My only complaint about the AH is that people can remove their own auctions even if there are already bids on them. I tend to call the AH my “Primary Profession" as it is my primary source of income. That said, even I have made a few accidental postings that had far too low of a starting bid and/or buyout for the item being posted. Usually I catch it quick, take it down and repost. However, if I am too late and someone has bid on it, then I leave it alone.Why? Because it does not make sense to me that you should be able to take down an item that already has a bid. The only reasons I can think that you would want to do so, if A.) You placed a low starting bid, but you auction is about to expire and is not even close to where you wanted to sell it, B.) You ended up finding someone to buy it outside of the AH (which, frankly, you should not be doing if it is already posted for sale), or C.) You mistakenly posted the wrong amounts on an item.How could this be fixed? Well I would suggest that you should be able to take down an auction at any time if it has no bids at all. Otherwise, you should not be able to take it down. Perhaps there could even be a 15min grace period just after posting where, even if it had a bid, you could still take it down.Perhaps a bit off-topic, but eh...
