Thanks I got tired of the old Avatar so got this one for now. I too figure that the counter thingie is a lot screwed up - I've seen the dashes also in some of my auctions. Also the counter changes sometimes after an auction closes - before it closes it may say 58 views and the counter shows at the top and then under the bottom pix. After a sale closes the counter is now only at the bottom of the pix and is WAY off. I was thinking of going back to andale as they have gone back to free counters so my concerns a few months ago are gone. Maybe I should look at sellathon - taking a hint from your feeling. I still question the counter concept actually. I think it is a vanity deal most of the time - like "ha ha I got 100 views and you only got 12". But I have used the counter to see if maybe my price was too high 'cause lots of views an no bids. Oh well.
