Looks like eBay broke AuctionSieve.

Program returns no auctions on searches.

I also tried sieves last night and it was broken. I would be really nice if Neville would create an android based version of this. He spoke of creating a web based version of this, that would work on both.

No searches here using "new today".

I've been using AS for years but have learned that it can't be depended on. As much as I hate to ask, anyone know of another vendor making similar software operating on a negative-match basis?

This happens from time to time. eBay will make a change that disrupts the software. Nev usually has a beta fix ready shortly thereafter. Auctionsieve is still the best program of its type.

I agree it is the best out there. I would argue that some pretty useful features that could be added are being ignored when it comes to power users like myself. I would be willing to pay for a wider variety of options. I run sieves that gather up to 2000 results per week. It would be nice to be able to select a group of items in the price history to delete rather than having check off items one at a time. Is he interested in having people add those features on for him, by coding it and having him proof it? Have you heard of a program called Hammertap, which I know is now defunct? Auctionsieve has many of the same features, but Hammertap was able to mine data from eBay going as far back as a year. That would be some useful data. Especially when it comes to what I am using it for. Your insights would be great. I don't often see much dialog on this forum. Laughing Question

Looking into it.

Ok, new beta is out.
Let me know if it resolves the issue.

And Michael - I added the ability to shift-click to select multiple items in the Price History!

Wow. Lightning fast. I love it. I was just curious. Are you still working on the web based version? Is there also a way to add a feature that would mine ended auctions?

Thanks ~ Michael

Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Re web version - yes, I'd like to do it but haven't done anything on it yet. (However I've learnt a lot in my real work in terms of tech to make it possible.)

Re ended auctions - the last time I looked, it wasn't possible to retrieve ended items unless you used the special eBay api which involves all sorts of hoop jumping to comply with eBay requirements. I can take another look to see if it's possible without using the api.

Thank-you for another fast reply. Is there a good place to private message you, or is here the best option? I have more thoughts...
