As for the penny auction site, it's really just a streamlined version of what people do on Twitter and Sole Collector. They post some kicks and say, "Make me offers." Except this takes the wait time out of flakers and caters to the impulsive nature of thirsty shoppers. It exploits that competitive streak all degenerate gamblers have.

Personally, I don't like any of those pay for bids auction sites. Sure, there's a chance to end with a great come-up, but I don't have the time or patience to keep getting nickel and dimed for more "bids" while a clock ticks down. But that's my personal take, and I'm not arrogant enough to presume that reflects the whole.

In my eyes, only winners should be charged/billed. The right to bid shouldn't cost anything.

specialk gotta make her dough, so I don't think a membership or introductory fee is out of line.. some real auctions charge you to get in. My boy won a Lexus at a police auction and had to pay $200 to a licensed mechanic to get him in, so that's par for the course.

What there should be, in a more ethical sense, is a running log of how many bids someone's placed on an item -- informing them of what they'd owe if they win. Otherwise, I'm just funding someone else's bank and running the risk of ending the night as a loser. That ain't a good feeling, even if the investments are low versus the value of the prize.

It's cool. It's a legit question. Can't pretend to have all the answers, especially since this business model for penny auction sites is pretty much set.

In my mind, the money really comes from the membership fee -- monthly works best. I understand it might not generate the same bank as charging per bid, but that creates a model for two different types of users. I know it's contrary to what I first suggested, but I know you can't blow up the pay-per-bid format. That's me being an idealist. But with penny auctions already looked at as shady, memberships could buy customer loyalty. (Those are my ideals again.)

Something like Galaxys could be for members only, while those Electrolimes are open for people who wanna pay per bid. Or vice versa. Memberships should increase with a proven track record and longevity, right?

I'm just blowed that the bid button is buggy. I understand that at any time, you can have up to 600 people clicking one single link at the same time.

I really felt that i had some sort of chance, but just blew me when i clicked bid at 2 seconds, and then it went to 0.
