Auctioning Good War Fork: Over

Discussion in 'UO Siege Perilous' started by Midnight Rambler, Dec 31, 2007.

  1. I figure I might as well throw this out there since I don't fence at all. I'll let this run a couple days, probably till 5pm PST on Wednesday since I'm probably gonna be out of town. Post your bids here if you're interested.

    Of course, I'm gonna have to eventually learn how to crop images....

  5. Just about 3 more hours left to bid on this (5PM PST). I'll contact the highest bidder after I get home for work and we'll do the transaction. Good luck.

  9. Alright, thanks for bidding everyone, it got heavy there at the end. Since, according to my clock the last bid was a little over the time limit I'm gonna have to declare ropeman a winner, i'll contact you shortly.

    That is crazy, he bided 1 min after, and being that everyone's clock in the entire world isn't synced together, allowing 1 or 2 min window seems fair. But hey, gotta go with the flow of the community, right? I understand the whole idea of setting a time limit, but when the battle is still going on just seconds after one another, you need to let the fight end, as some people will get cut out by seconds do to the time it takes ie to reload etc. *shakes head*

    so if someone beat you out by bidding one minute after that would be ok with you?

    Well no one should never win an auction by beating someone by 1 minute, that was the point of my post in the first place. I'm saying if the bidding is still "live", then let it go down the way it's gonna go down. Now had the bidder waited 30 ins and tried to bid, then that's a different story all together, but to lose a bid cause your watch is not sync within a few ticks of the sellers watch, is just ridiculous. IMHO.
     
  14. I've always been open to dissent, in fact I think we should thrive on it. Due to the recent [censored] that has gone on with "auctions" on this shard I've got more idealistic with the bidding process. I figure if an auction is Set for a specific time limit, then it will run for that alloted time. I completely understand if someone bids one or two minutes after the deadline, hell things happen. But i'll tell you why I don't care. Most of the time it's nickel and dime bs anyway, just trying to get something by bidding 100k or so more at the last minute, which is meaningless anyway. If you really want something, just throw out an amount that you know only you will pay, hell, it's all a bunch of fake money anyway.

    Either way, I can't believe I'm getting ripped by you guys for actually pulling off a [censored] auction for a wep that was as fair as can be. I'm actually a little upset by this.

    thats why i never say when an auction ends but just end it when i feel like it or with a timelimit after last bid. no stupid last second bids. if someone wants it she should be bidding while the auction is going on, and not placing in some cheap bid and hoping that its just a few seconds before the end with noone having the chance to outbid.

    Just to clear things up, this was never an attack toward you, you are only following the mindset of the community, and that is everyone's fault, not yours. I due however respect the fact that you didn't end the auction early, like many here have done in the past. Like I said, you done what you thought was right, or shall I say what the community deem as being right, and for that, you are not wrong. Just wanted to clear that up with you. personally, I think that we should have designated auctioneers to hold all auctions, this way everyone gets a fair chance.

    If you have a particular set of group who you wish to sell to, then post that in your thread, rather than a public auction. (not directed at you)
     
  20. Despite the fact that you are a cowboys fan I do agree with you on this. In the future if I see there is active bidding (something like 5-10 mins after one another) i'll let the auction run past it's designated "end" time. I don't think this will completely eliminate the problem but it certainly lessens the blow of frustration that one gets by losing out at the last second.

    I also think that having designated auctioners would be kind of a cool idea, however due to the State of Siege currently, I don't know if we can pull that off.

    Well I hope you're not a Redskins fan, cause although the Deadskins are a tough team, they simply used all their energy to make the playoffs, and will run outta gas before they make it to Arizona.
     
  22. Nah, I'm unfortunately part of the 49er faithful... which is whole 'nother headache all together.

    I think the redskins will kick the hell outta seattle and then fall finally, although that momentum they got going was something.

    After that, I'm just going to be rooting against Dallas and New England. If those two end up in the super bowl, I'll have to move to europe.
