Sorry for the probable OT subject, but I already wrote to the Support of ListingsHistory.com, without getting any reply at all.

The point is that clicking on an old item ID in the Gixen History tab, where 'old' means expired more than 90 days ago, I get automatically the page of ListingsHistory.com, in which they suggest to register for free to obtain the service of consulting a very big database of expired auctions, etc.

The registration doesn't work (no email of verification sent to me actually) and a mail of request of info to the support address:

support (at) listingshistory.com

has the same result of the registration process: nothing, no reply.

As in the main page of this website they say they need help economically etc. and at the bottom of the main page we can read:

© 2015 ListingsHistory.Com

I suppose the website is dead, isn't it?

In which case the function of automatically redirecting the old links of the Gixen History to this dead website should be fixed, IMO.
[And if the website is dead or offline, should be useful to say so]

Thx a lot

Roberto

Thanks for pointing this out,

Please email Mario direct at the support address given on the Contact tab above.

He should be able to advise as to whether that service is still being maintained... Personally, I haven't heard otherwise, but I do suspect it's costly to maintain such a site without any significant investment or support.

I don't know if the e-mail verification system ever worked - it wasn't working when I registered with the site about 2 years ago.

Having said that registration does work - the verification doesn't seem to be required. I just checked it on an item I won in 2016: If you aren't logged in you are prompted to do so and only see the item photo. Once logged in you get details such as the item description, high bid, photo etc.

ListingsHistory is in process of being discontinued. I will remove links in Gixen shortly.

It looked like a good idea at the time, but it never picked up traffic, so I decided to stop investing in it.
