FIX: Another batch of series & their associated episodes should now probably be properly tagged... Also, made a blunder when fixing those automatically, so there might be a couple DLCs that are now considered episodes, or whatever. I think I fixed those... But really, fixing the Barter database is a never-ending task-- some things just break over time.

Lestrade's should now support exporting to Barter with tags, at least 99%!

TUTORIAL

- Go to your Wishlist or Tradables
- Click the 'Export' button
- Click the 'BVG format (JSON)' button (No, it doesn't say Jenson Button... it does not.)
- Click the 'Copy list to Clipboard' button.
- Go to barter.vg and to your Wishlist or Tradables
- Click the Edit button (don't forget to empty your list as needed.)
- In "Add by:", click the "JSON" option.
- A textarea should show up with a sample of what you're supposed to enter.
- Important: if you have more than ~500 items in your list, at this point, right-click the textarea, select "Inspect element", the textarea tag should show up in text form. Double click the "40000", press the Delete key to remove that. Press Enter. At this point it should just say maxlength instead of maxlength="40000", and you should be able to enter your data properly. The admin was asked to lift this limit but he has yet to do it.
- Click the textarea, press Ctrl+V or whatever to paste your JSON data in it. Click the "+ Add JSON" button.

Wait a bit... And you're done. All Barter items, properly tagged through Lestrade's ultra-simple multi-item real-time tagging tools. Now you no longer have an excuse not to use it, if only for the tagging system. Tell your friends, shameless plug :)

FIX: Offers got an 'already pending trade' warning even if the tradable had a quantity higher than one. I don't need to deal with those.
FIX (well, sorta...): You can now add F2P/demo games to your tradables, albeit with a confirmation box to click before you can do it. The reasoning is that the BVG database has some games incorrectly tagged as Free to play, and you may not want to wait for the guys in charge to fix the tag before you can add the game to your tradables. (e.g. the latest Life is Feudal game.)

The Barter tutorial should be moved out to another thread. In here it will lose visibility pretty quickly

I actually linked to it from the export page yesterday precisely because I thought it could help. Just watch out for the '?' icon!

FIX: Banned Steam games no longer seem to show up in libraries when querying Steam... So I've added the ability to bulk-add them (they still show up when doing "Add DLCs/Packages" from your library page), or directly add them from the game page (or remove them, if you made a mistake.)

Note: 'Episodes' will now be classified as Junk items internally. While they're not exactly 'junk', usually you add them to your library through buying the parent 'series', and I don't believe you can buy episodes individually... So it doesn't really make sense to clutter the default database search with untradable stuff.

FIX: Tags imported from BVG were incorrectly listed in the Tag list. (I was actually converting tag IDs the other way around... Anyway it doesn't matter.)

Also added a few tags that BVG added recently. This one really, really makes me wonder... Where the hell does BVG get its tag lists from? Certainly not from Steam or Steamspy... https://lestrades.com/tag/450/ (There are plenty of games I wouldn't consider to be shit games, either!)

NEW: Added a 'crowdfunding' store, per user request. This is mostly for Kickstarter-issued Steam keys but you can use whatever crowdfunding site you used, obviously...
PS: the icon is butt-ugly! Complain with KS, not me...

FIX: Fixed exporting games to BVG JSON for some wishlisted items: (1) games with the 'no offer' tag, as long as you choose the JSON option of course. (2) games with the 'filler' tag weren't exported at all, now they're exported with the 'lowest tier' tag, which is even lower than what LT's supports. (And really that's what 'filler' stands for, pretty much... Stuff you don't really care about.)
