    Default Ebay fixes videogame categories (sorta)

    They got rid of those damn select menus that messed up all the autosearches I had set. You can now search within category "Playstation," for instance, as you could a few months ago. Whew.

    The site really is making me dizzy. It changes so freaking much. Lots of the time, links to listings stop working when they move stuff around. Geeze, stop with the changing already!

    what? the 2.0 My eBay is just great, man i hated that old one (maybe you can't understand that because you have broadband), the new one is faster, easier to access and has a better structure AND it shows me a lot more info

    I'll back you up on that. The reminders are nice, too, plus you get the little checkboxes indicating which parts of the process (payment, shipping, feedback) have been or need to be completed. You can also move each module around the way you see fit. It's very cool, I think.

    I like My Ebay 2.0 too. It's a lot easier to keep track of what's left to do for which member (pay, leave feedback, etc.), especially when you have a lot of auctions going on (I just went through a buying spree, so I tested this all the way). It's not perfect, but it does work better than the old My Ebay.

    I had to turn off Gallery images and the second line as well as the "Shipping" column to get it small enough to not confuse me with a freaking barrage of information. Once I got that cleared up I could tell what everything was.

    Man, it's nice looking, but they went overboard. Just glad they let me turn stuff off. I don't need images. I don't need Shipping costs. I don't need the second row. I want it all on one. And so I got it.

    I'm still playing with the Categories though. So far so good. I'd still love to browse by Stystem. Not byGame/Console/Accessory. Damn them for removing it in the first place. I want to click "Nintendo Game Cube" and see all Games, Accessories and Consoles for that system. Not just games. Not just consoles. Not just Accessories. I want to be able to see it all. Is this option just hidden or is it still gone?
