Step two - Fill in the title and tags (usually the type of item and rarity is enough for tags)

Step three - Add a timer and bidding guidelines

Step Three (Continued) - After you click on create a timer, this is what will pop up below (the time is up to you to choose, you're not obligated to set it up for 7 days this is only used for the tutorial)

Step four - Flavor text, and bidding instructions ( you want to be as clear as day when you add bidding instructions to avoid confusion or bid withdraws)

This layout is the most optimal, You can go ahead and copy this if you feel the need to, and place the timers' BBCODE below it (leave a space for less clutter)

 

Starting Bid/Reserve: 

Min Increase: 

Snipe Protection: 

Buyout:

I agree with Wonka. Using the incorrect forum board is "How NOT to: Auction"
