Default Auction hack

Geek, you would forever be my hero if you could use your inexplicable skills and create a vB auction system that a) doesn't suck like all the others and b) doesn't require strange intregration methods and c) had a cool geek installer.

I'd certainly pay for such a product.

hehe... Its in the works (very early stages). SImilar technology behind GARS (think a forum for classifieds/auctions so everythings manageable and searchable).

You will see something in the next couple of months (if not possibly sooner)

Its called: GeekBay

Do you have a time frame like will it be 6 months down the road? I am looking at photopost classifieds like ISee on your site....didn't know if that would work.

I kinda like the GARS that you have in mind tho...

I think 6 months is a reasonable estimate

I would LOVE to do this sooner (have had my mind set on it for past year) however I think I better focus on current projects.
To be honest - once devlopment on it starts - I really dont forsee it taking more than 6 weeks to pound out as much of the underlying technology has already been built with GARS.

In the interim - I think ppclassifieds is a decent product (but not without its share of problems).

Microsoft lost their case because the teen's legal name was "Mike Rowe" and, while I forget the wording used in the judgement, the essential item was that the legal name trumped Microsoft's claim. In the case of "GeekBay" versus "eBay" though, unless you can prove that "Bay" is a generic term used for auctions you'd have a tough time convincing a court that "GeekBay" isn't an intentional derivative of the "eBay" name.

There's always "GeekBid" and "GeekBlock" (as in "Auction Block"). I kinda' like GeekBid.
