    Auction Ending Time: 4:45 Paris Time
  2. This auction is invalid. You cannot have a "Buy it now price". Would you like me to change it, or make a new thread?
  3. Are buy it now allowed?
  4. I think the auction end time has to be "XX after last bid"
  5. Oh and I totally missed the buy it now thing :p
  6. It does not. So long as it is clearly defined, which it is, that part is legal.
  7. I have read the auction rules and it allows Buy It Now prices.
    Although if that has since changed then I apologise for this inconvenience.
    Could you change it please BlackKnight?
  8. You joined today :p
    Its always been this way I believe.
  9. But it now prices have not been allowed for more than a year that i know of.
  10. Maybe I misread the rules
    Anyways, I apologise for this
  11. OP edited, everything should be good to go now, good luck on your auction.
  12. Thank you BlackNight
  13. The Auction is now closed.
    Nobody has auctioned.
  14. The auction must be kept open until the ending time. If you want to, you can just not bump it and let it die off, but it must be legally be open until the time that you set for the ending.
  15. And that is what I did.
    It is now 4:51 Paris time, and I closed it at 4:46 Paris time.
  16. My bad, thought Paris time was an hour further ahead than that. Better brush up on my European time zones. :p
  17. Lol it's alright :)
  18. You may want to consider using EMC times (./time on the server or the time on the east coast of the United States) to help keep things relatively consistent if you want to set a specific closing time. Paris is 6 hours ahead of EMC, so just pick an end time and back it up six hours.

    Of course, you can bypass that issue entirely by saying "Auction closes 48 hours after last valid bid or 24 hours after posting if no bids are placed." That would bypass the time conversion issue if you use the time stamps on the post, which should be listed under the Paris time zone."
  19. oh ok thank you ElfinPineappleO
