Would the winners of the Lots please post here to say what they would like to do with their new membership numbers? If you want to move into your new identity, it can be arranged in the next seven days. If you'd prefer to discuss things privately, please PM the auctioneer.

P.S. This thread is open for everyone to post on.

Oh, yeah...I'm taking my new number!!!

I've been very fond of my 1059, and often wondered what 3-digit number I would have had if I'd joined instead of just lurking for a while.

Tell me honestly... jj spins around slowly... does the 333 look good on me? It doesn't make me look fat, does it?

What shall I do with my precioussss....

I'd like the new number. Use my existing avatar and strapline.

What happens to my saved pm's when I move?

I'd like my new number, please.

I'd also like to "buy" my current avatar (e.g. take it out of circulation). While I have also been thinking of clever tag lines, "Shipmate" is an honorable title and one I would like to keep for the time being.

Ummm...

I have no idea what I want to do. I didn't really expect to win tbh.

Can I have a bit of a think about it, and let you know?

Having successfully defended England's world cup glory, I'm not sure I want to revel in it.

Referring to a conversation between Coot and Simon on the "rules" thread:

quote:
Coot: I'd like to bid for a number higher than my present, but don't want to xfer to it if I'm the successful bidder. (Would like to have it marked as owned by me, with a suitably atmospheric nick , but would not use it). Is that able to be done?
quote:
Simon: Yes, all of that's fine, Coot. If you win a number, you can then decide which one you'll "live in", and you can decorate the other one to your heart's content!
So I might either follow this route or, if an interested person fancies it I might donate it. Conditions are, of course, that that person may not be German. Or anything else other than English really. And should be reasonably interested in footy. And preferably have been alive when the glorious event occurred. So, if anyone is up for it speak now, or I'll do a Coot.

Ah, I've just read Pegasus's injury time appeal on the bidding thread. I'll get in touch with him/her.

It isn't practical to move your PMs (or buddy & ignore lists) to the new number, so the plan is to copy your identity across to the new number, change the name on your old number slightly so that it's possible to tell them apart, and leave both open for a few days so you can tidy up, after which the old number will be retired (to post no more).

We'll get in touch with the winners (those who are moving) with more details.

I would like my new number. Can I change my title at the same time?

Best,

I feel as though I ought to donate my new, extremely low 2-digit number (It's much lower that jlg's. Do you realize that?) to the deserving poor, but frankly I'm not that spiritually evolved. So I'll just go ahead and use it myself if you don't mind. Is it possible to animate it and make it flash in a vulgar and ostentatious manner?

As to my avatar and title, I hardly think they can be improved upon, being perfect already.

Wat she said.

When do we have to let you know by?

As you will doubtless be relieved to hear, no.

I would like to know who our most excellent Auctioneer is. And when we can bid on his/her number. [Devil]

Congrats to all the winners!

How much do we have to raise to make Sine's avatar flashy and vulgar in the most ostentatious manner imagineable? [Snigger]

Only joking. Congratulations guys...

Well, I found Sine's avatar. By googling "Noel Coward", which seemed most appropriate in the circumstances. I think it is from a poster for Blythe Spirit IIRC. I am delighted to hear that he thinks it is "perfect"....

I'd like to use my new number and go back to being 'LatePaul' for my display name.

I've also got a custom avatar and title lined up - now should I wait until the other changes go through or fill in the form now?

Just peeking in from Shore Leave to congratulate winners.

Congratulations!

Paul: we'll make all the changes in one go. Someone will be in touch with you by email early next week to ask you for your new avatar and title.

[Big Grin] Can't believe I won [Big Grin]

Definitely want to use my number - will be having a think about whether I want to go with a matching strapline and avatar. We stick with the same name is that right ? Or is a full identity change a possibility ?

Happy Prock [Yipee]

Best Wishes to the winners!
 
Posted by Cranmer's baggage (# 4937) on :
 
I'm looking forward to using my number, and would also like to acquire the avatar that accompanied it in the auction.
 
Posted by Auctioneer (# 12) on :
 
A full identity change is fine, Procrastinus, and you can have the avatar of your choice, Cranmer, including the one provided in the auction. It's all part of the service. [Smile]

I am donating my fine new number to Pegasus. It deserves to remain in England. Pegasus assures me he/she will make a suitable donation to the Organ Fund in appreciation.

Cheers,

Jonah.
 
Posted by Pegasus (# 5779) on :
 
Thank you, Jonah!

I have a fine new number to celebrate an England victory today! [Yipee] (Could I have the avatar as well please, oh gods of the auction room? Ta.)

I'll be sending a donation be cheque for the amount I belatedly bid (in GB pounds). Would you like a note with it confirming that it is I, Pegasus, sending it?

PS: I'm a she.

Yes, please include a note, Pegasus. And of course you can have the avatar.

Posted by Pegasus (# 5779) on :
 
The cheque is now in the post.
 
Posted by Duo Seraphim (# 3251) on :
 
I've paid.

I'd like to keep my custom avatar, change the strap line to "Ubi caritas et amor", and I'll definitely take 2^8, when you're ready, please.
 
Posted by Chapelhead (# 1143) on :
 
I think I've got my avatar sorted, but I'm struggling for a new title. Perhaps I should ask Pyx_e for some suggestions?

"Again"

"... and again"
 
Posted by Little Miss Methodist (# 4367) on :
 
Ok, i've had a bit of a think...

I'd like to swap to my new number please, but i'd like to keep everything else about my identity the same, 'cause I really love my avatar and title.

Hope thats ok. Sorry it's taken me so long to decide.

I'm going to be all shiny and new ! [Yipee]

I'm not sure what happens to our old identities - put away, now, like the foolish things of youth.

But I shall cherish the fantasy that Procrastinus is not gone, merely intending to get around to posting that comment tomorrow ...

<----Oooh! Look!<-----

[Big Grin] I feel so spiffy now!

Have to give credit to Daughter-Unit's BF for fixing up my WooHoo new avatar! [Yipee]
