Okay I'll keep that in mind for the future, but in this case, I won the purse & the wallet! hooray! Gixen is so sweet!

The feature you are looking for is known as a Contingency Group here on Gixen, you have to enable that feature on the Settings page before they become available for setting snipes.

With a Contingency Group the first item that is lost cancels the rest of the snipes in that Contingency Group.

Thank you, Cupid, I'm going to try to set that up now! Yay! Very Happy

I'm trying to figure this out on here. I want a purse and a matching wallet, two separate auctions five minutes apart. I do not want the purse if I do not win the wallet. How do I set that up? Confused

No problem Mark, I forget too. As far as I can remember, distinguishing "outsniped" from "won" is one reason why this time had to be extended - now Gixen waits up to 15 seconds after auction end to make sure it was really won.

This has changed since this post, for number of reasons. I recommend at least one minute between auctions, and prefer two minutes.

So, for someone who isnt used to free sniping ^^ Grouping several bids under the heading 1 for example, means that if you win the item, all the other items following will be cancelled ? But if you dont win it will keep tendering bids on the remaining items until you win one ? Rolling Eyes

This interval is increased to at least 17 seconds now. This is a consequence of added check for "outsnipes".

Now you should be able to group auctions that are at least 10 seconds apart from each other (as opposed to 2-5 minutes that was case up until now). This is still in testing, so, until further notice, use at your own risk.
