    <blockquote><hr>

    just to clarify...due to the excessive number of bids auction will end 10 mins after my last update, cuz i cant keep up with the bids...
    i mean after last bid of whoever bids last + last update

    [/ QUOTE ]

    that was postet 16 minutes after official end of auction, but Gencore is the one selling, so he is the one to make the rules, and even simon cant do anything about it [​IMG]

    well gencore was the one to suggest a proper auction forum that would have handled all those issues. so he is not really to blame cause nobody wanted it moved.

    I think using a proper auction site would have been a good idea in this case, it was a ton of items and taking bids not just over the boards but PM and ICQ is going to make it really hairy. I mean, people are going to want to pick up bargains, they're going to wait till last minute to bid - if its &lt; ten items then it shouldn't be too hard to juggle but more than that and it's going to leave some disgruntled people.

    I did like the ten minute rule, but that should have been something that was either in place from the beginning or was edited in the original post, then the thread title edited to reflect the updated information. But having said that I think Gencore did a pretty good job of juggling things. Unless you run auctions all the time you're probably not going to know everything to think of ahead of time.

    So this basically means "If you weren´t fast enough to get it yesterday you might not get it at all"?...
    Sorry, but I just don´t really know what to think of your comment about some bids not reflected in the list yet.

    And yes, the auction site would have been easier for many - plus it would have prevented people being annoyed because they waited 10mins or more and there was no new bid on the item(s) they were going for... Ah well, too late now anyway.

    On his defense, it was a handful of people who avidly voted against the auction site for obvious reasons.

    Should the more silent collectors wished to have voiced their opinions on the issue and outweigh the votes against using the site I'm sure Gencore would have preferred using an automated auction site instead of sifting through 100000 ICQs, PMs, and 20 pages of replies in this thread.

    Human speed will always be inferior to automated scripts that were made specifically to handle the load of bids that happens during auctions especially at the end. We've seen this time and time again in various player run auction threads.

    Alas your options are to either voice your opinions when a poll is being taken on whether to use an auction site or stratics, place very high priced late bids that supersede on time lower bids, or simply opt out of participating in player run auctions all together.

    I myself, have long chosen to not participate in anymore auctions not run on websites. I don't care if I have to register or not for the sites, I have plenty email addresses and temporary passwords I can make just for the single auction I'd want to participate it.

    On a site everything is seen fairly by everyone, bid histories are seen, and everyone can get their bids in exactly on time and see how much remaining time is left before bidding is closed.

    Threads with buyouts will still be my only preferred choice of shopping [​IMG] No redundant "offer" games nor drama in auctions. Simple cut and dry option to buy or pass.
