Should I start a new Ebay account?

I've had my ebay account since I was 18 and I'm now 25

Feedback is perfect... except for one item I 'won', when I was 18 and forgot to pay for (I think it was Led Zeppelin LP). And received a well deserved negative feedback rating for. Leaving me with a feedback rating of 97.9%.

I've since matured, relatively I guess. I've changed my ways, no mindless bidding on crap I don't need and I've have a run of almost 50 good transactions. Bought two cars, sold one, about to sell another, two bikes, and bought/sold lots of cool/neat/unique items.

Think I'd be better off starting a new account to erase my 1 negative? Would a feedback rating of like 5 at 100% be better than almost 50 at 97.9%?

No way... one neg feedback over 50 purchases is better than 5 at 100%. IMHO.

I agree, leave it. When looking at feedback I place the highest emphasis on the most recent transactions. One negative so far back that I can't find it, I'd totally disregard. Account age means a lot too, especially combined with the feedback. I see one negative since 1998 compared to none since last month, guess who gets my bid?

Agreed. Seniority over appearance.

You have a low transaction count for one neg to give you such a low score.

I'd start anew.
