I noticed that I've not gotten any geekgold for eBay listings for a few weeks now. I also see that the geekgold to US dollar ratio on auctions seems to be improving from the 10 to 1 ratio it was at for the last few months. I'm guessing the two are correlated, as hundreds of geekgold, generated by listing thousands of heroclix and other CMG items, are kept off the market.

I was just curious if this a permanent change or just a temporary glitch? While I've enjoyed collecting geekgold via eBay listings, the rise of scripts (http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/305787/page/1) to do this seems to make it sort of silly and VERY inflationary to the BGG community.

Thanks!

Yes, it has been a long time, at least a couple weeks. I think it's just a glitch, however. If you check a game page with ebay listings, a number of them are listed as ended, which makes me think that they just have not been pulled out of the system yet and GG awarded.

I submitted a bug report a few days ago but am glad you posted here. I assume that if there was a change in policy, it would be announced, but you never know.

Is that why we have so many Amyitis's in the Hanging Gardens lists?

Or maybe why Power Grid and Arkham Horror keep showing up on the Ambush! list. I actually wanted to use the ebay function here for that game, and was very frustrated. At least it looks like actual Ambush! listings outnumber Arkham listings now, but only barely.
