The website isn't very graphic intensive by design so there aren't many features to turn off.

Thanks to everyone who has supported the site so far, In the last 7 days I've had 350 people register and close to 1000 auctions listed in total so far.

I made a huge update yesterday which includes just over 60 new features and fix's that users have requested.

The is even easier to use than before as a lot of features have now been clarified and I've given users a few more options to list items include bulk loaders and seperate store features.

Give it a try.. You might like it.

I'm still waiting for more NTSC titles to become available. No point in spending a lot of $$$ on PAL, heh. :|

I feel like I'm wasting my time, Whats the point in offering a significantly better targetted service if people don't use it?

The customer service aspect of the site is in a completely different league to whats on offer elsewhere and the site has a wealth of knowledge to back it up and resolve any problems instantainiously.

There is so much wrong with ebay with its average take on all categories and awful customer care but people's complacency gives nothing else a chance.

Unless people start trying the site and help spread the news (you can barely read a topic on the internet without a post containing the word ebay and its incredibly difficult to get people to recognise or acknowledge anything else) then this option won't be available.

Is that a rhetorical statement, or do you really want reasons why you're not bigger than eBay in less than 2 months? :?

Where did I say the site needed to be bigger than something?

Its simply a case of it being given a chance and see people try it out, Unfortunately thats not happening.

Anyway this will be my last post on the topic as its clear its not wanted.

One of my auctions has done particularly well recently:
