The people bidding on it so far are being silly. Things will get
serious in the last 20 minutes of the auction.
I've noticed that about ebay auctions. I now do the same thing.
Why? I just don't get it. When I buy something (let's say some bass
strings to stay on topic) off eBay, I just look around and choose a
seller. I had bad surprises from bad sellers before. Then, I bid the
maximum amount I am willing to pay for those strings. Not the price
I'd like to get them, the maximum amount I am willing to pay,
considering shipping cost and all fees. I usually set my bid to get
the thing at about 80% of what the local store is asking. Then, you
let it run to the end. If there is not a lot of bidders, you will get
it for less than what you bid. If someone bids more than you, you just
don't get it.
I really, really don't understand the logic of people bidding in the
last minute of the auction. Please, explain.
Every bid sends a signal to other bidders. Sometimes that matters. Sometimes
