Seems many of the newer auctions I've been to have the same 2 annoying features. I've decided to turn my speakers off while surfing customs on ebay. 1) why have so many been using the "Slide" photos slideshow? With the "old film" effect over the images? Those slidershows are terrible to navigate through, show small images, and if clicked - navigate me to an outside site from Slide (which on occasion prompts pop up ads as well) It's one thing to post links in an auction, but why target on the same page? I wish that if I were to click one of these outside links, a new tab would pop up with that URL. 2) Music? While I admit I am guilty of adding some to prior auctions, I think there is a defined line to what might sound over the top music wise. I've hit several auctions lately which pump terrible foreign sounding techno music through my speakers. While I sometimes appreciate the instant wake-up if I am feeling tired, I don't feel "japanese techno trance mix #8" is going to incline me to bid on a custom Hound figure. 3) Auctiva? WTF is that? it causes the auction to load up much slower than others, and adds tons of useless crap to the auction page. It features other random auction that have nothing to do with the auction I am browsing. 4) Custom auctions with only 2 or 3 pictures (usually small too) ...thanks Satomi for reminding me of that /done ranting.
