I would like for my completed bids to be visible for a longer period of time -- at least one week, if not 30 days. This will give me more time to record information about the items that I don't win. Thanks. Chuck

I will see what I can do - end of auction notifications seem like one way for users to retain this information, and not overload my database server. Would this work for you?

I'll just throw my two cents in here: Keeping a bid history is a task that should be done on the client side. There is nothing time-critical about it and therefore no reason for it to take up server resources.

I keep hoping someone more expert than I can set up JBidWatcher to use the Gixen API so that we can enter snipes using the JBidWatcher interface; then, JBidWatcher can take care of maintaining the bid histories (which it does very well).

I guess that end of auction notifications would help.

Here's another idea: only retain bid history (for 1-4 weeks) for unsuccesful bids -- since the successful bids are shown on eBay.

So are the unsuccessful ones if you put them into your watch list on eBay.

I would like to bring this thread up again.

I am also badly missing a bid history which should be accessible for at least a month after the auction has ended.

If this would be implemented in form of an "end of auction notification" email the system should accumulate the data for a week before sending the notification in order to avoid an overload of messages in the postbox.


thanks a million for considering this for the future

Kai,

A Beta version was implemented, see the announcement here:

http://www.gixen.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1930

... please comment on extending its features there (once you have tried it), if you would like that, just so that we can keep it all in one place.
