Notes:
My bid on #3 $10 was outbid for $15 by yotamlifshitz
so I'm bidding on #2 $15, assuming I'm outbidding evilantal's $10
and also assuming #1 highest bid is $30 by PALU

You don't need to say you are bidding on #1, #2 etc.. As long as your bid is higher than any of the ones listed, you will be put against the right "level".
The trick is to realize there is no spoon. That's when you'll know you have been truly swindled.

Sorry, I did check but I missed it.

Question: I thought bids started at 5, incremented by 5 until 100, then increment by 10. Are bids allowed to exceed the start and increment amounts?

Those are minimum bids.

The first post does not make that clear, IMO:
Luftrum wrote:Bidding is done by replying to this thread with lowest bid starting at $5 and bids raised in 5’s too (no $1 bids sorry) and when products reaches $100, then bids are to be raised in 10’s.

The original instructions don't specify that these are minimums at all. I just wanted to clarify.

And if someone wants to bid $1,000,000 on something.. because charity .. you want that person to have to input 99,919 bids?

someone's head is going to explode when some of us outbid ourselves at the end.

I agree that it's not 100% clear. Please, if someone needs help - give help. Thanks JYelton for bidding in the charity :tu:
