Please Reduce the Increments for Community Pricing
Please can you reduce the increments for Community Pricing?
I know I'm not the first to request this on the forums, and there is a suggestion of how it can be done here:
It seems that when products have $10 increments, the price falls less often than when products have smaller increments, such as $1, $2 or $5, or when there is only a short time between the the announcement of bids closing and the actual closing date.
The problem is that when increments are large, there is less of an incentive for people to bid, as it seems less likely that the price will fall. When bidding opens, it can be hard to predict what the final price will be, but after a product has reached a peak, it's highly likely that the price will be no more than the price at the peak. Therefore, when a product has reached a certain percentage, the peak price can become close to the highest possible price, allowing much greater room for smaller increments.
This should encourage more people to get on board at the end, increase the availability of resources and cut the price for many users, keeping customers happy.
It seems a simple but effective change. If it's not accepted, please can you give us an idea of why not? Otherwise, it would be good to see this implemented sooner, rather than later, especially with all those older commentary sets about to enter the final phases of bidding.
