What's Proxy Bidding?

Let's say you're bidding on a thread that you really want.... You're willing to pay 250,000 CoreCoins for it, but the current bid price is only 35,000. You could take the long route and sit at your computer, outbidding each new bid until you reach 250,000 CC.

Luckily, there's a better way: Let the system be your proxy and do your bidding for you. Here's how it works:

  • 1. The auction is started by you or another member of ownedcore
  • 2. You decide how much you're willing to pay, enter your max bid (Note: If you bid 250,000 but the current bid is anything less, then you won't be charged your max at the end)
  • 3. Your proxy (the system) engages in a fierce bidding war with other bidders - while you aren't even at your computer.
  • 4. So long as your proxy is higher than the other member's bid, you will always outbid them (Tie goes to whoever had the top bid previously)
  • 5. At the end of the auction, you check back in to see how your proxy did. If other bidders outbid your predetermined maximum, you don't get the sticky thread. But otherwise, you're the winner and the final price could even be less than the maximum you had been willing to spend!
