A little curious if the first one has already ended? I know that someone just bid on it, but the bid was after 10 PM PST, so I am confused. xD -eyeing my wallet and the other Baumis cough- :iconheplz:

because of the bids happening so close together and so close to the deadline i'm extending it until 11

You could end it for separate auctions perhaps; I've seen some people do that! But it's your prerogative of course, and I am just giving a suggestion. In any case, thanks for the info, that makes sense too! :iconyeahplz:

Oh sure! ^^ I've participated in a lot of adopt auctions and the like by now, so I guess I could be called 'experienced.' -IapologizeifIsoundlikeapricknottheintentherelmao-

Since there's 3 auctions actually going on, you can end the ones that had no bids around 10 PM PST at that time, since yea, no bids. Understandably, if someone came in at the last minute on say, auction 3, at like 9:59, then the snipe guard should indeed activate. Otherwise, the auctions should end, since no one bid, and it is potentially less confusing to keep track of now if you only got one auction to watch, aha.
Mine obviously, we had a lot of bidding going on in the final minutes, so the snipe guard's activation makes a lot of sense for that one!

Another thing is I am wondering if you are doing the snipe guard correctly? A snipe guard's purpose is to extend the auction to prevent snipers. If someone bid at 9:59, it now ends at 10:59, /if no one else bids./ If someone bid at 10:58, the auction thus extends again, because what they are doing is sniping, and a guard is used to prevent that. In this auction's situation, it kind of seemed like what really happened is the auction (going by your last comment to me) was only extended for another hour, which isn't a snipe really, but rather, an extension. Someone could theoretically come in at 10:59 with a bid.
Unless I'm interpreting it wrong and you totally know what a snipe guard is, then never mind and I apologize for my confusion. xD

But yea, snipe guards are great, and it makes more sense (and is probably fairer I suppose) to end the auctions that had no bids at the designated time.
Also I don't know if it matters to you, but perhaps draw up a simple TOS sometime! There are some crazy bad things going on in the adopts community, especially recently. >_> Not to sound like an alarmist, but always good to be prepared I guess?

Hope I helped somewhat! And cheers to the Baumi species (I finally got one omgosh <3 What a cutie too) and your future successes with auctions and the like! :iconyeahplz: :iconclappingplz:

oh man thank you for explaining the snipe guard to me. i had a vague idea what it was and people have told me to establish one but no one has been able to explain it very well until now.

so theoretically an auction could go on for many additional hours if people happened to bid at the last minute each time?

also i'm very curious what kinds of things i should address in a TOS. i'm not super active in the adopt community and don't know what to look out for

You're welcome! It's alright, glad I could help. I've helped a few people understand what they are aha, and a friend even made a journal explaining it in further detail if you want to take a look/send to peeps, etc: rainue.deviantart.com/journal/…   

And that's right! Haha, with one auction I was in, it took over a week, because the snipe guard added 12 hrs more, and the other bidder and I would keep bidding around the 11th hour or so...lD

Let's see, common rules I've seen are:
-Whether you allow people to resell your adopts or not. I think it's ok to resell, but definitely only at the price you got the adopt for. For example, my girl could only be resold for 140. Unless there was additional art I have of her that I commissioned or drew, then the value can be increased somewhat, but not exorbitantly.
-Whether or not you let people trade or gift the adopts!
-If people can edit your adopts (minutely or drastically)(such as clothing, hairstyles, etc) (Generally a bad idea to allow drastic edits because what if thy make a completely different design lol)
-If people can use it for commercial works, or if they should discuss it with you first, and the like. (Some artists allow it, with crediting, some don't.)
-No refunds
-People cannot copy/trace/heavily reference/etc!
-If people back out of an auction or file a chargeback, potentially blacklist them. (Unless there was a really good reason I suppose)
-If you want people to credit you for the adopt, and how often. (Does it need to be every artwork they get of them, etc)
-If people can repost the OC in their gallery (with credit of course)
-How long a person has to pay/hold (within reason of course, someone holding for example, a month is just....>_>' )

That's not to say you got to do all of this of course! Use and alter to your choosing. But people can and will find loopholes sometimes, aha, if a TOS doesn't cover itself well. Again, I don't mean to be an alarmist, but always good to be prepared. 
Lately, the adopts and commission (but mostly adopts) have been hit with huge chargeback scandals (on top of usual infringement, art theft, etc...lD), and just yea, customers and artists need to protect themselves from scammers and jerkwads.

I hope I didn't scare you off of adopts LOL.
