    My thoughts are that it's a bit naughty to be dissing a name while it's still in auction, I'm not implying that you're are/were in the running to buy it of course :)

    Seriously though, this type of thread is best done after the auction ends IMO as a courtesy to the seller...

    OK, my apologies, I wasnt aware that people shouldnt discuss auctions that are running. If a mod is online, please remove this thread.

    Cant believe this one didnt sell in the end, it didnt meet its reserve. Thought it was a bit weird that someone bid 19,800 but didnt try bidding £20k as this may have been the reserve.

    Very nice domain indeed. Does seem odd that bidders didn't try going over £20k though, one conspiracy theory could be that it was shill bidded up to that level to try and tempt someone over the edge I guess ;)

    It did seem that way to me also, if your prepared to offer 19,800 then why not try 20,000? I did bid on it myself but when it shot up to 19,000 from 14,500 I decided against going any further.

    Something certainly doesn't look right because bidder 5 wanted this domain so bad yet he couldn't secure it, giving the fact that he knew the reserve wasn't met. Looks like a shill bidder to me.

    Could have been worded better I agree, but the original offer would have been made by the potential buyer not seller.

    Almost certain that shill bidding is actually a criminal offence in the UK, so Sedo wouldn't be able to overcome that.

    ambiguous springs to mind, if you study the last sentence you can read it that the seller can up their 'bid' or 'original (counter) offer' (since in that case I was the seller, i sent a counter offer to the original buyers 1st offer, and that then was the specific advice offered to me via their wonderful popup help).

    confused :confused: who wouldn't be...?

    No, i didnt think sellers could bid on their own domains. If a buyer had made an offer before it went to auction, then the buyer could still bid. This domain went to auction without an original offer.

    I think sedo should look in to this.
