The Springtime Math Trade - RESULTS POSTED (See discussion)

DO NOT DELETE ITEMS ONCE YOU HAVE POSTED THEM
For many of us, it\'s near the end of our spring semesters of school--be it college, high school, elementary school, or preschool. (I\'ll leave it to you to judge who belongs where.)
But that\'s not why we\'re having a math trade. Instead, we\'re having one because it\'s The Right Thing To Do.
Submissions posted no later than (including sweeteners): Thursday, April 17, 5:00pm MST (PDT)
Summary of submissions posted (by me): Thursday, April 17, 11:30pm MST (PDT) (or earlier--but no guarantees)
Want lists due: Sunday, April 20, 6:00pm MST (PDT)
Results posted: Sunday, April 20, 10:00pm MST (PDT) (or earlier)
These dates and times are set in stone. They are selfishly set to work around my own schedule. Keep in mind that you have a four-hour window to verify your want lists on Sunday night. I will make no exceptions to these dates or times unless something catastrophic happens. (In the past, I\'ve even disallowed wants lists from users whose games I personally wanted.)
Method of finding trades
We will be using TradeMaximizer with the following options:
* Linear Priorities
* Duplicate Protection
For details on TradeMaximizer, including how to use linear priorities and duplicate protection, consult its Wiki page:
I will post the formatting required once the final entries are in. In addition, I will be the sole person running TradeMaximizer, and my results (open to public scrutiny, of course) will be the official ones.
There are no rules. I tire easily of them. Well, there\'s one rule: You must trade geek items only. That is, games are obviously preferred, but DVDs, video games, computer hardware and software, and so on are fine. Check with me if you\'re uncertain. However, I ask that you be sensible; don\'t list fifteen VGA cables and expect me to be pleased.
GeekGold arbitrage? I don\'t care one way or the other. It is allowed.
Gift certificates? Allowed, but with restrictions. If you don\'t like that, please run your own math trade.
* Only one gift certificate may be offered per person.
* Gift certificates may be for any amount.
* The gift certificate must be for a single store only (in other words, no \"$25 to any of the following 10 stores...\").
How to List
* Please list sweeteners using either the GAMEID formatting (preferred, for example: [ GAMEID=3076 ], but without the spaces) or a link to the game\'s page (this will look like http://www.boardgamegeek.com/game/3076).
* You must accurately describe your game\'s condition, language, edition, etc.
* You should choose a photo that best represents the game you are trading (language, edition, and the like). If there are none suitable in the database, pick the one that\'s closest and make a note in your item listing. In general, hitting the Tab key to leave the GAMEID field, then tabbing out of the Image field, will choose the \"representative\" image. This is often exactly what you want.
* You must submit a want list for each game you are offering. If you don\'t want to trade, submit a blank list.
* Traders from all countries are allowed. Specify your restrictions on shipping in your listing. I encourage, but do not require, setting your shipping policies to allow for all countries. An easy way to keep things under control is to set an upper bound on the cost you\'re willing to pay.
* I reserve the right to remove games from the list for whatever reason, especially those which I feel violate the spirit of this math trade. If you are on the bad traders list, your games will be removed.
* Use the related forum thread for questions and discussions of this math trade (however, for questions on individual items, please leave comments on the item itself, here on the list).
* Do not submit want lists until the summary has been posted. They will most likely be deleted.
* If you are unsure of how to construct your want lists, please wait until the submission period has closed, and then ask questions in the forum thread.
