The price history is now showing a lot of items that have not ended. The watchlist is recapturing items deleted from the price history, and placing them back in the watchlist. This has been a minor annoyance for a while now and is becoming more numerous.

I will, if it happens again. Lately when I clear the price history, it will have items that have not ended yet and I just remove them. Once I clear the price history, some of the items I remove are placed back into the watchlist. Thanks for the new upadate.

Hmmm, that item has ended.
https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/224476309665

It's been relisted.

So I think maybe the problem is that
- AuctionSieve got the original end date
- then the item listing was ended early for some reason
- AuctionSieve did a refresh on the item and found it was ended, so moved it to the price history
- BUT it's still doing its calculations off the old end date and showing that

So it's correct for it to be in the price history - it's just that there's no code to re-interpret the end date. It just keeps using the original end date.

I could write some code to check and update the end date/time.

It's a small problem. Not a big issue. I just never noticed it before. Another thing that happens is ended items, get added to the watch list again for some reason. Another thing I never noticed before. I hope you are doing well and if you could respond to my pm, I would appreciate it. Thanks for the access to this amazing product.

All of these items were added from my watchlist as ending after I cleared the price history and ran new sieves.

Items 2 days and 1 day old that I removed from my price history were added to my watchlist again after clearing them from my price history. Here is a screen shot,

One thought.

In Tools->Options->Watchlist tab

Do you have the options
- Watch clipboard for item numbers
- Automatically add to the watchlist without asking me
both turned on?

I am pretty sure that they have both been checked for a very long time since this is a fairly new occurrence. What does the "Watch clipboard for item numbers" do and why would it add it to the price history? I copy and paste a lot of data. Does this store what I copy and paste somewhere that I am not aware of? The "automatically add to the watchlist without asking me" checkbox seems to do nothing. It would be a great function, but it doesn't seem to work. I have to manually add to my watchlist after every sieve.

Ok, turn off 'Automatically add to the watchlist without asking me'.

Then you should see the behaviour in question - ie whenever you copy an ebay item url or a 12 digit number, AuctionSieve will popup a dialog asking if you want to add it to the watchlist.

If you click yes, AuctionSieve will add it to the Watchlist - and retrieve the item details. Depending on the details it retrieves, it may place it in the Price History if it thinks the item has ended.
