    Does The Bench delete members that havent been active in the last 5 years or that have never posted ect

    Also doesn that number include banned members?

    There's multiple references to a link so TheBench gets credit for bids placed on ebay but I can't find the actual link. Is it a secret link ? Seems like it should be more prominent, or at least easily findable. I found an old bookmark, is this the link ?.... http://www.ebay.com/?clk_rvr_id=320031219517

    Does TheBench actually receive a nickel for every bid placed ? If not, what do "we" get ?

    At a nickel a bid, for any and every bid (multiple bids on same item?), that could be A LOT of $$$. Shoot, could probably start a corporation and sell shares at that rate.

    When you type ebay

    It is auto hyperlinked now by software.

    So any thread that has "ebay" in it has the link you can use

    Maddux Master Needlist - Need anything listed

    GU FT
    If you have Greg Maddux Topps Moments and Milestones FT, PLMK still need a bunch from 07 and 08 Base, Black, and Blue, and of course Red.

    There are a few ebay specific banners. but as Nick mentioned we have new software in place that now adds ebay links automatically (not to mention other online merchants like amazon, newegg etc).

    Ebay use to pay out per bid but that might have been 6+ years ago, just like the rest of the world things change. The site also started on a shared host for $15 a month and that changed as the site grew.

    So does TheBench now receive anything when ebay is accessed through links in posts ?
