Cost/benefit analysis for the time wasted?

Live is better than online. My job this year was to make everyone else pay more . That’s harder to do online
Isn't that against the TOS?

many shuls just presell online and I guess auction off whatever wasn't bought
He stated above that he's trying to get more ppl involved. IMHO Less ppl for online ( for reasons stated above ) means less.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

I'd also bid more if my rav served me a light dinner and wine on YK during bidding.

Not necessarily- I find the live auction makes me bid less. And it is so fast its over before I can even think about it.
then the auctioneers got to go slower, tell some jokes etc...

You don’t have to come. You can call in or text a bid as well
