Thought how come there isn't a proper Auction House to sell our unwanted buildings to other players on the same basis as the Antiques Dealer?
I'm sure it would add a certain level of interest, with players then competing against each other for your buildings as opposed to the specials proposed by the antique dealer.
As it is when you sell buildings it only generates a specific minimal amount, with a proper auction you might get more or less.
Of course 10% would go to the Auction House as in real life and if unsold you can still sell to the antiques dealer for the rock bottom prices he already buys at.
...and if FOE want to still make a further profit there might be a minimal fee to place items up for auction in the first place...say 100 coins?
Maybe a selection of how long you want the bidding to stay open for just like the Antiques dealer?

There could be many interesting ways this could be done with sound track imitating an auction house and a voice over saying 'Last chance, going, going, gone! (bang!) sold!' or even 'if no one wants it we will move on, (Bang) not sold!'

Could we have a simple yes and no for the poll please? Splitting up the votes like that is rather ambiguous given most of those options are both a yes and a no, and all voting for a different idea.
