    There's no end date, just a time, which lead me (and I assume others) to believe it ended tonight?

    Since there was no date, only a time, you should be able to edit/add a note and declare it officially ends on Sunday.
    It's just a typo. From my experience on this site, stackers are generally fairly forgiving of a genuine mistake.

    Good morning guys,

    So it's a new day and my initial disappointment of stuffing the auction has left me. I can't run the auction through to Sunday, incase anyone thought it was only a short few hour auction, let's leave it at that.

    It just doesn't feel right to continue...

    So I declare FP the winner officially

    Honest mistake and you shouldnt feel you have to be taken advantage of for it.
    A decent person would forgive the error

    I appreciate your comments Stoic and FP did forgive the error and was very polite and understanding, however this morning i thought about it and the auction felt tarnished so the only way to professionally rectify the situation for me was to just end the auction, in future i will be more diligent to check my wording for any auction and make sure i actually include a date...
    This was purely my decision because my reputation and the relationships i build here on SS are more important to me than dollar amount i was hoping for in the auction...

    Thankyou to everybody's input and happy stacking

    For your information SP, I did not insist on claiming this auction. I told ST he was welcome to relist. He will confirm this for you.
    Don't try and tarnish my reputation on here with your comments.
    Thank you.

    Its aim was advice for someone who made a rookie error but you are pretentious enough to think its about you?
    Your problem if you took my comment personally..your name wasnt mentioned nor was it even directed to/at you.
    The party it was directed to already responded hours ago so why you feel the need to carry on in public like a pork chop and crying foul beats me.
    Dont try to make something from nothing.
