Please excuse me if I’m missing something from the program (which is fantastic) but I do not see this option and I think it would benefit many people to have it:

Ad an ability within JBid to group auctions together. For example, if I highlight three auctions and right click it could be an option that says ‘group’ – then ask for the name the group. For example, say I am bidding on three toasters, I can highlight the three auctions I’ve added, right click and click ‘Add to Group’ and name this group Toasters.

Now, there is an option that when I right click on the ‘Toasters’ Group, it’ll give you an option to ‘Cancel All Other Toaster Group Auctions if One Auction in Group Toaster wins’. The reason for this is simple.

If I add multiple items of the same type, in hopes of winning one, and I accidentally win three because I added three, this is undesired. So by adding the ability to Group the auctions together, then having JBid to automatically cancel the remaining toaster auctions in the group once I win one toaster, I don’t accidentally end up with multiple toasters I don’t need.

I’m sorry if I’m not explaining myself well, but I hope you get the general idea of it!

I call it multisniping although 2.0.1 and 2.1pre2 seem to be having some trouble with it because of how eBay hides the high bidder information in their most recent UI change. :(

I’m working on fixing it, but JBidwatcher’s had multisniping working since December, 2001.

I hope that helps!
