Old snipes won't, new snipes should now execute - 2010-10-08

Ok, any snipes that are still pending and were set up before Oct 8th will not execute!!!

However, you could delete them and reschedule, then they should.

Any new snipes set up should be executed by both servers.

Any snipes that were set to execute from about 3:00 pm eastern time Oct 7th to about 12:30 am Oct 8th most likely didn't, as we made the trouble worse during that time.

Again, we're very sorry for the trouble our trouble has caused.

Things should be all well again for all new snipes set up. We monitor the stats but if you have a problem with a snipe, let us know.

**Snipes not executing! - 2010-10-07

As the title says, snipes are not executing, since about 11:45 am through now. We were working on the problem with main server execution and made it worse.

Snipe set up has been disabled but any pending snipes will not execute as least as of right now. There's the possibility of getting this fixed quickly but our coder is not on duty so it will take at least until then which should be sometime Friday afternoon.

We're very sorry for the inconvenience and missed snipes.

Subscribers affected, please send us a message.

We'll update as soon as there's some news.


It looks to me as though all member ebay info has been deleted, preventing the mirror from executing the snipes, but I'm not a coder so we'll see what he thinks. As far as the main server, it all started with a setting change on the server that didn't correct itself when changed back.

Main server trouble - 2010-10-05

Our main server is having trouble today, the mirror is doing most of the bid submitting.

This will cause some of the results emails to be incorrect, but your bids are still being submitted.

Still, the chances of a snipe going 'un-'executed are increased, as there may only be one server instead of 2 submitting your bids (the main server is submitting some, but not many).

We hope to get this taken care of shortly.
