Hey Dave! I noticed in a couple of your old posts, you mentioned residing in southern FL. If still there, I hope you're OK after...

Hey Dave! It took some time, but it appears Rick chased everybody off, then left himself! = jabber

Reply by jabbergah

Wow! I am truly clueless as to how the other bidder was able to blast the end of the listing with such a flurry of bids, unless it was...

Reply by jabbergah

I thought the bids were manual since the time between most bids were NOT the same ranging from 2 to 6 seconds. At the $110 bid there was...

Reply by jabbergah

Your auction had a quite a curious outcome. I would encourage you to contact AS support to see if they have any explanation of what may...

Reply by jabbergah

This is true for auctions that include a BIN and do NOT have a reserve price. However, if the listing ALSO has a reserve price, as long...

Hey Paul! The bid increment has NOTHING to do with any proxy bids or final bid. It only comes into play with PLACING a bid. Ebay will...

Reply by jabbergah

You must keep in mind ebay's sliding scale for bid increment values based on value of the current winning bid. For bids from $5 to...

Hi mommom! Your snipe bid was $17.89 and your 2 increment BE bid would be $18.89. It appears that neither bids were able to be placed.

Reply by jabbergah

Mommom, Tough to get any performance specifics or examples around here, but I'll tell you how I THINK it works. Before Bid Enhancement...

Reply by jabbergah

Hi Cara! Sorry I misinterpreted your $83 example. Could you say what the BE feature would do in the following scenarios with a max snipe...

Reply by jabbergah

Yes, I had to reread Cara's post several times. I found it quite confusing that in answer to a question about how the feature works, a...

HR, A ham-handed way to STOP a snipe from going thru if you don't have access to AS website: Go to eBay website and change your eBay...

Reply by jabbergah

Hmmm...no questions about specific BE performance that I posed in my last LONG post addressed? I guess this discussion is over, huh?!

Reply by jabbergah

Hi Cara! Thanks for attempting to explain this new AuctionSniper feature that, frankly, I think has quite a few of us confused! I must...

Reply by jabbergah

Hi Cara! Thanks for jumping into this discussion! If I understand how this feature works, AS will re-snipe if the first snipe is 2, 3,...

Reply by jabbergah

LOL! My thoughts exactly! I think I'm unlikely to use the new feature UNLESS they add ONE bid increment to the selection.

Reply by jabbergah

Update: I had 2 snipes scheduled to fire several hours ago. Of course, being the cheapskate that I am, the bidding went beyond my max...

Reply by jabbergah

Hey Region! Bid enhancement is an additional selection you can make when setting up a snipe. I have a snipe set to fire later today with...

Reply by jabbergah

At $619 USD, the lowest bid ebay would accept would be $629, thus your 625 snipe was rejected.

Reply by jabbergah

Hey Cara! It would be great if you post what you determine so the rest of us know what happened, too.

Reply by jabbergah

New look is usually good. Is it just me or is everyone's snipe list now WIDER than the screen, requiring scrolling to right to see all...

Reply by jabbergah

HEY LEXIE! Really great to see you pop in! Having heard about the wild fire trouble down under a little while back, I was concerned for...

Reply by jabbergah

AA54, If you feel you need to give an answer for ebay's glich, then tell your questioners you don't know HOW it happened -- must be some...

Reply by jabbergah

Paul, The last couple of years must have been so difficult for you. I'm so sorry for your loss. Another MIA member is Lexie. Does anyone...

Re: Hmm...
Congratulations R2! Based on the posts over the last year, it seemed as if Rick's New Year's resolution for 2008 was to run you off the...

What a silly question! I did a google search on "uk notary public" and got all sorts of notary public related sites listed! So the...

Some people like to find things to take offense at! Easier said than done, but FORGET ABOUT IT! It really is odd that this person would...

Hey Lexie! It's been a while! How's the young'uns? Your youngest must be what? -- 2 or 3 by now, unless you got another?! Nice to see...

Reply by jabbergah

Think it might be a program written by that specific bidder? I wish we knew the winner's ID so we could see if the bidder had the same...

Reply by jabbergah

So a problem that was ebay caused (according to mxmorr1) will make you boot AS?? Isn't that kinda like, when your boss yells at you, you...

Reply by jabbergah

I'm not support, but perhaps you've discovered the solution. Maybe any snipes that were already scheduled during the anomally that was...

Reply by jabbergah

Perhaps an e-mail spam filter is recognizing AS e-mails as spam? I've occasionally had legimate and desired e-mails to end up in the...

Reply by jabbergah

Since you were online watching the auction yourself, what was stopping you from bidding on the item yourself???

Reply by jabbergah

Contacting AS support via the link provided by Rick will get you the specific answer to the problem you're having. In general, there is...

Reply by jabbergah

Are you sure that is even possible? I don't think ebay allows the revise option after the auction ends, does it??

Reply by jabbergah

Thanks for the explanation. Without it, I'd still be scratching my head about the duck reference! As a USA'er, I have virtually NO...

Somewhat dated, but I THINK still accurate, these posts from the past: <Post#1> and <Post#2> BTW, I think this suggestion...

Most of the suggestions that are proposed, my opionion most often is, "Eh?!...not impressed." THIS suggestion is actually QUITE good and...

There ya go! -- Mystery solved! AS is obviously contacting ALL their clients in a deparate attempt to make up their lost revenue from...

R2, I got the same note after I've had some recent AS activity myself! I'm assuming ALL as users, regardless of activity, received the...

Still have that byline....and I STILL think it's funny!

HEY PUPPY!!! OMG! It's really great to see you!!! RE: your question -- You OBVIOUSLY aren't sniping enough!! I, too, have carried a...

Reply by jabbergah

If you're really uncomfortable, you COULD create an eBay ID that you would use solely for sniping and give that info to AS. Of course,...

Reply by jabbergah

HEY LEXIE!!!! I haven't been on here in weeks, and LOOK WHO STOPPED BY while I was gone!! How's the munchkins? Is there still only 2?

In only ONE case that I can think of would you raise your own bid by bidding again -- that would be IF your current winning bid is LESS...

Hey Max! Thanks for posting the listing. As R2 mentioned, you might be able to get a few free snipes out of it, but I really doubt the...

Reply by jabbergah

Interesting! As R2 mentioned, this may be the longest non-maintenance associated(?) adjusted lead time reported here. Care to share the...
