Home Page features:

- Member can see a list of purchases he made.

If the biddings time decreases below 15 seconds the bidding must increase the counter to 15 second again. Target price can be given. If the auction reaches the estimated target price, the biddings doesn't have permission to increase the counter. The 15 seconds is an example, it can be changed in admin page. However if more than 5 users bidded within 2 seconds, then the auction time can be extended in 60 seconds, again, the 5, 2 and 60 is changeable via admin page.
