I think several people have suggested an awards type ceremony for te group....

Some suggestions for categories:

1. Best Buy of the year
2. Worst buy of the Year
3. Best Fun find
4. Almost best buy of the year

I am sure there are more any suggestions?

Also lets look at nominations

For example  I would nominate Johnhuck for #4 for the Almost ST1 win!

Given Christmas is rapidly approaching maybe we can come up with some small prizes for the winners ....

What about Best Snipe? Smallest amount closest to the end time... add the cents of the winning marhin to the seconds left in the auction to get the snipe value. Requires some guesswork on the high bidders max bid, as well as the dexterity to get the bid in as late as possible.

A bonus for anyone getting a one second, one cent snipe.

And a related award... Best Nastygram - it doesn't happen all that often, but occasionally losing bidders have been known to email a winner with abuse after they've been sniped. Makes fun bedtime reading.

And one more... how about Most Stupid Question. Anyone running auctions will have experience with how stupid Ask the Seller questions from potential bidders can be.

Regards

Mike
