I reckon you waited all of 9 nanoseconds and Dimitris started with a deleted item! WTF?

9 nanoseconds was plenty of time!

(15 minutes, actually!)

no, that was just a reminder on how to effectively remove items from the trade.

Hey all, can't seem to find the instructions on how to easily repeat entries from a previous MT - I don't suppose anyone kept a copy of what to do, did they...?

I am thinking about participating for the first time in the European math trade, but I am scared of the shipping costs.
Does "free shipping" include a tracking number? I couldn't find the answer in the trade details.

I really don't know why I am posting here. I could simply wait and ask Base the Bass in person on Sunday. whistle

As first thing I want to say that I like the idea on how dealing with the removed items.

My second thought is that, due to the high mailing costs, it can to held the European Math Trade every three months instead of every two.

Third and last, I made a really god exchange in the last MAth Trade and I know that who received my Ace of Aces: Wingleader has liked the status of the game.

Greetings guys!

I am posting this on behalf of Base the Bass.

Unfortunately Dimitris was admitted to the hospital today and he won't be able to run the trade, so he already asked JeffyJeff to cancel it.
It seems it will be postponed for a while until he is better.

We don't know exactly what the problem is yet, but he is having some tests and it is very likely that it isn't something serious.
Fingers crossed for a speedy recovery for Dimitris!

There's the problem of managing the offers geeklist (I don't think it's possible to transfer ownership of a GL, so it would require a BGG admin to close the list at the right time).

maybe he'd be willing to give Dimitris Chatzidimitriou his bgg login info? or any bgg admin's in this mt? Maybe Dimitris Vasiadis, fingers crossed, will be back before even the 1st deadline arrives?

worse case is I could do the final sync w/the geeklist, load the summary, etc... won't be able to lock down the geeklist but if anyone edits items or adds new items to the offers geeklist just won't be picked up

Best wishes to Dimitris for his pit stop.
Sometimes life takes you to that, it made with me to solve of my shoulder dislocations problems many years ago.
Again best wishes.

I was forgetting to thank Dimitris Chatzidimitriou/JamesH for informing us.

So sorry to hear about Dimitris. Best wishes from the Netherlands!
After reading through the thread, I am a bit confused though... is the math-trade cancelled or is it still going?
