Where does the 55 hours come in? My count puts it at something closer to 36.

I didn't think I'd ever have to make this a rule but folks... please do not offer items until you are actually have the info to do so. Ie. don't list "TBA/TBD/TBS" (To Be Announced/Determined or Supplied).

This kind of follows under rule 3.8... once the OLWLG has synced your offering and folks may have "added" it it's kind of late.

Thanks!

Thank you, Jeff, for doing this math trade!

I was experiencing severe withdrawals after the flurry of the previous month!

Hehe...the funny thing is...games that I would want to trade (Shear Panic, etc) she would say no, because she thinks they are cute. However, we still would never play the game

Since I let her have her way, I'll just see what she would be willing to get rid off first and then make my picks from there. She's got a few favourites that she won't let go of even though we don't play them anymore. Dominion and Fury of Dracula come to mind. Also, any games that were received as gifts, especially if they were gifts from her to me, I'm not allowed to get rid of

I can not mail any of my offerings until at least the 20th or later (caring for my post-op mom). It will only be one or two things. Will there be any problems if I put them up with such a disclaimer?

got a geekmailed question... reminder folks to please use this forum for questions so anyone else who may have the same question can also see the answer, but given first deadline is coming up quick I'll copy the q&a here...

Q: how should "pick N" offerings be done? real links to all game choices or just text?

A: I don't have a big problem with the real links (except too many do make it more difficult for your customers in step 4)... as long as the entry is "outside the scope of BGG" and the altname is clear like "pick 3 of the following 7"

by the way... while this MT was meant to be "no fooling" it looks like Aldie and/or the admins are also playing a joke on us that we can't escape... the game rankings appear to be complete fiction (and not based on ratings)...

... even more confusing is remember that the OLWLG caches game data.. so this mainly affects any game id's that are newly offered today.

Aye, best solution would be to follow game rating instead of ranking for now.

Based on GameIDs today apparently.

yup, sorry, that's what i meant by mainly affecting game id's newly offered today (because any game id's seen yesterday or up to whatever point Aldie changed them would be cached with valid ranking)

15 minutes left folks to offer games, answer questions on your items, etc (as the geeklist will be locked down at the deadline).

Well I thought the MT curse on BGG was going to show itself... went to lock down the geeklist right at the deadline and then BGG wasn't responding! In fact was getting connect resets...

... however all set now... online submissions are turned on! You have less than 10 hours (11pm EDT)!!!

I'm embarrassed to say that I missed being the first to submit by two seconds. It's even more embarrassing that I would even try.
