cash offerings... Re: Second Chance Math Trade Discussion
aksosa wrote:
OK, I just re-synched the OLWLG.
With that resync I also noticed items from at least two different folks offering CASH (via paypal)... checking your rules and I don't see anything that allows it unless someone interprets "etc" to mean cash.

For our regulars we know cash hasn't been allowed in MT's as it's definitely past the gray zone of gift cards in bypassing the BGG marketplace and BGG's 3% commision as cash like that is essentially a sale... anyone putting cash on their want lists and ends up with one of more of those would need to run those amounts through the BGG marketplace.

Personally I don't think it's a door that wants to be opened, at least not at this time or the flood gates will open....

Agreed 100%.

Just to be clear, cash is not allowed. I've commented on those items you're referring to, stating that as long as those items are only for giftcards we are good.

Agreed - not that it matters if I agree, as it's your event, but I know it's nice to hear.

At last count I saw five offending entries. Two offers of straight cash ($11 and $22) and three offers where the recipient could pick either a GC or cash. The first two items need to be withdrawn and the latter three either withdrawn or modified to be a GC offer only. In fact they should probably be withdrawn and then relisted as GC entries only, in case they're on want lists already and the person who is trying for them wanted the cash.

Good point. I've just edited my comment requesting that those items are relisted as giftcards only.

Re: Second Chance Math Trade Discussion
I noticed the comments on my listing.

I have edited my items to reflect WITHDRAWN - BLANK WANTLIST WILL BE SUBMITTED. It felt like a gray area and I am OK with withdrawing and relisting as a gift certificate, if I desire.

I apologize for letting the door open and perhaps confusing others who posted after me. I also hope no one selects these items on their wantlists.

Still relative new to math trades. I am sorry.

No worries. We were all newbies at one point. Anyway, I'm happy to have you aboard. Good luck!

I just got back from having 3 wisdom teeth pulled so I'll be in the rest of the night. I made the mistake of not eating before my appointment and and a result I am now starving. Unfortunately I can't eat until thenumbess goes away.

Oh well.
Oh mon, it's even worse when you try to drink some water or something... just dripping and drolling out of your misshapen mouth trying to keep the liquid in it...

Re: Second Chance Math Trade Discussion
Reminder to everybody to check your entries for comments right now and respond. Because once the list is locked, you will not be able to respond. You can use the OLWLG to view just the items that you have entered to facilitate this process.

And if you have questions about an offer, post it right away to give the offerer a chance to respond before the list closes.

Re: Second Chance Math Trade Discussion
Well, a little under 2 hours before the submission deadline, and I think we're seeing a nice mix of items from the last math trade as well as a few new ones.

We have a long way to go, but I'm feeling cautiously optimistic. Then again, perhaps that's the painkillers talking.

Speaking of which, this afternoon, the oral surgeon really worked over the right side of my jaw to get at least one of tmy wisdom teeth, and i'm finally starting to feel it. Now, I'm not looking for sympathy, but it made me wonder if this is how Ricky Hatton felt last weekend.

Though it was 15 years ago, I had 4 pulled at the same time. I'm sorry to say I was miserable for a week. I haven't eaten pudding since.

I submitted mine 16 minutes after submission opened. Does that make me first? Although, first means that I have no life and spent an inordinate amount of time late at night scrolling through the list and checking boxes the last couple of days... so many not such a good thing.

All this wisdom teeth talk is freaking me out. I had one dentist tell me I should get mine out because they're impacted, but my current dentist looked at the X-rays and said they were uncomfortably close to a major nerve in my face, so taking them out could possibly cause me to lose feeling in part of my face permanently. Needless to say, I still have my wisdom teeth. I hope they stay dormant.

Re: Second Chance Math Trade Discussion - Submit wantlists now
Since the geeklist is closed, just wanted to answer the question on whether the Nordstrom gift card expires or not. Here's what I got from Nordstrom's website:

Quote:
Nordstrom Gift Cards and Virtual Gift Cards do not expire, have no fees and are redeemable at Nordstrom.com, Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack stores.

Close but no cigar, Shawn. nmadd beat you by one minute. Congratulations, nmadd - your 'No-Prize' is in the mail.

By the way, we still have a loong way to go, but we officially have our first unofficial trades this morning - it's a modest chain of 3 trades but, hey, it's a start.

I'll start posting updates on the first page as we go along, but as of this morning we're missing 777 wants (62.1%) from 118 user(s) (68.2%).

Re: Second Chance Math Trade Discussion - Submit wantlists now
I would assume that it would be irrelevant to post any trade chains now, because once all submissions are in, the Trade Maximizer could mathematically re-do all such chains, correct?

Re: Second Chance Math Trade Discussion - Submit wantlists now
Correct. There would really be no point, since it would just take 1 want list to change any result - especially this early in the game.
