So I just got a call from sedo.com reguarding the perfume.org auction. (guess who was the top bidder ya it was me)
They said they apologize but they are going to have to cancel the auction on perfume.org.
Here is what the dude told me. There was this thread on dnforums where the user posted it and put a Buy it now price. After getting a few offers the user decided to close that Auction and post it on Sedo.
After I posted the Auction someone went to dnforum and since the thread was still live they claimed the BIN (buy it now) price.
Dnforum contacted sedo and had them remove or cancel the auction.
They actually called me 2x to clarify exactly what happened because I think they thought I would post it or something. Imagine that. But guess what I kind of feel like a jackass for having a contest for a domain for sale that now is canceled.
I just thought Sedo was a reputable domain seller where if there was a domain for sale with no reserve… it was actually for sale.
I mean if they will take a auction down just because of some stuff going on at a forum then I am guessing they would for sure take it down if the seller requested which kind of defeats the purpose of a no reserve auction? blah!
Im such a newb at domaining (on this level). I have registered thousands but sold very few on a site like this most of the domains we have sold have been mass quantity .
We will figure out another way to do the contest…. (OR maybe the lowest bidder should win since it sold for 0 on that auction??)
