    Frustrated! I wanted one of those domains but I saw 2pm and thought GMT, and missed it.

    Makes the case for the long raging debate that we ( @RobM @bluerock and others ) often have about "don't leave bidding to the last minute"... I seemed to have picked up 9 out of 23 domains we were bidding on... won't count chickens until they are on tag.

    TBF... the dashboard and I think auction page itself did have the auction time/clock in the top right... but I only realised it wasn't GMT at 13:summing when I went to check on the auctions and noticed they were all ended... so you weren't alone there.

    Why can't we place any bids ?

    The email from domainorder and website clearly states 14:00 CET.

    It's not yet 14:00 CET

    Yeah, that's totally fair enough! I was just cross with myself. I don't suppose artificialintelligence.uk failed to sell? I wanted that one.

    It is currently 13:28 CET. So there should be plenty of time to bid right now. Why are the auctions showing as closed?

    I think medit is correct , NL is currently on CEST not CET , just like we are on BST and not GMT. I think you’ve messed up there guys.

    It's 13:28 CET. Domainorder should extend the auctions.

    Jesus christ, his customers are going to be annoyed that they missed out on willing customers. All of the winning bidder emails will have been sent automatically now and it's all finalised, no chance for renegotiation now

    Your marketing emails clearly state 14:00 CET end date. It is currently 13:35 CET.

    Please extend the auctions.

    bad for customers but i would think that error would have cost the vendor at least 50-100k (euros!)

    Have they? I've not had anything yet... wondering what the process is for the ones we've won.

    If the auctions have ended, they are binding, it would be the same the other way around...
