Well there are more stats in the page but they're only shown to me... Too depressing at the time, eheh. (Low numbers of trades completed, compared to BVG... Even though LT's was so much better. I left it time to catch up, it's still not as practical and well designed, but since I'm pretty much done with the idea that LT's would be a dashing success, I'm fine with it now.)
I should probably show the stats to everyone, I suppose.

And included in the subscription, likely the final one! Thanks!

NEW: Added 'most tradables' and 'most involved in offers' (received + sent) user stat charts in the Stats page. Not particularly interesting, but I thought you might wanna look into those.

FIX: The game list was no longer working; I didn't any reports otherwise I would have fixed it earlier.
FIX: Forgot to automate deletion of outdated (only auto-added) user items.
FIX: Made offer pages slightly more readable.
Posted: December 6th, 11:10 AM

Note: all items added before September 5, 2017 are now assumed to be auto-synced from BVG if the user hasn't logged in in over 6 months (this isn't a random date; it's when I started flagging BVG imports as such when creating your account). This is because if your tradables are over 14 months old *and* you haven't been here in over 6 months, it's likely you won't come back at all (i.e. you've retired from trading or whatever), so I'd rather not screw up 'recent ratios' with old tradables you're unlikely to be able to get anyway.

Auto purging is a much awaited feature for me. Similar to Barter. That'd be great :)
Barter has it..? Lol. I thought it was something I was the first to come up with. I mean how does it handle users who manually added items on the site..? Does it remove those as well?
The purge is over, BTW. About 2/3 of all wishlisted items & library items have been slashed. A smaller share of tradables has been removed, because of a technical issue: I never added a 'barter sync' for first-timers who imported their tradables from BVG. Meaning I have no way to determine if a game was added manually on LT's (not removable) or added through barter (removable), so I'm only removing games that were added later with a manual BVG sync. That still accounts for, like, dozens of thousands of tradables removed...

Note: if you want to recover your lists, you need to: (1) log into the site, (2) go to your wishlist and click to sync (your library will be updated as well), then proceed to manually import from Barter on all of your tabs. Also consider using 'add DLCs and packages' in your library page.

FIX: I had an issue with a custom SQL call I made, which in turn corrupted the library and wishlist databases.
As such I had to reinstall them from a backup dated from about 18 hours. I also restored the tradables database, though it was uncorrupted, to ensure the same consistency in your data. Assume ALL of the tradable/wishlist/library data you entered *manually *(or through a BVG sync) less than 18 hours ago has to be re-entered.
I apologize about that.


I'm actually working on purging the databases from all automatically imported items (Steam/BVG wishlist, BVG tradables and Steam/BVG library) from users who haven't been on the website in over 6 months, meaning they're unlikely to ever come back and this gives us incorrect item ratios.
So, expect severe ratio changes on some older bundled items, of course! You can always consult BVG to see the ratios over there, but they're usually wildly differenty already (especially on items added in the last year.)

(Old topic!)

Yeah it does, because it can't really know if it was revoked or just borrowed.
IIRC, you can actually manually remove the game from your library from within the game page. As long as it's marked as 'delisted', you can do it.

NEW: Improved library pages when it comes to removed games. The mention 'Removed' was replaced with either:
- 'Not found' (less scary..?), for games that were probably revoked;
- 'Delisted' for games that were apparently removed from Steam but have an unclear status (the jury's out on whether it got revoked from your library or you're safe);
- 'Pending' for games pending Steam verification (meaning they really are in your library, just not disclosed for now officially);
- and 'Banned' if the game was removed from Steam for rule violation, thus implying it will no longer show up in your public library but you're safe playing it.

The same process is used in game pages, with a short explanation when you hover the word.

BTW, does anyone have Silent Service in their library, yet marked as revoked/delisted..? The game is still on Steam, and it doesn't seem to be under any kind of scrutiny, given its age. That's weird. Same for 'Star Swarm Stress Test', actually. That's the only two games in my 6000+ game library that are incorrectly marked as removed. Also, some of my free video series ("Let's Play", for instance) are also marked as delisted, I'm guessing Steam no longer shows them as owned..?

At least they're nicely designed.
But yeah, one more opportunity for us to get lost in a page that gives us the information the studios want us to have, rather than all the details we're looking for.
Eh, it's my main reason for wanting to have this studio page on Lestrade's in the first place... (And I'm surprised BVG doesn't have one.)

FIX: Hopefully I'm now automatically fixing duplicate studio names (i.e. studios that can't bother to properly type their own names on their store pages). Example: "The House Of Games" is sometimes spelled as "The House of Games" (which makes more sense to me, but "Of" came first AFAIK, so whatever...) Before, I would have to fix these duplicate names manually in the database, now it should be automatic.
This also means that the studio/publisher lists are actually more accurate than Steam's, because Steam counts these different spellings as different studios (IIRC). And sometimes, it doesn't even show you developer games anymore, and directly redirects to the publisher's custom page.

NEW: Implemented real-time sorting on Studio pages. e.g. https://lestrades.com/studio/2179/ -> you can sort games by ratio, rating, name, etc...
(Note: this setting won't be remembered across page loads; I feel that having it sort alphanumerically by default is just fine, you'll only occasionally want to sort the list differently.)

It's no biggie. I like to think people who need this will figure it out ;)

NEW: You can now filter bundles by their store... Just click the icon on the left next to a bundle.
This will be more interesting once I implement paging for bundle lists, because for now, well... It's only useful if you're trying to find a specific bundle quickly and you can't bother to type Ctrl+F ;)

FIX: Games that are 'pending' in Steam and not showing up in your library can now be added to your library manually.
Note: this can only be done through Bulk Add for now... i.e. the Add DLCs/Packages button at the top of your library page. Just follow the instructions, you'll see all of your 'pending' games listed, confirm, and they'll be properly added. Previously, they would be rejected because they're regular games, and normally Steam reports them all... Since it's no longer the case, I really needed to do that. If it doesn't work for a particular game, feel free to tell me!

I'm wondering if this is a first..? The new weekly bundle only has a $10 tier.

Also, it has Phantom Brave in it. Well worth the purchase! I was given the game over a year ago and really enjoyed finishing it.
