Im very deep into this adoptable thing and DA is a big Platform for this. Thats good, because you get a wide range of variety and Im sure there is something for every taste.
But some Artists, especially popular ones, play very unfair games with their Fans and Customers. They put snipe guards in her auctions as example. I dont know how this works in America or other Countries but here in Europe snipe guards are illegal on auctions. So what, will this be ignored just because Art/Adoptable Auctions are not 'real' Auctions? Or will it be ignored just because... you know, reasons? Or are these Artists just greedy? Because I doubt the snipe guard is there for give 'late' buyers a chance to bid in last minute.
But hold on, there are even cheekier methods. Artists that rise the AB short before the Auction ends. Really, saw this today, just 10 Minutes before, was what the reason for this journal. The AB was 500$ the last days, what really was reasonable for this Adoptable. The highest bid was 400$ for the last few days and didnt change so the Person seemed to win the auction. Today after I was checking the Auction, the AB was raised to 1000$. Holly shit, what!? What bottomless sass is that!? Here in Europe its also illegal to change the TOS of a Auction after they started. So lets imagine I tried to get these 500$ together in the last days, even borrowed Money from other peoples or even worse, I sold some important stuff to get the money, like jewelry or my Xbox or something like that. And now I want to go AB these Baby and the AB was raised the double of the originally amount! What heartless, perky Action is that!? Do such Artists ever reflect themselves or their actions?! Or do they even care about fairness and respect? Sorry, but me for my sake, lost every respect towards such peoples.
