Wondering if you guys would be happy with a temporary system...
Sounds better than nothing, but some users will always be picky... hehehe
Also, from this point on would it be disconnected from barter? Will adding new games be implemented also on this side ate the same time?
My real wishlist is on steam.

I like to trade for games I do not own based on Want/Have Ratio, rather than other approaches.

I'm doing all I can ;)

Implemented or fixed today:
- Canceling an offer
- Offer list is now sorted by expiry date
- I've started working towards being able to edit offers (yes, I know I said I wouldn't do that for now...)
- New offer notifications (again-- I said I wouldn't do it, but I did it. I'm deeply sorry.)

There are probably 157 more bugs to fix...
I have no idea if I'll be able to release the system today. I'm doing all I can. I'm in crunch mode again. Heck, I was looking for volunteers to send me offers but found no one so in the end I just edited the database to send myself offers so I could test. ^^

PS: 100 posts!
PPS: I'm working for you guys on my birthday!! I hope you feel ashamed, as intended!! Send me gifts!!! I'll give access to premium filters to early birds! Already one slot filled! :eheh:

Will be here for two hours or so, so I can send you offers.
Hey, congratulations on your birthday! :blush:

Implemented:
- Editing offer (works similarly to Barter, too, which wasn't a given since the way I handle things is very different.)

Implemented (well, "finished" is more like it):
- Fixed 'Accept offer' (Needs more work)
- Mark Completed

Unfortunately I've run out of time. I'll be living real life for ~3 hours and I'll be back to test later tonight. I'm really pumped. If it's not a public release, at least I'll do test trades with volunteers and then I'll release it tomorrow.

I'd also like to note that currently the system uses barter user IDs in half of the queries, so I'm gonna have "a lot of fun" doing the full transition to LT user IDs later. It will probably break things, because that's what I do. (That, and accepting birthday gifts.)

Thanks guys!
Nope, no cake, no nothing... The cake really was a li--oh, I just got told that I'm not the first to do that joke.

At least the missus let me work on LT today rather than force me to do errands like I was supposed to do. That's a present, in itself. ;)
I should be back in around an hour... I took a few minutes to fix something else. 'Accept offer' should be 100% working now, and if I'm not mistaken we should be able to go through offer creation to offer completion without a problem (except games won't get removed from wishlists & tradables for now, since they're still linked to Barter scrapes ^^), but I'll need to make tests obviously.

I'm testing offers with a user right now, so let it be said that it was OFFICIALLY FINISHED ON MARCH 21ST :D

I just had to send that post at 23:59, ah ah.
But still, I received offers so that'll work for me.

It's still completely broken, so I'll remove all of the fake offers tomorrow, fix the bugs, and release to the public.

Missing features compared to Barter:

- Countering
- Offering non-wishlisted items or asking for non-wishlisted items
- :edit: Offer comments (I want to do them right; probably something threaded that will be shared with game page comments or similar.)
- Removing tradables/wishlisted from lists after completing (this will be done as soon as I go public and I disable the scraper.)
- Removing items from offer when Editing it (after submitting it and then clicking 'Edit'-- otherwise you can remove items when you're creating the offer, so at worst until I get to fix this you can still cancel an offer and just create a new one.)
- Notifications are very, very bare. The text shown is ridiculous. ("XXX has sent you a new offer", "XXX has sent you a new declined offer", yeah, it's not even proper English, I didn't have time to work on that for more than 20 minutes.) :edit: Text fixed, still bare notifications, I need to add previews in notifications...
- :edit: Agreed to cancel and other Fail reasons aren't available yet. There's only a Complete button.

Will edit if I remember other things that are broken/missing compared to Barter.
Other than that, I think everything's there.

Implemented:
- Ability to disable offer notifications. (It's a bit hidden deep inside your profile settings, although not that hard to find: just go to your profile, check out the profile dropdown menu, there's a Notification section in it, and there's an 'Offers' subsection in that page.)

Is it still advisable to update tradables/games and import them here, or is it better to wait for today?
