It has to be manually added, after I submit it. It takes a few hours, usually.

It's on the OLWLG site, but it's listed at the bottom of the No-Ship Trades list.

Sometime in the past there was a leftovers math trade where I didn't have to rewrite the items that didn't trade. There was a way to just move them into the new trade.

Can I use that process for this leftovers trade? If so, how?

Thanks

Under the name of the trade in the OLWLG, the far left icon is a box with a green plus sign. That will let you import old math trade entries into the new one.

Rats! I somehow missed the original math trade of this despite subscribing to the math trade announcement thread.

I've added my leftovers from the recent wargames math trade. If I have time, I'll add some more non-wargame items.

That new OLWLG feature to easily copy over listings from previous math trades is the bee's knees!!!

I just used it for the first time myself and I agree with your sentiment. What a time-saver.

It's not new. (been there for years). It's the little icon of a box with a plus sign under the math trade name.

When using the box with the plus, it keeps you from retyping the descriptions, but you still have to enter each one individually as an item.

If I had 50 items in the first trade and 3 traded, is there a way to add all 47 remaining at one time, rather than individually?

Quite frankly I think it's rude and stupid that people won't ship to Alaska & Hawaii. I would understand that they only offer the first 5, 10 or $15(depending on the size of the game) but to flat out refuse is just ridiculous.

Where does it even give the option to offer something like that in the rules for the math trade? (it doesn't) It says you can ship it there or not. There's not any information about flat rate or first class and how it works the same to alaska and hawaii. Again, not the MT runner's job to create all that, but a bgg user from alaska could complile a little blurb, then go talk to the MT running thread about it.

It's not really fair to call someone rude or stupid for not researching the ins and outs of shipping when the instructions for the math trade give permission (and by doing so, almost encourage) a user to just leave those states out. (I'm pretty sure there's not even that many users there.

The biggest mess up I've had in a math trade was a bgg user flat out refusing to mail me my game because he thought he was allowed to apply that shipping policy (pay first X) to any address. Why? I dunno. But it didn't help that users make up their own little work around that, while all around great, resulted in me having a sixty dollar game stolen from me.

I ship everything Priority. It costs a few bucks extra, but the convenience is worth it. They deliver the boxes for free, I buy and print labels at home, and they pick up the packages for free. I don't have to leave the house! And it costs the same to any state, AK and HI included.

Y'all will note, however, that I won't offer anything that doesn't fit in a medium flat-rate box unless it's a no-ship trade.

The one that gets me is when people say they will only ship to the "lower 48."

Why on Earth will they ship everywhere except Alaska and Minnesota .

I just want to randomly pick two states and specifically exclude them.

Maybe California and Maryland. Those sound like good states to exclude for the next math trade.

haha.

I would love to require shipping everywhere. I really would. But there are several people who for some reason just will not consider shipping to two far away states even though it requires no further effort, just sometimes slightly higher fees. And I don't want to exclude them for the math trade, because some wouldn't join in in that case. Sucks for the people who love in those states, but there is not much I can do about it when math trades I general pretty much utilize the Same rules.

I think it's more the question of do you think it is right or not? Some people will not participate because of a ship the entire US requirement, but also some people are not able to participate fully because of the shipping restrictions some people place. So it's up to you to decide which way is right and then to declare it as the rule.
