    Thats right ebay yanked the regional search and replaced it with an items by distance... so now you can't see when an item ends but only by how far it is from you. PLEASE visit the forums at ebay, sign in (with your ebay account) and post post up, we need as many people as possible to hit this post to try getting the regional search back.

    e-Bay did this in an attempt to stop people from bypassing e_bay, and just directly contacting the seller, in order to make the purchase.

    you could still do that but clicking their search feature about distance /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    But when you click by distance the list is closest first, its shown my distance not by time left in auction...
    the old way you click on your area and it showed items ending first... the new way is by distance only and you end up with items #1 ending in 6 days, #2 ending in 20 minutes and #3 ending in 4 days and #4 ending in 6hours... /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif /forums/images/graemlins/screwy.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    I don't use ebay often, and every time I do use it there is something different to learn. Maybe that's why I don't care to use it often /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif
