Why has Ebay changed the layout on the auction pages? Can the traditional page layout be found and used? I don't like the new change.

The new format has been phased-in since before March 2012. I have been complaining about it since March 2012 (under a different User ID). The new format apparently went final on January 3, 2013. The "Include Descriptions" box is on the Advanced Search page but checking "Include Descriptions" does not "stick" - you must check that box every time that you want to "Include Descriptions." This makes it very inconvenient because you must toggle back and forth between the Advanced Search page and the regular search page if you want to use "Include Descriptions." Try contacting eBay support by phone to complain or click on "Tell us what you think" at the bottom of the page. But, I don't think that it will do any good because eBay did not listen to me for 9 months.

Which old layout would you prefer, the one they have used for the past year or so, or the one before that, or the one before that, or the one before that, or the one before that?
Change is the one and only constant in life, get used to it.
