I purposely missed this

I purposely missed this auction as scared that people scolded me ‘greedy’. Anyway, personally, I guess it is fair enough to give other people chance for winning.

but I don’t think bar a bidder who has been successful in his/her previous bid will make thing better. In the end, the winning factor also depends on luck.

Auction Random Suggestion

Have not been following the auctions but think kind of quite happening when they were on.

Just a random thought of whether there is a ‘bar for a x number of times’ from a same bidder in the event a bidder has been successful in his/her previous bid?  Am thinking of as some of the forummers are having many KS points, others will have to wait long long in the event that the ‘strong’ ones are keen to bid in every item.
 

Not concerning me but just kpo only.  Maybe the bar has been in place that I am not aware of.

Have fun!

OIC... sianz.. next time

OIC…

Anyway, jedamum has converted her win into a donation for Charmaine, so I guess we ALL win from this Auction!

No…Do thank CKS!

All the parents who do spread the word about the donation and donated out of their own pockets are all very generous. Chief’s dollar-to-dollar matching is also very kind.

I am just being creative and thankful that Chief is willing to accept my crazy idea. 🙂

Thank you.

No lah… I wish we are really that rich, but the fact of the matter is, we are not.  Scrapping the bottom of the barrel we are.

In any case, we are working out something with the Wildlife Reserve of Singapore and, who knows, you might be able to win free tickets to the Jurong Bird Park eventually.

Chief KS,

Convert to cash? So the Bird Park can start  reintroduce as a bidding again?

No... no need to thank me

No… no need to thank me because it’s not me who is being generous… it’s jedamum  .

WOW! Thank You jedamum and

WOW! Thank You jedamum and ChiefKiasu! for your act of kindness

jedamum converts her win into a cash donation to Charmaine!

jedamum has decided to convert her winning of Kiasu Auction #5 into a $180 cash donation to Charmaine!  We will accede to her request, and because of her selfless act, KiasuParents.com will match her donation dollar for dollar into a $360 donation to Charmaine in jedamum’s name.

Thanks, jedamum!

bar

buds, at one point, i was thinking along the same line too. but then concluded that unless the person is a superb contributor like yourself, after a few consequective wins, the KSPoints sure will deplete fast (like me ).

Agree with Chief KS, should

Agree with Chief KS, should not barred repeated winners.

That could be counter-productive

Personally, I don’t think we should discriminate anyone from participating in the Auctions.  Why bar a person from winning as many Auctions as he/she can, as long as he/she has enough KPs to do so?  The key is to get people to contribute more so that the distribution of KPs become more equitable so that the Auctions are more exciting and meaningful.

hahaha... err. how to offer Paris Hilton?!

Hahaha.. depends on how bad you need it.. 

But I guess you can surely get it FOC from hubs with ‘value-added services’ eh ..  

 

Barring from Kiasu Auctions

Chief, any plans to introduce barring repeating winners from Kiasu Auctions anot…

Buy Kiasu Points?

There used to be someone trading her stuff in exchange for Kiasu Points.  Maybe you can try selling your Science Centre membership to some "rich" member for Kiasu Points .

1. Am very happy to see new bidders this round.

2. Think the removal of the list of points is great cos i think i do see someone using some strategy this round if i am not over sensitive.

3. Thank you all once again for this heartpumping event. This is the most adrenelin charged event for me (as compared to the past few).

Looking forward to more future auctions.

Displaying list of KiasuPoint owners

> I thought last time when I click my kiasu points I able to see the top scorer in KS points
> This function is not available?

Yes, it was enabled previously, before the Kiasu Auctions.  We turned it off because we felt that it might discourage members from participating in the Auctions, thinking that they have no chance given all the members who have KPs dripping from their bulging wallets… aka buds.

Maybe have a chart to see

Maybe have a chart to see all members KS points would be great.

Thanks chief!

Missed by how many seconds?

Tried to synchronize the time by minutes. However, can’t estimate by the seconds. Better luck next time.

Jedamum, CONGRATS in winning the bid 🙂

 

CKS, this is EN first time bidding. Adrenaline rushing until I feel my heart stop pumping. Lucky still breathing.

"Wait… I think I owe EN some KPs :)" …….Why?

Nope, she does not get any

Nope, she does not get any "interest" points but I did make 100 KPs of her… hehee. We are a husband & wife tag team leh..

She was just knocking her head on the wall saying that she should have made a valid bid and earn 100 KPs on her own.Ahakz.

Just view the person's profile

Click on the person’s profile button.  His/her KiasuPoints is listed on the same page.

Chief, Sorry agreed that

Chief,

Sorry agreed that 2259hr Jedamum wins. May I know possible to check member’s KS points?

 

buds get "interest" points anot har?

You made 100 KPs off her leh.  Kekeke

Time checks

When we post Time Check, it is to check if the clock has already past the end bid time.  Sorry titank, better luck next time 🙂

Narrow Finish

buds actually told me to try the bidding as my connection was faster. Very generous of her to give me her KPs but I dont think that I would need them. 

Actually I didnt need the pass as I have access to free passes but buds was thinking of presenting it as a gift had we won the auction. She has shortlisted a few deserving parents.

Like a true gentleman, I would give her back all her points & save my $50/-.. Ahahakz..

Congrats jedamum!! it was a narrow finish. buds was right about your super fast connection.

Chief, I thought check time

Chief,

I thought check time is 2259hr? Wow lost many hair liao! 

 

We have to let the clock

We have to let the clock run until it shows after 2259 to determine which is the last bidder at 2259.

jedamum wins!

This is a pretty interesting Auction… we see all kinds of strategies coming in… and jedamum wins with a masterful stroke at the last minute with 1111 KPs!

Wait… I think I owe EN some KPs 🙂

Time Check?

Thought time check close suppose to be 2259hr?

CONGRATS JEDAMUM!

Told ya guys it’s the super fast connection!!!

CONGRATULATIONS, jedamum!

Pheeewiiiit!
