Hi, Dave,

Right now I'm in two swaps that have overlapping enrollment but not overlapping trade periods. I want to be able to decide what to offer in each swap, but it's a little difficult to compare the dibs on the seeds I'm offering in each trade.

I was wondering if it would be possible to add the element "# wishlisted" to the active items in the tradelist for an individual member in each swap column so we can view, add, and remove an item from either swap where we see demand.

Hope I described that clearly...

You can go to the Access the full tradelist for this swap and then select your name from list and refresh view. You can then see how many times your things have been wish listed.

Yes, but that's only for the swap I happen to be looking at at the time. Since I'm in two, I'd like to be able to see and easily compare what's been wished for in both swaps.

Can you open two windows at a time? That way you could look at them side by side.
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

That would actually need to be three: one to view dibs for each swap, and one for the tradelist management page so I can check and uncheck as I go...

You should be able to open 3. Couldn't you do that if they were 'tabs' rather than 'windows'?

Certainly I could. Hoping it's possible not to have to do so in the future.

If you only have one screen, just print out one list. I end up printing my wish list before the swap "goes live" so I have everything ordered properly.

IMHO the number of offerings listed for the same seed in two or more active swaps should be independently adjustable of each other.
Currently as one swap listing sells my offering, both swaps list the decreased number of offered seed for that listing down to zero. If quantity offered in second swap decreases to zero, those who "exclude zero quantities' will not see or wishlist my offering in the second swap.

Seems my alternative is to 'remove an item' from the first swap and
edit in the original amount offered in the second swap. The events thread on DND's swap is filled with 'removed' items in the passed two days and the Not From the Seed Rack swap is filled with these same listings, but as 'added an item'.
Or if ten people wishlist my 'Starship Deep Rose' on one swap, and only two seem interested on the other, I should be able to list 8 on one swap and 2 on the other.
