The Auction Guild Notes for Saturday 11 Mar 2000
http://www.auctionguild.com for links to Online Auction Industry
Auction Houses and Service Providers.
eBay has a new interface for leaving multiple transaction feedback as
an alternative to the existing method. They have fixed the problem
that was including items for which the Reserve Price was not met or
where one of the members was no longer a registered user. Now all
transactions presented to you are auctions for which transactional
feedback hasn't been left yet. For the next few weeks, you
will continue to see items for which non-transactional feedback has
been left until they roll off your list (the eBay system can't match
non-transactional comments with specific items). They also
implemented text changes to the multiple feedback form and error
messages that are generated by the system to make them more clear.
New Method –

eBay had problems with My eBay, Seller Search and Bidder Search
returning inconsistent item results. This started at 15:16 PT 11 Mar,
and was reported resolved at 18:24 PT. If you had auctions ending
during this time, or feel your auctions were materially effected by
this inability to search, email bill-@e... for a refund.

AuctionRover.Com We wrote to AR about the possible effects of
their sale on AuctionRover users. The reply we received assured
us that though they were still working on the details of the
AuctionRover.Com and all its services will be available to its users
in whatever form will benefit the users most. They will keep their
users informed, and want their users to continue to keep AR informed
about user wants and needs. AR feels they will be able to deliver
the new services they already have planned, even more quickly
because of the additional resources. They will also be able to focus
on improving their services, and not have to spend time fund raising.
In addition, they think the heavy traffic generated by GoTo.Com will
funnel traffic to sellers using the AR auction manager, since AR
features those sellers. This should mean more bids for sellers.
