|We have identified and fixed the problem preventing Snipes from being executed..
eBay made a small change, putting a new limit on an API command that is used by Hidbid, causing Hidbid to exceed the limit allowed.
Hidbid's sniper engine itself doesn't use the eBay API, but it is used to retrieve information from eBay, and because Hidbid could no longer retrieve the necessary information, scheduled Snipes could not be executed.
I hope I explained this accurately, I'm putting the programmer's explanation into my own words.
We have tested snipe execution and it seems to be fine now.
If you have any trouble now or in the future with your scheduled Snipes being executed or with anything else here on Hidbid, let us know and we'll try to take care of it.
Again, we're sorry for the inconvenience or for any missed Snipes that this problem has caused.
