Old Dad, thanks for your input. I assumed that was probably the case. I just didn’t know for sure.
ALso, I should note that eBay For Business had no clue what was going on either. I’m the one who realized that it was an auto-renewal failure. But since I saw that a couple of mine had re-appeared by that time, I told them I’d wait it out until the next day (today) and get back to them if it’s still a problem.
I was having this very same issue over the past two days. I was watching as my listings dropped off, losing a total of almost 80. What I figured out is that as Good-til-cancelled listings were timing out, they weren’t being auto-renewed as they should. I ended up contacting Ebay For Business on Facebook and they said they couldn’t see anything on their end. They also put in a ticket to the tech dept, but said it could be a week or more before they heard back.
As you might imagine, I was going into low-level panic mode. I’d seen this happen to my listings before. But that time it was only a few and they reappeared before I could figure out what was happening.
Long story short: sometimes listings get caught up in the “renew queue” (my name for it) and take a while to appear again. Luckily, through out day yesterday, my missing listings were reappearing a little at a time, VERY SLOWLY throughout the day and into this morning. Now they are all back and my listings are once again renewing as they should, as soon as they time out.
I hope this puts your mind at ease. It will make you nervous as hell, but they will re-populate in time. Sometimes it just takes a ridiculously long time to do so. And no one seems to know why.03/14/2021 at 11:09 pm in reply to: Adorable Little Japanese Ceramic Holder – But what is it for?! #86739
I can’t find your exact design, but if you scroll through you’ll see lots that are pretty similar to yours:

I believe it’s a lipstick holder, like this: https://www.etsy.com/listing/627213432/vintage-ceramic-lipstick-organiser?gpla=1&gao=1&&utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=shopping_us_c-bags_and_purses-cosmetic_and_toiletry_storage-makeup_organizers&utm_custom1=_k_CjwKCAiAhbeCBhBcEiwAkv2cY-NX7VMhPCnPFhjfl_OycD8TVhPnm_3GSX1gBWLNX6cOeadwOoecpxoCiVcQAvD_BwE_k_&utm_content=go_1843970605_72372957480_346364217282_pla-353199815699_m__627213432_107474249&utm_custom2=1843970605&gclid=CjwKCAiAhbeCBhBcEiwAkv2cY-NX7VMhPCnPFhjfl_OycD8TVhPnm_3GSX1gBWLNX6cOeadwOoecpxoCiVcQAvD_BwE01/05/2021 at 2:23 am in reply to: Miniature Serving Set with Coffee pot, tureen, vegetable pot, pitcher #84921
I listed a similar set a few days ago. (But yours is cooler than mine.) The bottom of my tray is stamped with the brand name and “Occupied Japan”, which narrow the date of mine to within a few years. My listing is titled “Hkato 7-pc Miniature Porcelain Tea Set Red Pink Flowers Occupied Japan”
I don’t know if that helps at all.

The pictures aren’t working.
Then I think I agree with you, Frog.11/16/2020 at 9:16 pm in reply to: Got another Jewlery Question – What Would You call These? #83489
They may be key rings, as some have said. But they sure look exactly like the ones sold and used as nose rings, naval rings, nipple rings, etc…
@Antique Frog – That’s true for large pieces such as dining bowls, but small items like this can easily be formed with a doming block/punch set, like this one: https://www.amazon.com/Dapping-Doming-Jewelry-Making-Forming/dp/B08HPT9BS9/ref=asc_df_B08HPT9BS9/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=475811987013&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=11676050273000130099&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=m&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9012164&hvtargid=pla-1017090753568&psc=111/14/2020 at 10:07 am in reply to: Listing Photos Reverting To Original Pre-Edited Condition & More. #83417
@Sharyn – Oh yeah, I experienced the draft copy problem too. I’d go to create copies of a draft and it wouldn’t work. Then later on I discover a whole bunch of similar drafts, because I’d tried several times but kept getting errors.
I don’t know why eBay won’t just give us a “create similar draft” button – like the “sell similar” button. It would make the process a lot less tedious (and less confusing, because it’s not always easy to find the correct duplicate draft when you have a page full of drafts in progress).11/14/2020 at 10:01 am in reply to: Listing Photos Reverting To Original Pre-Edited Condition & More. #83416
@debitendcredits – I’ve contacted them through Facebook. In these cases, I know that I didn’t check the boxes (even accidentally). They are listings that were up for months before the fees ever started kicking in. And I hadn’t edited or otherwise visited the listings during that time.
I only mentioned that issue at all to pile onto my observation of my listings being randomly altered by whatever glitch is infecting eBay “this hour”. It seems like there’s always some glitch or two crawling around the site at any given moment. ANd you never know what’s or who is going to be affected.
What irritates me is that on the page where you leave feedback for others, eBay continues to show every cancelled order and every unpaid item “transaction”. Even if you click the “X” to remove the item from the list, they always come back. And if you go through and dismiss every one, the page will automatically refresh and, once again, they are all back. They will not go away. They used to drop off after a month or so. But now they seem to hang around for months on end.
I don’t understand why we can’t dismiss items and have them stay gone. Why would I want to leave positive feedback (the ONLY kind a seller is permitted to leave) for an deadbeat “buyer”? It’s really annoying and makes it hard to be able to tell which ones are the legitimate transactions (the ones I DO want to leave feedback for).
Also, you’re missing one; there should be 5. Poker dice also come in 8-sided dice (and maybe others as well).
Yes, they are poker dice. You roll all 5, keep the ones you like and re-roll the remainder. The object is to try to get the best poker hand.
