Is there a way to regularly auto-sync with Barter?

Besides Barter sync, wishlist items would be better managed if they were to be removed automatically without intervention.
?
They *are* removed automatically when they show up in your Steam library. But first they're flagged as removed, and then when you visit your wishlist, the items are removed automatically, and you're given the opportunity to re-add them. You do visit your wishlist tab from time to time, right..?
I could do it on any page (with a bit more work), but I'd also risk showing it on a page that you're not paying attention to, e.g. a forum page or even the homepage, some may ignore it completely.

My experience is that every time I go to my wishlist and it has been updated from steam I get something like this:
"X games that were imported from your Steam wishlist are no longer over there. Do you want to remove them from your wishlist here, or keep them?"

So I have to press "Remove ALL from wishlist" all the time. This is something that is done for me in Barter. I find this behaviour more pleasant. One less thing to worry about.

I had a look and, auto-removal happens when you actually press the 'Sync from Steam' button on Wishlist or Library tabs. Either way it'll delete wishlisted items that are found in your library, and offer you to re-add them immediately.
If the auto-sync was done without your input, then it'll wait for you to go to the Wishlist tab and ask for feedback, because if you go there (e.g. through adding multiple games to the same time to your wishlist from a bundle), you're slightly less likely to notice the messages posted over there than if you actually asked for a sync. So I'm not doing it for you, yes. Well, I do, once you confirm it's what you wanted.

All I wanna say is, Barter isn't as transparent or practical about wishlist handling, so... Maybe you should consider LT's way the 'proper' way to answer to the needs of every kind of trader..? I mean you *can* simply press the button and as soon as you see your browser sent the data (e.g. says 'loading' or stuff like that), you can do whatever else you want, the data is saved. It's really not a biggie...

I see. If you have the time, would it be possible to provide an option in the profile for someone like me that prefers auto-removal? I have never had a need to keep wishlist items. That would caters both audiences :)

Just a small note about auto-sync.
Do you guys realize that overnight some games that are, like, 1:80 out of users' laziness to sync their tradables, will become 50:80 games and thus lose a lot of 'uniqueness' to LT users?
Not that LT users would be silly enough to consider ONLY ratios when trading, but it *is* an important matter when you can send tons of offers to everyone who offers it, *or* a ton of offers to the single user who owns it here...

I'm a bit on the fence here. I'm more interested in getting games than getting rid of mine, but OTOH I spend most of my trading days trying to retrade my duplicates, whatever I get in exchange. (I probably have the record number of 'fillers' in my wishlist.)
