    PLEASE DO NOT BID IF YOU DON"T EXPECT TO GO THROUGH WITH IT!

    There has been a rash of people bidding and not paying.

    It is getting VERY difficult to keep EG open when auctions are not paid for.

    Thank you...

    Non Payment will result in banned from bidding auctions. If you bid, it will be rejected. If something happens get with the staff to see if something can be worked out. EG relies on auctions to keep it's doors open..

    So, the rule in effect is that the second place bid gets the auction then?

    No.
    Otherwise someone could bid $10, the next $300 on $500 worth of goods and the $10 would take it.

    IMO the next highest bidder should be allowed to match the winning bid, if they don't want to, then open it to membership to match the bid. otherwise the auction should start over.

    So how about setting minimum and maximum bid increments. For example min bid increments of $10 maximum bid increment of $20 or $30. Or just set a rule of $20 increments.
    This way if the winner falls thru the next highest bidder would be reasonable $$ value.
    Just an idea. It's usually the guys throwing the crazy bids that have no intention of paying.

    problem with 'restarting' is auctions already get so bunched up, now 2 from same vendor will be running @ almost same time.

    Nobody reads rules who breaks 'duh' ones anyways

    Not paying for auctions is unacceptable guys, I understand things happen but repeat offenders should be shown the door.

    I agree with all of you guys. Do I have $ to bid? No. Am I expecting a gift soon? No. Do I therefore bid on auctions? No.

    Everyone should be mature enough here to only bid with $ you could live without. I realize everyone has "emergency's", that's why it's $ you put aside you can live without.

    I do bid on auctions and have won before. I will usually bid in the beginning, but if it goes to high, and I know I can't afford it, ill stop bidding.
