Hey, how did I get the first item? I've never been nearer the start than about page 23 before!

When our geeklist is up on the
http://bgg.activityclub.org/olwlg/

try the automated way to transfer your items from previous trades into the current one:



After clicking on the icon, select a previous trade from the dropdown list and press submit. Then you can easily transfer the entries of your choice into the current trade by pressing the corresponding buttons. This will save you a lot of time.

Actually you don't have to wait for it to be in the OLWLG to add items to the geeklist from your collection or any other MT - use this link:

http://bgg.activityclub.org/olwlg/addmygames.cgi?listid=1884...

where listid=188438 is the id of the geeklist in question, it works for any MT geeklist if you add the right number.

My wife has instructed me to acquire Kolejka. Maybe there are some Poles out there who have this game collecting dust on the shelf?



Thanks in advance!

There aren't so many Poles participating in this trade, but they do have their own Maths Trade. Kolejka is due for a re-release sometime soon (as an International edition) so keep your eyes open - I don't know what 'soon' means in Poland, but there's been an agreement for a large number of copies to be printed according to the forum. I don't know about the Ogonek expansion, though.

The rules say:
Quote:
If you change your mind about the game you are trading please DO NOT REMOVE IT FROM THE TRADE. Edit the entry to say that you are no longer trading the game, but keep the item in place as deleted items can cause a lot of complications when running the trade.


It makes it even easier for the others if you change the item to "Outside the scope of BGG" and add "+altname+ Item removed -altname-".

This is my first math trade and by accident I put up the same game twice.
Number 594 and number 602. 602 is the correct one and I added that one with olwlg. How can I correctly remove 594?

Just edit the item and replace with this:
+altname+ Sid Meier's Civilization: The Boardgame -altname-
?

Thanks in advance for your reply.

Change the game itself to 'Outside Scope' ( edit the item and either type 23953 into the GameId box or in the box where the game name appears start typing "outside scope" and the right entry will appear as a drop-down which you can select).

Then delete the item text and write

+altname+ Nothing. -altname- or
+altname+ Duplicate removed -altname- or

something similar

Thanks in advance for your reply.

Leave one of them in place as it is (#602).

Change the "game" of the other (#594) from "Sid Meiers Civ.." to "Outside the Scope of BGG" by editing the geeklist item. After that, delete the original description (such as language, version etc.) and insert the following line:

+altname+ Item removed -altname-

That's it.
(The words between "+altname+" and "-altname-" become the new name for the OLWLG. Altname tags don't work with normal board games as geeklist items.)


(Edit: What enoon wrote is perfectly correct and basically identical to what I said.)

Wantlist submission now open for 1 week.

Girls and guys, please use the methods depicted below to doublecheck that you are extremely happy with your wantlists.



In all courtesy, PLEASE DO NOT ASK ME FOR A RERUN.
This is a complicated process that involves many people and it is hard to handle if we all do not commit to our wantlists. I humbly ask for your cooperation in this matter.

Good luck to all!

PS we have reached a whopping 1220 items! so don't leave submitting your wantlist for the last minute.

Before I check if I managed any trades (fingers crossed). I just wanted to thank Dimitris for running the math trade.

As an absolute newbie to this, apart from "YAY GOT SOME TRADES!!!!" ...

... after the confirmation we should start contacting people to see where to send the stuff, right? I got a trade request from Parabellum76 wanting to send me a game, so I guess the trade functionality here is the best way to do so, right?

Yep, I'm nervous, is my first trade

Correct. BUT!
Wait till the "all clear" comes from the organizer of the trade. There is usually a 24h period for complaints etc. which sometimes can lead to a rerun.

Indeed, although as Dimitris put it above:

Let's hope for a swift and easy final word later on!

If we had, it'd be announced either here or in the main thread or both.

not all clear yet. there is a problem in a trade that seems it's going to be resolved soon -I am waiting to hear from 2 users who are in the process of working it out- so please refrain from proceeding with the transactions until further notice.
