    Sorry, I just need to vent

    Their RoR auction doesn't send an email notifying I've been outbid

    Some of them are finishing at 3am GMT

    And I can't even see how much they went for because they disappear after...

    Missed out on two gems...

    Same, very frustrating particularly the 3am closing time.

    On the flip side, won two last night.

    It's a ludicrously massive hole in their auction system, especially as they send an email notification when you're the high bidder. Well duh. I've just seen that with my own eyes when I placed the bid.

    I stayed up until 3am this morning and managed to snag one.
