If anyone volunteers from Madison, I'll let you know. As of now, it doesn't look like its going to happen, as nobody seemed interested during yesterday's math trade.
Rich - I'll make the same offer as I have to Pete. If someone is coming to Milwaukee, finding a proxy is no problem.

Re: Fire & Ice Con 2012 - A no-ship math trade
I am trying to upload some photos of my Magic Realm game. However, each time I try to upload I receive a message saying, "An Error Occurred during the upload." I tried several times using both versions of the uploader. I also cleared my cache and restarted my browser. The weird thing is that I tried to upload a set of 9 images. Four uploaded fine, but the others produced an error.

I even tried to upload them one at a time and I tried renaming the photo. Perhaps I will attempt to resize them and then try again.

Strange.

edit: NM. Resize worked like a charm.

Two days to go, 367 items. It looks like we'll fall well short of the past two years, but at least the quality of the items is really very high.

2010 - 718 items, 248 trades (35.9%)
2011 - 719 items, 181 trades (24.7%)

Unfortunately the lack of a proxy this year from Northern Illinois and Madison is helping to keeping the totals down.

Jack,

Thanks for the offer, but it looks like I'm not going to be able to make the trip. Good luck with the trade!

I'll submit a blank list for my stuff.

I wish I could list items in this one, but the deadlines just didn't work around my vacation.

I'll have a bunch for the Hoopla Math Trade in May. (Janesville, WI)

Re: Fire & Ice Con 2012 - A no-ship math trade
That's it. 533 items. Not as many items as the past couple of years but still a good total. The important thing is the trade percentage.

Re: Fire & Ice Con 2012 - A no-ship math trade
OK - I'm done fiddling with my want lists and have run an update. We have about half of the items in.

So far 10 people who have submitted their want lists are making at least one trade, 2 are not (that's after removing Pete, who submitted a blank list for his one item due to lack of a proxy).

27 items out of 265 are changing hands right now (10.2%).

It's low but will hopefully climb as people submit more want lists and everyone remembers that you don't have to pay shipping costs to make trades (which makes trading down a little to get something you're interested in or just rotating trade stock a viable thing to do).

Re: Fire & Ice Con 2012 - A no-ship math trade
Just a reminder to everyone... Jack will be my proxy. I can't make it to F&I because my Mom will be in town.

Have fun gaming (and cheat a little for me... but pretend you were confused. )

Re: Fire & Ice Con 2012 - A no-ship math trade
We have about 55% if the items in.

So far 13 people who have submitted their want lists are making at least one trade, 2 are not (that's discounting Pete).

33 items out of 295 are changing hands right now (11.2%). We were briefly over 14% but then someone took some items off their want lists and we lost several trades. That's the way the trade chains go...

Re: Fire & Ice Con 2012 - A no-ship math trade
We have almost 70% if the items in.

So far 16 people who have submitted their want lists are making at least one trade, 1 is not (that's discounting Pete).

41 items out of 372 are changing hands right now (11.0%).

Our trade percentages are going in the wrong direction due to some short want lists as people - as is often the case - target certain items.

Strange, I added my list after the last update and apparently I made it worse!

Well, others submitted or updated their lists too - yours are actually pretty diverse compared to some, so don't feel bad...

Re: Fire & Ice Con 2012 - A no-ship math trade
25.5 hours to go...

# MISSING 107 WANTS (20%) FROM 6 USER(s) (23%):
# boathouselooper (20)
# colleens (10)
# cosine (21)
# Guardtroll (9)
# KLSnow (19)
# slaqr (28)


We have 80% if the items in.

So far 17 people who have submitted their want lists are making at least one trade, 2 are not (that's discounting Pete). One person who had been making trades is now being shut out.

45 items out of 427 are changing hands right now (10.5%).

Our trade percentages are still going in the wrong direction. Some people have trimmed their wants a little, which hasn't helped the trade percentage much - but there's not much to be done about that I suppose.

There's been a very minor improvement actually...

# MISSING 69 WANTS (12.9%) FROM 4 USER(s) (15.3%):
# boathouselooper (20)
# cosine (21)
# Guardtroll (9)
# KLSnow (19)

So far 20 people who have submitted their want lists are making at least one trade, 1 is not (that's discounting Pete).

52 items out of 465 are changing hands right now (11.2%). That's a little disappointing compared to the previous trades for this event, but what can we do?

There are several out there who have no interest in rotating trade stock while there's no shipping cost to do so, have mature collections (i.e. fewer wants in general) and so are targeting a very short list of items. Unfortunately when people do that, they usually end up targeting the same items - some of which get blank want lists. That's everyone's right, and more importantly you shouldn't every make a swap you're unhappy with, but just be aware that one item added to a want list can sometimes open up a new trade chain with a lot more items changing hands (perhaps even more of yours).

Re: Fire & Ice Con 2012 - A no-ship math trade
# MISSING 49 WANTS (9.1%) FROM 3 USER(s) (11.5%):
# cosine (21)
# Guardtroll (9)
# KLSnow (19)

So far 21 people who have submitted their want lists are making at least one trade, 1 is not (that's discounting Pete).

63 items out of 486 are changing hands right now (13%). Still kind of low, and it would be nice if everyone manages to make at least one trade, but we're headed in the right direction again.

I will be out most of the afternoon but, for those who are interested, once I get in this evening I might provide a little information about how you're doing (at that particular moment), with no specific information whatsoever about what items are trading.

Requests for an update will only be honoured if sent by GM.
