The OLWLG site requires the trade moderator to resync the site with the list; I have no idea why this isn't automatic. Please try to do this daily if possible. (I'm adding some trade items as I check boxes to make sure my data on BGG is accurate and I don't want to accidentally add things twice. The OLWLG can help with that, but only if it resyncs regularly. It also helps people start work on their trade lists and track questions about their offers.)

Just synced it. I need to put in a reminder for myself to do it 1-2x per day. It can take 30 seconds on his server, so he wants us to do it only 1-2 X per day to reduce strain.

Thanks for the reminder!

Make that 11pm tonight (and Wednesday night) because I got EST/EDT wrong when I set it up. I'll sync the list after it closes at 11pm tonight.

And we hit 1000 after all!

The list is closed for submissions, and has been synced, so you should be able to see everything.

Deadline for submitting your wantlists - Wednesday 11pm.

DON'T FORGET TO SUBMIT YOUR WANTLIST ALL THE WAY!

If you don't get a confirmation GeekMail from JeffyJeff, you didn't finish it properly and probably didn't hit submit.

You can submit and re-submit as many times as you want, and only the final one counts, so do one early just to make sure.

It's been a couple months since I participated in a math trade but the new ability to set values to your items and auto fill the boxes based on values you set to other people's items has been a game changer.

Only went up 1% to 85% submitted as of 8:30.

Don't suppose we've ever had 100% users submitted?

I've seen it be close. I've messaged them again, and know some said they would work on it, but haven't seen them do it yet. Hoping for soon.

Ticking up a bit - at 88% with 8 users to go, for just over 100 of the items.

Math trade noob here, can you elaborate on this feature?

In step 4 (edit want list), do you see those little text boxes under the names of each of the items you want? You can enter a numeric value to have it sort the list in that order.

I just figured this out now.

That feature has been in place for a while but now it's even more powerful.

If you click on this icon
you can assign values to your offers which will also sort them at the top.

Then in the header of the step 4 screen there is a link that if you click on, it will auto click the boxes for all other user's items that have been assigned a value equal to or lower than the values you assigned to your items.

Basically it does all the grunt work for you.

They have a few bonus minutes to get their wantlists in, while I make sure I've got everything set up right.

OK, no word from anyone - I'm going to lock it down and run it. Back in a bit - it's my first time doing this part.

And, it's official! Congrats on everyone who had a successful trade! Bring your games, etc upstairs at TABSCon between 12-12:30 on Saturday, and happy gaming there!

Don't forget to pay downstairs if you're just coming for the math trade - and why not stay and play?
