It serves no purpose other than hiding your bid. Take this auction for example: http://www.forumwarz.com/auctions/show/9469. I put a maximum bid of 5,000, and won with 1,473, but in the end BidSquid didn’t give me the extra Flezz. This is very different from real world bidding, where you only have to pay the minimum winning bid. Still need confirmation from hog on how much he received. If he only got 1,473, then we have a serious problem.

Makes you wonder which side of this coin is really ‘abusing’ the system.

The real question is, will we all need to report every loss to have any hope of recovering the Flezz? Or is all the flezz lost to the proxy bid system lost forever, even after it’s fixed?

More Auctions should use the Buy It Now option to avoid this confusion.

So has this bug been fixed? It’s causing a lot of Flezz loss I think.

Not doubting you about this but have you confirmed that the full 5,000 was taken from you? You can verify this in your SpendFriend transactions here: http://www.forumwarz.com/spendfriend

EDIT – Checked with one of my alts, it does indeed take out the full amount and not refund the remainder.

“Hot Sauce in the Dick Hole”

It also happened to me (though I have no screenies to show), BidSquid did not immediately return my excess Flezz from proxy bidding, which was about 13,000. I was about to report it, when I accidentally clicked **** OFF.

I logged in again and voila, 13k is back.

This has been fixed now. Can you guys tubmail me with your losses and I will refund them?

Include a link to the auction please and the important numbers.

Actually nevermind Tubmailing me. I was able to write a query that will re-imburse you all. You should have your proxy money back within a few minutes. If you don’t, THEN tubmail me Log in to see images!

Wow, I got a lot of little refunds back that I didn’t even know about, and one BIG one on one of my Alts.

Still missing a medium sized one, but I just re-Tubmailed you about that.

This is a lot better than before. Thanks for addressing the issue so quickly.

Awesome! I got 8,027 back, but I hope you already kept in mind the reserve price, or you could be refunding too much Log in to see images!

“Problem Child IV”

Nice to see this addressed.

FWIW, I won five auctions, and got three proxy refunds today after fix of shameful mistake. I think the other two were “buy it now” grabs, so it looks like I’m taken care of.

Unfortunately, I did not bookmark the auctions I bid in, so I can’t verify if the amounts were correct – I’ll take the Trout’s word for it. I only started bookmarking AFTER noticing the proxy losses.

BTW, maybe all messages and tubmail from BidSquid could include a link to the auction in question? I’m sure others have suggested this.

He said that the new script should automatically fix everything. And I think he did mention about making improvements to Kyoubai here and there, including a ‘My Bids’ option. My guess is that being able to search closed Auctions will be available as well.

I’ve won several proxy bids where it looked like I didn’t get the full amount back, but I can’t seem to find them to make sure.

ET: Add tabs for browsing auctions you’ve bid on and auctions you’ve won, please.
