We need to have a Report Abusive Auctions function. How is this auction not getting caught ‘automatically’?

Glbumes Glbumes with a ‘Buy it Now’ of  457,000??

Or is this just someone screwing around?

Currently abuse is only determined once the auction closes.

I must have misread comments in other threads. I thought some auctions had been closed early when abuse was detected.

My bad.

what if they want the price to keep rising? putting a large buyout price shouldn’t constitute abuse imho

I agree that any non-junk item which cannot be store-bought should have no upper limit. But if it’s available in an Episode 1 store, and it reaches 5X it’s base cost, then it’s almost definitely abusive.

Does it work in case of buyout. I have a feeling it doesn’t. Because buyout price is already limited at auction creation.

First off, Junk Items shouldn’t even really be in Kyoubai in my opinion, but seeing as how some people like to collect certain items, and the fact that you can easily filter out Junk Items in the search options, it’s not really a big deal that they are there. But how is it fun to spend that much flezz on a pointless item? What makes it fun to you?

And, by the way, you’re lying right here. Your max bid was around  650 or so.
