I'd like to know how we handle the bidding of players in the event of the Cafe being down due to maintenance, server crashes, etc.
The reason why
I'd like to know is not
because the site was down for hours at a time the last few days and I couldn't get in. It's actually
, I should have already won Tiago Splitter - if you go back through the thread, you'll see that I had a bid in on Sep. 21st at 5:48 pm, and hi-chi's next bid didn't come in until Sep. 22nd at 6:38 pm. Maybe I'm doing the math wrong, but isn't that more
than 24 hours?
Now, I know the site was down and all, which is why I didn't cry "foul" at the time - hell, I even kept on bidding for a while there.
Buuuuuuuut...the problem isn't so much that I didn't say anything, as it is NO ONE said anything. Red and I talked about the Cafe being down during the day, and he even mentioned not to worry because [bidding] would be compensated for - he didn't actually say it that way, but that's how I understood it - and I have no problems with that - what's fair is fair.
Having said that, no one has mentioned how time was adjusted, or whether it really made a difference or not. And I can only guess that the site was up hours before
hi-chi made his next bid - meaning he had ample enough time to make his bid, but didn't get in in time.
Sorry hi-chi, this isn't a knock on you. But I need to know where the organization lies here. Because fact of the matter is, I should own Tiago Splitter as the rules are written - unless again, I'm misunderstanding something here.
Please...enlighten me... [EDITs in brackets]
