Hi Owen, I haven't been paying much attention to the emails generated until after the fact. We were doing several simultaneous bids, both of us seeing "congrats" messages despite one being the true winner, but did not go immediately read emails to see what was up there. We did so much bidding and I get BOTH emails as a bidder and as admin so it's confusing. I will test again and right after we both get the popup "congrats" message, one being erroneous, I will have both of us go read our email before bidding again.
I want to do simple bidding but my customers are voting for proxy as they want "strategy" in their corner. Even so, simultaneous amount at same time situation could still happen, both getting the "congrats" which is misleading to the one not truly winning. I am thinking of recommending they do "odd" amounts. You can see my registration/instructions at www.oneandonlybears.com
. They are quite long and boring and now I need to add that odd amounts will be optimum and really stress constant refresh to see true status of winning name.
As for adding millisecond times on bid history that is better than them reading that each others bids are at same exact second and wondering why one topped the other. If I can not hide bid history altogether which is what I prefer as the wording is confusing and I get lots of emails from confused bidders, then at least my warning instructions along with them being able to see the two times were actually off by a fraction might help a great deal rather than lengthy technical reason about how servers respond differently etc.
I am seriously considering doing simple bidding until bugs are fixed in future release despite customer preference.
Thank you very much for your time. Michelle
