Ian, I know it's been two months, but I've just spent about two hours adding what I could find on ebay (US only). Today was my first official day on my new job which will basically involve waiting around for a visa for few weeks, so this was good to do instead of reading....

+1. This site could use more love islanders.

How come every time I record a sale on a item it always puts me as the seller is there a way it could be changed to buyer?

I can change it manually but the seller might not want their name known. It doesn't really matter whose name is attached to a sale as long as the amount is recorded. It just adds some accountability for fake sales..

All that talk of the database reminds me of one (hopefully simple) improvement request. Can someone change it so that when a search query is entered, pressing ENTER automatically begins the search? Do I sound lazy enough?

Numerous times I've sat there staring at it for a few seconds wondering why nothing was happening. Is there any way to set it up for the system to automatically reject duplicate eBay listing numbers? The way it is now the same listing could be entered an infinite number of times.
