I’ve actually gotten 5 green on my mini mac from ebay,and a ton of yellows.  My account was not suspended or anything like that… Its all how you create the auction.  I made it very clear that i was not selling anything, and told people not to bid. 

I dont like the people that “sell” their link, and people end up bidding on it like it is the actual item… it just leads to negative feedback and poor experiences

Just to let you know, auctions of that nature are against eBay’s TOS are are very often deleted before they end. I do not recommend doing that.

The old owner did not use a stable company for his servers and i was not aware of this when he handed the site over to me. I had admin login and everything, but i could not access ftp or anything like that. He got the hosting from doing an offer or something as a promotion and now the server website is down permanatly. If i were to transfer the domain name, it wouldnt matter because the mySQL databases are all on the server, which needs to be up in order to transfer them. Had i known any of the above i probably would not have even tried to redo the website and would have just let him take all the blame for it going down.

That type of auctions is A.) Annoying B.) Lame & C.) I hate them b/c they are clogging up eBay and making it so much harder to sell anything…

Don’t do it, because you will get your ebay account suspended for sure.  It has happened to someone I know.  and don’t think they won’t find your auction, because they will.

Is it going back up or not? If you took use-less over then you shouldve finished everything before re-starting. But i guess money is more important then the customers
