I know what you mean. I just had to fight a bunch of crazy car model collectors to get my DH something

Both times, there were 2 other bidders that had bid back and forth and gotten the price up.
That's how I win what I want. I open 2 screens at a time, and have my highest bid ready to go, and, when a few seconds are left, I place my bid.
Never lost out, yet.

Thank you so much for asking this. I wondering about the "star" thing too. I thought about changing my screen name on ebay to something with stars in it so I would have a better chance of winning!
