Since my server (HellScream) was/is one of the servers that was down
for a long period of time... What happens to my auction items that i
either bid on / or placed. Does time stand still in WoW and it pretty
much picks up when the servers are back up? Maybe a newbie questions,
but this is the first time I've experienced a long 'maintenance'
period.

More about : downtime

Nothing stops the clock. This can yield some strange results. After
extended downtime, you can often come back to a completely empty AH, and
yet see nothing in your mailbox. Then an hour later, you'll get 20 lines of
spam "YOUR AUCTION HAS SOLD!"...
