There seems to be a bug in the "Time Left" field of the auction listing. An auction titled: AUCTION: Santana - Abraxas UltraDisc One-Step 2LP 45 RPM Box Set - SEALED just appeared which states the Time Left as "Ended". The next line says "Ending: May 09, 17 4:35am". I was still able to place a bid which is confusing. The bidding window is also confusing having two bid entry fields, the first being "Your bid" (sic) and the second being "Max Bid" when only the Max Bid option is necessary.

Hi corscorpius and thanks for the feedback on the bidding screen. We spent a lot of time debating what to do in that screen. I know some auction sites have just 1 field where you enter your max bid, but I liked the idea of controlling exactly how much your current bid is at time of entering the bid. We may revise these fields later based on feedback and experience.

Right now, if you want to make a single bid of $300 you enter your bid. You can enter a single bid of $300 plus a max bid of $350 and your bid will start right at $300 and auto bid until $350 if others bid against you. Or you can enter just the Max bid and it will start low and bid as needed.

I understand this might be too confusing so we'll keep an eye on this.
