Hi everyone,

Before our much anticipated re-launch we would like your participation in a trial run.

This trial run will allow us to make any necessary changes and tweaks that will make BiddingYard the penny auction site we have been striving to create for you.

How: Please email us at cutomer@biddingyard.com so that we can issue you with 100 free trial-bids (title your email: "Test Request". Please include the email address with which you used to register so that we can easily locate and credit your account)

Then: Once we have accumulated enough test users we will email you with the trial auction’s scheduled launch date as well as our suggested tests that you can help us carry out.

Reward: 10 free bids with which you can use in the future. (Please note that we will reclaim any unused free trial-bids. Your reward will of course not be reclaimed)

As always we are very appreciative of your support
Best regards,

The BiddingYard Team

Hi everyone,

I have posted this thread in "beta-testing" however I felt that it may be unfair to members who did not have a chance to read that post...

I sent an email to help. Looks like fun! A small side note -- I know most users will figure this out, but you have the email as cutomer@biddingyard.com instead of customer@biddingyard.com :) Just an FYI

Thanks to everyone who participated in our first batch of tests
Your participation was very much appreciated

Not too late to join: We would like to run another test this weekend, this time round however all that is required is for you all to be on the site at the same time and to participate in some random bidding (we really just doing a load test here, we learned a lot about our key features today)

All previous test bidders will have their account credited back to 100 bids

We will top up all test users accounts by 10 bids on Monday 28 (after all tests are done). If you have used your 3 free bids we will of course reimburse those too :)


You guys are great! - thanks again

-simply email us with the subject heading: Test Request

I have updated all previous test users with 100 bids and will reward you with your free bids once testing is complete

Thanks again for the incredible support :)
