Earlier I found there is something wrong about my wishlist on SG, Barter.vg and Steam.  The Lestrade's.com seems the only one not suffered the damage by it because there is an option not to remove those games from list.  I use Lestrade's.com to recover my automatically removed 430+ games on Barter.vg(poor mechanism), it took me half hour to complete the process though. 

I appreciate it!!!

....so this will affect all the websites that use their API.
TRUE! 

The most annoying thing for me is I have not much giveaways to enter in "Wishlist" game category on Steamgifts.com right now.
Sad.

Thankfully or not, Lestrades keeps its own wishlist .....Hence we were not affected here :)
YES!!  This shows "Nao 尚" is a man of foresight.

LT only removes games from your wishlist when it finds them in your library and without an extra tag or additional quantity in your wishlist. (It still allows you to re-add them automatically, though.)

And yes the reason the games are not automatically removed from your wishlist is because since Steam redesigned their wishlist page, it started giving out incomplete lists from time to time, so the only way to prevent that was to just mark them as removed instead of removing them.
Of course, if you haven't logged into Lestrade's in over six months, your Steam wishlist will be emptied (and re-populated when you log into the site next), but it was necessary to keep the database lean & clean.

You can easily export your wishlist to Barter in a couple minutes (as well as your tradables and blacklist, all neatly tagged when the same tags are supported on BVG, which is basically all but the "custom tag"), there's a tutorial linked within a "?" button in the Export page on your wishlist page, check it out!

It's nice to be able to help, but I'd love it if people would start talking about Lestrade's to their friends lol, you never know, it might help. :-D

Oops!  I forgot this option.   :lol:
This should be a light speed method I think!   :niark:

I've thought about mentioning LT on that SG thread about how I dealt with this issue regarding to wishlisted games lost on trade site.
I may find a right time to do it later if possible.    :)
