Regardless, if your maximum bid is 10,000,000 flezz and I bid 2,000,000 flezz the current high bid should at least have to beat 2,000,000 flezz. The way proxy bidding systems are supposed to work is if somebody else bids an amount higher than the current bid but below your max, they lead the bidding very briefly before the computer rebids for you by proxy the lowest amount that is both below the max bid set and would beat the new high bid.

Currently the way things work is if the current high price (and reserve) is 1,000,000 and the max bid is 10,000,000, if you were to bid say 2,000,000, you will be told that you were outbid and the high price in the auction will become 1,002,000 or some number significantly less than 2,000,000. This is a problem for obvious reasons.

My solution to this problem has been to hit the bid again bumon until the bid is higher than I’m comfortable paying. If I were to bid on one of the lower Pink Floyds with a bid of 3,000,000 and it says I’m outbid, then I’m damn sure going to make that file go for over 3,000,000. In no way is it right that my bid of 3mil isn’t enough, yet the higher bidder gets the file for less, possibly substantially less.
