Okay, so what you are saying is whoever won a copy from the auction has the right to claim the number first before anyone else in 5-7? Example. winner of #3 LE gets to request #3 first even if someone who didn't win LE #3 post first.
The NA Edition numbering scheme is separate from everything else. I went back and forth a lot on this, trying to find the best and fairest way, but in the end it looks like the NA Edition is going to have to be its own separate entity. Otherwise, the first thirty would already be reserved, and other than the auction winners, the recipients do not know what number they will receive (still waiting on better labels for those; auction LE holders will be sent new ones as well). Nor did I want to presume that they would all be interested.
I've got a little article to write on the choices I've made concerning editions, but I'll keep it short for now. Basically, though the LE sold first, it is not the main SGP edition of any game. It is something that I did for fun, and because I wanted to. LEs may not accompany all future games, or may come after the other editions, but the NA will be consistent across all games (with some possible exceptions of course; gotta stay creative), and that is what the reservation system will be based on. To reserve based on LE would also not make sense when it came time for the next LE (boxes are done!), since those will be sold and given in various ways. Not all will be offered publicly, and some may not be put up for sale at all.
This may not be the most popular decision, but it is one of the many tough decisions that has gone into the project. My advice: if there is a number you want, or something that you would like to match to an LE, be there at midnight tomorrow.
