Huge changes in eBay feedback

Now sellers will only be able to leave positive feedback.

Feedback Changes The eBay Feedback system was designed to provide a simple, honest, accurate record of member experiences. Focusing on customer service includes doing everything we can to grow customer confidence in our sellers.
* Buyers will only be able to receive positive Feedback. * Positive repeat customer Feedback will count (up to 1 Feedback from the same buyer per week.) * Feedback more than 12-months old won't count towards your Feedback percentage. * When a buyer doesn't respond to the Unpaid Item (UPI) process the negative or neutral Feedback they have left for that transaction will be removed. * When a member is suspended, all their negative and neutral Feedback will be removed. * Buyers must wait 3 days before leaving negative or neutral Feedback for sellers with an established track record, to encourage communication. * All Feedback must be left within 60 days (compared to 90 days today) of listing end to encourage timely Feedback and discourage abuse. * Buyers will be held more accountable when sellers report an unpaid item or commit other policy violations.

So, no longer is it an advantage to maintain separate buying and selling accounts?

Good point, seems to be the case indeed. Note that the changes are not in effect yet.

But posters like you still get negative feedback for continually posting OT here.

Nick,
There are a lot of HSM machine tools purchased via Ebay sales in the USA and Canada. Heck, even the shop owners making chips for a living keep there eye of for deals on parts and other items.

Nick,
I think something got lost in the translation there. Ebay was the pathway for my Series 1 Bridgeport, the Clausing 6903, Troke 12" rotary table and a variety of minor stuff. As much as I have issues with Ebay I doubt I'd have a home shop without them.

No, nothing. I don't have to translate what I read in English. Well, most of the time. The argument that eBay is on-topic here just because you can buy machinery is as defunct as discussing here about white T-shirts because they can be worn in a shop.
It was just an other winy Iggy-posting ...

My Sheldon 15" lathe was an eBay purchase. it took a lot of work to rebuild, but in the end it was a VERY worthwhile purchase, and I never would have found it without eBay. I also got a decent deal on a GREAT Lincoln square-wave TIG 300 on eBay, a great dividing head, and a whole bunch of stuff I can't think of right now.

No kidding, I'm like the poster boy for eBay. Darn near everything in my shop purchased since, say, 1999 has come through eBay, or occasionally a contact I made through an eBay listing!
I have not tried to sell my product through eBay, but have sold off a lot of excess gear through them. I also keep an eye on the dumpster at work, and have sold a bunch of dumpster finds for amazing amounts on eBay.

No matter how bad it is or how much worse it is than it used to be, it's still the only game in town! It may be that it's no longer a place to get rich, but that odd piece of stuff can still be sold there when the local market (e.g., Craigslist) won't move it. And it's still a great source for all kinds of stuff that the local market doesn't offer. Or that you'd pay a lot more for.
