Nao: You are doing a great job, but LT is right now at about 5% of the features of Barter / ease of use of Barter.
5%? That's harsh... :-/
Well, that's a good opportunity to do a short summary of what LT does well compared to Barter, and what Barter is doing better for now.
Does Barter have a realtime sorting feature? Or even a realtime game search? Does it show you cards+ratings+ratio all at the same time on game lists in offer creation pages? Does it allow you to remove a tradable game directly from its game page? Does it match items within a few seconds? Correctly, does it match items at all? :lol:
What's missing right now is editing lists from list pages, and tagging. I also need to add a little 'x' button next to game previews in offer creation pages, to make it more natural to remove items from it (I feel that 'unchecking the item and clicking Preview again' isn't as natural as I originally envisioned.) And regarding offers, I think it's only missing a fail button, comments, fail reasons, and decline reasons. Generally for the website, I'd also like to include member search and maybe post search into the game search popup.
It's not THAT much. And it'll all be coming in the next few days for the most part (list editing & tagging and easy removal are probably coming first, as Alex is working on a 'decline reasons' user script so that should fill in the void), maybe in two weeks for other elements.
And I personally am missing a bunch of key features (comments, tradeables tags, tradeables count,
You mean quantity?
They're tags, really. They're coming with the rest.
trading for non-wishlist items, last bundles).
Oh yeah, non-wishlist, I forget about those. I really don't do that myself. Last bundles is coming too. 6 months is a long time...
So it's completely understandable (at least in my opinion) that a lot of people are going to use both sites for a while.
Still, they're not going to be able to sync with Barter, because that's how it is. I'm afraid you'll have to manually tag your new items once it's available.
(Actually I was struggling to have a tag editor released at the same time as the rest of the offer system. It wasn't satisfying so I removed my code and I'll be going for an Ajax solution from day 1 instead.)
Unfortunately, as I said earlier, tomorrow I'll have very little time to myself. My wife was kind enough to take care of our kid for several hours but tomorrow she'll be out of town and I'll only be available on my smartphone most of the time. So new features tomorrow are very unlikely, I'll only post bug fixes if they're easy enough.
