Which means that this eBay forum will no longer be populated automatically by listings that fit the parameters I had defined.

 

So the nature of this forum must necessarily change a bit.

Please share any interesting eBay listings you spot and continue to discuss your dealings with sellers who offer slot car stuff there.

Never forget that first place goes to the racer with the MOST laps, not the racer with the FASTEST lap

Did eBay give any reason for cancelling the RSS feeds? I would think they no longer produced the expected economic return or perhaps they simply lost workforce.

What is an RSS Feed? Simply put, an RSS Feed is a program which makes sure readers/users get the freshest data possible. An RSS Feed can both notify readers of new content or, in the case of eBay sales, affect search results so that the newest listings are shown first to potential buyers.Jan 21, 2016
 
I did not know what RSS feed was, so now I know.

Slotblog's eBay forum was mainly built from the RSS feeds, in addition to the few member's posts.
