Undue Bid option - Critical!

Post by Toowicked23 » Mon Mar 15, 2021 3:42 pm

Hello,
We had a draft start yesterday and today I noticed an undue bid option. I have never seen it before and have not used it. In an auction draft, there should not be an option to undue a bid. You make a bid it's final, and being able to undue bids could ruin the draft. I could just bid up every player to the limit set, and when I go over, undue the bid to leave them at their max.
It seems like this was used in my league. auction_id=177. I know for a fact I saw Jean Segura at $15 because I monitor and update a spreadsheet I have when bids go up, yet he currently shows up as $14. I looked at the history before and it said someone bid $15, but now that I look back it's gone. I'm running this auction and was curious if only I see it since I am the commish? I'm in another auction draft that doesn't have it, but I did not set that one up. I asked one owner and he does not see the button. So after some time, I see someone bid up Segura and the $15 bid shows back up with a time stamps of 8:25am. How is that possible?
Please let me know how to explain what happened with Segura. Also is there a way to monitor if the button has been used. I checked all the options and can't find it.

Thanks,
Darren

That is going to be pretty tough for me to figure out what is going on with that particular player. As for the undo bid, it is a feature only for the draft managers. So yes, that is why you can see it in one auction but not in the other one you didn't create. I added some code to post a message in the chat when it gets used so it doesn't get abused by anyone.
