I think that I'm not the only person that starts to think after things are done, and there are times when you're not sure what you're doing, or you need a pokemon that you have putted to auction, or you're looking for auctions, you see one you like, but you just have bided in another and you're out of money...things like that...so I think that auction house should have more options (?) maybe, sorry for the english.

I think it would only be fair if you could cancel an auction if no one bid on it, and if it was an accidental auction, chances are you'll be fast enough to do that :p I don't support canceling a bid though. What if someone was keeping a close eye on their auction and were excited to get a lot of money from it, and then someone withdrew from it? I would hate it ._.

I think you should only be able to cancel your auction 5 minutes after it's been setup. That should be enough time to realize your mistake/change your mind.

What I think is that (as even suggested before) that we should be able to cancel our such auctions, which have not been bidden up. If someone has already bade up, then no such option should be there to cancel the auction

Well, I don't completely support this idea, just only a bit. I agree with Diana's idea though. 5 minutes should be enough; it's not like someone would randomly set up an auction and go offline immediately for no reason.

I support this idea, but only if you can't change it after five minutes..
Canceling an auction that expires in a few minutes and many people hope to get the pokemon you're selling, that would make the people who bid on it feel bad!

I support it a bit,
we should be able to cancel the trade 5 minutes its set up, but if someone bid on it it cannot be cancelled. that's what I think should happen,

AutumnStar: Wait, what? ._. lol

Anyways, in response to Tina's idea: I've thought about it and came to this conclusion. I think that would be a bad idea and here's why: Let's say somebody meant to set up something in the auction and accidentally set up, say, a shiny with the bid starting at 1 when they meant to do that with a fodder Pokemon. Don't you think people are going to bid on that auction the second it starts up? I would definitely think so.

Yeah I remember when I put my Shiny Espurr accidentally into the AH. I got 3m PD out of it, but it was still an accident. How about you can cancel the auction during the first ... 15% of the duration?

Well...so the 5 minutes of respect time its ok in my opinion...For example it would be good that the Auction only become visible to other people after 5 minutes,so everyone win, and there is right time to think about it or cancel it if it was an accident ^^

Maybe there could be a fee for cancelling?

And maybe there could be a confirmation box before you actually auction up a pokemon.
Cuz sometimes I accidently put in the wrong amount of PD i want, but I can't change it D:

I support. I was just going to make a forum exactly for this idea then saw this :3 But how about the option to edit an auction?

I will support, BUT only if nobody had already bid on it because its unfair if they get excited thinking -Oh yeah! 2 mins to go! Then I get my shiny celebi (or whatever it is)- and then it gets cancelled. Who agrees with me on that?

Even auctions without bids would be problematic because i usually wait till the auction is close to the end before i bid, but i could agree on the 5-minute-rule if there is also a fee

I agree with the idea of a fee and a 5-minute maximum to cancel it.

I support, as someone who accidentally bid 1mil instead of 100k once and also set up the wrong pokemon in AH...I totally support this. It would be nice to fix the human mistakes we make.
