If your questions are more general in nature and do not apply to a specific bidding strategy, please read our Hotel FAQ in the Frequently Asked Questions section of the board, as it is very likely that you will find your answer there (please pay particular attention to the opening paragraph of our Hotel FAQ). After you have done that, please post back if your question wasn't answered there.
If you are asking about bidding for a specific hotel or increasing your chances of getting a specific hotel or decreasing your chances of getting a specific hotel, you cannot do that. This is addressed in our Hotel FAQ as well.
If you have posted a failed bid, please insure that it complies with our Posting Guidelines for Failed Bid Postings so that it will not be removed. Posts that do not comply with our Posting Guidelines for Failed Bid Postings are removed on a regular basis because they do not help promote our goal of becoming informed bidders.
