I too was working on listing when maintenance started unexpectedly. I was a little disappointed that it began early without warning, but life goes on and I don't get upset too easily...it's just not worth getting worked up over things we cannot control.
Mjjohn said it wiped out 2 hours of his life...Do you really spend 2 hours on a single listing?? I can't imagine spending that much time to list one item...I wouldn't be listing on eBay if it took that long!
Anyway, there are always going to be disappointments in life, but to stress or get upset about things that we can't control doesn't do any good. I move on to things I have some control over and don't worry about the rest. There are pros and cons to everything in this life, as nothing in this life is perfect. It is a decision for everyone to make in every situation as to whether the pros outweigh the cons or not.
Thanks Auctiva for doing a great job! The pros outweigh the cons, or we wouldn't be here!
Thanks for all of the hard work and improvements you have been doing!
