Default Poll on Auction Closings

Okay, I set up a poll. Hope this works.

I don't see why something can't be done to have auctions close at a more reasonable time. Midnight or even 1am I could handle, but 4am and later??

Can there be a choice that says, I like the long closing for REA, but close by individual lots for all other auctions?

I just thought of a flaw in the poll: people on the West coast must love the late closing because it favors them. Those on the East coast probably do not like it. Geography plays a role, but I didn't factor it in.

Barry, I think "I love auctions that run all night and wouldn't change a thing" is probably a leading response in that it implies that I love ALL auctions that run all night. Although that's the way I voted, that's not the case.

An ordinary, run-of-the-mill auction with a couple of neat items and maybe one or two things I'm interested in bidding on is not much of a big deal, and I prefer for that auction to close at an earlier hour.

A major auction with a host of historically significant items, a bunch of lots that my friends are either bidding on or have consigned, 20 or 30 items I might be interested in winning at the right price, and dozens of curiosities or otherwise noteworthy items is an EVENT. Couple it with a six-pack, a handful of collectors in a chat room, and no work in the morning, do it once a year, and I'll stay up all night and LOVE it. If that auction went on til noon the next day, I'd still remain interested. And I'm not just talking about REA, there have been other auctions in the hobby that have fit that definition.

-Al

PS - Okay, maybe two six-packs.

I have to be honest... this Saturday night my 16 year old, sophomore, daughter, is attending the Senior Prom with her 18 year old, senior, boyfriend.


I didn't expect to get a wink of sleep prior to 4:00 AM anyway.

I wouldn't want to stay up past 1:00 AM or 2:00 AM on a regular basis, but once or twice a year for big events like the REA auction actually makes the hobby exciting.

Hi Barry,

Depends on whether I'm bidding or I'm consigning.

If I'm bidding, I like to see lots close individually with the 10 or 15 minute rule, as well as the rule that says you have to put in a preliminary bid on the lot in order to bid on it during extended bidding.

If I'm consigning, I want my lots to stay open as long as the entire auction is open and I want everybody to be able to bid on it at anytime.

Best Regards,
Craig
