    So.... I had about 2 mil gold on my stall. Just put a new Greater Dragon in the stall. Noticed I had 1 day left, placed my bid and in about 10 mins I had won my stall again. Perhaps this is where I went wrong; A message popped up on my acct saying I had won my bid, thinking to get rid of the message I hit delete - is that where I went wrong? I went about my business, my friend pops up and tells me my stall is gone. I go check and sure enough its gone. So, I check my bank for the remaining gold that was left in the stall, nope nothing in the bank box. Growing a little bit more concerned I checked my stable for the Dragon I had just placed in the stall and nope.... no Dragon.....

    Now here is where I must protest, if a vendor at a house falls and all his items are claimable with the house sign and all the gold goes into your bank box, now I ask you is it very fair that I lost everything or was it just my mistake hitting the delete button on a pop up thinking I was deleting the message? Either way I don't think I'm a very happy camper over this....

    did you look to see if you won a different stall meaning you may have hit the bid on first available?

    or did you check the bank in magencia to see if the warehouse guy has it?

    ok, quite right I won a different stall but it wouldn't let me renew my other stall. I did try to hit the bid to rebid on the stall but it wouldn't accept it..... so I did hit first available.... ty for helping me!

    You have to use the Bid Matching feature if you want to re-lease the same stall. Basically, if someone is bidding on your stall and you want to keep it, then you place a Match Bid to keep it. When it goes up for auction, if your Match Bid covers the highest bid, then you pay the amount of the highest bid out of your Match Bid and keep the stall. The match must be at least 1K, and if no one bids on your stall then you get to keep it another week for the minimum 1K bid.

    The Match Bid is the only secret bid. This is done to mitigate abuse. Also, as a separate bid, it allows you to have a Match Bid to stay while at the same time you have another bid on a different stall to move.
