I disagree that 2 seconds would be better. It would increase the number of missed bids (due to network latency/slow eBay servers at peak times etc. etc. AND increase the number of bids that don't win due to the eBay increment rules... 6 seconds is (in my experience) not enough time for a manual sniper to react, any bids made in the last 6 seconds were coming anyway so reducing to 2 seconds would not improve things, as has been said many times before its not the last bid that wins its the highest acceptable bid before the auction ends.

'put Back the no of bids & the last bid' Is not clear enough (to me) what you mean... Are you suggesting a field that tells you how many snipes you have set up?.. and the end time of the last auction that you have a snipe set up for... These are my best guess.

My guess is that "put Back the no of bids & the last bid" means "display the number of bids and the current bid".

Having snipe time less than 5 seconds is kind of useless and will not improve anything anyway, of course.

Yes could be right about the number of bids... but doesn't it already display the current bid?...

Perhaps they mean display the current bid for more items then?

I hope they come back and explain.

Well... Kind of.. Let's say it's not alway "current".
Most people expect it to be in realtime. Seems like they don't know that all sniper services are not in sync with eBay, but rather getting this information by parsing web pages and that simply can not be in realtime, but few times per day or even less.
