Topic: Not all watched items loaded

For german ebay-sites perhaps someone will find this useful:

If you have just 10 items listed in JBidwatcher, it’s just the condiguration in the watched items tab in your ebay-account.
This is where you can set the amount of your watched items per page:

Mein Ebay -> Tab ‘Aktivität’ -> ‘Zusammenfassung’ -> ‘Kaufen’ -> ‘Beobachten’ -> rechts unten erscheinen dann wieder links, wo man die Anzahl der Artikel pro Seite einstellen kann.

It’s not so easy to find, because the default setting doesn’t show the configuration links for the visible articles per page, you just have to set it up by clicking into the ‘watched items’ tab. Sometimes configuring your ebay settings takes more time, than debugging an application in Linux ;-).

Before I forget: I use JBidwatcher 2.1pre4-1010 and it all works fine (for now… ;-) ) Unfortunately i’m unemployed, but I will donate a few bucks to you as soon as possible, because I want that great project to be kept alive! Good Work, Morgan!

I also had the problem in the UK & changed it but it made no difference, then decided to logout of the UK site & login to .com & changed it there too & it works again!! Cheers ;-)

As from today (Friday 27th Feb) JBidWatcher Version 2.0.1 has stopped loading my “Watched” items (actually loaded 5 out of 125 items)! Version 2.beta11 still loads all the auctions. Anybody know what might have changed??

Hoddy

UPDATE – JBidWatcher is only loading my “ACTIVE” items (5). Does not load any other items (133).

2.0.1-825 loads NO items, but when I use 2.0.b11 (older version) it loads all the ‘My Ebay’ items. So I switch back and forth as they seem to use the same database. I’m using Win XP SP3.

Thanks mr_lunch – JBidWatcher now loads all my “Watched” items. I’ve found however that by changing the General Settings to All Buying worked even better as JBidWatcher now loads my “Completed” (Won) items as well!! Success at last. If you are having problems with JBidWatcher loading all your items try this first!!

Topic: Not all watched items loaded

I had the ‘only loading 10 items’ problem so I tried the above — not quite the fix for me.

I’m usually on the .com.au server, so I logged in to the .com (with its hideous beta interface) to change the settings there. As far as I can tell jbidwatcher is getting its watched items from whatever the default myEbay page is set to (generally Summary) rather than the specific Watched Items one. I didn’t seem to be able to get more than 25 to load (the maximum available under Page Options on the default Summary page) when there were 65 active items in the list.

In order to fix this I also went to ‘General Settings’ at the top right, and set ‘- Watching’ as the default page.

That doesn’t read very clearly… I’ll list it:

  • Go to myEbay on http://www.ebay.com (the US one)
  • At the top right of the screen there’s a General settings link. Use it to ’Set your default My eBay page to “- Watching”
  • If it’s not displaying the Watch page, click that link in the left hand menu
  • At the bottom right of the Watch page, increase the number of items per page to suit your taste. 200 ought to do it.

Hi All, I have a workaround which worked for me. I deleted my jbidwatcher folder in preferences on mac osx. This fixed the issue of loading ‘old’ but active watched items and the number of items loaded. Hooray. Basically this rebuilt the DB and my settings were preserved. Cheers Tim

Hi, I too am having problems using version 2.0-800. I am using the Australian ebay but it will only display those items I added to my watch list today – not the active items that were in the list previously. It does not appear to be related to the max of 10 issue discussed previously. Here is a snip from my log..

Hi Morgan, None of the watched items are completed items. They ranged from being completed in 2 hours to 5 days? It seemed to be however all the items I had added to my Ebay watched items this morning. Log starts with “Notify Failed to load all auctions”. Is that any help? Is there any more info I can give you?

Regards Hoddy

Hi Morgan,
Sorry, I didn’t see that the topic (not all Ebay items are being taken into account) has been discussed here.
So, I have the same problem than everybody else, it doesn’t accept more than 7 items for me (even I display 44 in Ebay).
If I try to add the missing one manually, it says “already in the list”!!!
Also each time I do anything in Jbid (open a command, ask to get the Ebay items…) I loose the bid I have set.
Regards

Topic: Not all watched items loaded

Greetings,
@Hoddy – Are any or most of the 30 auctions already completed?

Basically the ‘already in your auction list’ message indicates that there is an entry already containing that listing. I don’t know why it wouldn’t be showing up, though. Turn on debugging and logging, and start JBidwatcher up. It’ll dump a message into the log about how many auctions it found in the database (active/unique/total entries, unique/total auctions); that’s often a useful piece of information. For example, if unique auctions is larger than unique entries, then some number of entries have gotten ‘lost’ someplace.

