    some bugs on flippa

    On an auction I'm running on flippa now it shows "Listing Watchers 1"

    Despite having 30-40 watchers yesterday and 758 views now, and the auction is still 8 days to go. That doesn't seem right. Anyone knows if this is some kind of known bug?

    update: it's back to normal now, shows 80 watchers, which seems reasonable. Guess it was a temporary glitch.

    I had the same happen to me last week. Went from 58 watchers down to only 1. Started submitting help tickets to Flippa, but by the time I finished everything had returned to normal. Glad I'm not the only one that noticed it though.

    here is an interesting observation, I noticed some regular sellers on flippa like to publish their number of views and people watching the auction currently in the listing comments. I guess the idea is to show prospective buyers that the auction is quite popular, but wouldn't it achieve the opposite reaction - potential buyers would see how people are involved in the auction and realize they won't be able to get a good deal so decide to pass up on the bidding. What do you think?

    Never seen the tactic but I would consider it rather pointless.
