    Yep, worked very well and the chat screen is a great addition to keep in contact.

    I would suggest the chat really needs a way to alert users of new msgs somehow.

    Emails might be too much, but maybe a popup when you visit the site again, or a blinking tab if you have it open in the background?

    Definitely on the agenda :)

    Btw fishfish, you should find your other trades if you scroll down in My Trades. Offers between pals are listed under Free Form.

    Edit: It's in the first post but I'll add it here too. It looks like the user accounts service is having issues. You may experience problems logging in, signing up or resetting passwords. Unfortunately this one is out of my control, it's a 3rd party service, just gotta ride it out :)

    Doesn't seem to be there. If I made it before the site updated would it be listed?

  • grgemonkeygrgemonkey Registered User regular
    Ah nope, the old site just sent straight to email, it didn't record anything :)

    The trading Post is a fantastical. I love the changes!!

  • Aussie BenAussie Ben AustraliaRegistered User regular
    Uh, I just got a trade offer sent to me with no pins offered to me, only pins for me to send. Can you make sure that a pin offer has at least one both in send/receive before it can be put up?

    Lets talk favicons again.

    I think the pacman loading pic might work. You could even use the animated version, but those tend to be distracting.

    Have you considered letting people add comments to pins? Given the earlier bellyaching in the trading post thread about bad offers for rare pins, it might help to let people call out what they'd be willing to consider in trade.

    You can't offer anything on the sites Trading Post. You either accept the trade or you don't, that's how I'm combating the bad offers :) Rare pins are better off there as a long standing offer of what you actually want for it, people can search for it.

    The Available/Want lists I think I need to keep as flexible as possible or there will be no part of the site where one can freely create any trade. I think it might have to come as the price to pay, that if you're marking something rare as available, you will get swarmed. I don't think this much is different to trading in person either.

    That said, I plan on implementing something along the lines of what @Ayefkay suggested, where you can specify a trade on the Trading Post as negotiable and I think the easiest thing here is to have you add a comment to what sort of trades you're after, rather than me building strict rules. So in a way, I think you'll get the effect your after in one portion of the site or another.

    Unless I've misunderstood? :)

    I think we're close. :) I just kind of like the idea of being able to mouse over someone's pin in the trade builder and see if there are any restrictions/suggestions attached to it before offering a trade. The site shouldn't stop me from making a freeform offer, but I'd much prefer to make an informed offer than a blind one.

    Edit: Just to be clear I'm taking about free-for-all trade builder, not the trading post on the site. When I referred to trading post earlier, I was calling out the thread by that name in this forum, not the site feature.

  • grgemonkeygrgemonkey Registered User regular
    Hmm ah right, I see what you mean now.

    Not an actual restriction, just a suggestion. Yeah I can see that happening! Can't say when then though :)

    Even if you add a simple comment section when creating an offer so people can specify how they would trade their pins should be fine

    You can't withdraw an offer, it would be great if you could. I just tested by offering to trade my lookouts pin for a DLC pin but can't delete it. Can that be a feature for the future?

    @midas244 Go to my trades and there is an option to remove the offer. My trades is located on the top of the screen.

    Assuming everyone using the site has the core gabe, it looks like Ayefkay and myself are the first people to complete a trade on it (based on users with that pin not having any feedback yet).

    SUCK IT, OTHER PEOPLE!

    Oh, also; When I click on Ayefkay's username on the trading page it opens his feedback history but all it shows is pacman going nuts.

    Probably lost connection to the database or some other such error. I tried both of you and it seems ok now.

    Try refreshing the pop-up (ctrl+r with it active) or re-opening it.

    Hmm, I can get it work in IE, but not firefox, even after restarting with all my addon's and grease-monkey scripts turned off. Not sure what could be causing it.

    Huh, I can even get it work in Tor. Maybe I need a fresh install.

    BUT MY EXTENSIONS!!

    Nah don't go to all that trouble.

    Looks like a Firefox only issue, I'm also having the same problem. I'll look in to it :) Should be fixed.

    Usually a database connection issue. In this case, the suggestion is correct, try again soon :)

    I tested it just now and seems ok, so let me know if it continues to plague you.

    Hmmm that's odd, two more offers went through after my test as well. So must be your account for some reason, have you tried logging out and logging back in? Maybe you're not authenticating properly.

    Yeah that happens all the time, can never figure out why but it has something to do with when I upload the podcast. I plan to move the podcast to the main site, it's currently hosted on the community site but it's not high on the list right now, since it works 95% of the time.
