February 7th 2011
I rely on my users very heavily to get the word out about this site. I do not do allot of advertising which is what makes it very easy for people to win (most of the time). Check the ended auctions and you'll see that many people win things for very few bids. Keep up the good work!
Contest for the Month of February - For everyone that refers a friend I will give you 50 Bonus bids. All they have to do is sign up, buy a bidpack and then e-mail me with your user name. I will credit you with 50 bids for the referral. You'll also get the bonus of 5 bids every time they buy a bidpack.
Seat Auctions: I have had many requests from allot of users that I push the seat auctions. Seems a few people have bought into them and are waiting for others to join them. The chances of winning on a seat auction are better because you have a limited number of people that you'll be bidding against AND your total investment will be usually very low. So please check them out - they will start counting down as soon as all the seats are sold.
Reserve Auctions: I have changed the ranges on the reserve auctions. This does not mean that the reserve price is higher it just means that the reserve range is now listed more fairly and accurately.
Item Shipments: I also need to make an apology and explanation: I have about 2 weeks of ended auctions that I have not been able to ship out. I had logged into my bank account (I use my debit card for the site purchases) and found a few suspicious transactions had been made. I called my bank and had them issue a new card and was able to get the charges removed. BUT I have not received the new card yet so I have not been able to fulfill those orders. If you have an item that has not been marked as shipped on your won auction page It will be shipping as soon as I get the new card. I apologize for the delay. UPDATE - I have received the new card and began making shipments today. Unfortunantly I set the limit lower on this card to keep the same thing from happening again (large unauthorized charges) so I have to break up the shipments over the next few days. Please check your won-auctions page regularly as it is being updated.
Newsletter: It seems that allot of users have changed thier e-mail addresses for various reasons. I am getting allot of bounced e-mail messages when I send out the newsletter so please update your e-mail address with me so that I can make sure you get the newsletter if you want it. You can always opt out of the newsletter by logging into your account and going to your profile page.
