    I did start a bid of £200 but just watched time to time and missed end time

    The highest bid prior to the auction finishing was '£1,521' - Someone had 10 minutes to exceed that bid but no one wanted to play ball! meaning the max 'proxy bid' was never challenged to pump the price higher to reveal the reserve set.

    So was it removed prior to it's natural end and LITERALLY no bidding activity?

    Why can't people just have a normal conversation that makes sense.

    Simple answer is that the auction ended but the reserve wasn't met.

    It has already been answered.

    You couldn't afford it anyway.

    Yes, answered by someone other than you for some reason.

    No one could, apparently. How much does it cost to prevent you from pathologically lying?

    I had answered in the first thread, so not sure what you're talking about there. Other people went on to answer also.

    At the end of the auction, there was literally no bidding activity. Only the low-ball initial offers from days prior, so the highest proxy bid wasn't even challenged. It was a ghost-town on Godaddy.

    Not sure where you're getting the pathologically lying from. Seems rather random. Again, I'm not sure why it's relevant to you anyway. You hadn't bid any sort of decent offer so either couldn't afford it, or didn't want the domain. As it can only be one of those two options; I'm not sure why you care so much about the auction.

    If you want a domain of value, bid on it or make an offer. Don't come questioning things after the fact when you weren't even involved in properly bidding. It's rather irrelevant to me and you.

    Was there a particular reason you used GoDaddy auction platform over any of the others?

    You said you removed it from auction - you didn't.
    You said there was LITERALLY no bidding activity - there was.
    I'm making no other point than that. My bidding activity is my business only, not yours.

    I don't understand why you didn't just let the auction conclude naturally if it was no where near your reserve anyway?

    It did the owner of the domain of the domain was trying to justify why the bidding was so low which has led to a bit of confusion.

    No lies have been made. Not sure what there would be to lie for.

    There was literally no bidding activity at the end of the auction, hence why it didn't sell. I know who the highest proxy bidder was and their bid wasn't challenged.

    So you're here trying to make a point for the sake of making a point, on a domain you couldn't even afford to bid on. Just confused by that, that's all. Just go your separate way and comment and discuss domains you can afford to bid on. Otherwise, you're just wasting peoples time.

    Anyway. No much more to say on this thread. Just seem that bar one person, it's all people commenting on a domain they weren't even properly bidding on.

    Think about it.

    Wasn't justifying anything.

    I merely made the observation that Godaddy auctions seem to be an awful place to try and sell .co.uk domains. Higher value domains anyway. Something that's quite useful to know, as most people on here sell .co.uk domains.

    That’s why I asked above if there was a reason why you specifically chose GoDaddy for this auction, as I have never ever seen a .co.uk reach a decent price in 15 years of working in domains. Surely Sedo / Domainlore would have been a better platform with a better audience?

    I would, but you've deleted most of the comments you've made, including the first post of this thread!

    Not sure why you didn't just say "didn't sell due to not meeting the reserve" instead of "Removed from auction" - that is what caused confusion (for me at least). Anyway, doesn't matter. Hope you get the price you want for it eventually.

    Sorry. Didn't see that question.

    Thought I would experiment with it. Not had much luck on Sedo with .co.uk in the past either, for other .co.uk domains.

    Will keep to Domainlore from now on, or consider Flip for .co.uk auctions.
