    Hi Drop Support:
    I just received this notice when I logged into Drop:

    Hidden bidding
    Further to our previous bidding change, we are trialling a fully open format auction, with complete removal of the hidden bids.
    The trial for hidden bidding has concluded.
    Feedback from most of our customers has resulted in us reverting the trialled change.
    We have now returned to the prior bidding model, where the auction platform hides all bids on a lot until more than one bidder is involved in that domain auction.

    My question is this:

    Is this true?
    From now on, on your platform, if I am the only person the make a bid (say $1) - then no one will see my bid, unless there is another bidder?
    Thanks,
    Robert.​
