I started an ENS auction on ropsten, but I forgot to bid.
Now the auction date has passed. The name is listed as
> ethRegistrar.entries(web3.sha3('name')) 1
The owner, however, seems to be nobody:
> deedContract.at(ethRegistrar.entries(web3.sha3('name'))).owner(); "0x"
The name is obscure, so I think most likely there was no bids at all as it expired. Either that, or the other bidder(s) forgot to reveal bids before the end.
I tried to finalize it, and got some transaction hash. But it doesn't change anything.
Is the name now lost forever?
