It's been a good 4 or 5 months since the last Canadian Math Trade, so here we go one more time.

Please make sure to read through all the rules and pay attention to all posted dates/times.

For anyone new to Math Trades be sure to check out the following thread for a video tutorial on math trades.

Math Trade Video Tutorials

Note: You MUST have a Canadian mailing address to participate in this Math Trade.

Trade Geeklist: Helloween's Here! - Canadian Math Trade

Request GeekList: Helloween's Here! - Canadian Math Trade - Requests


Submissions Dates/Times:

Posting Games: Sunday October 21st (6:00 PM EDT) to Monday October 29th (11:00 PM EDT)

Want List Submissions: Monday October 29th (11:00 PM EDT) to Thursday November 1st (10:00 PM EDT)

Results posted shortly thereafter.


Rules (Please read carefully):

1. Board Games, RPG's, Video Games and items outside the scope of BGG are all permitted.

2. There is a limit of two (2) Gift Certificate and two (2) Geek Gold entries per person. Gift Certificate and GeekGold arbitrage are NOT allowed. Neither are cash offerings.

3. Non-game entries must be added using "Outside the Scope of BGG" (Game ID 23953). Make sure to use the +altname+ brief description -altname- format in the description of your item for it to properly show up in the OLWLG.

4. You must describe the condition of your games as accurately as possible. This includes both the box and it's contents.

5. You must clearly state the editions and languages of all games posted. Do not just state "edition as posted", as pictures do not show up in the OLWLG.

6. Shipping - You shall be required to cover full shipping to any location within Canada.

7. Do NOT delete any entries after they have been submitted. Just include a blank wantlist for that particular item instead.

8. Please do NOT include links to any other games (or items) in your entries, so that they are not misleadingly displayed as sweetners in the OLWLG.

9. Use of the On-Line Want List Generator (OLWLG) is required for submissions. Refer to the following document for help:
http://boardgamegeek.com/wiki/page/OLWLG

10. If you have been reported as a bad trader, do NOT try to participate. Any entries made will be removed.

11. Any other questions or issues, just ask.

There will have been several local math trades in the Toronto area by the end of next month, but I will probably throw some things up here and see what happens.

Yeah, this overlaps with the FGC Games Day trade that I'm running, and the TABSCon one will follow (I assume). I'll list my stuff here, and if I trade anything in the FGC one, I'll just submit a blank Want List for it here.

Is it just for me or is the Mathtrade gateway not loading new entries. I only have 66 games on mine. Also, my two last entires are not showing.

The moderator has to go in periodically and hit a "refresh" button. The OLWLG does not do it automatically. So, check back in a few hours...

Yes, in reference to the band. Not really a fan of them, but I have heard some of their stuff a long time ago.

A little over 3 days left to add items to the trade. Missing a lot of the regular math traders. Hopefully we can get to at least 500 items by the deadline.

Just over a day to go and we've passed the 500 item mark. Can we get to 600 by the submission deadline?

We've got a lot of submissions that are contrary to the Math Trade rules. Individuals with several Gift Certificate entries when only two are allowed and several entries with shipping limitations.

Should these items be avoided in my wants list unless corrected? Is there going to be problems when the results are posted if they do not change thier listings?

Just curious

I've sent a geekmail to users derekjinx & aquilonien who posted items with shipping restrictions. Hopefully they'll either change their shipping rules or just submit blank wants for those items.

As for the GC's, feel free to add them to your wantlist. Hopefully everyone will follow the rules for the remainder of the math trade.

This is the first math trade I've participated in with shipping involved.
I am familiar with the want list generator, etc., but I am unsure of the proper steps to take after the trade results are published.
Can someone point me in the direction of a resource detailing this process?
I've already found this thread:
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/156295/after-the-math-tr...
which describes using trade manager and trade proposals to give shipping addresses to the other traders.
Given that I am likely to give and receive games from different BGG users, which user would I propose a trade to?

You propose trades to both (unless they beat you to it). If you are sending a game to someone, and not receiving from them, just leave their side of the trade blank.

Thanks for pointing it out. I totally missed the free shipping rule. I now adjusted all my items to reflect that. Sorry! blush

So what happened at #675 / #676? Did UltimateJarhead delete an item? I thought you were not supposed to do that.

Yup. Looks like item #676 was somehow deleted after the geeklist was locked down at 11:08 pm.

The final sync in the OLWLG was done and the summary was loaded at 23:10:11.

So somehow that one entry got deleted, but didn't reflect in the OLWLG list. Not sure if it's a glitch or what as I've never seen this situation before.

Technically it shouldn't matter in the end as what's in the OLWLG is what's necessary to compile wantlists and compute results.

This used to be a critical error that could possibly cause the entire trade to be void. Now, it has no effect unless the perfect storm of missteps are taken a user who:
1) manually writes down the numbers of the items they want, and
2) finds them in the OLWLG list and clicks "add" without actually reading the title of the item they are adding

Personally, I'd much rather have items be deleted from the list than the old method of modifying the entry or just not submitting a want list for the item.

With 6+ hours to go, we're still missing wants from 6 users. Hopefully everyone gets their wants in by the deadline.
