For item 200073395046, Gixen claims that I won and cancelled the rest of my group. However, I was actually outbid at two seconds to go.

It would be really good to be able to re-enable cancelled bids, and to update the bid and quantitiy fields.

You are right, this is a known issue I have to fix. If you get "outsniped" (someone else snipes after Gixen with higher bid) Gixen will not check for it.

I am sorry that you lost this bid. However, from a sporting point of view, one has to admit that the winner placed a truly beautiful snipe. I noticed that the winner has a feedback rating of only 18, I'd say it was either beginners luck or more likely, he's got a ringer on the field!

Keep in mind that it is always better to miss a bid than to "win" by paying too much. When someone outbids me, I just tell myself: Hey dude, your a pro, you don't allow yourself to get carried away and overpay for an item. Part of why we snipe is to protect us from our overly-competitive selves!

Best Wishes & Good Luck!
