The site is experiencing technical difficulties, both in the auction as well as the regular site. IF you get an error message, please refresh your screen- it will probably bring back the page you were viewing, and most of the time will complete the thing you were trying to do (place a bid, sign in, view an item, etc.)
Due to problems, please put in bids for auctions BEFORE the last few minutes,as you do not want to lose ability to put in high bid. Also, if you are high bidder and there are no other bids, it may not allow you to put in another higher bid. If this happens, go to your dashboard and cancel the lower bid-you can then put in the higher bid.
I am so sorry for all of the problems. We are actively working to resolve, and I will have the entire site overhauled before doing another live auction.
