Still using InkFrog, but starting to shop around.... (related post elsewhere).   :-(

Started with SpareDollar around 2005 and went with the merger, never tried any others.

The forum still has the means to post a poll showing percentages of answers.
I've used Auctiva since 2003 or was it 2004.
I've played around with TL but <shrug> have stayed with Auctiva.
If you need help, just let me know the listers that you want in the poll and I'll put one up for you.

Haven't used a lister in years since I don't sell on ebay, but all this talk of listers made me remember one I was a beta tester on a few years back...

It's free. Not sure what all bells and whistles it has.

I don't even know if the lister still works... the latest "news" on the site's home page is from 2009. Might be DOA.

Their forums have postings as recent as today tho...

Hmmm after reading one of the posts, they are having trouble using AZ to list anything with item specifics so who knows what's going on over there.

I'm still with IF - moved with the mass exodus when SD morphed - and have no plans, currently, to switch to anyone else.

I will tell you who to avoid like the plague, though, if they're still around:  Auction Hawk.  Run, do not walk, in the other direction.

Channelmax...such a great company!

I'm still using InkFrog. Like many of you I was with SD for a long time then migrated over to IF. I left online selling for a while, when I came back I started with IF again. IF does what I need it to do and saves me time in the process so I will stick with them until such time as they do not help me but rather cost me time and aggravation. Right now I personally have no complaints with IF...

1999 I started with Auction Watch
slowly in 2000 or 2001 maybe 2002 moved to SpareDollar (had to wait for them to have simple features like scheduling as what good was a lister if you couldn't schedule).
2005 started moving to Auctiva - was there until I basically stopped selling on ebay and they started charging
Have some stuff at Ink Frog
but honestly, I'm wondering how long that will be there
so I'm thinking I better get in the loop.

I don't often list on ebay but like having a "storage" place.

Been using Auctiva for five or six years. There are some annoying aspects (crummy WYSIWYG editor, for example) and I've seriously considered moving on to IF at times but then I have to consider the number of serious complaints I read about IF as compared to Auctiva. So I stay. It works fine almost all of the time though.

Been with IF since about 2004.  Have never tried another service.

IF still works, despite the niggling inadequacies and need for workarounds.  Wish they'd stop inventing new, and take time to fix old.

My biggest gripe?  Features in IF1 that worked so well, that were totally EXCLUDED from IF2.  Not ones that don't work as well in 2, but ones that simply disappeared.

IF..I don't doubt the others problems....but for me it has been almost perfect 97% of the time.

Originally used SD which got swallowed up by IF
Still currently using IF

IF is ok used to be much better
I really would not recommend them to someone

Just keep your expectations low and realize that coming out with new gadgets is their number 1# priority (buggy or not), and customer service/communication is their number #2 priority. 

It seems the more of the gadgets you try to use on IF the more problems you encounter
