The Auction Guild Notes for Friday 25 Feb 2000
The Online Auction Management Tool report, we hoped to have out by
Mid February has been delayed by several weeks. We hope to have it
ready by mid March, but if we can get it out sooner we will.
eBay has a new way to find your item called Where is an item. You
can find the page in Category Listings and the Gallery where your
item appears. This can be found through the navigation bar at the
top of every page. Click on services, then buying and selling. The
link is available under the manage your item for sale area. Your
item might not appear for several hours because of the time it takes
to complete an indexing cycle. Where is an item link is at:

Category listings viewing had a problem causing slowness from 18:16
to 18:27 PT on 24 Feb.

eBay new advertising policy will apply to all listings running on
1 March. If you have a listing not in compliance that has already
started and will not end prior to 1 March, it might be ended early by
eBay. Here are the latest changes:
eBay permits listings that contain a small, discrete identification
or credit to third parties that provide services or products directly
connected with the particular listing. The credit may only contain
text (HTML font size 3 it currently says font size 2, but will be
corrected on the site tomorrow) OR a logo (88x33 pixels) identifying
or crediting the company offering the product or service. It may not
contain promotional material or other information about the company.
You can use any color or style on your text. You can display the logo
of a company or affiliation as long as the logo is no larger than
88x33 pixels and the company performs an essential function related
to your listing. You can include links to your own web page so long
as you comply with the usual eBay policies on linking to it.
For details and examples of this policy:
