1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Open an "Item received not as sent" (or something like that) claim. It's a sort of appeals claim that should cover your losses or at least a good portion of them.

    Edited...see above. This is where seller protection is supposed to kick in. Good luck.

    Thanks. I'm so fucking pissed right now. In all my years as a member of the ebay community, I've never had someone purposely destroy something just to get a refund. But what really upsets me is paypal holding my money for 21 days. Can they legally do that? It totally fucks with my system of buying and selling.

    Half of the people I've talked to via eBay customer service weren't the savviest people in the world, to put it politely. The fact that you had pictures to back up your story and they sided with him is absolutely absurd. I would say that paypal holding any portion of your money beyond what those bags were sold for is questionable, at best, although I'm sure they're very well protected legally.

    The money for the bags was refunded long ago. It's just since my powerseller status was revoked yesterday that they started holding my money.... on all my sales. They say payments that were made yesterday should be available by Nov 9. Are you fucking kidding me? :fu: :fu:

    What, an issue with eBay/PayPal?

    There is absolutely, positively nothing you can do about it, and they don't give a shit about being fair. They put my funds on hold after someone complained about shipping charges that were fully disclosed in the listing. So I switched to my wife's account, and they put her funds on hold (apparently because she hadn't sold enough stuff, whatever that means).

    Really, it's not your money, it belongs to PayPal, All you can do is add the motherfucker to the Black List, move on and remember: It is always, always better, if you can, to sell stuff outside eBay, even if you don't get as much. You can't put a price on aggravation like this.

    That's the main problem I run into. So many dumb questions from idiots because they just don't read the description. It scares me on some of the higher end stuff. I kind of expect that if you're spending that kind of money on an item on eBay then you would want to read through the whole listing.

    Seeing you guys talking about NA on here was wild for me. Haha. I'm in the Detroit area and I was in a nationally touring hardcore band up until a couple years ago.

    Definitely surprised how many punk/HC fans there are in here... Spotted a Hatred Surge profile pic awhile back I think, can't remember who at the moment.
