I've been waiting for the next UK maths trade since the last (two months?) but I'm currently on my honeymoon until 9th August. When does this take place? I'm hoping I'm back to take part.

EDIT: Saw the other post so I should be able to take place. Best re-read what I'm doing as this is my first rodeo.

Soooooooo excited for this Math trade again!

I just hope that he people is patient enough as it is August and some of us (like me) will be on Holiday the second half of the month.

Hope nobody get too upset with receiving games in September.

As ever, I'm sure no-one will mind but communicate this once you have a trade. I'd even put it in the listing to be doubly sure

I'm not convinced it's fair to take part in a trade if you won't be able to ship until the subsequent month.

At least you should state it in the item description, but bear in mind some people use the olwg to choose games, and may not notice it.


WOW. Really?

Last UK Math trade started on 8th and people started to send packages on 22nd. There were people who send the packages at beginning of July.
But OK, I will state in my entries that I will not ship the games till first couple of days of September.

People usually don't mind a week or two's delay as long as it is communicated well.

That's what I thought Sharon
I definitely, would understand it as if the Math trade was in Christmas time or Easter.

Cheers!

I'm more than happy to cull games, I could cut my collection in half if I wanted, but my fiancee has a habit of saving them

Item for Geeklist "Math Trade Walkthrough/FAQ for newbies"

P.S.: As always, you can already add your old MT items to the current math trade geeklist manually with the OLWLG.

I'm not sure what you're saying here. The math trade itself does not appear to be up on the olwlg yet.

Well, he pointed you towards a FAQ where your question is answered
("Why is the math trade not showing up in the OLWLG, or showing up as a no-ship math trade?

Simply put, the OLWLG isn't live. It has to be synced by a person. Once the trade shows up, it will default to a no-ship math trade, and JeffyJeff (the OLWLG manager) has to change it to a shipping math trade.

In either case, don't sweat it. Just wait a day, and check back. Even if the trade isn't showing up in the OLWLG, you can still submit items to the trade list. They'll show up in the OLWLG when the trade is all synced up")

The second link provided by Karsten let's you add your games more easily if you had already offered them in a previous MT.

(It sometimes helps to just trust people and click a link.)

The most prominent reason why you'd need the OLWLG at this stage is to add your old items from previous Math trades, hence the P.S. - otherwise, the question that you've asked is coming up every time for every Math trade, so I pointed to the Newbie FAQ for Math trades where it has been answered.

I did click the link. I just read the wrong portion :D

Anyway, I get it now.
