"Does it matter?", said 3-year Bidville member BBH.  ;D

The views to our items on BV have been very consistent over the years: the vast majority of our items end with 0 views, a few with 1 view, and once in a while we'll have a really hot item that gets 2-5 views.  Our last group of 197 auctions ended with a combined 29 views.  80% of the items listed on the site are in the sports card categories, and the majority of non-sports item sales on the site are seller-to-seller.

EDIT: I believe Stardust, Thentavius, and a few others have had similar experiences with BV.
I sold 3 pieces of inexpensive sheet music on BV.  Then I closed all my listings, and instantly sold an $8 piece of music that had been sitting there for months, with a panicked "what happened to xxx?".  Lesson learned there is to never park items forever ANYWHERE!!

Peeps were horrid.  BidVille emails were the same sickening "We miss you".  I finally unsubscribed to their emails.  Never even looked into their *stores*, because I knew it was a losing cause from the gitgo. 

I've always actually considered the site a total and complete scam of some sort, just wasn't sure what, exactly...
Laughing7 They sent me a survey recently and I told them I had signed up long ago but, after seeing the way their boards operated I wanted nothing to do with selling or buying there. I also said that I couldn't imagine them every being able to revive a dead horse.  Snorting
