    Somehow I think I did. I'll check again tomorrow and try to confirm it.

    I've looked.
    You can't.
    MokMonster does not support, condone or agree with anything written in this post.
    Any suggestions to the contrary are purely unintentional.
    (Unless you agreed with it -- then I totally said it)

    What I've noticed is that if you go an hour or so before, or an hours or so after what people think are the best times, you actually do a lot better.

    I find that prices are more consistent when there aren't a bunch of items of the same type/quantity ending together. By that I mean that one or two of them will often slip through at a significantly lower price. With that in mind, when I post items I always make sure that there aren't a bunch of other items also at that same time.

    That is actually one of my favorite aspects of the system. I really like that I can place a max bid for an item that ends when I won't be online but only pay as much as anyone else would have wanted to pay.

    Also, I have found that by placing my max bid from the start I reduce the chance for the last 5 min to recycle. The longer an item sits in the last 5 min, the more it will cost. I was buying a lot of ointments the other day when prices were low and found that if an item went above my max bid (so that it recirculated the 5 min) that it would end at a significantly higher price than the ones that did not. Sometimes as much as 2x a matching item ending at the same time.
