    Default BWD Reserve Pricing Open for Bidness

    The link to the system is available in the Owners' Lounge in this thread: http://www.thefobl.com/forums/showthread.php?t=17506

    Many, many thanks for Daimyo continuing to support the Honkieware software.

    Did I miss something, or is there a reason why the UFA's are listed along with the RFA's on the Pending Players page?

    Not that I'm comlaining about it, it's just 'different'.

    I think Daimyo just wanted to put them in there in one fell swoop; when the timer goes off for the start of UFA, they'll just pop up in the open column.

    That always seemed like a much requested feature (having the URFA's viewable during RFA) and it was easy to implement so I just went ahead and did it. They all show up as pending now, but when the RFAs move over to open the URFAs will remain pending.

    The only potential issue is that I may need to manually end some RFA auctions. I wish RFA didn't have an official end date, but leftover players just stayed open into URFA until they closed...

    Hopefully we will one day get to the point where we can have RFA and UFA together in one pool...

    Um... I have no idea how all the URFAs moved over to open... It looks like someone bid on a couple players too. I've always said its probably possible to bid during this phase with some tricks, but I had always hoped no one would try anything like that.

    If the person who bid on Janney and Pease would PM me with how they did it it would be appreciated. I'll take the auction down and see who it was and try to figure out what happened.

    This issue should be fixed. The issue was related to putting all the URFA's in... you could have added them to you watchlist and then the bid link would have appeared there. I thought I put in logic last year to reject early bids, but apparently not. Now the bid link will still appear but if you try to bid on a player that is not your own and not open you should get a message saying the auction is not open.

    Is Janney listed as an RFA in the tool? I listed him in my extensions thread. He should have a QO for 1 year.

    Looks like he's in there as such to me, and he's marked as 1 year in my file.

    Not sure on this Shaw; he looks like he's in there, if you're having trouble Daimyo will have to help you out in this case.

    Bump, just reminding everyone we're in BWD, in case they haven't been following.

    Help me here, BWD means the bidding is open, or are we just setting reserves, or what. I see the clock running down, and other guys upping my bids on my players, etc.

    Are we live?
