EveryAuction (Scripts) Publisher's description
EveryAuction is a well-known free Perl online auction application.
Online auctions weren't overly common at the time, but quickly gained popularity in the coming years.
Around the time when EveryAuction was released, ActionWeb changed their name to eBay, making the idea of online auctions commonplace. Many of EveryAuction's initial features such as sniper protection and "dutch" auctions (an add-on) were responses to features found in early internet auction sites like OnSale and Haggle Online.
As online auctions became more commonplace on the Internet, the EveryAuction forums were buzzing with add-ons, new ideas for the software, and friendly support, all the result of an active community of users and developers.
Despite no paid advertising or commercial sales, EveryAuction became one of the most popular scripts on many download sites. The software was published in a number of books and magazine articles, and the number of downloads exceeded all expectations (estimates in excess of 200,000). Some of the more active add-on developers built entire businesses around installing and customizing EveryAuction for clients.
