Re: Aqubid / Killie Trader
I agree that error correction would be good, but as you point out there is
no error correction mechanism for anything for the FEL now. Perhaps the
solution is to offer to do error correcting for the killies at aquabid,
rather than 1) setting up a parallel mechanism to duplicate the effort or
2) ignoring the majority who appreciate the speed of a webbased solution.
Mark Barnett who runs aquabid is an AKA member (who else would think to
have a killie section on their site) and I'm sure he'd be amenable to
having a group of volunteers rotate duty to go through twice a week and
correct whatever errors they see. Most auctions last 5 days or so, to
going in twice a week would give whoever it is a look at every auction. If
there were a group of four people doing it, they'd have to look through the
listings twice a month, total. Just a thought.
