Heads up - possible bug with nomination bid price

I think we found a potential bug in one of our auctions today. An owner had 12 left for 12 spots, so his max bid should have been 1. He was able to nominate a player for 2. That player sold to him, so now he had 10 left for 11 spots. He would not be able to fill his roster, so we deleted the auction...

I'm doing 2 auctions. The pass button isn't working in either. One is now essentially finished. It definitely should not require an owner who has finished to pass on players. Ideally it would be smart enough to also not require owners who cannot bid on a player to pass (i.e. not enough budget, roste...

This doesn't seem to be working for us. The owners who are "Done" shouldn't have to pass, right? There are 4 of us who can bid on guys, and we all say that we've passed on all players, but none have sold.

Can we remove 2 bench spots in our slow auction?

I set up a bench (res) with 8 players in slow auction 11, but we really only have 6 bench spots. Can you remove 2 of the res spots, so we'll only have 16 spots total?

We're scheduled to begin at 5pm Pacific tomorrow (8/24).

Messed up creating a slow auction

I created a draft, when I meant to create a slow auction (with all the same settings otherwise). Is there any way that you can change it to become a slow auction, or do I need to just create a new slow auction?

Passwords showing for private auctions?

It looks like the auction password shows when I go to somebody else's private auction, and I'm not in the league. It probably should only show for the person who created the auction. Otherwise, I can go there, get the password, go to their league, and Join. Not very secure, and I think I recall that...

Viewing last year's auctions

We used this site last year for auctions in 2 leagues, and will use it this year for 3 leagues. We have some new owners (and a new league), and the owners who were not in the leagues would like to take a look at the auctions from last year.

I don't see a way to see "old" auctions. Can this be done?

Max bid is real bid

I kind of like the setting the way it is (off by default). As I understand it, if the current high bid on a guy is 24, and I bid 28, it will show me with a bid of 25 (assuming the current bidder's max was 24). I'll get him at 25 if he expires. If somebody bids 26, my bid changes to 26. That's cool -...

OK, that's fine. I disagree with your logic, though. The league doesn't know that I put in the higher bid, since it's private. In Bid History, it always says $X (hidden), even if there is no higher bid - right?

Thanks - hadn't considered that. I think it still could be OK, though. Guy can't nom for some reason (away from computer for a day or two). Add nom to commish, subtract from guy. Commish noms a player. Then when the guy is back, add a nom for him, and subtract one from commish next time he has one.
