Reverting to old auction system

Greetings Basilers,

After much fracas I've decided to revert back to the old auction system. It seemed that despite my best intentions people hugely preferred the old method.

After some discussion with Basilers it was decided that it would be better to allow a meso input box and an item dropdown. Ultimately, I came to realize that this was basically what we had, albeit with some missing functionality that people weren't as interested in as I thought they'd be.

Bear with me while I convert the links back. We can revisit updating the auction system to allow for the addition of offering an item in the future.

Thanks for your feedback and patience.

I think the reason most of us prefer the old fashioned way is because
we can use the meso offers as a quick "price check" when we don't know most of the items.
As for the item offering, that would be interesting if the seller had an option to either only accept mesos, only items or both.
But maybe it should be a sub-part to the auctioning system, like an "Item for item TRADING" , different than the main "auctions".

Just a thought/suggestion.
Thanks for all your work Mr Basil !

Yes, i love the old auction system
Suggestions: Having the old system back with a second addition for Trading
like the page will be split in two, where left side is the old system, while the right side is the new system.
and the owner of the item can see both sides a auto win which ever one he would like
thoughts?

Could we have an option to make the auction last forever/not end. I liked that feature.

It was a lot easier to navigate, find things and bid with the old system. It was an interesting to see a new take on it, but in the end most people were just used to the old system.

Yes, I liked the old one better because the feedback system encouraged more trades to happen much quickly.
