sorry to be the bearer of bad news but its a "feature" from Auctiva please see below.
I also see a large slowdown with the stupid pop-up
and without a broadcast message from them everyone will waste time trying to see how to get ride of it.
Auctiva how about communication that has been asked for for years. Please have some consideration for other peoples time
"Auctiva Rebecca Posted April 09, 2012 09:22 AM Shouldthisbeyours, the "leave feedback" tool on the one-page lister is to gather feedback for our upcoming makeover of the page. It has nothing to do with your eBay listings and won't be attached to your listings. It is only a temporary tool to hear directly from our users and will be removed soon. Thanks!
ed neff Posted April 09, 2012 09:50 AM wow sure would ahve been nice if we knew that it would have elimated all the questions about it "
Interesting that is put there so most people were "clueless" as to what it was and purpose of it. I think in hopes of ditching it I responded but not even sure of that, may have just looked at it and ignored it. If I responded I sure did not put the thought into it that I would have knowing what it was for. I probably responded as though...just another waste of my time and put something.
Auctiva how about some kind of POLL on forums OR something on forums just asking for input???? That is IF input is "really" wanted.
A lot of people do not list daily, weekly, monthly and may not see this at all, but may have very constructive things to say that could contribute to the new page. Also, could send email asking for input as some people only list seasonally and may have things important to say. I know some of the commerce people do not list through ebay all the time and they may not see this at all. I am sure due to their experience they would have some great thoughts on this new page.
It would be nice IF you are going to leave this Please PUT WHAT IT IS FOR????? That it is for new page being worked on? I sure did not realize this until recently announced.
Other food for thought, is sometimes one person could post something on forum and that jogs others to add to it creating a good suggestion made even better. It would also give people opportunity to say, this is GREAT please do it, naw, not as important to me as __??____. You would be able to see what we really feel is important and needed.
Plus, may zip up the forums a bit!
Perhaps this IS, in fact, contributing to the slowness issues that have been reported for quite a few weeks now???? Any chance of that auctiva????
Auctiva please reconsider location of this and at minimum add what it is for. Most people are NOT going to give feedback unless they know WHY they are doing it.
Just my thoughts... placement is not placed where people respond and without identifying WHY person is doing this, most people will ignore this. Knowing WHY will sure make people more willing to help since we know we all have a "wish list" on new page. Not saying all of our wishes will come true, as we are realistic that you can't please all of the people all of the time. (as long as you please me it is A-ok . . HA that part is Joke NOT serious).
RIGHT, Most ARE not going to see on listing page NOR will they see on forums. Something on "log in" page would be nice (to show where person can say do not show this again) if they do not want to see again or participate. And put what it is FOR!! Also, mass email would be great! Just like way bills are sent. Every member at least is informed about it and has choice to participate or not. (if you don't vote, don't complain later).
Auctiva if you are going to do this, and do not want as previously stated by your employees "hurt feelings" (not my words as this is business and feelings have no place in business) I suggest that this be thrown out there in a big way and sweep nothing under the table. Show it, advertise it on f/book, tweets and any other way. Get your members involved. Again realize you can't do it all, but can sure evaluate all.
Other advantage is maybe it will renew interest in forums as well as remind people that auctiva is making changes for all of its members.
This is VERY IMPORTANT for all of us. EVERYONE will be using this NEW LISTING PAGE!! YES, EVERYONE!!
This is time to make voices heard or ignored! This change will probably be for a very long time and frankly I do not want this to turn out to be like the NEW and IMPROVED saved listing page, which I am still having issues with. (i.e. have a love/hate relationship with it, but mostly hate for my uses but won't go there).
Right, there are many that do not know about forums, many that do not explore forums, and then there are A HUGE number that do not come on them anymore at all. I have numerous friends who found the forums generally a waste of time and nothing but frustration and have quit coming to them. I frankly have hit point that they are so inactive I do not participate as much as previously. (which could be a good thing).
Auctiva, please advertise this just same as you would a price increase. . spread the word out there. YES, some people will NOT be interested but give those who may be interested a chance to give their opinions and know what they are giving them for.
Would be wonderful to throw plans out there so we can perhaps give ideas that may enhance it with small tweaks. We are not trying to control auctiva, but are tying as a collective group to make things the most functional they can possibly be. This should increase business for auctiva also. More happy customers = great free advertising. Word of mouth is VERY strong!!
