Hello Mario,

Are you able to put a confirmation when i hit the delete button? Sometime, i accidentally hit the delete button and the system will remove the item immediately. There is no way for me to retrieve the item number. It will be great if the system will ask "Are you sure you want to delete this item?" before deleting the item from the system. Thanks

Kayel

It's possible, but other users may find it annoying...

How hard would it be to create a setting so that the user could choose between immediate deletion and being presented with a warning? I don't think I would be overly annoyed if I was given a warning before deleting an active listing, as long as the <purge completed> worked without giving me a warning. I wouldn't think most users delete a lot of listings before they're completed, so a warning shouldn't be a big imposition.

On the rare occasion that I have accidentally deleted something that I wanted to keep, it has been my only use of the browsers Back button, on this site, in order to retreive the details and re-enter the snipe. If that were not possible it still wouldnt be a great problem as I have all the items that I'm interested in on my watch list on eBay, and I still know what I'm prepared to pay.

So I dont need a confirmation, but if one were implemented it would not annoy me either, it is one of those issues I'm almost completely neutral on.
