We have a couple site changes we’d like to announce today! We always love to hear what our users have to say so keep those suggestions coming.
First, we’ve changed the way comments are hidden. Now you can permanently hide comments on your own auction and other users won’t be able to click “show comment” to see what was written. The place to do this is in the same location as before, but the results are slightly different. Hopefully auction owners enjoying having more control over the comments on their auctions.
Second, we’ve added a way to perform routine maintenance on the site and give our users notification ahead of time. When we have scheduled maintenance you will see a warning message on the top right of the site that says “Scheduled Maintenance” and you can click this to see details including start and end times. Auctions that end during and 1 hour past this down time will end 1 hour after the end of the scheduled down time. For instance if down time is scheduled for tonight from 9PM to 10PM, auctions ending from 9PM to 11PM will all end at 11PM.
Lastly, we’ve changed the way the search function works when you select your region. Previously, you could select “US” or “Worldwide” where “US” would show all auctions with a specified location in the US and “Worldwide” would show every auction available. These options would not take into account any of the shipping options associated with the auctions. We’ve changed these options to “US” and “Outside US” where each will show auctions that are available in the specified region (shipping to that region or local pick up in that region). For instance if you have selected “US” you will only see auctions that ship to or are available for local pick up in the US and likewise for “Outside US”. We’ll be adding more ways to drill down to specific regions in the near future.
Stay tuned for more updates!
