uiguy856yAhahhahaha nice one!
It's "assortment" right?
burtybob4556yOr clever advertising ploy to get people to share a picture of the "mistake" with ebay in it 😉
if I was an ebay employee and was told this happened because lack of testing I would throw a fit. As long as we have mobile apps which cut off words at arbitrary places, these things will happen.
1) your name amuses me
2) that's the iPhone mail app from the way that the UI looks. If they didn't do tests on the iPhone Mail app I honestly don't know what they would do tests on - because I'm fairly certain that has one of the highest user bases
3) I still agree with you because stuff like this will happen regardless of how much you test (one might say it's unavoidable)
Sure :) to be more specific - it is almost impossible to come up with a permanent "solution" to this. One would have to have a list of every word that could result in undesirable ellipsis and decide that every single email subject can't contain those words within a certain range of characters that depends on the screen widths of the most common devices.
Imagine a prompt in the email authoring form saying "warning! you wrote "Assassin's Creed" at position 26. this could be cropped to "Ass" on some devices!"
