    Phil made this response in the Auction forum. Since it is closed I would like to reply to it here

    While I'm going to say the NASC can choose how this will pan out... it is my FIRM SUGGESTION that all auctions up until the minute I posted the close of auction be considered the winners.

    Server time versus my time etc.

    Unless we implemented an auction software to close it based on server time, this was going to happen ... perhaps 5 minutes early perhaps 10 minutes late.

    We'll hash it out. In the end, it's a benefit auction and it's in the best interest of the NASC to get what they can for the item being auctioned. If the high bidder wants to back out, it goes down a level (if it's for time purposes)... that's what I propose.

    Again, however, I'll leave it up to the NASC folks to officially decide... but I think we/they should come up with an answer no later than tomorrow.

    The problem is that it was posted at 8pm central time the auction was over and for people to stop bidding. Some people continued to bid after they were told to stop. Some others thought the auction was over because they were told it was over and they stopped bidding. I don't think it's fair for those people to lose because they were doing as they were told. The Nasc Board members took a vote and it was decided to disallow the bids after 8pm. And from reading the response of the bidders, they agree that the auction should be ended at 8pm.
    As of right now this is the final decision. If there is a big uproar about it I say we put up a poll and only members who bid on the auctions be allowed to vote.

    You did bid again

    Er...actually the last bid prior to 8:01 CST WAS mine, but it was only for $26 on this item.

    Just an FYI, as I'm sure that Dave would have caught this minor thing anyway.
