Is there a way to make a auction line green if you won the auction ?

Now its like:

Gray - auction stil going
Blue - auction ended

How would want it:
Gray - auction stil going
Blue - auction ended (lost)
Green - auction ended (won)

Btw; thx for this great software !

Welcome to our forums!

I added the following colors for Web version (to match Windows version):
Green -- auction ended and won.
Yellow -- auction is still going, but your bid is too low (outbid).

What's the full current color scheme?

myibay is mainly used for last minute bids - thus yellow is not visible many times.

I suggested within another thread

red: lost
green: won
yellow: open (which is red at the moment), but not just outbid

Could you apply this scheme to the simple display schemes as well? The current red/green works for the win scheme only.

I have the following colors:
Green = won auction.
Yellow = auction is not finished, you got outbid.

Red = auction is scheduled for sniping.

I don't see a reason to put another color for lost auctions. When it's not green -- you did not win it.

I do not see a logic for before bid = lost bid.

However, the major wish is to offer this for all color schemes.

I'm not sure what you mean by "before bid = lost bid".

currently I see red before I placed a bid

And I see red when the auction is finished.

You are right that green might be of major interest - but then why use yellow at all as long as you are outbid? According to your logic red would be good enough.

I feel there are more choices which could be applied here for a better overview.

Many people use myibay to watch for items and red color means what this item is scheduled for sniping, not just watching.

For example, I personally have about 300 items in my list, where 5-10 of them are for sniping only.
When auction was finished and it's still red, then you know it was sniped but you did not win it. This way you can click on the Snipe button and get more information on why you did not win it (your bid was too low, requirements are not met or something else).

max proxy ? Thu Oct 16, 2008 08:48 AM Quote

so if you really want to bid you should be lead bidder going into the last minute with a reasonable amount of proxy bid (your maximum bid ) plus set to snipe the next bid increment from your max proxy bid ? thus insuring another bidder will not have time to process another bid correct ?

You may not be a lead in bidding, but you snipe just needs to be higher (with respect to proxy bidding).
There are other bidders who snipe.
