I see that they have now halved the number of free auctions you can do from
100 to 50. Bummer for people who people who make a living off selling off
trade me.

Tough

You make a living of it, you pays the cost. Simple.

& don't forget to include you TM earnings in your tax return.

Apparently that is 1,200 people out of 1.2 million subscribers. People have
been complaining of too many listings for crap.......so they have moved to
limit the amount of slow-moving, low-value stuff offered.

You also need to have a 20% sell-through rate in a week. This has always
been the case, though.

Seconded. There was a time when I would browse certain parts of the PC parts
for sale section for a couple hours a week and look for bargains. However,
for the last year or more it's been 95% new parts with a reserve set at
about what I pay for new parts anyway. Relisted ad infinitum. Picking the
*real* non-commercial listings out of that lot has become tedious. I used to
spend a few hours a week browsing the site. I gave that up ages ago, now I
look very rarely, only when I'm looking for something specific.
