Lestrade's premium features to the people!
«  »
Well, I got bored and decided that I'd give every single member access to premium features.

Of course there's no guarantee you'll always be able to access them. But I never monetized the website, and all of the features I hid behind the premium wall have been sitting unused for over a year now.

Here's what new for you guys:

- Three more filters available in your match pages. For instance, you can now limit your match results to games in your tradables or wishlist that are considered 'rare' on the website. (Can be customized to 3, 5, 10 or 20 copies available.)

- Ability to refine search in tag pages. For instance, you can select a secondary tag that all games must also have. You can also specify a tag to EXCLUDE from the search, similarly.

- Ability to filter game lists very finely: in addition to 'in library', you can also filter by: not in library, in tradables, not in tradables, in wishlist, not in wishlist, in blacklist, not in blacklist.

- Custom tradable notes are now limited to 255 characters, rather than 30. Don't abuse that, it would make your tradables less readable. ;)

There may be more features available, but I wouldn't remember them. I already had to go through my main code to list the ones above. ;)
Also, I thought the 'Matches' and 'Takers' buttons in game lists (when selecting at least one checkbox next to a game) were reserved to Premium users, but it looks like I already gave you guys the feature. It's by far the feature I use the most in this list, so it'd make sense that I already gave access to it. I just don't remember.

Anyway, enjoy! :)

Matches and takers is the one I also use the most. Thanks for opening this to others, you can always make it to VIP only afterwords. I think it gives a little incentive for people to join.

I don't know. I'm moving on to other projects and only maintaining Lestrade's these days. (Mostly fixing and updating bundles. I'm spending very little time on fixing the game database, only for important stuff e.g. bundled games.)

It's her another example of a project that's superior in every detail but couldn't find its audience because I was more focused on improving it than advertising it at all. Not advertising worked for me once, big time, but all my other projects failed because no one bothered to help with advertising. It's okay. It's only the third time for me. At least I didn't waste 5 years on it, like I did for Wedge. Only 2 this time. ;)
My next project will probably be a small game. We'll see.
