Tonight at 6:00pm CT (7pm ET, 4pm PT) the gates will open and you will be able to call dibs on items in the beta seed swap.

Please remember: this is a BETA system and there might be bugs. The claiming area is highly complex code and therefore, there may be bugs.

It might even happen, that I have to stop, reset and restart the trading, if a catastrophic bug occurs. So please know that ahead of time. Smiling

You should get a system message tonight letting you know that trading has begun.

If you have questions or problems, please do report them to me! Smiling

Exciting! A "go-live" event!

Will we be able to pick from a page using the search rather than scrolling through the long list? If I search a specific plant will there be a way to select it?

It will be the exact same page you've been using to view the items, and for building your trade lists.

You will not be notified of extra dibs. They will simply appear. When you go to the trading screen, it will tell you at the top how many tickets you have.

Yes, that's the one.

Sometime tomorrow I'll make it so that you can view who has currently called dibs on your items, so you can get a sense of how you're doing.

Hurray! I was thinking we weren't going to know this until the very end; I'm really happy that we'll get to see as we go (so I can get my stuff organized - in case anyone wants any of it Whistling )

Can you call dibs from your wish list, or only the master list? Sorry if that's been answered already.

It does feel a little like waiting to race out of the barn to the piggy trough. I hope no one falls down. Smiling

Yes, you can call dibs from your wishlist. In fact, I recommend doing it that way.
