Hi everyone!

We have been working quietly for months preparing for our launch day and it is almost here! I would love to bore you with all the details, but I would rather let you know about our launch and a few other things that will precede it.

First, we have announced our beta testing in the appropriate section so please hop on over for those details. (Don’t want to break the rules)

Second is that within the beta testing we are running a contest.

Just a brief note: The top three auction winners will get a prize and all who participate will get free bids and a generous discount on their first bid pack purchase.

We value your input and look forward to hearing from you! If you would rather just go to the website, here is the link www.pennypaddleauction.com

Enjoy!

Hi Jets5000!

Thank you for participating.

I re-sent an email verify. Are you using Verizon? We have had problems with our emails getting to verizon email clients. I will keep an eye on it. Please let me know if you still do not receive an email.

Thanks,

Linda

Clearly there is a problem with the varification system I too am not recieving the email..

Also what is up with the name restrictions as it will not allow "real" (realbidtowin) to be a part of the user name however it allowed me to use AKAbidtowin

Hi realbidtownin,

I agree about the restriction. I will ask our developer. We do have restrictions for obvious reasons. I however, think this is a bit much. I will see what I can do.

I just re-sent a verification email to you. Our server company said they tested and corrected about 20 minutes ago and we should not have this problem any more. I am sure you checked your spam. Sometimes it does end up there.

Thanks for participating!
