Has anyone had problems with the timers? The timer froze on me 4 times, had to close out the site and then login again. Problem bidding like that ya know. Tried other sites and had no problem.

Well it looks like I am the only one who had trouble then, it continued to freeze the timer for me, the only way I could at least get in a bid was to use the auto/bidder, the system took over and placed bids for me, the timer still froze but I could see my bid come up. I use Mozilla fire fox, then tried it on my wifes computer, she has internet explorer, it did the same thing. I don't know if I will be able to use the site, any other site work fine......Oh well

Hi Mike,

I know this refresh thing is getting on my last nerve! We are looking into this. Please be a little patient. We are taking everyone's feedback and fixing as we go along. This particular issue is taking us a bit more time to address.

Just to be clear. This is not happening to anyone else. The site is refreshing more often than I would like, (annoyingly so) however it is not "freezing" on anyone else. (so far)

Thanks again for your participation. I look forward to seeing you on the site again.

Kind regards,

Linda

Hi,

Thank you for letting us know. I have an URGENT!!!! email into our developer. I am sure it is some kinda' silly data thing. I am confident this will be fixed in short order. Please check back shortly.

We are having the Beta test auctions today 2:00pm through 4:00pm and 6:00pm through midnight. We have also put up some new products. Even though we are in the test phase, most of the products you see are products we will offer for live bid when we launch.

Hi Lexus4her,

Our Attorney said it is not a friendly state for Penny Auction sites. And there is some kindof scam going on Lawsuit filed against SwipeBids founder | Penny Auction List He specializes in Penny Auction/Internet Law. What he says goes!

Are you a Utah resident? If so, I am sorry you cannot participate. I did not want to lose a whole state of possible bidders.

Kind regards,

I've been having trouble all day with the site loading. It is now but all the timers are frozen. No matter what browser I use. Like right now I keep getting the Kodak Easyshare at 4:35 as the next ending auction.

I just got this when I refreshed. It sat there for a while blank then popped up this.

Could not connect: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)

Figured I would post it so I can find out if it's a problem on my side or yours

I had the same problem with the timers freezing up, from the get go, just today the timers seem to be working ok. When the system refreshes it takes you away from the auction your bidding on, you very well could lose that auction when it comes back on, if people start losing auctions when the screen refreshes like that it will very much piss people off. Me thinks it needs more work on the refresh, or look out.
