Please feel free to post questions here.
This auction will be conducted using the "Wat Rules" (listed below):
With the problems that arose in the auction for the second saber last night, I am amending the auction rules regarding ending time for this final auction.
I honestly had not considered the problems that could arise when a person tries to make a last minute bid and gets the '...while you were posting, someone else posted...' message that would delay their bid. So, to try and make it a little more fair, here is what I am going to do.
The auction will now end at x:xx PM PST on xx/xx/201x. This will give people a chance to read these new rules and make sure everyone is on the same page. I do not feel it would be right to change the rules with just a little over 12 hours left on the auction. So I am extending the ending time by 24 hours.
At x:xx PM PST on xx/xx/201x, bidding will conclude. But I will allow 'final' bids after that time as long as they fall within a short enough interval between bids. Bidding will end once a five minute interval has passed between any two bids after the (for example) 8:00 PM end time.
For example, member X posts his bid of 1750 at 7:59:53. Member Z posts his bid of 1825 at 7:59:55 but gets the recent post message and by the time he resubmits his bid, the time shows 8:00:12. I would still accept the late bid.
I will not say that once you place a bid after the 8:00 PM PST deadline, you are forbidden to post another bid. The reason being, I think it might be abused and someone may wait until a member posts his 'final' bid after the 8:00 deadline and then decides to outbid him by a dollar. I will let bidding continue as long need be after the 8:00 PM MST deadline so long as the bids keep coming in succession. Once a 5 minute interval has passed (this allows everyone to refresh the page, post a bid, re-post if necessary and see their post) between two bids, the bidding will end.
Following on with the previous example. Member Z posted his 1825 bid at 8:00:12. Member Q also had a problem posting his bid at 7:59:58 and his bid of 1800 was posted at 8:00:16. Member Q sees his bid posted after 8:00 and it is not the winning bid. He then posts a new bid of 1850 at 8:00:45. He is now the leading bid even though he posted after 8:00 PM. This may continue for several minutes with various members posting, re-posting, and refreshing. Member A posts his bid of 1945 at 8:07:36 and he is now the high bidder. All other bidders have decided they have reached their limit. Now, if one of two things happens, the auction ends. If more than 5 minutes passes after member A's bid of 1945 and no one else makes a bid, the auction ends and member A is the winner. Or if member X decides he can swing a little more and posts a bid of 1950 at 8:12:52 it will have been more than 5 minutes and his bid will not count.
I am trying to be as fair as possible. I realize this forum is not eBay, but I want to give customers as much of a chance as possible.
