Site trying to empty my wishlist?
«  »
When I go to my wishlist, I see - 2909 games that were imported from your Steam wishlist are no longer over there. Do you want to remove them from your wishlist here, or keep them?

I guess this is something to do with the new wishlist page that steam rolled out?

The new rollout of the revised Steam wishlist is totally bunko...not only is it screwed up there (like, half my wishlist is gone) but  it is screwing my wishlist up here too, and I'm sure once my barter acct syncs it will be screwed there too.

Keep them all is more suited for regular wishlist removals. I'd suggest leaving it at that for now.
I'm not seeing any errors on my side, I'd need to look into your account specifically...

I think I've found the origin of the issue... On your wishlist, there are thousands of items that have their rank to zero. Not sure why this is happening..?
One way to fix it is to reorder a couple items in your Steam wishlist and then save. Bug shouldn't appears anymore. But I'd rather you didn't, I'm trying to fix this, but I'm falling asleep...

So... I had more bugs last night and I fixed the last of them earlier today.

BTW, Steam internally stores a rank as '0' if it wasn't explicitly set. This is probably why the old wishlist system used to show you the last few items in random order every time you reloaded the page-- it sorted by rank, but then it got lost when all ranks were 0. This is probably going to happen on LT's as well, I don't know. I always give items a 'fake' rank if they're zero, need to see if it changes.

Now, I *think* I've found a bug in the new Steam wishlist...
Some items, for SOME reason, unknown to me, provide a duplicate rank. Due to this, the reworked sync tool would still drop some games and consider them removed. I had 13 of those. I fixed that to force unique ranks (basically I'm dropping duplicates to the end of the list), and I'm only getting 3 missing games now. (Not sure why-- but then again I don't remember those games either.)

It's okay enough for now... Please report your results.

Good!
I did notice another game that showed up in my 'removed' category yesterday, but I didn't bother and just marked it as re-add.
The new Steam system is undocumented anyway, so it's likely to still have some issues.
