OFFICIAL SUMMARY AND HOW TO SEND IN WANT LISTS

The official summary is at:

http://igor.thehuskygroup.com/bgg/mathtrades/springtime/offi...

My own want lists are at:

http://igor.thehuskygroup.com/bgg/mathtrades/springtime/carl...

(both are full URLs if you click on them)

HOW TO COMPOSE WANT LISTS

To compose your want lists, use the following example. Say my game is 0001-DOOMB, and I want 0034-ATTIL and 0035-RA. Thus, my want list would look like this:

(carl67lp) 0001-DOOMB : 0034-ATTIL 0035-RA

Note several required things:

1. Your username precedes every line and is in parentheses.

2. Your official entry code comes next, e.g. 0001-DOOMB.

3. Next is a space, then a colon, then another space.

4. Finally is your list of wants separated only with spaces (not with commas), unless you're using priorities with semicolons. I don't use them much, so consult the TradeMaximizer docs (or the forum thread) for more info).

But really, just make it easy on yourself--use the OLWLG and its "official format" feature. It'll make both of us happier.

NOTE: If I realize I've made a mistake I'll post again here, but in general it's best to wait until I've posted my own lists so that you can see the formatting.

SUBMITTING THROUGH OLWLG

You may submit through the OLWLG. If you do so, please do NOT send the want lists to me a second time. Whatever is in the OLWLG at the end of the trade will be considered official.

WANT LISTS

The want lists are at:

http://igor.thehuskygroup.com/bgg/mathtrades/springtime/want...

Keep in mind the file is around 1MB in size.

Everyone is asked to please double-check their wants for accuracy. This is not the time to make changes; this is the time to make sure that what you submitted is correct. Keep that in mind.

Any errors should be sent to me via GeekMail.

If things hold, we'll be at 849 trades.

FYI: Jeff's OLWLG will be available for this trade, but use of said tool (the OLWLG, not Jeff) will not be required.

The formatting for want lists/lot items will be similar to previous trades I have run (e.g., 00001-DOOM). (Note the five-digit padding I did? We're gonna break 10,000 items on this bad boy!)

Please note the dates. They will not be changed except in cases of extreme catastrophe.
Would an extreme catastrophe include closing for submission 4 days before it opens? I assume that's supposed to be April 17, not April 7?

It does in fact qualify as an extreme catastrophe, for if I didn't change it then we might have a rip in the very fabric of spacetime. I don't want that kind of weight on my shoulders.

Thanks. It used to be rare to get a photo of Laika where her eyes aren't red. The new(ish) Nikon D40x makes it easy to show those pretty blue eyes.

Finally! A good old fashioned no-holds barred Math Trade.

If we're trading games in lots, is there anything special we need to do to make sure the contents show up in the OWLG?

I believe the syntax is like so:

+altname+ Lot of 10,000 Maniacs -altname-

But it might only work on "Outside the Scope" items. Jeff can elaborate, if he has time.

I'll be late posting items due to wanting to see the results of an event in progress first, but I'll be there. The deadlines work out nicely for me...

My pleasure.

Incidentally, I did some calculations. At this moment, we're running around 1.7 postings per minute. At this rate, the number of entries expected in this trade is:

17,544

Anything short of that will be considered a failure.

Carl -

I may have missed this...

But is it possible to get the OLWLG up and running asap?

The speed this list is filling up makes me think it's going to be a big one. It's so much easier for me (and maybe others) to start building want lists early, so we're not overwhelmed when the list closes and submissions are due.

It's up to Jeff. I'll try to send him a GeekMail when I get home (I'm leaving work now and probably won't get home for a while).

EDIT: It looks like it's up.

I sure hope not.... the OLWLG would likely self destruct at even 1/2 that!

Hey guys, I would really like to participate, cause I've got a couple hot items (Formula De and Thurn and Taxis), but I don't really understand how to tell everyone what I want. Will someone enlighten a poor noob?

Have you read the guide linked from the main GeekList? If not, do that, and then ask specific questions. Math trades are a large subject otherwise.

I think you may be setting yoru expetations high already if you feel T&T (and FD for that matter) are "hot" items
