Please advise!! I have just changed my country setting to Uk as that's where I am, and the main gixen site to UK. But back on my home page it says 'main site Chicago' and 'mirror site Miami'. Surely this is not right? I am a bit worried now as I have one active snipe and maybe it won't work now?! It also says I have to edit the snipe after changing settings, which I have done, but can I double check that the active snipe is ok? Question Question

Chicago and Miami relate to different Gixen servers, you can not control where Gixen servers are located and it has nothing to do with the Country settings.

The first Country setting, just affects where the links within the snipes point... so when you click on them, which Ebay site you end up on.

The Target setting changes the Ebay site on which Gixen bids. So since you are in the UK it does make sense for it to bid via the UK site.

N.B. All Ebay servers are actually located in the US, as are all the Gixen servers. So there wouldn't be any advantage in Gixen placing servers in other countries around the world, it would actually move them further away from the servers on which bids need to be registered.
