    OOC: He can withdraw his bid. At worst he just doesn't pay.

    OOC: Yep, it appears it was a mistake, and he meant over-estimated, but wrote speculated instead. Still, it is speculation, nonetheless.

    What this means is that no one technically voted on the first day and we have all been auto-lynched. Since none of us were following ghost rules from that point forward, we are all banned from werewolf for life. - Cymsdale

    OOC : This is probably an ortography mistake, i really think he meant over-estimated...
    Don't blame ortographic mistakes on somenoe, it can happen, especially when English is not your primary language...I don't think it was that bad a mistake to not let it pass

    OOC: I have no problem with ortographic mistakes, the thing is, in this specific context, it is more of a Freudian slip. You don't go to an auction and bid, just to change and/or withdraw your bid when you notice that you overbid on something. It's not fair to other potential bidders and destroys the concept of an auction.

    In other news, here's an update on the auction. I'm still considering Denmark's initial offer as valid, for now.

    Offers for Guam

    Denmark : 250 gold
    Colombia : 90 gold

    Offers for Palau
    Ottoman Empire : 30 gold

    Offers for both Guam and Palau
    UK : 120 gold

    The Netherlands have declared interest in Guam, but have not yet made any offers. Belgium has shown interest in acquiring one of the islands for 15 gold, but never made it formal either.

    OOC: There are even various "trolling" tactics that some bidders like to use to get others to bid at potentially unreasonable heights.

    Suffice to say, you cannot "withdraw" from bidding. You can only hope that somebody's dumb enough to place a bid higher than your already sky-high bid.

    Or, he can bid "sky-high", and just not pay if he wins. Really, stop trying to be legalists about it - nothing binds him to actually pay. So how about you spare yourself the trouble and just accept his "new" bid? Or do not accept his bids at all, but don't try to force a bid on him he's not willing to make anymore. You're being rediculous.

    OOC: So, there shouldn't be any kind of repercussions from bidding and then withdrawing? It defeats the purpose of the auction... if I am to accept this, what's stopping everyone else from changing their bids too?

    OOC: Can we have an idea of when's the next update coming, so I have time to wrap up the sale before the next turn?

    OOC: There goes Ottoman dream of warm water ports in Pacific

    Edit. Changed my mind.


    We would like to offer 38 gold bullions for Spanish pearl of Orient, otherwise known as Palau as well as trade agreement. This island will be first of many Ottoman possesions in Pacific, establishing base of operation for trade and cooperation with China, Japan and Netherland East indies.

    Ottoman Empire is determined to get claim this seemingly unimportant island to honor memory of Suleiman the Magnificent and his achievements. Therefore we will offer 45 gold bullions for Palau.

    OOC: I think offer is for all "Archipelago", not just Palau island itself. If not I will withdraw my bet as Palau without Peleliu and Angaur islands are worthless for my goal. Holy trinity is not to be broken.
