jBidWatcher project abandonned or still alive ?

Reported by ivan | December 1st, 2019 @ 06:01 AM | in 2.1 Release

Dear Morgan,
This question just to know if it's worth to wait for a fix for the recent login issues or if it's necessary to search an alternative.

That said, I enjoyed your program and donnated for encouragement. It's of a daily use and I can't wait more without any hope for a result.

I read again the jbidwatcher forums to see if you were still responding to messages and it appears that's quite rare and there are no more comments from you.

If you happen to read this message, thanks again in advance for your reply.
Best regards

    I haven’t been able to work on JBidwatcher in a long time. I don’t use eBay myself that much anymore. I don’t know what is going wrong; it’s probably not a huge issue, it just takes a lot to get back up to speed.

    It’s not...abandoned, but I have to admit, if you need an alternative I recommend Gixen. He’s cut a deal with eBay, where he has direct access to their purchase API. That’s probably a MUCH better long-term solution than I can get away with. :-(

    Hi Morgan, I would be happy to donate to the project (as probably most here would) as I understand and appreciate that your time is valuable.

    If it really can't be done, perhaps we could outsource the issue to someone on Freelancer.com?

    Really hoping there is a solution, as the software is 99.9% working - there just seems to be this login issue.

    I'm glad this great program isn't abandonned. I won with it a lot of auctions at very interesting prices.

    My intention is not to replace it as far as the issues are fixed. You gave me the hope I was expecting !
    Thanks a lot for your honesty and the time you spent to writr the code.
    I'll get a try with Gixen.

    Kind regards

    Well, it's 15 days later and there hasn't been a post or any kind of update. I think it's officially abandoned.
