Filtering out specific users. Not to call into question their past reliability for smooth trades, but some users apparently have every game in existence in their trade lists and all offers I make to them are ignored, despite sign-in dates occurring after the date of my trade requests. I find users like these listed as a match in nearly every game I've trawled the Marketplace for.
Users who have been banned should have their trade and wish lists nuked. Every once in a while I find a trade I want to make, then find a big fat "Banned" on the user's profile and immediately hit the back button, at the same time making me wonder why this data is still in the system.
I'd like to see a "reverse match" system. To attempt to explain how this would work:
The current system lists games from my wish list, and searches the marketplace for any users who have any of my trade list games in their wish list. Selecting games from this list gives me a list of people with that game in their wishlist, and I must then go to each individual person's trading page to see which games of mine they'd want.
A reverse match would list my trade list, and searches the marketplace for anyone who has my wish list games in their trade list. Selecting games from this list would list games I could trade it for, and selecting one of these would list users willing to make that trade. Basically, this would be a system of gauging the best trade I could make with a specific game. To give an example of a similar effect with the current system, if you only have one game in your trade list, using the "Matches" link would only display games you could trade that one game for.
When viewing the list of users for a game I can trade for, I would much prefer their last sign-in date appear instead of their joined date. Their joined date does not concern me in the least, but I check the last sign-in date of every person I intend to trade with, which involves clicking their username in the marketplace list, then clicking it again on the trade assist page. Saving two clicks to find out they were last on CAG in 2010 would be muchly appreciated.
