Why did ebay put a "grayed out" effect on the ENDED WISH LIST ITEMS?

I have posted this request/comment on "tell us what you think" and I have called ebay.  I encourage you to do the same...

 

PLEASE REMOVE the "grayed out" effect on the ENDED WISH LIST ITEMS.  It is impossible to view the listings at a glance.  When an item is light in color,  small or very detailed, you cannot see it.  It's like having cataracts or looking thru a fog.  It is very annoying and hurts the eyes.  This is the first thing I look at when signing into ebay.  I check to see what has ended.  I look at this just a much as my active items.  This is definitely a detriment to my experience on ebay.

Not a browser issue.  I have a MAC that uses Safari and a Dell desktop that uses IE and it's that way on both.  

There are postings by others that have the same issue...thanks

The "grayed-out" effect is worse than useless...it is Irritating...like many of ebay's "improvements."

I don't have it. Lucky you, looks like you have been selected to test some sort of beta.:smileytongue: Does anybody keeps count of these ebay "improvements" (that are supposedly requested by customers) ?

It is amazing how Ebay blames the customers for all of these useless so called improvements. Sure, like we're going to be begging for a grayed out effect. :smileyfrustrated:

I HATE this. it hurts the eyes so bad. I use the ended items regularly. they might as well just not let you keep ended items any more because they are useless greyed out.. 

 

I want to turn it off. does anyone have any ideas as to how to get rid of it?

 

I sent some hate mail about it.

I use FIrefox. When I choose to "view in IE tab," the ended items are not "grayed out."

Sorry.  IE tab worked once.  Now I can't duplicate it.  Ended items are "grayed out" again.

If you add the "Fire IE" add-on, and go to the  Fire IE "options", then "IE Options" choose IE 7,  the ended items look great.
