Just got back from an eBay Town Hall where all the eBay brass were, short CEO and Pres Meg Whitman. This was an opportunity to ask questions to the eBay people live. This was also broadcast on the net. They gave away awards to 5 "Community Hall of Fame" people and the teleprompter failed halfway through, thought that was pretty funny. Some questions and answers:
Canned question from Griff (unofficial head of eBay, does the classes around the country, speeches, etc) about the fees - North American CEO of eBay Bill Cobb was very long winded and really did not say anything
Buy-it-Now fees going up - They are looking into letting the BIN stay around even if someone has put in a bid on an item
Stealing pics and descriptions - Should be down within 24-48 hours, did not happen to the person asking the question and has not happened with me either
Getting a price break for large listers - eBay wants a level playing field, not going to happen anytime soon
TurboLister - It's going to stay around and they are ready to make some big updates on it
They are going to announce the location of the next eBay Live at the ending Gala tonight, will post again after I get back.
