I wish they'd pack up every single programmer and put them on a slow boat to Alcatraz........ :rant:

Just now I logged into ebay and went to my Watch List.
An item had ended and I wanted to delete it but couldn't find the DELETE button....... :confused:
After more than one head scratch I found it........at the TOP of my Watch List rather than at the bottom where it has ALWAYS been....... :rant:

I swear (and I DO too) they are there to piss off people....... :mad:

If you hover your mouse over the item description the phantom delete button appears, then disappears when you move again. They also made it more difficult to hide your past purchases by removing the Archive option. New listings are now not as obvious since they decided to remove the green banner... just leave the damn website alone already Ebay!!!

Sounds like Craig's problems with evilbay just keep cropping up. Evilbay screwed with my sign in, I now have had to reset it 3 times! don't know what they are doing there, but it seems that screw ups are not the norm for them.:(

I noticed that "phantom button" just now after you pointed it out.
Going to ebay the past few months has been something like getting into your car and finding the ignition switch has been moved every time you need to drive....... :rant:

Hey, it ain't the programmers' fault! If the programmers had their way, E-Bay would look the same as it did 5 years ago. "Simple" changes such as moving a button, can be fiendishly difficult to implement.

It's whoever e-bay employs to design the layout that's at fault:D
