    Re: Trackday auctions


    I was assuming that the goal of this discussion had evolved to "increasing participation and final auction prices". After hearing myself say that, I have changed my mind. Keep doing it the way it is, it works great!

    Dunno what the goal of the discussion is, but the goal of the auctions is to raise a few bucks with the least amount of hassle as possible.

    And with that in mind, I think the system works great as well.

    Bingo. Seemed like the original complaint was "i got outbid".


    Change the system, it'll still happen.

    Re: Trackday auctions

    It does seem odd to me that there are at least 30 NESRians attending any given one of these TDs, and yet the auctions dont all close $5 below full price. How does that work? The one time I won one, I waited until the last day and no first timers had bid, so I felt OK sniping it. Is everyone else playing by those rules too?

    Uhm, remember that membership thing you pre-bought last year? Once you bought that, what happened to your interest in track day auctions?

    Even with the TTD membership option in play, I'm surprised there arent more folks bidding.

    I've missed a few because I wasn't on NESR almost all day when its posted. By the time I logged on it had been bumped off the main page. So that might be the case with others too.

    Re: Trackday auctions

    It's simple math
    . If a typical day is 260 and the auction starts at 150, then I'd start at 150.. let's say I'd be willing to spend 190.. incremental bidding makes sense and if I get outbid then that's it.. I can't afford it.. that's why I suggested eBay because it allows for that... I think it's better but that's me.. I didn't mean for this to become a controversy.. the simple fact is we are doing an auction in a forum so that is not exactly ideal.. it was just a suggestion
