And so it begins at

Well, here we go!! The upgrades have started at and they are shaping up to be wonderful!!! First, I must give KUDOS to OLA and its staff for being able to make this switch over without the site going down for even one minute. Next, I would like to list SOME of what we are seeing for changes. To do this, I asked my fellow sellers to list some of what they’ve seen as both sellers and buyers:

To add to kittens’ FABULOUS list, here are a few more!

For buyers:
* Searches are FAST!
* You can set the number of items you view, as well as the size of the images you view.

For sellers:
*The Relist button lets us speed thru the listing of similar items.
*We have a WIDER space for our listings — makes the text look great!
*The dropdown menus make it SUPER EASY to check on o-mail and auctions.
*We look forward to the completion of the categories overhaul — the finished categories will be amazing.
*We have learned AGAIN that OLA loves us by the remarkably smooth installation of the upgrade. OLA did not just pull the tablecloth out from under 14,000,000 dishes — they also replaced it! All this with scarcely a broken teacup!
*And we thank OLA for continuing to provide excellent technical assistance at this extremely busy juncture.

Mine may be kinda weird ones… but here goes:

I LOVE that, as a buyer AND a seller, that I can get to my 0mail without changing pages.

I LOVE that, as a chattie, that I don’t have to keep signing in and out or open a bunch of windows.

I LOVE that, as a member, I was able to get answers quickly and efficiently as things came up.

I didn’t want to repeat what those above me had posted, so I didn’t add ALL those things that I LOVE too!!!

Wow and have you noticed how fast you can bookmark a page and go on?

I love that little feature that lets you change the size of the thumbnail views on the auction lists!


Now, I really don’t have a lot to add to this list. Actually, nothing at all, except that when you click on a picture within a listing, something wonderful happens, but you will have to check it out for yourself. I think these people pretty much covered it. LOL Now, you may be wondering why I only got a few members’ responses. Well, it’s like this: EVERYONE IS REALLY BUSY GETTING READY FOR THE SALE THAT STARTS IN JUST TWO HOURS!!! To see more of what that is all about, please read my last posting below.  And if you just want to check out the upgrades and progress of same, please go to and take a look-see. 😉

  1. What a gutsy and gung ho bunch the intreped entrepenauers of OLA are!

    Having an open house in the middle of site upgrades!

    Are they all nuts?


    They know something sellers at other sites have yet to experience.

    What’s that,you ask?

    They know and TRUST the good folks at

    They know that any probems will be handled quickly, any serious issues will be posted, almost instantly,(no waiting in the dark), and they know that OLA knows THEY,(the sellers), are their customers, and their customers need to have a smooth running auction site, so they can keep THEIR customers,(the buyers), happy and returning.

    Working WITH the good folks at OLA to squash any bugs, unglue any glitches, and at the same time present an astounding array of treasures is, at the very least, testament to the trust and close working relationship between the sellers and the staff at OLA.

    Making the switch with no glitch?
    well that’s just plain astonishing!

    What more can be said?
    OLA sellers are the best
    OLA buyers are top drawer ?

  2. Antiquelittlegirls. Yes, I agree the upgrades have not interupted sellers with their sales and if something broke it got fixed almost immediately. What a great working team. Ola’s team is great and on the ball!
