This is a huge issue! The secondary page is frustrating and not user friendly, but now we cannot even manage things. I'm done leaving feedback as a buyer. It's just too much hassle and I will never remember I need to go find this other page to do so. Ebay is very odd. No longer my friend and no longer has much value. If they lose the users they will go out of business.

DID THIS JUST START ON THE 9TH? I SWEAR IT WAS THERE ON THE 8TH.
I JUST SPENT QUITE A BIT OF TIME THINKING I CHANGED A SETTING, BUT EBAY DECIDED TO JUST ELIMINATE IT. I AGREE WITH EVERYBODY'S COMMENTS. MAYBE AFTER THEY MAKE THEIR CHANGES ON THE 10TH THIS ISSUE WILL BE ADJUSTED. AMAZON IS GETTING BETTER TO USE THAN EBAY.

luckily, rolled back. for now.

but just awful. awful awful awful.

of course, i wish to delete items won after the purchases are completed. i delete them after i have left feedback. that is the flow i've used for at least five years. it makes sense.

i bitched & moaned when My eBay 2.0 was rolled out. But within a year, they ironed out most of the bugs, which meant they gradually made some parts more like what they'd replaced.

they continually design the place for the casual user. i am not a casual user. i buy a lot of comics here. now as many as some, but still a lot.

these changes blow.

Glenda, this is probably just one of the dumber things eBay has done recently. Let me know if you agree.

Unhappy with your new eBad "My eBay", so am I. Reading the board, I have noticed a few people with the same displeasure. We all need to politely express
to eBay that we are worried that people within their organization, have moved
up the ladder, and made decisions that have taken us backwards. But what is
more concerning and disturbing, someone approved it. I would like to take the same drugs that eBay management gets because I do not see, or can hallucinate, as to how their recent changes are an act of wisdom. Us eBayers need to walk away from eBay for some time (no buying, no selling, no watching, no surfing), and let their profits drops. However, based upon their superior wisdom, they will conclude the problem is us and not them.

I'm not saying this is true, but It is possible that eBay is doing this so states can enforce payment of sales tax for online purchases. I know that in my state this year, there was a new question on the tax forms about the value of your online purchases. I was able to go to other sites and get correct values for purchases I made so I could enter it on my taxes, but I wasn't able to get any valid information from eBay. I really haven't purchased much at all on eBay in the last several years anyway, so it didn't matter too much for me.

Once again FEEbay makes a change. I agree with everyone who stated that they want to delete items from the history after feedback is made. Why is FEEbay forcing us to not manage OUR purchases. When I buy something at the store and unpack it, I throw away the bag and the receipt. FEEbay wants us to keep these things.

Another way corporate America is controlling us. GRRR!

Our family shares the account but I am the primary user. Sometimes I buy things that are supposed to be a surprise (Birthdays, Christmas, etc.) and delete them from the history as soon as I recieve them to help avoid the surprise being discovered. I will now make thes type purchases elsewhere since the ability to delete has been taken away!

I'd like to add my 2 cents -- I also use the "delete" feature to remove items that I have received. I can no longer do that.

eBay has gotten progressively less fun over the past 5 or 6 years, starting with the elimination of the visibility of other bidders. As a buyer, I can also tell that fewer people are using eBay -- a lot less for sale as compared to 5 years ago.

I also am an eBay affiliate, and the people actually buying items that I promote for eBay has dropped over the past year. Too bad their VPs obviously don't read these boards, maybe they'd know why.

I also agree. I like to delete items once feedback is left by both parties. I don't like this that this feature is missing.

An excellent question. And on the amazingly slim chance that someone actually in charge of something important @ Ebay reads these forums.......
I would like to say:
Please CHANGE IT BACK!!!

I'm a fairly regular Ebayer. Where the heck was the "We're changing things, let us know what you think!" feedback form?

Delete button is gone! How stupid is that? Sometimes I let my kids buy from my account now I have to worry about what they see there. What if I buy b-day or Christmas gifts? Now I have to supervise 20+ yr olds so they don't accidentally see what I have purchased? EBAY YOU BLEW I AGAIN!
