1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    Opening bid is not the same as the reserve.

    claybrdr- when there is no reserve, a 2000 starting price is the same thing as far as I can tell. Explain how it isn't. Thanks.

    There is a big difference. You can open for $2000. The reserve can be any amount above that,ie $2000.01 to $ANY SUM. Sensiblly it would be 10-20% above the opening bid. This hopefully stops $5 bids from $1.00 to $2000. It also tells the seller if he is pricing too high by how many people respond to the opening & how far it goes. Say reserve is $2400,it goes to $2250 & stops. He can then relist @ $2000 with a $2200 reserve.

    I'm not familiar with the terms of Gunbroker, but on Ebay there is a difference between setting a starting bid and a reserve price in what it costs to relist the ad if no one buys it.

    Here's an example of an opening bid that is not the reserve price. I emailed the seller and the reserve is $900.

    Obviously, if the ad says "no reserve" than the opening bid is the minimum bid that will be accepted.

    Here's what Gunbroker has to say about it:

    Reserve Prices and Starting Bids
    When you post an auction listing, you can set a Starting Bid and/or a Reserve Price.

    A Starting Bid is the least amount a bidder is allowed to bid in an auction. As the name implies, it is where bidding starts. No bidder can place a bid lower than the Starting Bid. If an auction has a Starting Bid and no Reserve Price, the high bidder on the item will win the item at auction close. Every auction has a Starting Bid, even if the Starting Bid is $.01.

    A Reserve Price is the least amount you will sell the item for. The Reserve Price is kept secret from the bidders. A bidder can place a bid that is lower than the Reserve Price, but the item will not be sold unless bidding meets or exceeds the Reserve Price.

    Reserve Price auctions are very unpopular with bidders. We receive daily complaints about them. We suggest that you set your Starting Bid to the least amount you will take for the item and let the bidding start. If you have priced your item fairly, you are likely to receive a higher price than your Starting Bid.

    If you set a Reserve Price, we strongly suggest that you set a Starting Bid equal to at least 1/2 of the Reserve Price or you will very likely get complaints from bidders that you are wasting their time.
