    Hi folks

    I'm SO SORRY for the mix up here. The auction was supposed to run through TODAY and close tonite at midnite. I must have not been clear on that with Phil.

    I have emailed Phil about it and am waiting to hear back.

    I put up this poll to get a feel for who wants it to close as it was originally scheduled and who would like an extra day for the error.

    That being said, I won't know for sure when it can be closed until I hear back from Phil as I don't know what his availability is.

    I will get back with you all as soon as I can regarding when it will be reopened and closed.

    Again, I apologize for any inconvenience this has caused. I guess things were going a liiiiittle too smoothly. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img]

    I definitely would like it reopened. I was waiting for today to bid on some plants and even emailed as to the final close time. If I would have known it was closed yesterday, I would have put my bids in. Please reopen it!!

    We are planning to reopen it. But only Phil can do that. As soon as we get in touch with him it should be reopened.

    The question is not whether to reopen it or not. It WILL reopen. The question is WHEN to reopen it.

    I have had someone PM me to pull his bids on "principal". If anyone is so upset by this mistake and wants to pull bids because of it, I can't stop you. But this auction was supposed to be all about willing donations to NASC because you believe in and want to support the mission of the organization. It is not about simply buying a plant. Whatever you acquire from the auction should be "gravy" on top of the donation. This was stated in the Auction rules.

    I am very sorry for the confusion but its done now and we have to move forward and see what we can do to rectify this.

    I will put my trust in the community not to take this as an opportunity to bail on your bids. This is a "good faith" thing...not a gun to your head.

    Thanks to all of you who understand and follow through with your donations. Greatly appreciated!

    This has certainly put a damper on the fun of participating in an auction that benefits a very worthy cause, especially being a new member to this group. I am the person who sent the PM stating if the rules of the auction changed - even if due to a mistake, I would pull my bids on principal. Even though it was inappropriately insinuated that the reason I might want to pull my bids was due to having second thoughts on the items on which I bid, I had (and still have) full intentions of honoring my bids - if the original rules set forth are followed. Am I unreasonable?

    Since I have already spent too much valuable time trying to maneuver through this quagmire, could I ask that someone PM me when (and if) the auction is re-loaded?

    Thanks
