How could an AH work? How about this? Each person gets 10 slots per item they put up for bid and a section to enter in maybe 20 chrs of info for what they want that would be readable by anyone browsing. In these 10 slots other people place their items as potential bids and each slot is given to one person. A person could place up to maybe 10? items per slot in the event that they wanted to offer multiple items for the auction. Another nice thing they could do here, is from the auction screen, let us know if the particular bidder is online, perhaps give us a "one click" method of sending them a message if they are. While items are being offered they would take up no space in inventory, however the owner of the auction could at anytime clear items that were offered for bid sending them back to their owners. If you have ever played City of Heroes then the layout could be something similiar to what they have set up, with the boxes at the bottom and all.
