    I know that if I recognize a fellow RPFer's name as someone that is bidding on an item, I usually won't bid against them out of courtesy. Unfortunately, not all of us use the same name for ebay as we do for the boards.

    Would it be possible to create a listing of people's ebay handles so that when looking to bid on pieces that already have bids, we can see whether the person we're potentially bidding against is a fellow RPFer?

    A side benefit of this would be that folks could use the list as a tool to research the ebay feedback rating (if one exists) of Junkyard sellers they're looking to possibly buy from.

    Interesting idea, Pete. :thumbsup It would have to be completely voluntary though. Kind of like the RPF Members Location Map.

    Thanks, guys. Since I proposed this idea, I've changed my handle to match my board name (hadn't realized it was that easy to do it), but here's mine:

    Can this be moved (and stuck) where it'll have some more visibility? Either the OT or the Junkyard?

    We've gone ahead and made a field in every member's profile for Ebay Usernames. Members can edit their profile and add their Ebay identity. Keep in mind people can search that too by toggling "more options" on the "Members" page.

    We haven't announced it yet... so go ahead and give it a spin. :)

    It doesn't seem to work. I try to enter my user name into the field and I get an error message that says I've entered too much information into that field. I can get "darkknight066" before it gives me that message. Is there any way to expand the number of allowable digits?

    I'd originally set that field for 13 digits, thinking it would be enough, but obviously not. :D

    Try it again, I've upped the max to 20.
