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!
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!
