Just curious why staff is allowed to bid for this? Or has that always been a thing, thought this was a chance for a non-staff member to get forum sponsor?

Yeah, doesn't make much sense. The biggest feature is ad removal and I can do that for free with ad blockers. (Shrugs)

I apologize if it's an inconvenience, but this is nothing new. Staff members are more than welcome to bid in these auctions if they choose to do so.

Ah okay, I understand.

Before I spam up the topic, just want to bring one thing to the table. Perhaps make some auctions for non-staff in the future? So those with way less FP$ has a chance? I've noticed a lot of staff have an insane amount of FP$ (not all but quite a few) and a forum I believe is meant for the members. Staff already get additional perks that members do not get (I'm pretty sure) so perhaps have some in the future where staff cannot bid.

Or perhaps even have bids for members below a certain threshold of FP$ (thebrokepersonauction is the ideal name)

Just wanted to throw it out there - andddd I will no longer spam this topic.

Why would you still bid? It's a moot point, the auction is over. :bored:
Well it says it's closed yet the topic is open which can be perceived as a conflict of information especially when no winner was declared by OP so the user might look at it is as he might as well put a bid in spite of what it says because it could have been extended and the op neglected to mention it or he simply forgot to close it or got sidetracked with something else hence why it's not closed nor has a winner been declared. The user in question could see any of these as possible outcomes so it is in his interest to make a bid because if he is wrong and the OP simply didn't lock it and declare a winner due to being sidetracked with something else or simply forgotten then no harm done but if it was extended then his bid then becomes valid and might help him win it.
