  2. Bid or Browse? 
    When you first enter an auction, you will be prompted with the Question, "Are you going to bid in the Auction?".  If you have been invited to this auction and you want the auction manager to see you in the list of "possible bidders", then you should respond with "Bid".  Otherwise, if you tap "Browse", you will not be assigned an auction paddle number and the auction host will not know that you have registered.
