outbid by another member and provided the auction is still running, you will then have a chance to enter a new maximum bid if you wish.
For example:
The current bid on an auction item is £100. The minimum increment is £10. You enter a bid of £150 (your maximum bid).
Using your bid, but increasing only by the minimum increment, jumblebee sets the current bid to £110.
Another person bids £130 but they are immediately outbid by jumblebee bidding on your behalf and the current bid goes up to £140.
The auction finishes and you have won the auction item at a price of £140.
