    The plans for the auction are part of a larger development plan and we are still nutting out times and processes. We will let you know details closer to the time. As said earlier - this plan is still on the chalkboard.

    Many thanks for the input.

    it seems we have a had 2 instances that have blown up, how about this time you use the community to do some research before hand, obviously we will all have our own wallets at heart but its all good info i think.

    but i'm guessing its all about keeping ideas behind closed doors and anthony is now kicking himself he typed it .

    Not kicking myself at all, threads with a bit of drama in them seem to get read more :)

    I've seen extension times in the past not being particularly exciting since it seem to just keep getting bumped by $1 before the final bids in the last moments, so I was thinking along the lines of extended the bidding in 1 minute increments and you have to increase the bid by 10% in the final 30 seconds to keep it open.

    This means the auctions will end off pretty quickly as the price would double within 7 minutes and would need to increase ten fold to stay open for 28 minutes. So only the very exciting ones will stay open for more than a few minutes.
