Suddenly I cannot automatically import my E Bay Watch list ? I can load them one at a time manually - which takes way too long. Please advise as How to Correct this problem ?

You can't correct it. Frequent use of ebay watchlist import can cause eBay to insert captcha images, disabling the feature. Once that happen, you have no choice but to insert snipes manually. I would wait at least 24 hours before trying watchlist import again, and even then I would use it sparingly.

Could you show the captcha and let the user enter the answer?
Would really appreciate this, as I use the feature frequently.
btw: just renewed my mirror subscription... Wink

I suspect that would be really difficult to implement... but I do not know that for certain.

You are right, it's very difficult. I tried to implement that a while ago, but I was ultimately not successful. The system is designed in such a way to prevent exactly that.
