Why bid now when it has 9 days remaining? Most people will probably wait until it's a little closer to ending.

Timer will go to 300 seconds after few more bids.
If you would have read starting post..
EDIT: And timer starts again after every bid.
Not pretty good business to sell 15€ stuff with 15 cents. Of course it will be later ok, but not at start.

Server got blackout, everything working again.

You need to leave it up for more than a few hours if you want people to use it, it's not going to get tons of traffic instantly. I was about to buy some bids, but I refreshed the page and the site was down.

Edit: I understand that you need to get enough bids before the auction ends to profit, but 9 days is ridiculously long, especially when it resets after every bid. Reducing it to 120 seconds when users think they still have a week left to bid is even worse, as you probably just found out. If you're going to bring your site back up you need to keep the timer low enough to attract bidders, but not so low that it's going to run out before you raise enough money to cover your costs. You could probably start it at an hour, then slowly lower it when you get enough bids to pay for the prize. Starting with smaller prizes will also help. If you put that graphics card up for auction with your current traffic you're going to either lose money or lose the interest of the bidders because the timer would have to be extremely high.

Timer was at 1-6 hours at start. I think lack of trust for me is the worst thing atm what prevents people from buying bids.

Let's try again. 2 hours time to buy bids, then auction opens with 120 seconds timer.

EDIT: And yes, I won't close the site anymore. I was just so upset.

I'm confused.
How did he win with .00001 BTC bid, when my bid (as I remember) was 5 times that?

People didn't like that 9 days timer so I did whole new auction with 120 seconds. You would not have even won  Embarrassed
