The Illustrious Idea / Give me more stats
« on March 19th, 2020, 04:34 PM »

Could we have more stats for offers? Like quantity in general, per store, per bundle, fulfilled wishlists, etc.

Stats are pretty cool, and something unique to this website. I like to check them from time to time. I'm sure it brings more value to the website. Probably something that people don't know they need.

Also the ability to generate graphs for your own profile, like wishlists, tradables, etc would be immense imo. With a signature generator it could be a good addition to people who like to compete in stats, ala steamladder, completionist, etc. But obviously focused on trades.

PS: I've noticed I'm top poster wth!
The Detective League / Missing bundles
« on August 15th, 2019, 05:52 PM »
Creating this topic to record missing bundles. I love lestrades when it comes comparing bundles, as it is easier to see which games I have and which I am interested in.

I couldn't find the jackbox party 2019 from humblebundle
The Fatal Problem / Problems with formatting
« on June 27th, 2019, 02:33 PM »
Frequently when quotting or just replying the font gets messed up.

Discussion started here

IE  :wow:Please do not get me wrong, I think Wedge is really fluid. However sometimes I get annoyed when I reply to a post and the result font is smaller than default or paragraphs have too much spacing. Something odd with the formatting. So I have to go back and change it for every paragraph. It happens frequently. Quick or full editor doesn't seem to make a difference. Using Chrome btw.
I was trying to find a specific game, only to realise the name is different from Steam both here and in Barter. Unfortunately I couldn't find it in the list here. Only through Barter I eventually reached the correct name.

The game is 'Max Payne 3 Rockstar Pass', but it's shown as 'Max Payne 3 Season Pass'
Is it possible to improve the search to account for these use cases? Barter allows displaying all results in one page, which many times is useful to find incorrect naming or spelling mistakes.
The Illustrious Idea / Tradables Sorting

Hi. Can we have sort by tier tag in the tradables list? :)
The Illustrious Idea / Custom lists
« on August 23rd, 2017, 09:42 PM »

The idea is to have custom lists that work in a similar fashion to labels in gmail. It needs an option to add bulk tags to the items of the list. For instance if the list is acting as a 'blacklist', I should be able to tag everything with 'no offer'.
Lists would become labels and allow for more dynamic management than we currently have.

In my case I have the following examples:
- Games played
- Games that I will never play (just for trading cards)
- Steam gifts
- Waiting for the development
- Free games

To make best use of lists, tags should also be considered labels. I think if users can create their own labels, this can be an incredible feature to have.

PS: Not sure how this would play out when syncing with Barter. Seems to be a lot of work.

I wanted to have a separate thread to see what people think. The idea started from this quote:

...I'm really, really not a big fan of blacklists. I'd rather ditch those later, replace them with custom 'generic lists' where you can choose a list name (such as 'Blacklist' if you're inclined), but that will not have much impact on offers, simply help you sort out your games. (For instance, adding a "Favorite games" list where you could freely add your favorite games, whether or not you have them in another list. That'd be something.)
The Illustrious Idea / GOG Wishlist
« on July 26th, 2017, 01:46 PM »

I have been here since the inception of Lestrades. It has been a short ride, with many features quickly introduced that I appreciate.
As another user pointed out, I think this website needs to differentiate a little bit in order to move people away from similar trade websites.

One feature I always wanted to have since beginning trading is the ability to add wishlist from other websites, in particular GOG. I don't know if this is possible (if not I'd like to appeal to GOG). I can see one day amazon digital would also make a lot of sense as well.

In a world surrounded mostly by Steam, it is our duty as gamers to support healthy competition :)
The Fatal Problem / Post Editor
« on June 28th, 2017, 06:12 PM »

There's a bug in the editor. I have noticed this behaviour many times since the website opened. I guess I was waiting for it to be fixed by itself.

Many times when I am writing messages, they appear fine in the editor, but after clicking post button, the font size is changed and appear like this (actually even smaller) without changing any font size on my side:
really small font message that you cannot see

Actually it just happened now. See the small message and copy-paste to an editor (I manually changed the font size for this one)
The Fatal Problem / Offers error
« on June 10th, 2017, 03:24 PM »

When I go to the offers page I get this:

'Database error, given array of integer values is empty. (active_offers) [array(0) { } ] (Array ( ) )'
The Noble Talk / Increase comments character limit
« on May 21st, 2017, 07:27 PM »

Today I was inserting some comments on my tradables and found out the comment section is limited to 31 characters. Is it possible to increase it to say 250 at least?
Some games cannot be activated in certain regions, I'd like to list them.
The Illustrious Idea / One button to sync
« on May 10th, 2017, 07:33 PM »

Now that we can sync both the wishlist and the library with steam I'd like to ask if we can have one button to sync everything :)
The Noble Talk / What the flu?

(And yes, I have the flu even though we're in Spring. Go ahead, laugh at me, 2017 is my lucky year. I should be in bed right now, I can't even think properly.)
A bit off topic here: I also had two recent flus which never happened before. My theory is that it is related to the anti-vaccine campaigns :/
The Illustrious Idea / Proposal for Offers count
« on April 11th, 2017, 01:26 PM »
Every time I look at the offers button on top, I think what's the importance of it? Total count doesn't mean much.

I opened this topic to discuss a new suggestion. I propose the number to be the total of active offers (meaning pending/unread). Makes more sense this way in order to understand how many offers needs my attention.
The Fatal Problem / Can't add certain games to the library
« on April 11th, 2017, 01:21 PM »
Go to the game webpage, click Add to Library. Nothing happens :(

Sadly there is no bulk add for Library, so can't add them manually.

There are probably more, just came across these.
The Illustrious Idea / Add combined packages
« on March 20th, 2017, 05:03 PM »
Combined packages are not shown.


I can search for all the individual games separately (and they got added to my library) though.

This is specially useful if I want to search for a package to trade or just add to my list all at once.
