Just was checking ebay,
typing: Dengar....search engine changed to "Denar"
okay...can happen...I type in: "Dengar vintage"...search engine changed to "Denar Vintage"
WTF??? This is totally NEW! I search regularly for Dengars! It never happend to me before.
And most ridiculous:
"Dengar vintage" has 402 hits, whilst "Denar vintage" has 3 hits!!!!
Seriously...it is getting worse all the time!
Anyone noticed some other newer issues?
Seriously...the ebay search engine gets worse all the time...my mobile can do better now (recognizing words)....which is a very bad sign!

I used to just click, Toys & Games, then Star Wars, then Vintage and that was it, I could pick, figures, accessories, vehicles etc. and individual characters.... Now I can't even find a damn vintage section and have to trawl through thousands of modern shit.
I type in Luke Bespin and get 220 items... 180 of them are usually bit parts for the damn Hot Toys 1/6 Luke Bespin
ebay regularly makes me wish I was dead!

I see this from time to time but I just tried that on ebay.com and dengar vintage works fine.
Swtiched over to ebay.de and yeah. denar
But I got around that by searching on "dengar vintage" WITH the quotes in the search bar. (or "dengar" something else outside quotes)
I frequently enclose my searches in quotes when I don't want the search engine to screw with what I typed.
Try using the quotes... that should help.

I searched 'Popy Star Wars', eBy France changed it to 'Pop Star Wars' and gave me results for Bobble Head characters and a pop-up R2 saber.
