#REDIRECT [[Linden Lab Official:Holiday 2009 Land Auction FAQ]]
 
+
==What am I getting?==
+
 
+
You're getting a parcel of land in the Second Life® virtual world on one of our four special Holiday Marketplace Regions. It's yours for 60 days with no recurring land fees.
+
 
+
==How can I get one of these parcels?==
+
 
+
To get one of the Holiday Marketplace parcels, win one of the auctions that will begin on Monday, December 15th. You must be a Resident with a Premium account in good standing at least 14 days old. Auctions are accessible via the [http://usd.auctions.secondlife.com/ Second Life Land Auction] block.
+
 
+
==What can I use my parcel for?==
+
 
+
You can use your parcel for basically anything you want, as long as its content is PG and conforms to our [http://secondlife.com/corporate/tos.php Terms of Service] and [http://secondlife.com/corporate/cs.php Community Standards]. Some possible uses include:
+
 
+
* Setting up a shop (feel free to direct shoppers to locations in other Regions)
+
* Holding events and gatherings
+
==Do I ''own'' the parcel?==
+
 
+
Technically, no; think of it as a 60-day rental with all the rights implied thereby -- also, there's no additional rent beyond whatever the auction price was.
+
 
+
==Can I resell the parcel after I get it?==
+
 
+
We're sorry, but no; Holiday parcels cannot be transferred or deeded to a group. At the end of 60 days they will revert to Linden Lab ownership.
+
 
+
==How much does my parcel cost me, total?==
+
 
+
Whatever you paid for the auction is the total cost of the parcel. There are no recurring land fees for Holiday Marketplace parcels.
+
 
+
==How many plots are available? How big are they?==
+
 
+
There are 57 plots of several different sizes available, varying in size from 512m<sup>2</sup> to 4000m<sup>2</sup>.
+
 
+
==What is the prim allowance for the parcels?==
+
 
+
The prim allowance is the same as for all regions (65,536m<sup>2</sup> = 15,000 prims).
+
 
+
==Can I keep my parcel forever?==
+
 
+
We're sorry, but no; the Holiday Marketplace Regions are a special seasonal event. After 60 days, all Holiday Marketplace land will be returned to Linden Lab and all remaining objects returned to parcel owners.
+
 
+
==What's this about a "limited edition holiday gift package"?==
+
 
+
It's a surprise! But we can say that it's a physical object that will require auction winners to have an address on file outside of Second Life (such as a residence or office) in order to rez. This address will be verified by Linden Lab after the auctions are complete.
+
 
+
==Is this parcel auction officially connected to Winterfaire?==
+
 
+
Not really, although this auction is conducted with the same sort of holiday spirit in mind, and there may be Winterfaire-related events held on Holiday Marketplace Regions.
