Important Notice - System Modification - 2007-11-08


Your eBay password will now be automatically deleted from our system if you have no pending or completed snipes within the last seven days.
We've added this feature as an extra security measure.
We may soon go ahead and modify this feature so that instead of waiting seven days, deletion will take place the same day.
Because of this system update, we recommend that you make sure that Hidbid has your correct eBay information.
You can do this by going to your "Profile" page, scrolling down and then clicking on the "Change" button, and then clicking on the "Check at eBay" button.
If You are shown - "You entered invalid eBay user ID or password", you'll need to enter your correct eBay information and again click the "Check at eBay" to be sure Hidbid has successfully recorded it.
Also, when you're setting up a snipe, you should always click on the "Check at eBay" button shown on the snipe set up page.
Any feedback on this or any other feature here on Hidbid is welcomed and appreciated.

Archived snipe deletion - 2007-10-10


I cleaned up the database recently and mistakenly erased some archived snipes. If you archive your completed snipes, it's possible that I may have erased a couple of yours.
If this is the case, I'm sorry about that and know better for the future.
There were many snipes from the past set up for testing that I wanted to clean up and that's why I edited the information.
It looks as though very few members actually use the archiving feature however, so this has affected very few members.
I'll leave such things to our programmer in the future.

Sniper Execution Problem Fixed - 2007-10-07


We have identified and fixed the problem preventing Snipes from being executed..
eBay made a small change, putting a new limit on an API command that is used by Hidbid, causing Hidbid to exceed the limit allowed.
Hidbid's sniper engine itself doesn't use the eBay API, but it is used to retrieve information from eBay, and because Hidbid could no longer retrieve the necessary information, scheduled Snipes could not be executed.
I hope I explained this accurately, I'm putting the programmer's explanation into my own words.
We have tested snipe execution and it seems to be fine now.
If you have any trouble now or in the future with your scheduled Snipes being executed or with anything else here on Hidbid, let us know and we'll try to take care of it.
Again, we're sorry for the inconvenience or for any missed Snipes that this problem has caused.
