Selling digitalpoint.com (testing auction system)

    No, digitalpoint.com is not being sold (sorry... lol)

    But I *do* want to test part of the new bidding system I've been working on. So if you want to have a go at it, please do and report any feedback, bugs, requests or anything else over here:

    http://forums.digitalpoint.com/showthread.php?t=1557641

    Please don't bid absurd dollar amounts (when you hit the absolute highest possible amount, it makes the testing not that great).. lol Use it like a real bidding system for this test, k thanks.

    placed a bid, with a lower "maximum autobid" - it posted the actual bid correctly but I think some logic here to throw up an error box to tell the bidder that their maximum bid is lower than their current bid might be an idea.

    good feature through shawn, any thoughts on releasing this over on vbulletin.org?

    How did you enter it exactly? Every time I try it, it enters it as expected.

    I think there are already some auction systems up there already...

    Yeah, I thought about adding some logic to throw an error, but meh... if they want to auto-bid lower than their initial bid, let them I guess. hah... not like it hurts (or does) anything.

    It would be funny if you all thought this was a test auction, then Shawn says 'Haha, you have to buy Digitalpoint now.' :)

    I think you should put only last 10 bids so we don't have to scroll much
