The last question:Is there a way to get Auctioneer to tell you how many times you've listed a specific item?Beancounter has this information. Search for specific item, and the top number will be how many times it has seen the item listed by you or purchased by you. There is a excel macro that will pull it from whatever file Auctioneer is storing the information in and will drop it into excel so you can get at the information more readily.I've seen links to it before, but I never messed with it myself.

to show how many times you have sold an item in the tooltip for Auctioneer go to Autioneer's config menu then select "Tooltip" on the right. Scroll down and select the check box for "Enable Sales Stats" and "Show sales stats in tooltip". You can then select what ever sub-things you want displayed. I use this for helping me know which of my glyphs have and haven't been selling and which are the most popular. If i've been posting glyphs over and over for a week and still haven't sold any I know that it may be a unpopular glyph and stop bothering to try and sell it (at least for now).Hope that that helps. Also as stated above Beancounter will show unsuccessful auctions but having it successful auction stats right in the tooltip works best for me.

That's good to know for some things - doesn't help me much though. I like to know how many times I have listed _that_specific_item_ not how many times I have listed that one plus all of the otehr identical listings (how many times did I list _that_ specific belt, not how many times have I listed multiple copies of that belt, for example). I like to go "right, that hasn't sold after X listings, shard it." You can have Auctioneer tell you that you bought an item (and give you the reason, assuming you set a reason when you bought it) for X amount Y days ago - I'd just like it to add "item has been relisted Z times". Hmmm... does any of that make sense? I'm currently running on only 2 hours of sleep out of 24.

@Kaylad: In my experience, most equipment (i.e., armor/weapons) should be vendored after [one sales attempt if a 48-hour duration]/[two sales at 24-hours], since the deposit price is a percentage of what a vendor will pay for them. If you're going to vendor an item after an auction attempt, it doesn't make sense to post it more times than once or twice, as you'll be losing money. That said, if you're absolutely sure you can sell a [Nobles Brand of the Bandit] for 60 gold eventually (as an example, and as unlikely as it may be), it doesn't necessarily follow that you should vendor it after just an attempt or two.Sharding items may or may not follow the same rule of thumb, depending on how much the 'chant mats go for on your server.
