I Won the Auction but Now it Says I Lost? Why Must I Refresh the Page?

I Won the Auction but Now it Says I Lost? Why Must I Refresh the Page?

Basically, what you are seeing on the auction page is outdated information. A forced refresh of the page will show any new activity or up to date information on the auction, for example when a new bid is placed. That is why you need to constantly refresh the page to check the auction for the latest bids. Until you refresh the page, the countdown will continue until the auction ends, as per the close time. Your computer does not close the auction, our server does that, but in order to see the most up-to date-status on the auction or newest bids, you must refresh the page.
