Can somebody help with instruction how to install Checkboxmate or owlito to Firefox. All what it download is some UserScript. And I dont know what to do with it.

It's been a while since I've done it, but I think this is what I did:

1) Download the Greasemonkey add-on for Firefox
2) Download Checkboxmate for Greasemonkey userscript
3) I think Checkboxmate automatically shows up as active in the Greasemonkey add-on (i.e., if you click the monkey's face, you should see "Greasemonkey is active" and, further down, "Checkboxmate for Greasemonkey"
4) Go to the page with the checkboxes. Click and hold in a checkbox, and then drag your mouse around. You should be drawing a box. When you let go of the click, all checkboxes within the box you drew should be checked.

I can confirm this works in Firefox(Quantum) 64-bit

For US folks, if you are mailing a multi tile promo, make sure to package it so it can not shift around.

I had a promo come back to me postage due (months after I had already paid my trade partner for the lost promos). I was first baffled because I had a postal clerk figure out the postage. Finally it dawned on me that the way I packed the promos, they were under the 1/4 inch guildline, later they shifted in the package to a configuration that was greater than 1/4 inch requiring the small packet fee .

Small greeting cards with a small envelope and ziplock bags with tape, help keep tiles from moving around.

So we are at just under 80%, with < 24 hours to go. Perfect time for a trial run, right? whistle

Yeah, I typically don't publish trial runs. I find that it's usually a lose lose proposition - people that are on the trial list and end up off the final list get extra disappointed, and sometimes people that are NOT on the trial list loosen their wants and end up with trader's remorse.

I will usually do ONE test run myself very early on before too many people submit to make sure nothing is broken, but that's really about it. I also don't want there to be an appearance that I am running trials and using it to tweak my wants, which is why I typically will either submit my wants RIGHT AWAY when the trade starts, or wait until the very end and do it just once.

Nice. Only 17 people haven't submitted. And one of them is matt who always submits last so... 16 people out of 197. Even if they don't submit that seems like a pretty decent trade result to me.

I hope they do though because about half of them have something I am trying to trade for. hahahaha.

TradeMax is running. I'll post tentative results as soon as I have them.

Apologies to anyone who may have wanted anything I had up for offer - I simply didn't have the time to go through the list and submit any wants for myself, so I am one of those sad few who didn't submit wants.

I am so sorry to hear that. Thank you for taking time out of your busy life to organize this trade. Hopefully next time you will have time to participate! (I still face palm every month at the time I spend on MTsshake)

I didn't think it normally took this long. Something either came up irl with Matt probably or something is wrong/delayed with the results.

It took a little bit longer than I expected to run, and then because of the new way the OLWLG does its lists through wants and results, it took me a REALLY long time to confirm that there was no arbitrage as my old "grep" script didn't work anymore.

Tentative results are up, usual 24 hour hold applies. I'll announce the all clear tomorrow.

Matt needs to finalize the trade on OLWLG and then upload the files which provides this information to user.
