Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Tips and Tricks / Bring back Multisniping (2.5.5)

Two potential work-arounds come to mind… One would be to instead look for evidence that you are not the current high bidder. For example, if the first and last letter of the current high bidder’s user name and their reputation score does not match yours, or if the current bid amount is higher than the snipe amount, then you probably didn’t win.

The second, likely more reliable, idea would be to instead look in the my ebay page and see if the auction shows up in the list of recent purchases. This might fall down for people who purchase many pages of items regularly, but appropriate warnings when creating multisnipes coupled with the ability to disable all of them if the list gets too long to parse would likely do the trick…
