    Just a reminder that you are able to close your own auction if there are no bids.

    Simply click the "close" link in the lower right side of the main auction info section.

    If there are bids, the auction will need to finish.

    This gives others a chance to get their auction on the main page at the top.

    Often we are seeing auctions spotlighted that have their titles changed to "sold" or "Mods Please CLose"

    By taking your own action promptly, it will be more fair to all.

    Please let me know if I am correct. If you put something up for auction and say it's for 5 days. You have a bid, say, boy this is hard to explain but I'll try. Say you will not take less then $5.00 and someone bids $5.00. You still need to leave it open until the end of the 5 days. Is that right?

    I have seen people close it and say sold but there's still time so I was confused. Thanks for letting me know.

    Question: Can you refuse to sell eggs to an individual or block someone from bidding on eggs you have up for auction?

    Is there a thread for people who have never posted eggs for sale that tells you how to do this? Set up the bid button etc?

    I won an auction and am not sure how to post feedback. I had shipment of eggs delayed after winning so that I would have incubator space, so the listing is gone. Things went well, so I would like to post positive feedback. Help!
