Delay in auction ending

I placed a carefully timed bid on an auction (1 minute to blast off) and to my amazement the auction end time was extended another 5 minutes. Then, it appears that another bidder did the same thing and the end time was extended again. Bottom line, the auction was extended almost 10 minutes, and cost me an extra $50.

Is this a bug in the software?

Sounds like the seller made an extra $50......that is one of the features that I really like on Astromart auctions. Then again I hate to loose a bidding war to a better (or quicker) sniper than me.

I do wish that when I place a bid that exceeds the reserve amount, that the result would be a bid at the reserve amount instead of just the small increment over the previous bid. Did comment that make sense?

I'm begining to warm up to the auction side of Astromart at any rate........
