A few of my auction lots, both in the supplies category, for some reason were changed to "inactive" status. One had a bid. I've never had that happen before and thought I should mention it so everyone can check your auctions and make sure none of yours have glitched.

I had a lot of double sales on single items yesterday. Each one had a different lot number, which makes it even more confusing and puts a twist on my sales and the number of lots we it will take for us to reach One Million.

Maybe when the site was down the other day some data was scrambled?

re: Auction glitch - a few lots changed to inactive

The numbers are 962039 and 962035. They said they were inactive, so I made them active and then I had double lots similar to what CapeStampMan mentioned. I deleted the doubles before they had bids. Very odd! They were the last two lots I uploaded on Sunday. Everything is OK now, I just thought you might like to know about this strange glitch.

Thanks!

re: Auction glitch - a few lots changed to inactive

When you are creating an auction lot and you go to upload an image you will note the following warning at the bottom of the page -

"Note:
Do not use the back key to go back to the previous screen and change something on the lot you are posting. Proceed to the Review screen and press the Edit button if you wish to make a change. Pressing the Back key and making a change will result in multiple auction lots created."

What happens is one lot appears in your list of auctions as 'Inactive' and one will post when you press the post key once you have uploaded the image.

Perhaps this is what happened? I have done the same thing myself and have to go into Edit/View files and delete the inactive file. If you change that inactive file to 'active' it will create a duplicate lot.
