Hey everyone, I'm looking to gather some feedback on the new(ish) Orphans trading feature in the collection tracker.

(Shinja's announcement here for reference)

From how it appears from my own matches, there aren't very many people using it, but that may not be the case.

A few aspects of the implementation aren't exactly clear, so I'm thinking about writing something up. Just wanted to get an idea how well it is working (or not) for everyone before I do that. Comments are welcome and appreciated.

Thanks BlooMilk

The way it is supposed to work is that if I have a "card only" trade listed, it should only match someone with a "mini only" "card only" want listed, etc. (based on a recent exchange I did, it works as intended)
*edited for stupid typo

In a nutshell:

1. If you have a mini without a card, and only want to find a card, add it to "card only" in the wants column.

2. If you wish to trade the mini away, add it to "mini only" in the trades column.

3. If you are open to either of the above, do both things so you will match people that only did 1 or 2.

That is how I think it should go anyway. I haven't had time to really test it thoroughly.

One of the weird things is that when you look at someone's trades or wants pages, you may see items that show quantity = 0. Those are orphans, but you can't tell whether it is a card or mini unless a comment was entered saying which it is, otherwise you have to cross-check against the matches page. So comments are very helpful there.
