EBay removed the Magic Dino Cube auction, because:

"The listing was removed because it violated the eBay Keyword Spamming policy. The violation occurred when you included the following information in your listing:

like Rubik's magic"


Well... if it is not like a rubik's magic, the closest I can find is that it is like a Flexible Hexagon, right? :-P
(Maybe I should not include the word "Tandem" too?)

Sometimes trying to be too honest can be bad... :?
I will relist it soon... (without being honest LOL)

PS And why now? only one day was left... grrrr... :roll:

Oh no... ebay seems to have deleted my whole template and no relsit option is available...
which means I will have to re-edit the whole thing again...

I must calm down... I must calm down....

1... 2... 3... 4... 5... 6... 7... 8... 9... 10...


ok... feeling better already...
a nice chocolate could now complete the anger management recovery....! :-P

PS Will relist later... when I get the time to do this again...

Pantazis, repeat Gus Fraba, Gus Frabaaaaaa :):):)

Oh why the hell has ebay done that? I really can't understand. There are SO MANY AUCTIONS violing their policy...... I really can't understand it. So you are not supossed to add Rubik keyword to auctions or what?

:twisted:

I think they didn't appreciate the words "like Rubik's Magic".

But the only reason I placed that, was to make sure that my auction was not misleading, in explicit, the puzzle was actually a magic, and nothing to do with an original dino cube...
Otherwise I would have omiited the word "like Rubik's magic" in the first place...! Now I will add a "white lie" instead.

Life is such an experience, isn't it? ;)

Use something like: "Made from genuine Rubik's Magic tiles".

Or post an image with the words "like Rubik's Magic". Ergo it would see an image, not the text, because the text is in image form. Make sense?
