Posting an Item
Boardgames, boardgame related items, Video Games, RPG items and non-gaming nerdy items are all permitted.
Non-game entries must be added as "Outside the Scope of BGG", "Miscellaneous Game Merchandise" or "Miscellaneous Game Accessory" and must include the +altname+ brief description -altname- format in the description of your item to ensure they appear properly in the OLWLG.
Gift Certificates may be included only if they are purchased online and deliverable by email. Cash substitutions are NOT permitted.
Condition of the item(s) must be described as accurately as possible. Game descriptions should include the condition of the box, the language and edition of the game, and if any components are missing and/or damaged. If it is not otherwise specified, the game must be complete, in like-new condition and be the most recent English edition.
To include multiple identical items, including gift certificates of the same value, copy the following text into the description of your item, updating for how many copies you would like to include.
Sweeteners must be listed using the "Insert Geek Link" dropdown or by manually inserting the GAMEID using BGG formatting to have them show up in the OLWLG properly.
The OLWLG is updated manually. Please allow up to 24 hours for submitted items to be visible on the OLWLG.
During the Math Trade
Edits must be clearly identified by striking out the original text or clearly identifying new information as an "Edit:" note at the bottom of the post. Edits that may result in someone's interest in your item changing are not permitted.
Do NOT delete any entries or sweeteners after they have been listed. If you've traded an item away or decided to keep it, submit a blank want list for that entry.
You are required to periodically check your entries for comments and respond to them appropriately. The OLWLG will let you know if any of your items have unanswered comments.
Use of the OLWLG (On-Line Want List Generator) is required for this trade. If you have never used the OLWLG tool before, please read the wiki page and check out the following links. Please consider tipping JeffyJeff some GG for his ongoing support.

Working on your want list early is advised. You can always make changes and resubmit anytime before the want list submission deadline.
Creating want lists is not the same as submitting them. A GeekMail message will be sent when your want list is received. If you don't get this message in your BGG inbox, your want lists haven't been submitted.
The trade software usually takes about 10 minutes to run. A link to the results will be posted in the discussion thread as soon as it is available on the OLWLG.
Questions, Comments, Concerns
Anyone who disregards these rules, or behaves disrespectfully, will have their comments deleted and/or will have a blank want list submitted on their behalf.
Please post in the discussion thread if you have any questions or comments. If you have any concerns about a particular item or situation, please send a geekmail message to the organizer.
Have fun and good luck!
