    We've almost got the new BYC BST system ready for release (as rumored here: https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=247615 )

    This wonderful new system has been in discussion for a LONG time and we've been working on setting it up and programming it for months. Well, it is almost ready for prime time. [​IMG]

    We are giving our faithful GFMs the first access to play (and test) the new system. It has lots of great features that we'll go into when we do an official announcement.

    Please feel free to bid on this test auction. Please only bid in small increments of $1.00 so everyone can have a chance to test it out. You'll receive a PM when you've been outbid! [​IMG]

    If you have any problems or questions please post them here.

    We hope you guys like it!

    Nice addition Rob. This should make a lot of people very happy and be a valuable tool to many others.

    (I don't have to keep the chicken if I win, do I?)

    I LOVE the confirmation key!!!! Good idea!

    My OCD brain just saw I was outbid and ALMOST bid again. It's a test Deb, it's a test.

    It only allowed me to make the minimum bid; I tried to make the bid a bit higher, but it wouldnt let me.
