Today on E. Bay bot

Why are admin allowing the constant 'Today on E. Bay' ads to keep filling up the For Sale bandwidth? This is an auto bot linked to E. Bay that was stopped on DAC and is annoying.

Re: Today on E. Bay bot

Never paid attention to it but after seeing all of their threads... 500 threads with zero replies. Most definitely a bot.

Re: Today on E. Bay bot

I've always wondered that too! And also, that bot only shows really bad models, sometimes even toys. It's totally useless and should be deactivated, in my opinion.

Re: Today on E. Bay bot

To be honest I don't pay a lot of attention to that section. I'll have a word with VS about it.. Thanks.

Re: Today on E. Bay bot

Also just realized they post different sellers. I thought it was an eBay store but apparently not.

Same here. Half of the time it shows strange models/toys from some unknown and obscure Chinese manufacturers and the rest are just overpriced Herpa mainstream OG models. Really useless...

Re: Today on E. Bay bot

hey guys,

This is an automatic RSS Feed of some interesting eBay items (we hope you do not mind that Wings900 is earning a commission when you click on items here and then consequently buy something on eBay)


is what their account bio looks like. They might be an affiliate with Ebay prior our acquisition, I'll follow up with more info once I can get some answers from our team.

The point is: the items are not interesting at all and I bet no one is clicking on the links, let alone buying...

Re: Today on E. Bay bot

Saw that they were banned but had a posting 30 minutes ago. Did they get banned that fast or is the automatic system still making stupid threads?

Also an interesting thing. Says they were last logged in in 2010. NINE YEARS AGO?!

Re: Today on E. Bay bot

It's supposedly an automatic feed, so it bypasses the post system (?)

We're looking into it.. With We, I mean VS.
