The Auction Guild Notes for Thursday 9 Mar 2000
http://www.auctionguild.com for links to Online Auction Industry
Auction Houses and Service Providers.
eBay resolved the feedback forum glitches and slowness. They
claim it was resolved at approx 20:07 PT. At 21:04 PT, Mister
Lister went down and was back up at 05:21 PT 8 Mar.

There is another long post about the upcoming changes to make
eBay a more globally friendly site by implementing the following:
1. English-only items will appear in Listings and Search Results
pages. Items listed on eBay Japan will be those items that are
listed in English. To check out Japanese items, visit eBay Japan.
2. Items listed in countries outside the United States will appear
in the Search Results and Listings pages only if those sellers
specify that they are willing to ship to the United States.
3. Only items listed on eBay in US dollars will appear in Search
Results pages. When you are buying and would like to find items
listed in different currencies that may still be available to
you, you should use International Search at:
4.The Currency format will appear in Listings and Search
Results pages as:
US Dollars will be marked as "$"
Australian Dollars will be marked as "AU$"
British Pounds will be marked as "GBP"
German Marks will be marked as "DM"
Japanese Yen will be marked as "JPY"
5. The Date format will appear as MM-DD in Listings pages. This
date format, MM-DD (ie, Dec-O2) already appears on Item pages.
6. When you list an item for sale, you can specify the countries
you are willing to ship to. These changes will help when looking
for an item to buy, by showing those items offered by sellers
who are willing to participate in international transactions.

eBay will conduct its regularly scheduled maintenance on
Friday morning, 10 March, between 01:00 PT and 05:00 PT.
