    What happened to the "How not to sell on eBay" or whatever it was called thread, that Capnwes started?

    ...not sure what I'm looking at here...

    I see that you changed your eBay username from weso0119 to the-seam-store; any pitfalls / drawbacks to doing that? I've been thinking of making the change, but I like that my username has been on eBay since year 2000 and don't like the "changed identity" thing that eBay shows when folks change their usernames....makes me suspicious.

    Hey guys, this will be my first batch of listings with my new camera, a Canon EOS M, basically a hybrid between a DSLR and a Point and Shoot.

    I'd love to hear what you guys think of this sampling of snaps. They are all untouched.

    One thing is that right now all I have is a fixed focal length lens (22mm) and no digital zoom. I've got an 18-55 on the way, but until then, my feet are my zoom. I think once I get that, I'll be in a lot better shape.

    It does have a setting where it will handle a lot of the technicalities for you, white/color balance, focus, aperture, iso, all that jazz. It has another setting where I'd have to do all that myself, but I haven't learned that stuff yet.

    Thanks in advance!

    Any basic SLR tutorial links are welcome (and I mean really basic).

    the new username icon is only present for like 30 days.

    But beware, you may lose followers you once had! Or saved searches because of the username. It just depends on how you were saved, as a search, as a storefront, or as a user.

    I know this because well, I had Wes' profile saved as a "search" and had to update it after the username change.

    Curious. I'm still showing all 250+ followers. Didn't change my store, unless you are talking about 18 months ago.

    I had you as a saved seller, still there. Also, I changed my userid to nbthreads, didn't realize it was an option until Wes did it.

    Well this is a first for me. Don't feel like it should be allowed for an auction format listing.

    I had you saved as "seller:wes0119" so I may have still shown as a follower, but I had no access to your items until I updated it.

    Well I wanted capnwes when I signed up in 2005, but it was taken. It has been inactive since it was issued. :/
    Finally decided I wanted something that made more sense to people.

    I see. You figure they could make that automatic. Well if my followers are really my followers they will find me.

    ROFL - That's my listing. I was out at a BBQ and i wanted to get the listing in because i knew it was gonna be late by the time i upload the actual pictures. Damm you vultures are fast - Let a brotha eat lol.

    Here is what it looks like now. @NeedMachine you get a 20% discount for the public shaming.
