Default DECEMBER Bid Beware!

Just a heads up about the DEC bid. I don't use Fastbid or BidX and the other day put in my bid for Nov. I bid 53 lines and then 9952 for any secondary line. I only submitted one bid, and there were no issues that I was aware of. I didn't copy down the reference number, but I probably should have.

Today I went in to double check my bid input, and lo and behold VIPS shows that I have put in two bid inputs for Nov. The first one had two default bids, 9980 (highest paying without c/o) and then 9952. I have no idea where this bid input came from, I did NOT input that bid.

So I looked at my second bid input, and although it has all the correct lines, they are in some kind of random order, not the order I had input them. When I go back in to input my bid again the screen shows them in the correct order as I had originally bid them.

I'm not sure what is going on with VIPS, but I am going to re-enter my bid input and make a copy of each screen and the reference number to make sure I don't get hosed. I have a feeling the bids will be pretty messed up this month if everybody is having similar issues.

Anyway, beware of your bid inputs this month!

Thanks.

I just re-entered my bid and printed out the page with the reference number, and it shows them in the proper order this time.

I would recommend that everybody go back and review their Dec bid inputs if you have already put in a bid.

That first bid would be your VIPS Default Bid. It's your personal bid insurance policy, and should only come into play should you fail to enter a monthly bid.

That would be true, but its not what I have for my default bid. That was my first thought. Anyway, it shouldn't show your default bid as a bid input transaction.

By the way, I just checked again, and now it shows two bid inputs, the original, correct bid and the second, identical bid, that I put in this morning.

Something very strange is going on with VIPS.

I thought maybe you put it in at a company terminal. Lately, unless someone signs off of Grid altogether, although you sign in....you get someone else's schedule or inbox. I find that this happens at an outstation where they have a generic grid sign-on and everyone just uses IE.

THanks for the warning. I reviewed and printed my input.
