Simple Auction in Confluence

Hi Confluence guru,

We are going to held an auction (~30 items) in the company (across the U.S.) to benefit a charity.

We are wondering if we can use Confluence to facilitate the auction, do not need to be fancy like eBay.

Any creative ideas? Has anyone done something like this? Or a cool existing example so I can reference?

Any suggestion is much appreciated.

I've seen sites that do this with the comments. Each item on it's own page, and then a user bids on an item by adding a comment with his/her max bid. Works well, and users can set up notifications of the pages so they can see if they've been outbid.

Just realized you posted this almost a year ago, so it may be too late.

We ended up using JIRA to facilitate the auctions, and have confluence display most popular items, items that need more bids, etc., that way we could bulk move all auctions to start and close to control the bidding process. That was easy and beautiful!!!
