@helpingly: I agree with you, that's exactly what I do too lol. I normally come here and see new maple related posts knowing it's most likely gekkegerrit, then scroll down to chat section, nothing new, that's basil for the day. I spend about 10 seconds here per day.
@figherdoken I don't think you can even bid on items here anymore.
@fighterdoken: As @capnmurica has stated, the auction system has been removed from the site. People stopped using it and Maple implemented its own system so there really wasn't much use for it. I do miss it though, I had a very high satisfaction rating .
