Basically Powabunga allows me to run an auction where you help me while I pay layaway for my goal and when it's all paid for there is an auction with virtual currency for the users that helped me to win $1500 dollars. I will be putting $500 of my own towards the auction every month. So it will go by a lot quicker. I hope that makes some sense. Check out the link below.

I've received about a half dozen emails as people are concerned that this sounds like spam.

I recently learned about powabunga and while I have to admit that I don't quite have my head fully wrapped around it, I am intrigued to see what comes of this. 

I've decided to leave this up and look forward to hearing what happens down the road.

I am not having the FAQ problem. Here is a bullet point how-to.

Powabunga
How-to Bullet Style:

For Bidders:

- Find an item you're interested in
- Place/Purchase as many "paddles" for the auction as you'd like
- One is the minimum
- Wait for the item's entire "paddle" value to be purchased by other users
- Collect "Carrots" (virtual currency) for bidding
- Once the the paddle value has been paid by other users and yourself the auction begins.
- There is a 24 hour bidding period
- Bid "Carrots"
- The user with the highest "carrot" bid at the end of the 24 hours will receive the item/cash
- The other users who were not the successful bidders still have the carrots they've bid and can use them on other auctions/sell to other users

For Sellers:

- Click the "sell" icon from the top of your Powabunga homepage after you've signed in.
- Enter the exact price you would like to receive, the listing details, and upload pictures/videos
- Wait for your auctions "paddles" to be purchased
- Once they're all paid for your auction is paid for
- Wait for the 24 hour auction to be complete
- Exchange information/goods receive check
- Make sure you send certified mail (there is more info on the Powabunga website)
