I hope the title is clear enough to show this is different from
most of the "take back the bid" suggestions.
The suggestion is that when you're out bid, you get the option to
cancel that bid amount. This way you get your PD back if you want
it for something else, and it doesn't hurt anything as you can only
use this if you were outbid.
What it would do is give you back the PD that was offered on the
auction, remove the auction from "Auctions you're bidding on", and
you would no longer get notified when the auction ends.
I agree (though I think this has been suggested before?)
I can't math gud, so when I bid higher because someone outbid me, I
have no clue how much I am bidding from my total. Or you know, if I
am outbid past my max, and there is another auction of the same
pokemon, I'd like to have my funds available.
Thankfully, nobody has said this, but just a clarification for the
people who don't notice the difference and are going to choose not
to support due to its similarity to older suggestions: before you
post, please know that as far as I know, the others were rejected
solely on the grounds that confusion could be caused if the top
bidder withdraws and the next bidder doesn't notice, has already
sold a ton of stuff to get back on top when they really didn't need
to do so, etc. This suggestion is therefore different, as
Navuso said, so that argument is invalid (the only reason those
weren't supported was rectified and no longer even applies, so...
how can you say that the same reason applies here?). ^^
I personally give my full support! On some of the longer auctions,
I've spent a fair amount of PD only to be outbid to the point that
I could not hope to get back to the top and it's just annoying to
have to wait a week or more to spend the PD again. ^^
Amazing solution for such auction problems! I support!
Apart from that, those who want to oppose this suggestion mistaking
it as one of those suggested before, I have just ONE request to
them. Please give some time to what Navuso and CarpetMonster said
(actually, the first line of the main post says this), and please
understand the difference between the 2 (if you need help, refer to
