    I do apologize. I think I was the first offender when I did the ole' "too rich for my blood" on AVs heli on opening day thus probably giving at least one or two who didn't read the rules fully the idea it was OK.

    I did read the rules (twice), but I focused more on bidding increments and listing rules so must have perused right over this section.

    Again sorry.

    I agree that this is frustrating for many participants who want to fully 'enjoy' the auction atmosphere of bidding, commenting, admiring, busting chops, pushing people to bid more, etc.

    There's always the chat box on the main discussion page for comments & maybe we should just create an auction discussion thread for auction comments ......
    i like your idea, wonder if the mods would care to take a shot and try it?

    To be honest, this is true. I counted up the total amount of money in bids yesterday(doing great, so far!), and I actually did get confused on a few on which was the real bid or where the last bid was.

    We've tried the "A topic just for comments" reg. the "Lets see you!" picture thread and it didn't work. Feel free though! Make it in this forum and I'll even make it a sticky for you!

    Seems like a good idea to have a discussion thread.
