Hi Weblonians, Wow what an incredible final hour for the auction. We were
watching as spectators and counting down the minutes to 12:05 am July13th when
suddenly the auction closed at 12:00am and 29 seconds with the top bid over
$50,000. This was an untimely and unexpected technical glitch that caused the
auction to stop 4 minutes and 31 seconds early and we
apologize. Our Weblo team was online watching the auction and we came
to a quick consensus that the only fair solution is to re-open the auction for
five minutes of bidding at a time and date we will determine tomorrow. This way
all bidders who were hoping to put in the top bid in the last few minutes will
have a fair chance. Please keep an eye on this Latest Developments section
for the date and time for the final five minutes of the auction. You can also
contact Member Support for updates. Again we apologize for the

-The Weblo Team

I hope that next time this kind of "glitch" will not effect any of the auction in future. It has left us all still wondering who is going to be the next Monarch?

Latest development/announcement

Weblo has just announced

There will be a final five minutes of bidding to become the ruler of England on July 17th at 2pm Eastern Standard Time.

So whoever want to bid and become English Monarch, still has a chance to do so.
