You won't see it in the first 24 hours.
After that you have a chance 50% when you log in, so if you don't see it right away, log in / log out couple of times.

As a new user, I am impressed with Gixen and have made a link to it, but cannot find the "Help Gixen" page so I can register my link with you. Could you please make the "Help Gixen" page available somewhere, maybe at the bottom of the list of auctions that I am bidding on?

You're right, I changed my mind on invitation to discuss competition (not because I don't want them mentioned here, rather because that may cause all kinds of different problems). You can still say anything you like, I have no reason (thus far) to censor anything (no links in the forum though), I just don't want to initiate it myself.

As for the 10-simultaneous snipes limitation, you can lift this if you link Gixen from a web page you control. This way you help Gixen more then you possibly could in any other way. And you also help yourself - I'd hate to see anyone paying for sniping when Gixen is around.

I could have sworn I saw a Subject line in the Forum a couple of days ago about un-edited reviews of the competition. Maybe I am mistaken or possibly you decided that this was asking for trouble. Anyway, I had been using another web based sniping service for a couple years. It worked fine for me, had some nice features like thumbnail images, extensive records of past bids & no limit on the number of bids. I sometimes place very low bids on numerous similar items. I get outbid on these most of the time but when I win a bid, it is at a very low price. Anyway, besides the fact that it is free, I really appreciate Gixen's neat, clean, easy to follow layout. The 10 bid limit has not been a problem so far but if it were, I still have a few bucks on deposit with the other service. I've scored on 4 bids now with Gixen. 3 of them were very low bids which is a big improvement on my record. Thank you for the service & GOOD LUCK TO YOU!

It's not cheap not to pay for something you don't have to pay for. It's common sense. Besides, it's not bargain either to pay 1% on big items like a car, and people have won those using Gixen.

I was wondering when someone will finally ask about the name Smile.

There is no big story. Several years ago I was trying to find a domain name that's short and easy to memorize. Gixen is the shortest domain name I could find at the time. There is no meaning to the name, and no known brand name. So it was convenient.

New to Gixen, trying it out for the first time this evening. I probably won't win the auction, but I'm just too damned cheap to pay more than I am willing to.

What is the story behind the name "Gixen"?
