Cant believe no one has said anything yet so i'm going to. I really hope the change in the auction is temporary because it sucks the way it is now. The old auction system worked just fine the way it was.
The change is not something by choice, but part of the plugin. Zombie himself has said that it wasn't intended to be this way, but at the moment we have no way of changing it, so we'll need to make do - at least for now. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Oh ok, I didn't see where anything was said about it being temporary and I did look before I posted. I feel better now haha.
