    I say open it till Monday. Then people will one entire day - (it is a holiday on Monday?) to fight and scrap for those items we've all been waiting to snipe at.

    Gosh, I almost forgot to bid on some o' those rocks... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Hmmm, I'm beginning to sense an anticlimax...after the first few days the listing/bidding seems to have slowed...may want to think about closing it, and reopening it a month or so later. You know, to let the anticipation build and our collections recover. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    How about 11PM Central Time on Monday, May 23? That ends the midnight/what day is it confusion, and for those of us in the East, it means reasonable bedtime for those who work and/or go to school--that is, all of us. Another week Bugweed? I don't think my middle aged, sleep deprived heart could take it!! Also, don't think our wallets could take it. But really, doesn't everyone already know what they want, and have bids in by now?

    While I've got to admit that watching my Drool Indicator get pegged off the scale every time I enter a post where JBL is bidding has been very entertaining [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img] >;-D , work constraints definitely make my vote either for today (Sunday at midnite) or for JBL's recommendation of Monday @ 11PM Central (or earlier). [Why does it have to be so darn late anyway?? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] Those west coasters don't need any more advantages....

    I don't care, as long as it ends today or tomorrow. I'd like to ship these plants ASAP. A couple are about to bloom and I'd like that to happen at the buyer's place, not inside a box.

    I just need to ensure victory in the auctions I've zeroed in on and get contact info, so really either way. Although i'd prefer it be closed tonight to minimize the snipewatch [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    Thats a good reason Bruce. All I am saying is, we have enough to contend with now, a very nice sum of money for the NASC. Lets get these items out to the buyers and have another auction in the future.

    Mistakes happen and sometimes confusion causes problems BUT:

    It would be unfair to folks that anticipated having today (Sunday) to sit and relax and place bids, to keep it as is without reopening and setting a closing date/time that is known by all in advance.

    I voted for the extra day for a total of keeping it open for 2 more days once it is reinstated. Not everyone is here checking on the forums every day. I do hope that it is reinstated pronto though!

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?
