1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    I've got a tweed coat up with over 1300 views, 12 watchers and no one has bought....and the kicker, its at $19.99 BIN...how do 12 people watch something and not spend $20?

    Seems like a lot of money given those heels and the leather looks dry.

    To be fair, I rarely watch BiN items (as what's the point, really). And if I do it's generally briefly while I think, so it won't stay long.

    Yeah, I think you're right to not be concerned. I just recently opened a case when I was really just trying to send a question to the seller about shipping. A label was entered into the system within 24 hours, but two weeks later there was no package and still no updates on USPS site.

    Unfortunately for me I don't think he's ever going to send the package. It's now been 3 1/2 weeks since the auction closed, and I've sent three messages to the seller. All of them have gone unanswered. So now I'm rather glad that I have a case opened. Pretty sure I'll win, but I'd rather have had the pants.

    Probably a typical day in Spoo's neighborhood.

    I just had a guy send a lowball offer on a pair of boots using an ended listing as justification. He also informed me that I would never sell a USED pair for my list price (which is currently 20% off a reasonable price). Given that that pair has eight watchers in a week, I'm confident they will sell. I blocked his A$$...

    Like you would actually go... yeah you're right, I'll just give them to you then.
    Why I love my GO/NO GO method with BIN.
    Only time I see them is when they add terms, I screwed up the auction, or they've sent 3 lowball offers and were blocked and emailed me with a fourth lowball offer.

    That, and I'm having a great sales week... I don't need the $5 profit he's offering.
