Section NE-2A 1974 Conclave

The 1974 Section NE-2A Conclave was hosted by Wakpominee Lodge#48 and held at Camp Wakpominee.  Both the patch and the neckerchief featured the Wakpominee Gray Squirrel totem and the Olympic Rings.  The theme for the Conclave was Gather the Clan.

There were three issues for the event, although I only have scans of two.  There was a pocket patch, a particpant neckerchief and a staff neckerchief.

First up is the pocket patch

eBay – Changes and More Changes

Another change for eBay, in the name of security, hiding winning bidders ID’s.  Last year, eBay began hiding the ID of all bidders, the down side was you no longer knew if your friend was already bidding on an item.  The plus side for eBay was an increase in security and reducing fraud (fake second chance offers, etc.) .

This is now being extended to winning bidder ID’s.

Based on the positive results we’ve seen by anonymizing bidder User IDs, as well as our commitment to protecting all bidders from becoming targets for fraudsters, we’ve decided to extend anonymized User IDs to winning bidders, as well. This change will be implemented sometime this week.

You will still be able to see bidder ID’s in the following areas:

  • Sellers will be able to view all bidder IDs on their listings.
  • All members can click on the bidder ID and view the bidder’s Bid History page, which will detail the categories in which they’ve bid over the past 30 days.
  • Feedback pages will show the same information as now – buyer and seller IDs, with comments visible to all.
