FIX: It was impossible to mutually cancel an offer because the recipient (not the sender) was unable to cancel on their side. It only took someone to report the problem to me before I looked into it. Why is no one reporting huge bugs like these..? I thought no reports = no bugs... So I never bothered to double-check myself...

FIX: Can now quick search for games with Chinese characters only, such as 影踪 - 斩玉剑.

NEW: This has been here for a few days, but I forgot to mention it... When creating an offer, all games are now available for you to select from (except if blacklisted IIRC.) You can restore the previous behavior (i.e. hide games from library & tradables) by following the new link at the top of the list of games.

NEW: This was requested more than once, so I finally did it -- match pages now sort results by trader last login dates (i.e. first results come from the most recently online user), rather than the 'Barter way of doing it'.

As a reminder, I'd reverse-engineered Barter's sorting method to be done this way: first results shown were the ones with your oldest tradables (e.g. the first ones you added to your account and that have a potential match.) I had a good reason to use Barter's sorting method before -- I wanted users to feel at home when everyone was transitioning from Barter to LT. Because Barter came back, and tradable lists are now often vastly different, there really isn't a reason to sort matches in this weird way. If you want to keep sorting à la Barter though, you can simply add '?byage' to the URL. So, that'd be "/match/?byage" for a global site match request.

Hope you like this change. I can also do other types of sorting, just ask.

FIX: Importing items from BVG was broken, I've tested with tradables and it's working again now.

FIX (your mileage may vary): Day mode had one drawback compared to Night mode-- Steam game banners are built with a dark mode in mind, so they often appear too dark on a bright background. I devised a quick & easy trick to make this more acceptable by decreasing the contrast of these banners in Day mode. Feedback is welcomed.

It has come to my attention that BVG recently updated their tag list. Because they hadn't so in years, Lestrade's was using its own tag list generated from the partial BVG list and added a hundred or so new tags. Because of the new tags, some games are now improperly tagged. I'm currently working on a long-term solution that doesn't involve on-the-fly conversions, but for now I'll have to do with it. So, tags are fixed on game pages, as well as the tag list. Elsewhere (such as bundle pages), they're not fixed yet. No biggie...

NEW: In your Tradables page, you can now choose to ignore may-keep items when exporting. This was of use for me because I had reached the maximum allowed size for 'Have' games at SteamTrades, *and* I was getting bored of everyone sending me shit offers for my may-keep games... So, now I have a shorter tradable list, and I'm more likely to trade those games now. Yay.

FIX: The Steam wishlist page changed and broke Lestrade's sync function. I fixed it, and as an added bonus the 'Added' date in your game pages will now reflect the time the game was added to your Steam wishlist, rather than the time it was first imported into your Lestrade's wishlist.

Also, this 'bug' shouldn't have affected you if you didn't take any action when visiting your wishlist and being presented with the option to clean up your wishlist. (And, of course, if you didn't visit your wishlist page at all.)

FIX: (Well, err... Sort of..???!!) "Home" and "Profile" icons in the main menu were screwed up (= showing a diamond) on some browsers. Unfortunately, I'm not able to determine whether it's fixed on all browsers that had the issue. But it's fixed on mine. Oddly, by removing a "width: 16px" CSS rule. That's so weird. I don't really see why this could cause issues...

FIX: Couldn't change custom game values from within multi-tagging in game lists (wishlist etc.), could only change from individual game pages.

UNRELATED: I now have fiber. ^o^ Uploading updates for the websites now takes a few milliseconds instead of 5 to 10 seconds, lol. So good! I waited 15 years for that moment...

FIX: Had a few 'undefined' errors popping up everywhere on the site since yesterday. This was due to a small change in my codebase to accomodate for a new 'Package' tag that is shown next to, err... Steam packages. (Similarly to DLCs, demos, videos, series, episodes and trailers.)
The change was required because packages aren't flagged in the same way as regular game types, but I forgot to update a few areas in my code. This didn't impair functionality at all, it simply showed that silly error everywhere when sending an offer for instance.
(I would have noticed earlier if someone had posted a bug report. Like, I easily had a few dozen users get the error and none of them bothered to post. :P)

UNRELATED: And yes, as you can see, I'm still working on the site... :P Work slowed nearly to a halt this month while I'm entering a new relationship. (So it's for the better good. Well, my better good!)
