    @Erorus,

    I noticed that sometimes the item posted time varies within an import cycle. Instead of trying to figure out what you're doing I'll just ask: is the posted time varying because sometimes imports take longer? Or are you estimating the posting time based on auc id battlegroup sequence velocity?

    Best,

    Best,
    I don't think the API gives exact times, it just gives like a Very Long, Long, Medium, Short which is Under 48 hrs, Under 24 hrs, Under 12 Hrs, and Under 6 hrs respectively. TUJ then uses that and what time interval it was found in to guess when it was posted and when it'll expire

    That. It's a very rough estimate. For example, the max auction id at 1:15pm is 128795198, and at 2:25pm it's 128822894. So auction 128802122 was probably posted around 1:32pm.

    Explains what I'm seeing then. That auction ids are sequenced by battlegroup can't make the estimation any easier with respect to accuracy. Hmm, thanks!
