Hey all,

This is my first use of abecorn (coming from OLWLG) and am getting a little confused.

1) The abecorn website shows 'Feb '18 Perpetual Shipping Trade (Ends 2/28)' as having 14 days, 11 hours, 40 minutes, xx seconds left. Shouldn't this have ended yesterday? I don't see any "results page" on abecorn.

2) I see a results post higher up in this thread, but it's called 'Rotten Extension: 2018.March.01 5:02: AM (Final Results)'. Are these the results I am looking for? If so, what is up with the naming convention?

3) I found results called 'Kind Forehead: 2018.February.28 06:11 PM (Final Results)', but there were only 2 people trading to each other in it. What's up with that?

4) Seriously, what is up with the naming convention? Rotten Extension/Kind Forehead/Reliable Opposition/Precise Wage/etc... I am so confused.

Any clarification is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Yes, after the trade ends, I have to go in and edit the name. I just changed it to March.

The results page for all of the trade is on
https://www.boardgamegeek.com/guild/2679

The results page on abecorn only appears to those involved in the trade. It got confusing for non-participants when they got messages about a trade they weren't in. (http://trade.abecorn.com/#/trade/5a97894edd7491003c711edf)

Yes that link I posted goes to the BGG abecorn results page. The naming convention creates computer generated random 2 word phrases.

Some people have time constraints or absolutely must have something, so direct trades are an option. A direct offer can only be made if the owner initiates the trade based on what other's are directly offering for their game. Compared to how BGG does it by making non-value want comparisons in an attempt to find a match.

It got boring and tedious to repeat a string of dates that were similar to another string of dates to try and describe/reference a trade. People have generally tended to relate/remember more with the explicit two word phrases than the string of dates/times/locations.

Thank you!

So if we select USPS we actually go to USPS and not Fedex, right?

Hi there! I'm really confused! So I have the shipping labels up, all filled in. I hit "price quote" and nothing happens. I hit "generate label" and abecorn tells me, "To receive your label send $x.xx via PayPal to info@abecorn.com or venmo @bienardo." Okay, so. I do that? Since there isn't a direct link on the abecorn page, I have to go to Paypal itself... How will that translate to abecorn knowing that I have paid for it? I was hoping to get these in the mail today, but the post office closes in just a few hours.

Please advise. Apologies for being incompetent haha.

Make sure you're logged in when you hit quote (We don't have the no login functionality working yet). When you hit generate label and have selected a quote, it emails me your email, postage value and service, and a link to autogenerate the label for you. After you pay I just match name and price together.

Yes, I'm logged in. My Paypal has a different email. I already sent you the money for one package, because I am all confused. I can give you the Paypal order number for that?
