I think the red text below dupe entries should be enough... No?
When selecting it to click on "ignore this", it is a white box on white background, which is a bit hard to see.
Err... Really? I'm seeing the text in black..?
Dunno what you mean. The fact that there isn't a banner next to it?

It's really just a minor annoyance.
It's black text on a white background, and the surrounding window (like, the main canvas, unused space) is white aswell.
It's not about the text, but the clickable space vs the background of the lestrades homepage.
Maybe an empty banner would help, in my opinion it would look better.

FIX: since last night, the website had performance issues when matching, or doing anything with wishlists.
I was at a loss and thought it was a server-side issue. It was, but it was caused by a change I did to the wishlist table indexes yesterday. There's a little known oddity to multi-column indexes that I wasn't aware of, and it was the cause of the mess. Everything should be back to normal now.

I apologize for the time it took; devotee had to be available to reboot servers to allow me some time to fix the index. (I propose a poll to convince devotee to give me the ability to reboot servers if they freeze everything :P)

FIX: You may remember this dreaded problem where completed offers removed your tradables properly, but not your wishlisted items...?
Okay, that's fixed. That was a terrible oversight from me, a delicate detail of the offer system that I didn't notice at first.
Ironically, that very problem could only be fixed by what I did yesterday (preventing duplicates in wishlists, i.e. same game & same platform), although it was totally unrelated.
It should work from now on. Sadly, there is no easy way for me to fix previous completed trades, so I'm counting on you guys to go through your previously completed trades, and delete items from your wishlist if you have them now and don't want them anymore.

Also, regarding Steam inventory items (tf2/csgo keys, ToD's, etc.), they won't be removed from wishlist & tradables when a trade is completed. They'll just see their quantity decrease. If they reach 0, then they'll stay that way. I think it's more in line with what we're used to doing.

Today every time i want to manually delete a game from my wishlist i get database error. Game removes from wishlist though.

Please try again. If you come back to this error screen, report the error to an administrator.

Thanks, didn't notice that error. Was something I introduced by mistake earlier today.

Also:

FIX (if it can be called a fix because it was already good enough...): sorting on your lists should now be up to twice faster. Especially noticeable on large lists, e.g. your library.
Also, can now sort libraries by Recent/Older. Although currently you probably won't notice a difference, since everything is imported by batches... ^^

NEW: Offer history with a specific user now shows up at the bottom of their profile.

As a reminder, while there are still features missing but planned (counter-offer, fail, agreed to cancel, comments...), offers at LT's are (willingly) more permissive than on Barter: you can send several offers in parallel (e.g. you wanna offer bundle items for bundle items, but you're also interested in bigger items so you just send another offer with unbundled for unbundled items), and canceled offers are visible as well. (I'm planning to eventually add a clean-up job to delete canceled offers after a week or two, to avoid cluttering your history.) Ultimately, remember that you can start sending an offer and keep it online for a while, it'll never be auto-sent or auto-canceled, and the other trader will never know there's an offer being created. I wasn't particularly fond of that Barter feature, so... Just being more permissive is the word here.

On that note... if the tab gets closed, how can I get to the offer again?

NEW: once an offer is accepted, the call to action includes clickable links to sending a PM or adding on Steam. ;)

FIX: unique trades were improperly calculated for the first trader to hit 'complete'. This should either fix itself when you next complete a trade, or can be fixed manually by going to your profile page, and then adding ?unique at the end of the URL. If it doesn't get recalculated and you're sure you did more unique trades, post here. (I insist on 'unique', not 'total'.)

FIX: offer histories on game pages were giving erroneous dates on the 'Ends' column, implying all of the existing offers had just expired. Oops.

As I said on another topic, new: you can now view game trading tags from both sides of an offer. Unfortunately it's... pretty complicated. I tried to adopt color codes (blue = your tags, yellow = theirs), but even those are inverted in a folder places. Yeah really, it's a bit messy. As I call them, works in progress...

NEW: mobile view now shows the clickable LT logo at the top, having made more room by hiding the Notifications and My Messages labels. There are now icons for those. Not happy with them (PM icon is the same as the Offer icon... And default icons on mobile suck, I need to replace them with SVG icons.) But that'll do for now.
