Hi,

I love the trade shop, except when I see an open trade I'm interested in, but when I click thru to the seller, they haven't been active on the site for like 1612 days or something crazy.

So maybe open trades could "expire" after 30 days or 60 days with an option for active users to select "renew" or "continue"..

Just a thought??

@quoet199
I'd LOVE this. A 60 day time sounds good to me. I hate seeing those 1000+ day old trades of old items that there's no point in offering on.

On this subject though, I'm SO looking forward to trades being revamped. It's ridiculously difficult to send items around on this site and there's no reason for that.


Suggestions:

-Up to 10 different items per trade, unlimited # of each item in that trade

-The main trade page shows your trade "notes"/whatever you type in the trade

-"Item trade" turned into "Closed Trade" and you can request up to 10 different items (unlimited # of each) AND IcePoints OR IceCash.

-Creating a trade is easier, item names and quantity are listed, ordered alphabetically (it's currently ordered by when you got the item --weird)

-You can leave notes when you offer like when you make the trade

-Trades are no longer on a like 5min waiting time, they automatically get accepted and the items get sent out. This confuses newbies!

-Easier to navigate pages (no drop down menu pls, it looks so bad), possibly a "Show 25 Per Page, Show 50 Per Page, Show 100 Per Page" type system as well.

-Mail icon on trades for easy contacting

-For fun, maybe if you're on the trades page, you can get a little notification when there are new trades up? It could just say "There are new trades!"

------------------------------------

I wonder what other ideas people could have to make trades more fun and easy to use.

I would love to see a feature like this. There are some really nice things sitting in trades that I would love to offer on but the owners are inactive and have been for years.

I also really love Read's suggestions. My favourite by far is having multiple items in a trade as well as being able to offer multiple items on a trade. I love the community and I trust 99% of the users here, but if I am doing a big trade, I would rather see all the items agreed upon to be showing if not for just a guarantee and confirmation of the trade.

Thanks @Read for your fantastic suggested improvements - well thought out and I agree with everything.

@RiverStarr I couldn't agree more! There are so many wonderful storm jars and storm MP's and no current users!! smile_blush.gif

Perhaps if a user has been inactive for more than a year (just as an example), trades could stop showing their trades.

I completely agree with old trades in the trade centre needing to be removed because there have been times I've wanted a specific item and I find it, and yeah the user was last seen over 1k days ago

smile_ohcrap.gif

Going from Read's suggestions, instead of there being 10 items per trade I would've said maybe 5, only because a lot of other pet sites have the 10 item limit, but then I guess 5 items might not line up nicely.

I do like the uniqueness of IcePets unlimited # of X in a trade because that's not on any other site (that I've played on) and I like to be able to do it. As much as its 'annoying' having it like that, please keep that.


A lot of my trades do have notes in them, as they are usually items ordered by other players from my item board(s), and this would be easier if the note was on the front page rather than users having to click the trade to then read the note. - Vice versa, when I'm viewing my own trades that have offers on, it would be nice if I could see this on the reverse screen.

Also if trades on both the trade front and my trades could be layed out in the same direction. I've found that they display one way (top to bottom) on the trade front but the reverse (bottom to top) on my trades view.


Offering ICE cash, could we get it so actual numbers could just be inserted? So instead of the default coin values (500, 1,000, etc) we could say, sell something for 400 IC and there's no coin for that so the user can just input 400 as a number.


Think that's all I have to add here.

I totally agree with @Read that the old trades should be eliminated if the person has not been around in over a year.

I like others' suggestions as well. Having the ability to offer Ice Cash or Ice Points would be wonderful.

The other suggestions I agree with as well.
