What are they smokin' at eBay

Now in the road bikes/frames + forks categories, all the sizes have disappeared, and there's no listing on the sidebar of either sizes or makers. Very perturbing!

Do tell how you make them appear, please!

If my spouse were more computer savvy, I'd suspect her of having tinkered with some sort of settings, as a form of bicycle frame population control.

The "My eBay" screen appears to have been remodeled as well.

I think you can toggle between the two formats, at least for now. There should be an "Opt out" link near the top right of the new My EBay that will put you back in the "classic" version. If you want to return to this newer version at a later time, click on the link, also near the top right, that says "Try out the beta!".

I got out of that beta mode as quickly as possible. Obviously not designed by anyone that uses a computer much.

(yes, that was an extremely ironic/sarcastic statement. Just like saying most romance novels are written by people that don't read much)

Why is it that people burn up but buildings burn down?

I think I've figured out what happened. For awhile recently, there was a feature that would let you select multiple sizes (one of the More . . . or Advanced features) at one time and incorporate that into a search. I did that, and saved it. Now when I use that search, the filter doesn't work, and also there are no mfgrs or sizes to choose from anymore. I liked that feature, but it appears to be broken! If I go back to a search starting from zero, then sizes and mfgrs reappear. Who is it here whose sig is "If it ain't broke, fix it until it is"? That should be eBay's motto.

The "in your face" commercial message that stands between you and your Summary page half the time when you login is truly annoying, too.
