Hi Steve,
      The counter is put on by the seller. It has been offered for at lest the last few years I have been selling. As far as I know it is just counting the times people have looked at the page. And, yes cool rear derailleur. Steven Willis 1778 East Second Street Scotch Plains NJ 07076 908-322-9022

> Can anybody say when ebay instituted the counter to monitor the number of watchers when you sell items? As I don't sell frequently on ebay, I had never seen this feature before. Does anybody know whether the number listed is the number of people who have bookmarked the auction or perhaps something else. If it the number of bookmarks, there are likely going to be fireworks at the end of the auction for my late 70's Titanium Huret Success rear derailleur where more than one quarter of the people who have looked at the auction have bookmarked it. The same for the 1960's Campagnolo waterslide decal, where almost third of the viewers have bookmarked the auction. Of the rest of the auctions the ratio of bookmarks to views lies between 1 out of 6 and 1 out of 10.
