Hi! I'm just starting to use Gixen and reading through the forums. A frequent problem that seems to come up is accidentally adding multiple auctions that end too close to each other and subsequently having all of the bids fail and the eBay account locked for 2 or more days. This may have been proposed already, but are there any plans to check if multiple auctions end at or near the same time when we add auctions? I understand it would probably be too much to check if auction times keep changing, but they could at least be checked when added against the user's existing auctions to see if they conflict, and perhaps a warning posted on the add auction page as well?

I should add that I added 2 auctions just now, just to test, that end within a minute of each other, and there was no warning given, nor one posted on the active bids page.

Within a minute is not a problem.

Exactly the same second... when you have exactly the same offset... that is a problem... and then there is already a warning on the snipes page when you add the second snipe... though it appears that some choose to ignore it... and then come here when it turns out badly.

I would definitely second this request.

As I upload a number of snipes each day via csv, for Gixen automatically recognise two, or more, auctions finishing at the same time and dropping one of them (maybe the auction with the closest bid to price).

Although, dropping/suspending both snipes as appose to account lockout would be the lesser of two evils, from my side of the fence at least.
