Full Version: Ubidwin Auction Glitches

This site recently ran an auction for a Dell Venue7 Tablet. The auction ended with a glitch so the auction was voided, all bids returned, and the item relisted to run 24 minutes later.

The second time, another glitch. Once again, the winner shown on bid history side was different than the one shown as being the winner. The ending price was inflated as well.

Response from Avi Solomon (site admin) was this:
Avi Solomon There was heavy usage on the auction. My best guess is that the software either collapsed because of heavy usage or something else. I will have programmers look into it. First auction I refunded all bids. Second auction I refunded bidpack purchases and gave IDEQ option of refund if she wants.

Screen shot attached shows the result of the second auction.

Something seems off here. Was this auction being manipulated?

I guess this video is gone now. If anyone would like to watch the recording of the first Dell Tablet auction, admin has it downloaded. Just let me know.
I'd like to see what the problem was that caused the auction to be voided.

Keven, I have uploaded the original video that was downloaded to youtube. Here is the link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kYWXRHB1-aE

Sorry about the quality, if I can get it any better, I will replace the upload.
