I am rather confused. Very FRUSTRATED.



I have probably spent more on the tickets that I will on those items.





Exactly what I'd be worried about happening. Though not for the timer reason. I don't use bidblast but I am familiar with these types of sites, making you first buy tickets, THEN bid. Even without the timer problem I'm hearing about, it could be easy to get wrapped up in bidding and bid way more then you plan to, if you are not keeping careful track of how many tickets you buy, and factoring THAT money spend ON TOP OF whatever the item price is at. You could easily end up having to pay over what the MP value of the item is, which is one main reason I won't use bid blast. Too much trouble for me to keep track of all that info.
I think it'd be nice if the 30 second bid timer was lowered to 15 seconds.. The 30 second time frame gives too much time for someone to leave and someone else to jump in and take his/her place and then you're stuck bidding back and forth for another 3 hours. The 15 second timer would work better since it would actually force people to pay attention instead of allowing them to bid when it hits 0. You mine as well just let them continuously bid on a 3 hour timer.

I hate sites where you must buy tickets to bid, which makes me instantly hate this.

this, exactly, but I think that it shouldn't be bumped back up with every bid.
so once it reaches :30, it keeps going down like a normal timer -.-

My feedback is if someone is reading these posts about Bidblast at all? since Shadow is no longer a Gaia employee.

I agree with the fact the timer being there is stupid... or at least lower it to a 5 second increase [at 5]

You know, thats a very good point that I'm surprised nobody has brought up cat_eek
