Post your ideas for features to make new and improved Marketplace even better!

We won't be able to implement all of the ideas that get posted, but they will all be given consideration.

Would it be possible to add a page navigation bar to the bottom the of the page on the "Find My Wants" page so that you don't have to scroll all the way to the top to go to the next page when scrolling through the pages? I know it's minor, but just something I noticed.

Is there any way you could allow users to make the details of their purchase history private? I've always found it unsettling that when looking at someone's buyer/seller ratings, you can click on an order number and see the details of their purchase, including the price they paid. I consider that personal information and would prefer to make that private.

As long as you're changing things. I have over 150 games on my want list. Can we have a "Group By" option.

1) I'd like to be able to group by game title and then expand the game out to see who's selling it.

2) I'd also like to be able to group by seller (Sorting by seller would be a start) so I can see who's selling games that I want. Bulk orders save on shipping sometimes.

3) I'd like to be able to group by my wish list rating 1-Love to have, etc.

4) I can also see using a group by "Wishlist" and "Want to Buy" (never understood the difference between those lists, but am sure someone's making use of them).

5) Within each of these groupings, possibly a sub grouping of what country they're coming from.

All kinds of things you could do with grouping and sub grouping.

I agree about not really seeing a difference so I use my Want To Buy for something unrelated.

Having said that'Find My Wants' appears to pull from 'Want to Buy' and 'Wishlist'.
Any chance you could make that be selected. I actually wouldn't mind seeing 'Want in Trade' as an option.

So something like 'Find My Wants' using games from:
x Want in Trade
x Wishlist
x Want to Buy

Where x is a box you can check/uncheck

Some games on My Want in trade, I'd consider actually buying if the price is right or perhaps I'm already buying another game from that user and want to take advantage of combining shipping

Thank you

Is there anyway to display all of listed items on a single page? Referring to Inventory->Manage and Inventory->Price Comparator.

It's so much quicker to do a control+f to find a game that I need to edit or change its status than it is to flip thru 6 pages

The new version is clunkier in some ways.

I especially don't like how I cannot see my notes for the game (where I detail the condition, extras, etc.) from my MANAGE inventory list. It makes me click on each game which then opens in a new page.

The Confirm Sale page needs to let us leave the Shipping cost blank. (It won't let me confirm a sale if I leave it blank, type a note like as "agreed via geekmail" or "combining postage" and it won't even accept and amount with a $ in front of it!

Please, for all that is good in the world, add the Page links to the bottom of the pages (for multiple page returns) so that when we browse top to bottom, we can click the link at the bottom without having to go all the way back to the top.

I'd love to have the GeekMarket open in a new tab by default rather than the same tab as BGG.com.

Not sure if this isn't already possible, but if I cancel an order would it be possible to relist it? I created an item for a specific user but someone else clicked on it.

*edit*
Mentioned in the other thread, but repeated here: add banktransfer as an option.

Going one step farther, I'd love to see "search by wishlist rank 1-5" because maybe I only want to see all my "must haves" and not all my "thinking abouts"

Not for me, I have 530 items on my Wishlist but Find My Wants says "No Items Found." I assume at least one of those 530 games must be for sale.

Could it be possible to confirm the shipping price on a later date, as sometimes there are several options from with a buyer can chose when he has bought a game

Please don't generate the entire login dialog in the DOM at all for users who're already logged in. I have a password manager with timing out master password set. It recognizes that it has a password saved for this domain, and sees a password field in the DOM, so it asks me for my master password every time; completely unnecessary, since I'll never see that login form as I'm already logged in.

(I really wish Angular encouraged more webby thinking, where what's in the DOM originally actually matters. Yes, it'll be transformed, but the client still gets the original template. This is getting so bad for accessibility, and browser tools based on the original DOM are starting to suffer a lot, too.)

INVENTORY > MANAGE

At item listing only functions for listed item functions are EDIT and DELETE.

Can SUSPEND be added back as a function?

Users may use the SUSPEND function should a game be posted to a Math Trade but then relist if the game did not trade. The relist action could be done as functions in the suspend list of RELIST and DELETE.

ACCOUNT > ITEM SIGNATURE

I had no idea what this was until I opened the window to see that description indicate it was SELLER POLICIES. Can the name for this section match it's use, a la similar naming as those other evil online auction sites?

A very simple idea that was tried a few years back to some confusion and argument.

Can/should all entries have a time limit ie. if not sold within, say, 12 months, they are removed automatically and need to be re-entered. That should thin the Marketplace out and make for a leaner and more effective site.

I realise that this is a pain for many big sellers, but for buyers it makes a lot of sense if you know you are actually looking at viable purchases.

That makes sense - but "suspend" the item rather than delete it so if it is still a valid offer it can just be unsuspended.

It is possible to filter listings by where items are shippable TO, but can the same be done for where they are shipped FROM?

There is an 'item location' recorded (or at least there was in the old display) so this should be possible and would make it much easier to find viable offers where e.g. intercontinental shipping is likely to be completely uneconomic.

The sales reports e.g. http://boardgamegeek.com/geekmarket/account/sales?year=2014&... don't show the name of the item sold - it would be really helpful if it did, even if just for re-listing copy and paste.

It's there, the "Available" button is a toggle switch. Click it and it becomes "Suspended" and vice versa.

Even better if there were a 'relist' button for confirmed sales where one has more than one.

The new format is great.

One suggested enhancement, include the BGG rating next to the game name and enable sorting by this field. This would be valuable when viewing the inventory of a particular seller who has a game or two you want to buy, but you also want to ponder unfamiliar games in their inventory to possibly add to your purchase/shipment.

Some sellers have 100's of unfamiliar games for sale, sorting by the BGG rating would be a way to narrow down those worthy of looking into further. devil
