Just started using BGG auctions and I'm curious what happened here. An auction just ended that I had set a max bid on. I was never notified of being outbid.
But it's was won by someone else. Their bid was lower than my max bid. Can the auction be ended early or something? The other auctions I've bid on, it would rebid for me above the previous bidder if it still hadn't reached my max.
Is this a bug or a feature?
Probably a bit of both. Not sure of exactly the scenario, but I'm assuming that you bid on an "auction" geeklist. It is all done manually. There is no automatic bid tracking like on eBay.
Aldie (Scott) has said many times that redoing the marketplace is high on the priorities for BGG.
