***A Message from Stephanie Tilenius – Join My Town Hall Tomorrow, September 19th from 11:30am to 1pm PT***
September 18, 2008 | 12:15PM PST/PT
Hi everyone...this is Stephanie Tilenius, SVP & GM of North America Marketplaces. I'm hosting our Town Hall audio event tomorrow, September 19th, 2008 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Pacific time. I hope you'll join me and a number of my colleagues from Trust & Safety, Selling, Shipping, PayPal, and other teams. We gather monthly to talk about what's on your mind and answer your questions.
Ask your question LIVE on the air
The best part of these events is the conversation we get to have with the Community. If you have a question for me or one of the other leaders on our panel, call us at our toll-free number – 1-877-474-3302 - and ask us your question on the air.
If you'd prefer, you can drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll take several of these written questions during the Town Hall as well.
Tune in via wsRadio
We'll be broadcasting via Internet radio with the help of our friends at wsRadio (the same folks that produce Griff's eBay Radio show). Members can listen to our live event via Windows Media Player or Real Player.
So please visit www.ebay.com/townhall to join the event or for more information. I look forward to hearing from you.
SVP & GM, North America Marketplaces
***Consumer Product Safety Commission - Children's Items Recalled This Week***

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recently issued a recall for the following items:
-Pottery Barn Kids recalls children's metal water bottles due to choking hazard -Regent Sports recalls MacGregor and Mitre brand folding soccer nets due to choking hazard -Simplicity "Drop Side Cribs" recalled due to entrapment and suffocation hazard
eBay takes recalled items very seriously, and we work closely with the Consumer Product Safety Commission on these issues. We encourage buyers and sellers to visit http://www.cpsc.gov (see the Recent Recalls section) for more details about the products and model numbers included in this recall. You may also wish to visit our Recalled Items policy at http://pages.ebay.com/help/policies/recalled.html.
For Sellers: Please check your product model numbers and refrain from listing any items that are part of this recall. Any currently listed items that are included in the recall should be ended.
For Buyers: If you believe an item you are interested in bidding on or purchasing may be part of this recall, we encourage you to use the Ask Seller a Question feature to verify.
As a service to our Community, eBay announces some product recalls, like these, when we believe the marketplace will be impacted. To stay informed about all CPSC recalls, please bookmark www.cpsc.gov and sign up to receive notices on new recalls issued by the CPSC.
