The New and Degraded My eBay

Posted on September 10, 2008. Filed under: eBay | Tags: , , |


This blog entry is a follow-up to my earlier post titled eBay is Truly Unbelievable and Has Left me Speechless

On the eBay Community Discussion Board My Ebay section, there are currently 187 individual posts on the topic titled “VOTES AGAINST BETA TEST PARTICIPATION MANDATE”.   Seems more than a few folks are quite upset at being forced into beta test participation.

I did find another post on the My eBay Discussion Board titled The New and Degraded My Ebay and, with the author’s permission, I have included a few of his rather well-written comments here:

1. To be polite, THIS IS CRAP. Always keep in mind WWDUD? (What will dialup users do?) Just editing the ORDER of the sections is taking several SECONDS on 1MB DSL! UNACCEPTABLE!!!

2. As a developer myself, I’m well aware of the need for Beta testing. However, if you consider products such as this beta-worthy, then TAKE ME OFF ANY AND ALL LISTS FOR BETA TESTING. Any software development manager worth his/her salary would regard this product as ALPHA MINUS ONE and would not subject his/her clients to this SLOW travesty and waste of computational resources!

3. PLEASE, DON’T WASTE MY TIME. I’ll gladly leave what you guys call “Beta Testing” to those kids who have to be the ones to have all the new toys first. I’ll wait for something that works. BUT, if these products and services turn out to be as odious (look it up), as your current MyEbay product AND recent policy change announcements have been, then my customers may soon see ‘No Longer a Registered Member’ next to my name in their Feedback comments.
