My recent bid history has several hundred records in it. I recently noticed one item was listed twice, showing an incorrect result (I won the auction):

(item -6727) 3/9/17 07:02:35 AM PST 11.89 3.28 USD 0 ENDED 3/8/17 04:54:34 AM PST 3/8/17 05:45:02 PM PST
(item -6727) 3/9/17 07:02:35 AM PST 13.89 9.11 USD 0 BID UNDER ASKING PRICE
Why did I lose this auction? 3/8/17 05:45:03 PM PST 12/31/69 04:00:00 PM PST

So I randomly checked a few more records and found some others that showed I lost items that I'd actually won. I bid on all of these exclusively via Gixen. I did edit some bids but am not sure if any of the incorrect records were among the revised bids.

I'm reluctant to post details re: the item#, etc. as I'm still actively bidding with this seller, but I'd be glad to provide you the entire table with links to the auctions, etc. for error trapping or monitoring. I'd also be happy keep a record of which bids I edit, and any other actions you think might contribute to the errors. If you'd like to investigate, I'll go through the entire table of bids and ID which ones show correct/incorrect results.

I'm a longtime web Gixen user, and mirror subscriber since about 2013 (when I left BidRobot). I have one eBay account (about 15 yrs).

Do you sometimes use Groups with your snipes?

Since grouped snipes are not Mirrored I'm just wondering whether the duplication of some records relates to them having been Mirrored snipes that had a different outcome on the different servers.. Of course, only one server can actually win an auction the other will always fail in some respect.

Thanks for your reply, Mark. No groups, just individual bids for separate items. It is odd, particularly the ones that report the auction lost when I won the item!
