I'm glad you like the auction addition. I spearheaded it for all the reasons you listed but primarily just to create more traffic and activity overall.The auctions are a good addition to the regular selling forum, fun to watch and participate in. I like the definite end time. Anyone can bid as high as they want to eliminate competitive bids from the time it is posted until the end time. If the price is still within someone's price range at the end, they have the opportunity to jump in, which adds to the fun in my opinion. You win some and lose some, there will always be another auction next week. The sellers and buyers also have the option to sell and buy for a set price in the Drygoods/Livestock forum, or the buyers can contact sellers to arrange future purchases of desired items. On a side note, I don't mind a line of caps or a few exclamation points in a post once in a while to emphasize a point, hard to put inflection in writing. And I like that not every seller is here to gouge out every penny possible on every piece.
Really? That's a poor defense for poor behavior. Can you please try a lil harder to be more civil with your future feedback? Thanks.Oh Jin, it's really not all about you. To clarify even further...I was yelling to make a point about the suggestion to add a 10 minute inactive period. Not yelling at you, yelling to make a point about the proposal. You asked for feedback, I gave it.
@FutureInterest What are you changing the rules to? Any rules changes require a BOD discussion first.Closing this. Will be updating the rules shortly. Thanks.
I was thinking the same thing; creating multiple points across 8-9pm or 9-10pm. And if not stated in the original posting, it could be inferred 9pm.It might be a good idea to have a couple of end times like 8:00, 8:15, 8:30 8:45 & 9:00. Let the auctioneer spread out their auctions.
