Angry Category no longer valid?

I was selling items in this one category and I tried listing more and it said "category no longer valid"
Any ideas to solve the problem?

Look at where other sellers are posting their items and list it there..

ebay had an "annoucement" that it would be changing categories.. most likely the category you list in is one of them

No, I checked the category of the same items I'm selling and all theirs are the same as the one that I'm being blocked on. I need help bad before I do something irrational.

I mean it!!! I'm a 44 year old storm vet and everybody is eating and I'm starving!!! It's total BS. I've been on disability for over a year now and I guess I'm not as computer savvy as most of you on here, Again, I need some help PLEASE!

You are probaly being limited because that is a highly produced counterfiet item .. i have over 10,000 feedback and cannot list anything right now with PITTSBURGH STEELERS in the title along with alot of other teams and i am not even selling jerseys just DEADSTOCK ITEMS from stores like mouse pads and t-shirts - so i just add a H to the city and you may want to change the category to t-shirts or something like that ....you will get limited through their system due to a new account or selling too much too quick from my experience .

Right, change up your title a little a little bit, and try another category..

If it's not working, try something different, you can't keep doing the same thing and expecting a different outcome.
