Also, there shouldn't be any issues with arbitrage since there's no money/gg involved, but is there a chance of a trial run to see how many trades are happening unofficially?

I think that's doable. I'll do a trial run Thursday evening to see what the numbers are looking like.

I'll be running a test this evening to see how many trades are being made, and a list (which will be in spoilers for those of you that don't want to ruin the surprise) of users with at least one trade.

As a side note, I did more algorithm related reading than I ever thought I would do last night. I had originally set the number of iterations to 40 - which means the algorithm would run 40 times to find the maximum number of users (which is the metric we're looking to maximize) who would have at least one trade.

But upon reading more about how the algorithm works, and given the size of our Math Trade, I am considering bumping the number of iterations up to 200. The algorithm will still run very quickly, and the TradeMaximizer will select the result set from that 200 iterations which allows the largest number of people to participate.

Okay, folks. So here are some VERY UNOFFICIAL PRELIMINARY TEASERS. These can and probably will change, especially once the missing folks get their wants in.

As of 6:15PM today, we have the following from the submitted wantlists:

- MISSING 38 WANTS (19.8%) FROM 4 USER(s) (20%)
- Num trades = 24 of 153 items (15.7%)
- Approximately 75% of users who have submitted their wantlists currently have at least one trade.

Click below if you would like to see if you're trading. Again, hypothetically. If you are on this list, you still might not trade once all the lists are in:

Are you planning on sending Geek Mail to those who haven't submitted wants yet? I messed up my first math trade because of not knowing how to submit wants.

Posted where? I'm a noob to math trades. From the Geekmail, I don't think I ended up having a trade.
