    Last ebay question, any suggestions of how to attract more people?

    Sorry about this influx of ebay questions, but I have one more.
    So far for my auction, I have a gallery image with subtitle. I have 12 pictures, full sized. Listing in what I believe the proper catagory, and a lot of detail in my description.
    Is there anything else I should think about?

    No reserve pricing. Start bidding at 99 cents.

    Life is about hanging onto what you think is important and finding out what really is important.

    +1, its scary though, but you can always pull your auction until 12 hours before the end time though.

    I find reserves really scare off a lot of potential bidders.

    Yep, no reserve, 99 cents is scary but whenever I've done it I've ended up selling items for what I expected or for more than expected.

    Also, hate to say it but 12 full size pictures could be a problem. A lot of people still have dial-up (like myself) and aren't patient enough for 12 large pictures to load up.
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.

    Well I kept the dial up thing in mind. So rather than have them all on the page, so I have links to individual pictures and one on the page itself. I made the starting price at 99 dollars, set my reserve at 500, which I think is very low. I am almost tempted to make a buy it now. 99 cents and no reserve is too scary....
    The 12 hour pulling does not really work, because theres a good chance it will all go up on the last few minutes. I dont think its worth the risk

    On another note, is it good or bad to pretty up the page? I mean like add backgrounds, different color text, nice graphical layouts, etc. As it is now I have white background, black text, 4 medium sized paragraphs
