I had a comment about my copy of Age of Empires III listed in the trade and just replied to it. I'm copying here just in case it gets read here and not there. (I also GMd the individual who asked)

****

This is the 2007 edition. Because of the large box size and not many contents (this box seems way oversized for its contents) there is a slight cupping in the lid.

Also - I just happened to think about this; may not be anything, but since I don't have another to compare to I don't know; the pieces inside are contained inside baggies; i.e. no insert. I'm not sure if this game even came with an insert or not since I didn't buy it new. Just letting you know in case.
No insert.

We will probably have to get JeffyJeff to respond, but have you tried clicking back to step 3 and then going from there to step 4?
going back to step 3 doesn't "reset" anything... you really need to uncheck boxes, easier from step 4...

what boxes you need to uncheck depends on the type of "screw up"?

Did you check out Chris's geeklist w/screen shots on dup protection in the OLWLG at http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/32005 ?

edit: it's geeklist items 6, 7 and 8 I think that talk about the warnings and how to resolve them

Did you start creating your want lists before creating the "duplicate protection" item (for King of Siam)? If you did, you'll have to go back to the King of Siam items that you had already clicked, and unclick them. This is why I like to wait until the list is closed before I start clicking check boxes.

Yup I did. Been using dupe protection for a longtime. I'm not seeing the error but I'm getting the red error message.. I'm sure it's one check box I'm missing somewhere.

Can you cut/paste the exact text of the warning? You sure it's not the one described at http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/32005/item/671997#item...

Warning! Empty Dummy Items Being Used
The dummy item(s) "KoS" have empty want lists, but are wanted by your real items.

That's covered by http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/32005/item/671994#item... but the solution there actually may not be the solution you want... how did you create the dummy item KoS? full manual or the "simpler way"? If the latter, it probably means you didn't check the box "Check here to auto add corresponding game items to the pseudo items" at the time you created it.

What you probably really want to do is to find light green background "column" with the dummy item for KoS (King of Siam) and check the boxes in that intersect with the rows for the real "King of Siam" items in the math trade. If any other boxes were checked in those rows you may need to uncheck them or you'll probably end up with one of the other warnings.

double check the "official format" or "summary" afterwards to see if you have what you want.

edit: actually what Chris has listed there for the solution is correct... I just misread it... I think by "check off" it's mean to "check the boxes" (vs. unchecking which is how I read it).

I've tried everything it worked fine for T&E duplicated but when I click for summary the king of siam duplicate is still empty! I've checked the green row boxes.

I'm so frustrated I MT all the time and have never had a problem like this.

Hmm, you may be looking at cached pages in your browser. I just went into step 4 as you and things look good, no warnings and in the summary:

"King of Siam" [KoS-]
1. "King of Siam" rsolow [791665-837]
2. "King of Siam" hvogel [792156-903]

what browser (and browser version) are you using? See if you can clear your browsers cache?

edit: one problem I still see... you don't have ANY of my items on your want list(s)

it's still weird your browser was caching... browsers shouldn't be caching form submission results, especially POST method style. What browser (and version and OS) are you using?

Windows XP Media. IE 7 I believe. Leave it to me to be the 1 out of a million with an issue. Haha. Let me go tip you now.

Hey Jeff, Out of curiosity can you log into the want list generator as anyone you want?? That could get interesting for you. Haha!

Argh, I only have IE6.something ... I hope IE7 isn't caching POST results, they have likely broken the use of lots of sites. Maybe it's some kind of IE option.

It's a pain to do it (because I need to lookup your unique user id, the one in the login link you get), but I've needed to do it now and then to help folks like yourself (I could ask 1,000 questions, but often just one look is worth a thousand words).

Yup I'm hoping the problem was a one time fluke; and am blaming it on the first winter storm of the year and not some dreaded IE 7 problem. If it happens in the next trade I'll uninstall IE 7. Math trades are more important!

For anyone interested in the Merchant of Venus I have listed (item #883), I've determined that the two missing counters are, indeed, the two blank grey counters. (There are actually three blank counters; the smaller white blank *is* included.)

Do you have an official summary posted somewhere? I've tried to use the OWLG but it only shows item #908 instead of the whole list. It had shown the entire list earlier when I started compiling my list, but now it is not helping me at all. I did a quick search for the summary, but honestly, with avalanche of posts and rules and comments and whatnot, I did not see it.

Thanks!

Steve, look at the top of the page in the OLWLG. It says:

"You are only viewing new items added since you last viewed this page. If you would like to view the entire list click here"

If you are using IE7 Jeffy commented earlier that there may be a cache issue.
