Default REA fun!

I really like the closing times of REA auctions. 5 minute bid clock will push the action. No way it goes past midnight EST so its perfect for early risers such as myself. Good luck to everyone bidding!

Default Yep

The last day is always crazy...in a fun kind of way. You just hope you end up on top on at least one of the 72 lots on which you initially bid.

+1, and you kind of hope you get outbid on at least some of the lots that you are winning on, so you don't have to cover a $10,000.00 bill (speaking as an average joe, good luck to all of the Net54 highrollers!).

Is the site moving like molasses for everyone or is it just me that jesus hates enough to slow my internet speed down right at closing time?


edit: also some steals with 5 minutes left....whats the normal ending like, the price doubles in extended bidding?(meaning bids come and roughly the final price is about double what the initial closing time price was)

Moving slow for me. My bids are in. I’ll be bidding later of course.

Site definitely seems slow to me.

As far as the bidding increases in extended time, it can stay at the current price, or go up 10x. Depends on the item.

The site totally froze up (for me) at around 2:51 Pacific Time. Maybe it was just my computer, but infuriating either way.

We are aware of the site issues which are affecting users in certain parts of the United States. This is not a system-wide issue, but we have implemented all backups to ensure it flows smoothly for the rest of the night. Users may experience slight lagging, but the extended bidding period will not begin until all user servers are functioning at 100%. We expect this to be resolved shortly and will post an update when complete.

Thank you for your patience and apologies for the inconvenience.

Not only slow, but gives an error message to me after a long wait when I go to up my bid.

I guess that's the system preventing any extended bidding for now? I thought maybe just the clock was put on hold.

The site is back up and functioning for all users. Extended bidding will begin at 7 PM EST now due to the technical difficulties.

Earlier this evening an outage to our site affected users in certain areas of the United States and rendered the site unreachable as a result. To be fair to all bidders and consignors, we extended the initial bid deadline to 7 PM EST. Since then we've been monitoring the activity and things have been flowing smoothly with intermittent lagging.

AT THE BEST ADVICE OF OUR SERVICE PROVIDER, WE ARE TEMPORARILY TAKING DOWN THE SITE TO ADDRESS CAPACITY ISSUES. THIS IS ANTICIPATED TO TAKE TEN MINUTES. IDEALLY THIS WILL ADDRESS ALL LAGGING THAT IS BEING EXPERIENCED AND ALLOW THE FINAL HOURS OF THE AUCTION TO FLOW SMOOTHLY.

This decision is not being made lightly but we are confident that it will improve the user experience while still leaving several hours in extended bidding. The auction is still expected to end as planned.

We thank you for your patience and appreciate your participation.

I have one item I was contemplating one last bid on. Perhaps this is divine intervention telling me no...

So now regular bidding ends at 10:15 ? I bid on 2 high dollar lots and I think this is ridiculous.

I like when there is a minor auction closing night technical snafu of some sort and people act all outraged and shit ..... like we are bidding on life saving medications for our children or something really important.

We thank all participants for their patience during the short maintenance period earlier in which the site was offline. This was a necessary step to ensure smooth functionality for the remainder of the auction.

The auction will end as planned no later than 12 AM Midnight EST. The site is functioning as designed, all bidders and phone callers have been kept apprised of the situation, and all expected participants are engaged and bidding.

This will be one of two emails prior to the end of the auction. We encourage bidders to use Honest Auto Bid to avoid disappointment. That is the best way to ensure you are not locked out of the action.

The next e-mail will be a FAIR WARNING e-mail indicating that the close of the auction is imminent.

THE AUCTION WILL END PRIOR TO MIDNIGHT TO AVOID A CRUSH OF TRAFFIC. THE EXACT TIME WILL BE UNKNOWN SO PLEASE DO NOT DELAY ONCE THE FAIR WARNING E-MAIL IS RECEIVED!

The entire auction will close at once. It will not continue beyond Midnight EST under any circumstances!
