It only works if you have a 'login' cookie currently active. Otherwise you're done. Try to see if you're still logged in on your mobile phone or on another browser, so that you can clean up your lists and have a chance to update your profile comment to say good bye & invite people to join Lestrade's.

There is really nothing else we can do... After nearly 48 hours in that situation, it's looking bleak. It's very unlikely Barter will ever allow anyone new to participate.

I really, REALLY need to get my trading system done! I'm so stressed right now.

Sad that barter is going down sooner than everyone's expected, but don't get stressed.

Thanks for all the work so far. LT will get there :)

Akylen, we all expected Barter to go down in early November because that seemed to coincide with the anniversary of its hosting. We were all surprised that it ended up surviving for a few more months.

theemu (gosh I hate that giant 'M' which can screw up page layout, I guess I have to thank Mac420 for that idea :lol:), I don't know, this whole thing came exactly the day after I decided to take an extended break from trading (for a very trivial reason), so I don't really 'miss' sending offers for now, but I know at various points last year I would have been through withdrawal symptoms if I weren't able to send offers... :^^;:

Oi, I shed muh horns for you Nao in order to facilitate your formatting. xD I knew how much it bothered you on barter (let alone lestrades)!

Eheh.
Actually I was using your account to test the limits of utf8 encoding on Lestrade's. I was surprised you changed your name.

BTW I think I had a pending trade offer for you that ended up in expiration limbo... I think you didn't even read it :P

Actually I didn't mind the name change, with it presents the opportunity to post my scores on the games that don't have 'steam' leaderboards. I'm glad it served some purpose to you as well. xD

In regards to the expired trade offer on barter, your correct, I didn't get an opportunity to view it nor any of the other 25+ offers from other folks that have expired along with it.  Apologies to everyone involved, I haven't been available to trade the past month and now that I've returned I (as well as most others) can't login to barter the past few days, and its almost assuredly to remain in that sad and unfortunate state.

At least, in due time, we'll have a proper trade system replacement here Nao, but not unless you burn yourself out ere long! :geek:

You can use my account to test the utf8 encoding, because my nickname is Chinese character. :eheh:

No worries man whose name I won't try & pronounce[1], I'd already fixed the bug I was looking for. ;) (I was incorrectly linking to @ profile pages with the user name, rather than the account name, in one specific spot.)

Mac, you can still view your expired offers and do them through good old Steam chat... ;)
 1. White-something-man-child...? I'm not well versed into simplified hanzi so the second one is a mystery to me and I can't bother to google it.

Barter is no longer sorting titles A-Z. They are all messed up -_-

You mean your existing login status, right? You didn't actually attempt to sign in through Steam and get redirected to a working site..?

I think you have changed sort-mode without realizing it.
Click 'Title' on any gamelist and it changes the default sort-mode back to A-Z.
Also this looks normal to me: https://barter.vg/search?q=view+all+Steam
Thanks a lot! Didn't see that.
It all started with the offers and since there was no sorting option there, I kind of missed it completely.
I now realise the ordering on the gameslist is connected to the ordering of the offers, which is kind of interesting actually.
