Yahoo Messenger for Auction

Postby Aikoprod » Fri Mar 26, 2004 3:49 pm

Anyone use Yahoo messenger to do an auction? Does it work okay? Will they allow 12 people into the chatroom?

Not sure about the specifics of yahoo, but in general, chat room auctions can work well if everyone is organized. They tend to take a while, though... :-)

In any case, be sure to have some default plan in place in case someone's connection goes kaboom (such as continuing via phone).

We've had 16 owners with AOL IM chatroom the past 2 years with no problems.

Auctions take a while -- Took us about 7 hours for 250+ players up for auctioning.

It's the last time I'll be doing an online one -- unless we extend over a 2 or 3 day period.
