Comments Has anyone else noticed this with Amiami pre-owned lately?

  • JSandio1 day ago#101310319I for one would find it humorous if this was a passive aggressive move against using bots on the site. It seems that's the majority of people posting here at least.
    It's probably not though, but it would be funny. It'll be interesting to see if AmiAmi ever implements actual rate limiting and starts cracking down on certain API call patterns.


    Omg that would be hilarious XD the thought of all those false listings actually being things that were gonna go up, but they've got someone monitoring 'em so if something tries to be bought the second it goes up some guy at Amiami goes "Psych!" and pulls the listing lol

    But yeah, it would be nice to see sites start implementing anti-bot protocols so us normal folk can actually snag some cool items! Tho I'm no tech whiz so I have no idea if that's even feasible, but I like the thought!

    Amiami pre owned is sweaty as fuck. the buyfriend.moe website is too slow.

    I could be mistaken but I always assumed with AmiAmi pre-own the item might have been in inventory at 1 time but it was sold before the store site could refresh inventory availability hence no price. I too have encountered 100+ pages of offerings but usually by page 43 the items posted show the MSRP when initially released and there is either an "Orders Closed" tag or no price above.

    And if I bookmark an Ami Ami pre-own item and it sells before I purchase it/postpone purchasing it the pre-own item in bookmark will vanish = sold = gone = u missed it.

    Odyssey2 days ago#101271048i use a website that helps me track any pre-owned items i'm looking for. i get sent emails of things that i think are on amiami, only to click on the link and see that there was nothing at all. it's crazy that amiami hasn't solved this problem yet.

    I think we're using the same thing; I thought it was a system error that I was getting all these mails, only to find no page at AmiAmi; but I never thought it could be an error on AmiAmi's side. Makes sense.

    for me, this has been happening at least once a week for a good few months now. like other commenters have said, it's made buyfriend completely unusable and since i also check the madoka tab ive had fun seeing those same three permanent listings since like, may i think? me and my boyfriend have talked a lot about potential causes but ultimately i have no idea why it's happening. kind of reassuring to see that everyone else is as confused as i am, i felt like i was the only one who didn't understand what was going on

    Yesterday I was looking for a specific figure and I was SO HAPPY when I found it in the pre owned section. It was uploaded at 12pm here, and I literally refreshed the page every 5 minutes (im serious) waiting for it to become available for purchase for 2 hours. But at 2pm it was just gone??? Its my first time being super serious about buying at the pre owned section and I was so disappointed :(
