You might want to check the rules again concerning incorrect bids (which were also pointed out just a few posts ago in this thread.)  :toth:

Also, alexlnumber1 should probably know that the last bid he has made on Guardini is invalid. But it doesn't mind me to get him for less this way :P

1. I'm afraid it doesn't work like this. There are no invalid bids here. Should he win the bidding, his bid will be corrected to the lowest correct value. In this example, 275 becomes 280. Every next bid will also be automatically corrected to 310 minimum.

2. Big thanks to Flu, who is helping me big time with signing contracts and moving old threads. The man is a machine!!!

3. As you might have noticed, we have a new header. There are still small mistakes (2 teams missing and they should link directly to the google doc), but they should be corrected soon.

4. We still need 1 substitute user soon, for a very strong team. Pull your strings on the internets, people!

That's all for today. I'll get back to my double standards now.

I see that now. And to be honest I don't really agree with it. I mean, why even have the minimum increase if you can go lower and still have the winning bid. It doesn't really makes sense to me, but if those are the rules...

You didn't understand me. He DID increase the bid with the official minimum increment, even if he doesn't know it yet. So no, you cannot go lower and still have the winning bid.

That basically makes no sense.

And what you are saying is that if someone bids on a rider 1M and I bid 1,000,001, I still have the winning bid even though the minimum increase is 100k in this case.

But I'll leave it this way since that's how the rules are made.

I'm afraid that's the only way to do it, as I see it.
What other solution that doesn't ruin the 48 hours clock would you suggest?

The minimum increase is there for a reason and people should respect it and be careful that they are within it when they make a bid.

If someone makes a bid on rider X of 1 million and if there are no correct counter-bids (at least 1.1 millions) in the next 48 hours then the rider is his.

Well, sure, but keep the spirit of the rule in mind. If someone overbids by 1, or is showing in his bidding that he clearly doesn't understand or didn't read the rules, I'm sure someone will point him to those rules and he will then hopefully follow the process as it was intended. If not and someone is purposely and consistently being facetious about it, that can be dealt with on an individual basis.

But in most cases where someone bids too low, it's simply a matter of a slight error in calculation or being a bit distracted or whatever. The rule is simply this game's version of a "bid the next lowest amount" button. :)

Unfortunately, you still haven't found a solution that doesn't mess with the clock. Because in your example, the 48 hours clock would start from the invalid bid as seen from outside, i.e. without entering the thread. But keep thinking, we're always open to improvements!

That, and what Flu said.

I didn't fully understand what you meant by the 48 hours clock. I don't think there's a way we can change that.

But it's pretty unfair in my opinion for a rider a rider to go to someone who didn't even make a valid (from my point of view) bid.
