Suggestion: Reserve auction bid (in General)

Quark March 17 2005 4:13 PM EST

Kinda like on eBay. Yes, I'm just a sore loser on a dozen different auctions recently, and yes there is an auto-extend feature, and yes, I really should bid high up front and yes, I should be logged on when I want. And yes, CB2BANK does offer this service for a fee (but then again Barron was a crazy ToE bidder too - conflict of interest?).

I'd just like to be able to put a max in there in case anyone wants to bid against it so it would auto-increase to my max. If eBay did it, it can't be all that bad (then again eBay doesn't auto-extend auctions).

Thoughts? Flames?

G Max, this has already been discussed here:

Deja Vu! Didn't we have this discussion a couple of days ago?

Obviously I don't track discussions closely enough. Sorry for the wasted thread.

So what kinda bribe would Jon want?

Well, he does mention a $20 an hour bribe in the FAQ. Also, asking for a quote for a bribe is one of the few times when he actually invites you to email him.