Topic: Not all watched items loaded

I have the same problem of not all items being loaded using Beta12 and now with release 2. If I revert back to Beta 11 and click “Get My Ebay Items” all my watched items appear! If I then open Version 2 the items still do not appear – if I try and add items manually I get the error “Can not add item xxxxxxxx as it is already in your list” but it is not shown. So the problem seems to be that JBidWatcher is not able to make the items “viewable”. There seems to be no logic why items are or not shown but it’s a serious flaw as I couldn’t “see” over 30 auctions. Version Beta 11 works fine…. Regards Hoddy

Greetings,
Well, it tells me that JBidwatcher is looking at 10 items per page, for example… Unfortunately that’s the default, so it’s not using your settings. Strange idea; if you go to www.ebay.com, and look at your settings there (in My eBay on ebay.com, instead of ebay.co.uk), and make sure the setting is for 100 per page…see if that helps?

A…muppet? I’m not entirely sure…what you mean. Contextually, I’m guessing a non-techie. :)

Does JBidwatcher take a really long time to start up for you? 4,874 items in ‘complete’ is a lot. I’ve made a change in the 2.0beta12 code to better support that sort of thing, but I’m not entirely sure how much it’ll help.

You can get the unreleased, test version of the next version and try it. You can always go back to your previous version if it doesn’t work for you. (Although I’d appreciate a note to that effect! :) )

Topic: Not all watched items loaded

Greetings,
Are you using ebay.com or a non-US eBay site? If you’re using a non-US eBay site, you might need to change your number of watched items shown at a time specifically on the ebay.com site. (I’m not sure, offhand, as I don’t have any non-US accounts; eBay doesn’t allow it.)

Are you using eBay’s new ‘My eBay Beta’? If so, you need to opt out of that.

Try using JBidwatcher 2.0beta12 (the test release of the next version) and see if that helps at all.

For the loading time problem, can you get an idea how many auctions you have in current, completed, selling, etc…? (If you select everything using Ctrl-A, there should be a number at the bottom that tells you how many are in that tab. Go to each tab, and add up the numbers…)

You can delete any error logs you like (well, preferably not the current one) and it won’t affect JBidwatcher at all. It doesn’t read from them on startup, or anything like that.

The core ‘watched items’ issue is usually that your settings on My eBay are to only show 10 at a time, and JBidwatcher just reads the first page of them, or that you have the ‘beta’ enabled on your account.

Sounds like we have a solution to the original problem, thanks!

I changed the “watched items” view (click on “watch” in the “summary” column on the left side of “My eBay” page) to display up to 200 items. When I did that, the problem with jbidwatcher not showing all my watched auctions was instantly fixed (after a refresh of jbidwatcher).

I agree with vumad though, I have about 18 scheduled snipes but the system tray icon says 8. I don’t do multisnipes, so that can’t be it I don’t think. I restarted jbidwatcher too, no help. jbidwatcher successfully sniped auctions on the 29th and 31st though, so I think it is still working ok.

Greetings,
That’s definitely troubling.

Is there any pattern to it? Like it says that there are 9 snipes outstanding, and there are only 9 non-multisnipe snipes listed?

If you shut down JBidwatcher and restart it, does that change anything?

I don’t believe my latest test version will change anything, but you could try it, and see if it does.

I switched over to the new Beta of My eBay, set the items per page to 100 and now everything imports fine.

However, I do now see another strange behaviour – I currently have 73 items in my watch list, all of which have either individual or multiple snipes set. However, when I float my mouse over the JBidWatcher icon in XP’s notification area then I am told that there are only 9 snipes outstanding. Yesterday I also noticed that a snipe that looked to be set-up fine in the main JBidWatcher window did not fire even though the snipe amount was well above the final sale price of the item.

I had the same problem and tried Morgan’s fix (even before I saw it here), and it worked for me. Symptom was that is only captured the first several days of items and nothing from the end of my pages of Watched and Bidding items. Just remember that eBay does not have a global setting for items per page; you have to reset for Bidding, Watching, etc. 2.0Beta 11 Mac OS X 10.4.11

I can confirm this with 2.0 beta 11 and 1.02. I have ebay set to show 100 items. This problem only occurred in the last few days, so clearly ebay has done something recently.

I can confirm the same error happens here, using beta11 too and having more than 40 watching items.
