    Default Not really insanity, But a cool auction idea all the same!

    Just click on this auction, and see what happens? i can imagine this idea in 10 years time, your auction will have a sales person to sell your auctions. Knock! Knock!

    I'm really not sure what it is that we are supposed to be looking at. It looks like a normal eBay auction to me, so what am I missing?

    The little annoying wizard from Microsoft Word pops up and talks to you about the seller. It's really slow .. kind of like playing those old RPGs where the text never comes up quick enough.
    Completed 60+ trades here on digital press.

    It's unique, and it made me stay on that auction longer than I would have otherwise ... but if a lot of people start doing it, ouch!

    It was funny at first, i was skipping thru auctions, then i heard a knock, knock (wtf) then i start lookin around to see who the F was knockin lol!!

    Like i said imagine in 10 years time, you'll have your very own sales person, and the way things are going you could probably base it around your own looks as well, it would flip on screen and it would be a mini you! selling your own ebay Sh!t!!

    I am so tired of auctions that are more about advertising other services or products rather than the item listed in the title. How anoying is it that you have to scroll through all that crap to bid on a DK and Mario plush?
    Condoleezza Rice is nice, but I prefer A Roni!

    I propose such auctions be
