eBay- Has added search to their gallery. There are three ways to
1. Use the search box on any of the gallery listings pages.
2. Select the search within gallery option on the Advanced Search page
3. Select the “gallery items only” filter on your search results.
You will have an option to click on a link (above your search results)
for “gallery items only.”
You can also see all items searched for with gallery items listed as
pictures and non-gallery items listed as text. Click on “All items
including gallery preview” at the top of your search results.
They also have thanks for the input on categories, and a schedule for
the wrap up of the category discussions, all taking place on Wednesday
6 October 11:00 to 12:00 PDT. on the following chat boards:
Music, Computers, Advertising Collectibles, Antiques, Comics, Sports
Personal Shopper developed a problem and was taken down at
02:34 PDT fixed and returned to service at 10:53 ODT
Still no response to email for clarification on Article 7 or request for
expressed written permission to continue to monitor, copy, modify,
create derivative works, and publicly display content from their website
– in other words to continue to publish TAGnotes about eBay and remain
registered member in accordance with their new rules.

Gold's- Nothing new since Vol 1 Number 14 on the announcement
board, but took a good hard look at the new listing form. This appears
to be the most comprehensive and user friendly way to list and
especially relist items in the online auction industry. The form gives
you the ability to use old listings as a template for new ones, do
automatic relists for items with no changes, manual relists for items
with changes, add optional features such as counters and free
auto-relists, and enhanced features such as bold listings. It also has
a place for an auto message sent to your high bidder if the auction ends
with a successful sale. This can save you the work of sending end of
auction notices, as this is done automatically for you. Take a look- New
Relist Form- http://www.goldsauction.com/apps/relistItem.html
