I got the email about switching to the new API via gixen.net today. So I followed all the steps and everything seemed good. But then about 12 hours later Ebay sends me an email that they think my account has been fraudulently compromised and that I need to reset my password. I did so by going directly to ebay.com and following the directions.
But now I can't place any snipes in gixen, it just errors out with "Could not add this item (XXXXXXXXX)(1, -1)." where XXXXX is the ebay item id.
Also gixen is complaining that my ebay password is too weak (its not, I used a respectable password generator).
I suspect resetting my ebay password has caused the API link with gixen to go stale. But I can't find any place to reset the link. (And what if ebay's fraud alerts go off again and disable my password?)
