Please tell me this problem is only happening to me. For many years I’ve had a very specific search for jazz records. It was quite simple: Records, Jazz, 33 RPM. Typically, there would be 300 or so pages of 50 items each during any given week, 15,000 or so items. This was where I would browse and where I would sort and search. This morning I clicked onto my bookmark and, suddenly, without warning, it was GONE! The search took me directly to the overall records category — 6,400 pages and 320,000 items, most of which I could care less about. I went back several times to try to get my original search back and, nope, no way, it is not there. I went back to the eBay home page and tried to find it and, nope, no way, it was gone — no way to search through the jazz records, or to list the jazz records separately as I always have. I did do a search with the word jazz and it narrowed the list down to 22,000 items, but it included 78s and 45s and all other categories of jazz, and there was no way I felt comfortable that this would have all of the 12-inch jazz records I would have seen under my traditional search. Please tell me that I’m doing something wrong and eBay hasn’t made a monumental error in how it lists jazz records. Please, please, please. If that is not the case, and eBay has really made this change in how it lists jazz records, it could be a disaster to those of us who have come to value eBay as a means to both buy and sell records. It would take away the efficiency of what we do and the fun and the sense of community. What could they possibly be thinking?
