Actually, he said it ended at 6:58, but whatever, I'm really not worried about being blacklisted. I don't see why I should be bound by any rules of the OP isn't bound by the rules he stated.

Well, DV8Mad doesn't set the rules for all lowballs, and ViolentLee went back on what he explicitly said, but we'll just wait and see.

What he originally said was that it ends when he makes the last post. And at the last post he said that I got it. That's him saying twice that I got it.



I agree Rozz did get in. But it still should have ended at the time stated or even when he got home, like he said.. not 10 minutes later.

Ok, the OP never said it ended when he made the last post. He said he would come home between 5:30-6:30 and post the ending, then he came back at 6:48 and explicitly stated it would end at 6:58.

So, unless I'm in some weird parallel universe or something, this should have ended at 6:58 on the dot.

I dont believe that it would have to be on the dot. Even with it being 6:58 with 59 secs...its still techinically 6:58

This is the reason that I will be using a random time in a 30 minute span to stop my auction!

If not on the dot then what? The guy gave a time, not "I'll post at 6:58 and it will be over."

lain21us, if you have that much of an issue, PM me and we'll see what can be resolved.

I didn't do anything shady here. I kept updating everyone on what was going on. My original plan was to end between 5 and 6pm today, but that wasn't written in stone.

I gave a 10-minute warning, which I think was fair. I set a literal timer, and gave an approximation of that time.
I pre-wrote a closing post, and when my alarm went off I hit "Post." That couldn't have been more fair.

Yes, some lowballs go off at set times. But not all do: The Ultimate Lowball didn't. I didn't want to be bound by a set end time, so I never set one until 10 minutes before the ending. Seems fair to me. If you think otherwise, we'll agree to disagree.

I expect everyone to honor their bids. If you're mad you were outbid in the final hour, there's not much I can say/do about it. I have to honor bids made before the close, first and foremost.

Do I wish I could've been updating all day? Yes, but I wasn't going to sit at home in front of a computer all day to do it. And now I have to go live my life for the evening, and will deal with the rest of this drama tonight.

All Lowballs i've been in except dv8mads had a specific ending time, but were still closed by the final post.

you are being a douche...but its cool with me.

How can he be perfectible on the dot? How does he determine that the post for 6:57 wasn't so close to being 6:58...and how can he determine that the post at 6:58 int on the dot.

It still says the post was 6:58...so you lose the items.

I honestly don't see why people get so crazy over lowball endings... You got outbid by a slim second, you lost an item. It happens. I think the only way that this can be resolved is to destroy the ending bid post, honestly. That's what everybody bickers about, but I really don't understand... I thought lowballs were about having fun and trying to pick up a few items for some decent prices. When people threaten to take all their bids off because of a screw up of an ending time, it's just ridiculous. Come on guys, cut him some slack.

You're quite right. However, I do give advice when it's asked of me and, in this case, it has been.

ViolentLee has clear rules on the front page that have been up since the beginning of his lowball stating that he would make a post when it was closed. Toward the end of the lowball, he posted an exact endtime (not recommended by me, but to each his/her own) stating that the auction would end at 6:58... Which it did and, as stated in the OP, all bids after his post were not accepted.
Seems like everything worked out to me.

lain21us has PM'ed me. Hopefully, we can resolve this without more drama in front of everyone.
I appreciate everyone's support.


Not to mention the fact that, as stated here, ViolentLee informed me that he has made you an offer of something from his personal collection to try and make things right. I don't think you can ask for more than that due to, what you may feel, were irregularities in his time management.

The end of lowballs is a mess. But feel free to do a search in the thread for the item you thought you won, to double-check if I was correct.
It'd be miraculous if no mistakes were made after 18 pages of bids on 103 different items.

Got the first 17 or so packages sent out. Some that have been a little delayed is because I have a lot of bubble mailers but very few boxes. If you ordered a game with a cardboard/flimsy box, I'm trying to stockpile sturdy shipping conveyances.

There are only 10 people I have to get addresses from. If they're in no hurry, neither am I. But I'll hit them up with invoices soon.

I know I say it all the time, but thanks everyone!

I'm all done with shipments. Hopefully everyone is happy with what they got and what they paid for it.
