    Agreed.... have you noticed they constantly like to change and muck it up when its perfectly ok ?

    Shame 'they' dont notice though.

    Is anyone here a Powerseller ?

    If so, they can email eBay for a human (sic) response.

    (Tut... now all the Harrier parts are in with the Ford variety)

      I despair of eBay ever getting the aviation stuff into one, easy-to-access category.

      It's a real ball-ache having to choose which category to put some of my stuff in and, because there are so many categories which might contain aeronautica, it would take a day to trawl thru it all as a bidder. The result is you stand to lose sales and purchases, in equal measure!

      It's a crock of er........and don't get me started on paypal!

          Very frustrating sorting through car bits and pieces to get to what you want. Reminds me of Popham Aerojumble!

            Firstly, thanks TT for the heads up, having been in the lake district for a week, I would have struggled to find where they had put it!

            However, I have to say that this should make life easier for us all - If you have an aircraft part, then put it in aircraft parts (subcategory - easily searchable). If its anything else, put it in Collectables/Transportation/Aeronautica

            It actually reduces the number of categories that one has to search through - makes my life easier!

            Hmm, Ebid - just how long is a company which doesnt charge for its services going to last.... and they have very, very few items compared to Ebay!

              Yes, but Aircraft Parts already existed as a sub-category anyway, within Everything Else>Aviation. There were also sub-categories for >Pilots Gear and >Other Aviation Items, so what's happened to them?

              And besides >Transportation>Aeronautica, much aircraft/aviation related stuff turns up elsewhere.

              Have a wander thru Collectables>Militaria> and all it's many, many sub-categories, and you'll find loads of stuff, including aircraft parts which aren't listed in >Aircraft Parts!

              The trouble is, if you're just surfing for interesting items, rather than searching for a particular piece, it will take you all day to wade thru it all.

              Got to agree about Ebid, though, which is a shame, as Ebay needs some proper competition.

                  Alan,

                  Yes, I know what you mean, but I have now decided that if you want to sell me something, it is your responsibility to list it in the right place! I stopped looking in Militaria, as it was starting to take too long every day.

                  So, now I will look in Aircraft Parts, and Aeronautica, do a generic search on de Havilland, and that will be me. Anything falling outside that wont get bought!!

                  PS That said, I was alerted to a pair of Comet control columns in Sporting Goods, which I picked up for fifty quid...!
