When steam is slow and doesn't work, and you go to Lestrade to check the wishlist.
Thanks for being here 'D

Btw... their website kicks me off every 2 weeks or so. I have to login again every time. So annoying!

Yeah, Steam has been very unstable these last few weeks, dunno why... DDOS attacks? Either way, it's great to be able to refer to Lestrades.com in these situations, I do the same myself, but that wouldn't be surprising eheh.
Their website doesn't "kick you off" though, it simply expires the login cookie. Normally it shouldn't expire that often... I think there are tools to allow you to extend the lifetime of a cookie, you should look into that.

Please note that following 2 requests over the last few months, I finally implemented proper removal of accounts, including linked offers. So if you want to remove your account from here, send me a PM. I'll look into your account details and if you haven't had many offers completed, I'll delete your account. (I may also allow it for bigger accounts in the future, but that'd mean keeping the offers online and I like keeping track of every detail in the offer list, so I'd have to keep the account name in the archived offer...)

I was thinking about the login cookie expiring. Perhaps they do it because of security, since it requires my steam guard to login again. Although, all other websites that use steam login will stay logged (including this hone) :hmm:

Fix: because there are very few users who get banned from Lestrade's (basically there's only just ONE user who keeps insulting people and trying to scam then, and then comes back under a new name), I forgot to implement a few things related to banning.
So, from now on, when a user is banned:
- this information shows up on their profile for everyone to know (previously, it was only viewable by me)
- their tradables, wishlist, library and blacklist are all emplied, and all ratios updated. (Previously, well, nothing.)
- you won't be able to send them an offer anyway. (I don't know if it's important, since their lists are emptied...)

I'm on the fence regarding deleting active offers, though. It might be considered as censorship. (?)

Note: I've noticed a minor issue, but...
Lestrade's is set to auto-delete any accounts with no contents after 6 months or something without logging in. I never even considered ban status. Meaning people who got banned before might technically be able to come back after 6 months. I'll have to look into it seriously, but since this only applies to just a handful of people, it's easy to check.

My bad-- I double-checked, and I'm only deleting tradables/wishlist/library that were added automatically, so that nothing gets lost in the process. It doesn't delete members at all. It's just that I tested on a wrong member ID.
