    if you can retract the bid that no good also poeple could use it to raise the bids and retract to it for the next person before that theymade him raise the bid to let him have it

    the only problem is on the person buying pay more atttention to waht your doing

    when i go pay something to a store i make sure to give the proper amount not my wad of cash

    You aren't thinking critically about it, obviously there would have to be some rules in place which I didn't actually think I needed to outline for people to understand.

    For instance, you can retract a bid within a few minutes of making it which would only be beneficial to a genuine mistake.

    I actually think bid retraction would work if there were a few rules in place.

    a). You can only retract a bid within 2-3 minutes of placing it. This would prevent someone from scaring off other buyers by having a massive bid then taking it away last minute to mess up the sale of the item.

    b). You can't retract a bid after placing multiple bids on an item. This way you couldn't goad another buyer into paying a higher price than they originally would have had through a bid war before retracting your final bid.

    c). The seller only gets a notification of the bid after the retraction period has timed out or their auction has timed out with the bid still active. (To prevent people from trolling by sending a huge bid to either get someone's hopes up or spam their notifications.)

    d). Only one bid can be retracted per day. This rule would be another measure to prevent trolling or discouraging other bidders. ( I doubt anyone who made the mistake of an accidental bid would make the same mistake again in the same day.)

    If someone were to accidentally dump their PED card during a bid war, then they would still be screwed. I would like to say that isn't usually the case though, but I'm not sure honestly. I'm sure these rules could be improved. Just what I came up with.

    how about only keep on your card what you want to bid..
    next up we need rules for selling also..
    Another solution would be to extract peds from card & drag those in the auction dialog

    If all mistakes were rectified in full, no one would have the motivation to avoid mistakes.

    IMHO, a more important question is whether there:

    when they place you can retrack the bid say 2 min well you wont be able to buy anything that less than 2 min

    the best thing they could doo is set up a over limit on item you buy that you could adjust your self

    if it say 100 ped it would only place a bid say 150 ped if you have the over limit set at 150%

    but still poeple would make mistake

    You canīt retract your bids in RL auctions, so why should you be able to do that in a game.

    Sidenote:
    If you bid in an RL auction and not able to pay what you have bid, its a crime!
    You can go to prison for doing that in worst case!

    So he charged you $60 for simply giving back your money when you made a mistake and you got nothing from it? What a scumbag that guy is.
    Read the OP. The $60 was lethal's idea, not the other guy.

    Just accidentally bid on something that I thought had 1 less zero in the markup%. Messaged the person telling them I will give the item back and they can keep 600 ped of the 1600 ped I bid on it. Not looking too good though I think they're going to run with it. I seriously want to die.
