If you haven't noticed this forum, for lack of better word, screws up the linking when linking to an eBay auction. If a user posts the link to an eBay auction the link will normally (and should) look like this: (I will use nclaxmiddy11's Nintendo Wii auction as an example because it was the first one I found) Code: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=200242121987 That link will successfully get you to the auction. But for some reason this forum's link authorization page screws up the link and makes it look like this: Code: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&[SIZE="3"][B]amp;[/B][/SIZE]item=200242121987 Note the added "amp;". This makes the it appear as if the auction is invalid. It would seem that every time there is an ampersand (&) in the link it inserts "amp;" after that ampersand. Thus messing up the link. This has been quite a problem in the Marketplace when people post links to their auctions and people are unable to get to them. EDIT: Here try it for yourself: Here's the link if it were to be posted normally: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=200242121987 Doesn't work, right? Well here's a link the re-routes you to that same link: http://snipurl.com/35u9b Works.
