I have a small feature request that would be very useful to myself. I buy a lot on ebay and set a significant number of snipes everyday. From time to time I will get a captcha error on one of my snipes, Gixen will then cancel all of the following snipes that I have set.

My feature request - notification (via email?) that a captcha has been requested and all other snipes have been suspended. This would save me a lot of wasted snipes and hence time on these occasions.

I'm giving this one a bump.

This has happened again, all my snipes where cancelled due to a captcha error and I had no idea until it was too late. A lot of work wasted.

A notification of some kind would be a massive help when this occurs.

Do you have a Mirror subscription ?

Have you turned on Notifications on the Settings page (which is only effective if you do have a subscription) ?

That way, at least, the result of the auction that triggers the cancellation of the following snipes would be notified to you via email. Depending on your email provider, you may even be able to set up some sort of further alert based on the contents of that email stating that a Captcha has been detected by Gixen.

I had seen that option in Gixen setting before but disregarded as I set a lot of snipes everyday and I figured I would be swamped with emails for prices changes, etc.

However, thinking about it now, I would be able to filter the emails and only receive an alert/notification for the emails I choose.

Thanks, I think I can do something with that.
