    Neat idea, and the daily and 60 minute aspects makes it much more unique than typical auctions. There certainly seems to be more of a shift of late, with many really good names being sold on sites like domainlore, whereas for ages that just didn't happen. I'll keep an eye out for anything I'd like to bid on. Hope this works out well for you!

    Signed up, looking forward to next week.

    P.S. I really hate when web sites email me the password I just entered, security nightmare!

    A quick update for those who've already signed up. I'm going for total transparency with this but quite a few people have asked for some sort of anonymity when bidding, which I can understand. So I have now added a private bidding option, this will assign you a random username for the duration of an auction, actual usernames will still be revealed once the auction has completed.

    The option is disabled by default but you can enable it in the edit your profile section.

    I'll ask admin to move this thread away from the sales forum, don't want to detract from peoples sales.

    This kicks off in about 20 minutes if anyone's thinking of bidding.

    Cheers, Grant

    Have followed the Twitter feed in case anything pops up that takes my fancy. Great idea!

    Where you happy with the first auction Grant? I did have a bid but it went over what I wanted to pay.

    Yes, fairly happy mate. It was less than I'd been offered previously but that's the nature of no reserve auctions I guess. I was more concerned about whether anything was going to break rather than the price to be honest :) Had one small issue which is now fixed.

    Cheers, Grant

    Cheers mate. The time may change in the future, unfortunately whatever time I choose it's bound to be inconvenient for some. From the limited testing I've done bidding from a mobile works fine.

    I thought this would have went into the xxxx range nice sale though. I'll be watching with interest to see what your last auction goes for.


    PS Shameless plug

    If the buyers on acorn and they ever plan on TV advertising they may be interested in this.
