Hey,

Cupid said in this support thread that if you have the following contingency bids setup:

Item 1: wins
Item 2: loses
Item 3: scheduled

Then the bid for item 3 will be cancelled.

Is there any way you could implement a new group for “single contingency bid” please? This would mean that the bid for item 3 would still go ahead if item 1 wins but item 2 loses.

Thanks a lot!
Danny

Yeahhhhhhh… when you insert a link it tells you that h t t p s is blocked for being spam. Changing it to h t t p doesn’t help. Now there’s a nice broken link in my post Razz

Another scenario for “single contingency”:

Item 1: wins
Item 2: wins
Item 3: wins
Item 4: loses
Item 5: bid should still go ahead, since the “single contingency” (the first bid) won

I fixed that for you.

My view (in agreement with you) is that this type of group should, most usefully, be implemented as:

The first auction determines whether all the rest are bid on or not. So, if the first is lost all the rest are cancelled (as now) but if the first is won all the rest are scheduled as if they were no longer part of a group at all.
