I'd cancel every bid from 11:30 EST on and keep it going until tomorrow -- ending at 11 pm.

Default Tapping out

I haven't been able to log-in in quite a while (system error, etc etc)...As far as i am concerned it ended at 12:00 No idea if any of my bids are still standing or not, i have been getting outbid notices so someone is able to bid, just not I.. I'm tapping out, i will find out if i won anything in the morning.

Frustrating for bidders and really unfortunate for consignors. Has anyone from the AH sent out an email since their last post here which indicated a 12:30 close? I am assuming the 12:30 close was picked under the presumption their server was working, which it seems it is not.

I am done. Still winning some things (I think) but I am not wasting any more time trying to figure out where I stand.

I know Brian and company are doing all they can but this royally sucks for anyone who canít stay up all night on a Sunday night hoping servers work to babysit their bids. Just airing my frustrations. I realize it is multiple times more frustrating for REA.

Well I just got jacked for an extra $700 bucks because this auction didn't close when it was supposed to.

I understand the need to give everyone a fair chance to bid, but the site has been working intermittently. Anyone who really wanted to bid has had a chance to.

The Consigners have been fairly served. Now it's those of us with high protective bids out there who are exposed. We're the only ones taking any risk any longer.

Same here. I am a thousand bucks poorer because of that. Almost hope I get outbid.

A 5% reduction on the BP on the invoices might be a good idea.

I wish this was true. Lost $600 on a vulture trying to snipe well after midnight. I understand that this is frustrating for everyone involved, including REA to be sure but I concur that everyone has had an amble chance to bid. We had two weeks to set up bids, then postings saying 'don;t wait until the end', then 2+ overtimes. Apparently many people did wait until the end, and that created capacity issues. Have to get up in a few hours, not sure what else to say except it sure is disappointing.

Oh, I thought it was THIS 12:30AM


I'll check back much, much later...some of us still operate on some sleep.

The latest email allows for the auction to be kept open as long as it takes to make sure consignors are satisfied.

There's a balance between keeping both consignors and bidders happy....right now it's a tightrope.

Would be easier to accept if they hadnít extended it twice already and said the auction was closing 50 minutes ago.

I actually have a lot of sympathy for Brian and the folks at REA. This wasn't in the plans, and I'm sure they've struggled to come up with anything that seemed remotely fair on the fly.

Sadly, in trying to keep the Consignors happy, it's allowed the auction to take it to a whole new zone of increasing bids that would have never materialized otherwise. They've got a huge challenge in trying to make this right over the next week or so.

Cosigners are going to want full price. Buyers aren't going to want to pay extra money they unfairly accrued in overtime (It will not continue beyond Midnight EST under any circumstances...)
There's only one other pot of funds out there -- the Buyer's Premiums from the Auction House tasked to put on a functioning auction.

Someone is going to have to eat this, and it's very unfortunate.

B.S. It's been spotty for hours. If I win the couple I was leading I sure hope my servers are working when it's time to write my check.

It just closed, and I won my item, so I guess I shouldn't complain about that last snipe.

I feel bad for REA but once they had to bounce the servers they never should have considered closing tonight.

Very disappointing with my item's ending price. Extremely disappointed in REA.

they have 2 nights a year to "get it right"... i can let you know it effected my bidding... my frustration caused me to shy away from items i was interested in purchasing leading up to this evening.

No doubt this had to be frustrating to the AH. Per their own rules, which they even referred to in their last post, it seems that once they determined the servers were not going to cooperate the best thing would have been to postpone the close until it could close properly. By dragging it out and nobody knowing when or if it was going to close buyers may have had to pay more and frustrated buyers who stopped trying to bid only hurt the consignors' end results.

Poorly played to try to squeeze it in just because it was supposed to end tonight.

Not a win for either side...

Bidders feel like they should have won at the announced time, given how difficult it was sign in and bid for the vast majority of the bidders leading up to that time this doesn’t seem really fair and things were cheaper than they would have been at that time (and they know that)

Consigners unhappy because how many people simply gave up out of sheer frustration (I pretty much did as a bidder) which theoretically results in a lower price.

No win, honestly not sure what a solution should have been.

In the past an auction house extended to the next day once they realized they were having server issues, which wasn’t popular but may have been the solution to make. One would need to make that call much earlier if they went that route.

Looking at the results there were some really high selling prices and a few bargains, just like every auction. Today was unfortunate, but I think Brian, Dean and the guys should be commended for assembling a great auction.

I consigned a very large signed card collection, and Iím obviously disappointed by the technical issues, but I know Brian did everything he could to resolve the situation fairly. Did I lose some bids because of the issues? Certainly, but the prices were very strong and if youíd told me going in what I would end up with I would have taken it in a second. I also won a nice Babe Ruth signed baseball at a great price, so I feel like I came out well as a buyer and a seller. Iím sure these issues will be resolved by the next auction and Iíd recommend REA to anyone looking to sell.

I was fortunate enough to miss most of the technical issues...but only won one of my three items...but only because I held fast to my limit on the two I missed. The one I did win has been a white whale to me for awhile.

Bravo to Brian for putting on a good show. As much heck as we tend to lay on him, we should also appreciate the effort.

Couldn't get in for the last hour or so except toward the last half hour...and then got locked out again until it was way over...really frustrating...ended up losing them all...including one item I really wanted due to last minute bid.....oh well... at least the Dodgers Lost.

I could not be more upset with this auction and the way it went, it may be time for a hiatus.

Won some cards that I couldnít believe my bids held up. Not good for the consignor I guess. Actually I was hoping to get out bid on a few pieces.

The 54 Mantle Stahl Meyer. My last bid was at 1137. My bid was high at midnight. Never got an outbid text. Would have gone several thousand higher. Had no idea auction was again extended. Oh well. Should I have used autobid- in retrospect yes...but I didnt know I was participating in a flawed system. Text alerts set up with HA. No worries, it happens.

Like most, I encountered some bidding issues, and like some, I lost out on a white whale. But I didn't lose the card because of the bidding issues. I lost because some schmo wanted it more than I did and put in a higher bid. I figure I had the better part of a month to put in a crazy high bid with a high probability of winning, but I didn't. It was my bad.

I know the technical issues suck, but personally, I think Brian and team made the right adjustments given the circumstances.

I also agree Brian and his team did his best and wouldn't think twice to
consign again with him. It was a tough night for sure and Brian handled
it professionally.
