8th International Mathtrade

Recommended Posts

 

All good ideas. Perhaps you can run the next mathtrade and use your own ideas. But, as you said yourself, it is up the the organizer to decide the parameters and he has graciously done so for this one!

 

I was (and am) merely wondering about the reasoning behind some of these decisions. they could be such that even if I did run another math trade again mysefl, I might want to use those same parameters too.

 

The decisions on limitations to the trade were not entirely arbitrary.

 

- I am limiting the trades to just those items that are considered geocoins -- trackable or non-trackable -- to ensure that everything on the trade list can be discussed openly in this thread.

 

- I am limiting the number of coins per person to 50 because of a number of emails I received after an earlier trade. A few participants posted long lists of coins and ended up with lots of trades. This ended up costing one participant a lot more in postage than they were prepared for. Other participants thought it was unfair that so many trades went to those who had many more coins to offer. So I came up with the 50 coin rule to try and be fair without being overly limiting. And to also protect people from unexpected postage bills.

 

- The limit of one unique coin per person is to prevent vendors or designers (myself included) from listing a bunch of XLEs or AEs.

Thanks for explaining Hagelslag Spy!

Your points make sense, I'm glad I asked! I guess this way the 'small traders' (like myself, haha) will not get snowed under completely by the major league players.

Email sent because I can't access the google doc. Help!

 

Never mind. I got it figured out...I'm just a little slow.

Is there a way to trade in this program when you don't want a particular geocoin but just coin's with animal's

 

in the next stage, you will not only get to decide which coins you would like to trade for, but which coins you would consider trading for each individual coin.

edited to add, i guess i should see if i have any traders with animals

Oke but that's not wat I mean sorry

 

I do'nt want to trade : an Carousel horse gold (particular coin ) but just coins with any animal.

 

For Chuck.

 

Kan ik ook ergens op de Google lijst (in de volgende fase) vermelden dat ik niet op zoek ben naar een bepaalde coin maar gewoon naar coins met dieren daar op ?.

Hopelijk snap je mij .

You will be able to make a list of coins with animals. Then use that list to trade your coin with.

 

There will be more explantion when we get into that stage. Like how to make the list and use it.

I'll help you figure it out when we get to that stage, if you want. But in the end you have to specify yourself which coins are animal coins and which are not. This cannot be derived automatically from the name of the coin.

Olaf in de coinlijst geef je de coins op die zou willen ruilen. Nadat iederren zijn coins geplaatst heeft kijk je in de lijst welke je zou willen ruilen voor je eigen coin.

Als je geen coin ziet die je zou willen hebbn ruil je je eigen coin niet.

Mail mij anders maar.

As long as the dates don't get pushed forward, I think I am safe to enter 3 different AE coins into the trade. The fourth probably won't be in my hands until late February at the earliest (based on the way that vendor does sales) so I'll be leaving that one out.

cut and paste this

where the first part is the links http address and the second part is the text that you want showing.

 

Huh?

 

Isn't there just a button to click or something?

 

No button to click that I could find in the toolbar hence having to cut and paste. I'm assuming that you wanted the links to the artwork on the lastest ones that you posted.

remove links at OP's request.

I'm gonna have to back out on this one this time. I have a lot going on within the next couple of months and haven't been on the forums much like I use to. I hate that I'm going to miss this :sad:

I sent my e-mail expressing my desire to enter this next math trade. I LOVED my coins I got last math trade. I will be adding my coins to the spread sheet this week. Hope for great results this round too!

PHASE 1: Coin entry is officially underway. We already have over 600 coins in the list from 20 participants. Since over 60 people have asked to join the trade I suspect this number will rise. :)

 

Oh, and if someone could add a Dutch 2008 Halloween event coin, I'd appreciate it. ;)

Yes, those would be it. I C&Ped and placed into a file on my pc. Could you edit your post to take out the links? I'm not ready to announce those coins in the forums yet without sample pix. Math trade peeps are getting the advanced look. Thanks.

Asking moderators to remove the http addresses from post. Too late to edit :(

My coins are in.

I know it's late in the game and I'm still not sure I can make up a list in time and get my coins into the spreadsheet (if accepted) but I sent you an email anyway as I wouldn't mind giving it a try. If it's just too late I can wait for the next one. Again, I might not make it anyway so will leave it to your discretion.

 

I haven't been around for a while so I may not even know what most of the coins listed are anyway.

I remember from last year that it was possible to group "incoming" coins, so that you would only get one of the coins in a group (maximum :)).

 

Is there a way to group "outgoing" coins, so that only one of them trades? To be specific, I've ordered two Mehndi Mandala coins, I'd like to trade one of them, doesn't matter which one. Can the system trade the one that gets me the best trade?

 

Or perhaps I could make only one entry, and specify that the person who gets the trade, gets to choose which version (s)he wants?

 

Of course, if I don't have the coins in hand by the trade list submission deadline, I won't list any trades for them.

Since I'm hoping to see some more coins in the list I just want to point something out.

 

Including your coins in the list doesn't obligate you to trade them... it gives you the opportunity to trade them.
