Tip #1: Dear Snipers, you’re free to snipe but as soon as the clock strikes “8pm” on the server all new bids are invalid. People will still be able to post into the auction but the last valid bid is the winner.

Tip #2: Did you know you can automatically be notified when someone posts into a specific auction? Yes, subscribe to the topic down at the bottom of the page and click on the “wrench” icon, then “subscribe to topic”. You’ll be notified every time there’s a new post. Nice for watching a specific item you’re interested in or have already bid on.
