[DEV] Auction Mod/Add-on - 80% DONE - hit a "snag"

Post by SixthSphere »

Auction Mod/Add-On!!! - DEVELOPING NOW - 80% COMPLETE

:D

I know a lot of people, including myself, have been looking for an auction mod to be released... so I'll be releasing within a few weeks, what I like to call, the 24HrAuctionBB Mod!

CURRENT FEATURES AS OF THIS POST:
- Can be installed as an Add-on, or a stand alone program
- Can share user database of your existing forum (optional, if installed as add-on)
- Charge a flat fee via PayPal to post new item (optional)
- Auctions close automatically 24 hours after last bid (snipe proof auctions)
- Totally custom template and graphics

more features will be announced as this thread progresses...

Anyone interested?

Well, now that I've gotten this far with it... and spent many late-nights working on it... I'm not stopping until I'm done and completely satisfied with it.

PROGRAMMING INDUCED INSOMNIA ROCKS! :lol: :lol:

Keep an eye on this post and I'll keep updating with new info until its release date...

Later

perhaps keep an eye on pseudocron... it might come in handy for what you're doing.

Yeah, I downloaded the beta yesterday, but was on limited time last nite and couldn't get a chance to try it out...

Also, I just wanted to kind of correct myself here on something I stated earlier...

The way auctions close now goes like this:
Once a bid is placed, the 24 hour clock starts and if noone else bids the auction ends. BUT if another user bids within the 24 hour period, the 24 hour clock starts over.
Consider the 24 hours as the "Going once... going twice... SOLD!" time

Having it setup up this way also eliminates the possibility of Auction sniping.

we'll see where it goes from here...

Until you get so tired that you get impatient and start screaming at the computer whenever you find a bug and don't feel like looking through your code to fix it :P Never again will I try to code without sleep.

Moved to Beta Dev, as this is not a request.

It would be nice to see some code for this soon ;)
