Am I the only one who hates Auctioneer? I started a few months ago trying to make some money, and the more I used Auctioneer, the more I hated it. I hate having to scan the AH to do anything. I hate its overly complicated interface. I hate that searches using Auctioneer are USELESS if you haven't run a scan in the last hour. Blah. Really don't see what people see in this addon.The answer ... Auctionator. Does what you need ... posts multiples, automatically undercuts, searches items quickly, and gives you a list of your auctions that have been undercut. http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-addons/details/auctionator.aspx

It was a fine standin when auctioneer was broken, and I might keep it around for the saved searches, but it doesn't hold a candle to the snatch list or many of the other features I use.

I found snatch to be useless. If I had done an AH scan, it works fine. Otherwise, it returns junk results. When I want to use the AH, I don't want to waste my time scanning the entire AH. Auctionator does the trick nicely. I can click through my entire shopping list, purchase what I need, post what I need, cancel any undercut auctions, and be back to playing the game long before Auctioneer completes a scan.

I've gotta disagree with you big time. I am a very casual auctioneer, just trying to make a bit of gold on the side with stuff I don't use from drops and whatnot. I don't spend a whole lot, but am saving up for 280 flying.I was devastated with Auctioneer broke; I tried out 3-4 other addons and hated they didn't have a version of the Appraisal tab on Auctioneer. I know it has hurt me gold-wise, but I didn't auction much at all until Auctioneer was back up and running.I know there are a ton of features & functions of Auctioneer I don't use because I'm a casual auctioneer, and it may be more complicated than needed for a pro, but I love what I've got in it!

It sounds to me you were using the slow scan (the play button one) and not the fast scan (fast forward icon that can only be used once every 15 minutes). One thing of note is that by default that button requires a second click to work. Once it does, I go refill my water glass and it's done.Auctioneer has made vast improvements with this latest version and feels a lot faster than the old version did (or the economy is still broke, but the item counts sound about right still, so it must be more efficient in some regards). Most of my auctioning time is at the mailbox attempting to retrieve mail.As with all good addons, your mileage may vary, and if you found an addon that you like and can use effectively, then by all means use it. Obviously you are not the only person or the addon wouldn't exist and stay updated. Over a million downloads on the most recent version, so they must be doing something right after all.
