I have used your service a few times and think it is great. Since I am an information junkie, one suggestion I have would be to store a past history of ended auctions in each user's page. This helps me visualize how many auctions I have actually bid on and how valuable the service is to me.
The main reason why this is not possible is performance - Gixen is designed to be able to withstand heavy load... But if I add history sql queries (over huge table(s)), this might negatively impact placing bids in a timely manner... Maybe in the future if I add another server to be used for history.
