:x No :x

I find their new search very awkward to use and it's not simply a culture shock like the new HUKD format :whistling:
It really annoys me; why if I select a specific word would I want ebay to return listings that didn't contain that word? Also I used to search a lot by choosing a category and excluding terms I didn't want to see - the new search won't let you do this.

Edit: After hours of experimenting I've found workarounds for both my points above:-
1. You search for geomag and ebay returns items without that word in the title; search for geomag -thisisnotaword - magically only items with geomag remain.
2. You seach a category for -green or * -green (wanting to see anything that isn't green) and is says "invalid search" - search for (a*,b*,c*etc etc,z*) -green
This doesn't get over all the gripes by any means - but for me it makes it workable.

Agreed on the last point, ive found the HUKD's new system was actually much improve and just as easy to use after a while, especially on the text only view IMO

Ebay have just gotten rid of the decent points like seeing a list buy now only buttons or sort by lowest price inc postage. Also there are far less results per page now as each listing has a much high space which is way unnecessary, why change what worked well

I hate it too, didn't they change it back last week to the old style but have now changed it back again? lets start a petition!!
