    So I just did a test with another user and realised that if you receive an offer and send a message to let them know why you're declining and then click the 'reject offer' button the other person never gets to see the message you sent them, all they see is the offer rejected because the recently closed offers section doesn't have a trade history button and there is no digital record sent to our email when you receive a message.
    Is there a way we can get this fixed? Maybe the 'view history' button could show up on any closed/rejected trades if there are messages attached to them?

    I just know that it means the last few trades I've rejected haven't seen the messages I wrote to them and that makes me feel bad :(

    Edit: PS if Dman3003 is on here with a different username, Overkill did send you a follow up message explaining that his proxy did end up trading his Chandras away at Aus but you probably didn't see it because he closed the offer, sorry, he didn't just cold reject you I swear!

    Can confirm. I recently rejected a couple offers only after they responded to my note about why.

    Yep I have noticed this, I will actually update that right now, as I've also rejected a few offers and felt bad it was reasonless. It also doesn't really help new traders to just be rejected without knowing what might have been the cause.

    Ok done.

    You can now view the history of Closed offers (if they had two participants), it will also notify the other person of unseen messages as normal and it will date stamp the time you declined.

    Note: It will turn read-only when you close it, so if you have something to say, do so before closing it. When I have more time, I think I'll just ask when closing it "Would you like to leave a reason?", so you don't have to remember this step.

    Hey grge who drew this image for you guys? I'm wondering if I can get hold of a higher quality file to pull the red stamp part of it out.

    Also the club PA pin on the site could use a better image than the photo version we have now. How about this one from the official site? Need it resized at all?

    It's kinda annoying how the official site still has a few pin images that are photos and not the official artwork.

    Talk to @Manic2k‌ about the image. Elytian drew them, so they have the originals.

    Yeah I've just been talking to fayt about his copy and he just gave me the version he made.

    There was actually 3 logo options for the site, ultimately the stamp one.

    Here's a pack of all 3 in a larger size: https://dropbox.com/s/33o7bhardn8rzta/logopack.zip?dl=0

    Also what would have happened without Elytian....*cough* grgemonkey is an awesome artist *cough*

    Edit: I'll update the pin images on the site, Aus Anniv also looks stupidly small against the other Anniv pins.

    Thanks for the image updates!

    Any chance we could make the profile link on our profile pages clickable? Sometimes you just want to open the public view real quick to check something.

    You bet, should be there now.

    Thanks.

    While I've got your attention, how about some blank space at the bottom of the profile page under the list of pins? I always want to scroll down further so I can look at the bottom pins in the middle of my screen.

    EDIT:

    I cleaned up fayt's version of this a bit:

    Do you guys ( @Manic2k ) know that "International" was spelt wrong on that?

    No I never looked at it that hard haha! Whoops!

    As for the profile page, I can but also I'm just redoing that whole screen...I'm not really a fan of massive text grid for pin collecting, it's just serving a functional purpose atm.

    Oh, well then never mind.

    I just noticed that you can't start a discussion with someone after you claim their trade from the trading post. I understand not being able to alter it, but being able to ask some questions might be useful.

    Although I guess that ability opens up after they reply?

  • grgemonkeygrgemonkey Registered User regular
    Mostly because claims are not revealed to the owner until the moment they attempt to claim one, then they're shown a claim at random and can't see the next until they reject the one they're viewing. It's a system in place to keep from always bias trading the claimer with the highest score or rejecting a claim "to see who else might come along" etc

    There are solutions, like allowing public anonymous questions. There is also still plans for a different kind of trading post, that's more negotiable and can feature this sort of discussion options.

    I just wanted at least one part of the site to be like, "This is the offer, take it or don't". The Trading Post system is a lot bigger than the actual tab, internally it runs the trades of the whole site, you just see certain trade types in certain areas etc, so it will expand for sure :)

    Ok part 1 of the email system is live.

    Basically I updated the "My Trades" section to hopefully be more friendly, each type of trade is now sectioned so you can easier find what you're looking for. I think it also makes it easier to spot new activity, I also made it more obvious when you have activity in a tab so you don't have to go searching for trades all the time. You should find any trade with recent activity at the top of the list and you'll also notice a little coloured bar on top of tabs if a trade in them is waiting for your attention.

    On the boring side of things. Each tab is also accessible by URL now (which you can bookmark if you're so inclined), so really the trick is I can point you to a more specific spot from the emails you'll be getting :)

    Part 2 will be pretty much the emails, at longgggg last haha

    Fixed, thanks. Bad ordering of conditional statements, you had reason to view the offer, as you were once involved in it but it should only show it to you as "Closed". Regardless, you wouldn't have been able to do anything with it or view the message history, as other guards would have prevented that.

    Any chance we can actually make it so we can view "Archived" trades, or should we just change the archive button to "delete"?

  • grgemonkeygrgemonkey Registered User regular

    Sure, that can be arranged. It was just ugly before because of the giant list but now I can hide it behind a tab and not load it until you click it. So that'll work.

    So both Midas and Mot (as well as a few others off the page) turn up twice here.

    You can only select one of them though. Maybe because they offer both years for the core set I'm searching for?

    The pals section is a bit empty. Could it not list everyone with an account? Random browsing would be fun, kind of like peering at their lanyards at PAX.

    Also I want to see who has done the most trades so I know who I need to beat!

  • grgemonkeygrgemonkey Registered User regular
    D.Choy is the one to beat but you got some work catching ;)

    As for general improvements, higher priority features keep popping up. The next few things on the horizon are: Emails, pin counts, more personalised profiles, pinny groups profiles, universal search (searches all pin availability on the site to find you a pin).

    After that, smaller things can start being done. It sounds odd but every time you detour to do a small thing, you push the bigger features out further and further.

    So I made a claim on a trade on the trading post. Turns out the user didn't have one of the pins, so I just sent them a new direct trade offer without it, but it doesn't look like we have any way of both graciously backing out of the first one without it either being a positive or neutral trade.
