Hi

Loving BGG and all that it does and just in the process of doing my first Geek Trade

Couple of questions I cant find answers to are:

Is there a way to get my geek mails forwarded to my normal Gmail account so I get notified in my normal mail inbox?

and I have created my collection of games list and stuff I want to trade. On the button that says find trades automatically nothing comes up but when I go manually looking I find stuff in my collection that others want with something in their collection that I want so a bit confused why the auto thing is not picking them up? Hope that makes sense....

Final question is when looking for people to trade with is their a way to filter the country they are in?

Cheers
Barry

Yes. Go to your Geekmail, then click Settings on the left. You'll see an option to forward to your email address.

Are the games you want listed as Wishlist in your collection? Or Want in Trade? As far as I know it will only pick up matches if you have it marked as Want in Trade, but not if it is only on your Wishlist. Same goes for others if they only have items on their Wishlist and not marked as Want in Trade.

When you go to Trades you want Custom Search. That will allow you to select specific countries.

The filter i get now thats great. What I was doing was typing in a game then going down and seeing who had it for trade and then trawling through the list!!
