I saw that all the old auctions are gone. Maybe it would be better behaviors to keep old listing? The idea is that people get to see that the site actually get used.

I think eBay stores each auction's results for 90 days.

Definitely need to keep old auctions available to view. To show site activity is most important now, but it's also good for people to see what prices things are going for and what people are interested in.

Old auctions should be available to view if the link is bookmarked it can still be accessed by its URL. Users can view their closed auctions(buyers and sellers) conveniently at this page:
http://www.biddingpond.com/closed_auctions.php .

To make it more convenient and to allow old auctions to be easily accessed by everyone how would you suggest listing them? Category named "Closed listings" and/or some other alternative?

"Closed listings" or "Completed Auctions" link below the "All listings" should be good. Maybe you'd need to change "All listings" to "All current listings" or something if you did that, though, to emphasize that everything in the "All listings" is still winnable.

** Feature Update **

Image gallery hosting has been fully implemented and is now working. You no longer need to use an outside host to post images(although you still can).

Currently it is not possible. If that does happen again though please contact me and I will modify the amount for you. This feature will be added to my to do list.

Why is the fee amount 7 BTC before any options have been chosen? Is it assumed that at least one picture will be uploaded? Can this option be turned off?

While setting the picture price to 0BTC I edited another field. Issue resolved. Picture hosting will be free for the foreseeable future.

You know what would really help me as a buyer? If I could filter out all the 'Ships from USA, no international' auctions. I see stuff I like at a price I'd pay, only to find seller will not send to me.

Is that possible? Just Europe / USA / Everywhere else would be good enough (for me).

I wonder what the ratio is of sold auctions to unsold. Nothing I've put up has gotten any interest yet.

Live Auctions   26   
Closed Auctions   42

I'm working on automating the rest of the stats and putting up an info page for those who are interested.
