Looking at a users collection -- when I try to go to page 2 I see this message:


Important Messages
No listings shown because this user is Not Currently Trading


User: http://gametz.com/user/Kevster/Collection.html

I assume because they have marked this setting. But I should still be able to browse their Page 2 of Collection.

As I understand it, the problem is more that you shouldn't be able to browser page 1 or any listings.

I assumed you could still browse collection if you had that setting turned on -- as I can't make a trade offer for Collection items. And some users may want to just show of their games rather than trade?

Though -- this is how I looked at it. Could be wrong though as I haven't paid much attention to it.

Yeah, I think it's not clear what the right thing to do is here.

I can understand that collection is just for showing off and thus not trading. So, why not show it.
But, the reality is that if someone sees something they want in a collection, they will likely try to make an offer for it. And, maybe that's bad if the person doesn't want to trade right now.

The page for activating Not Currently Trading Mode says:
> This feature will hide your listings from searches and matching and prevent anyone from sending an offer to you. But, you will still have access to GameTZ otherwise. So, you can still use the forums and such.

It doesn't make a distinction for collection listings. So, I don't know.

The code seems to show an effort to allow collections to be viewed, but it's broken. One example of this is that if you do AllAtOnce, it will show the collection (page 1).

But, on the other hand, the mobile site does not show it at all (gives the NCT message if you click collection). The same goes for the New Layout. So, it's definitely inconsistent.


Just curious, why were you looking at his collection?

User had made a post: http://gametz.com/Vintage_Games/kevster-game-sale-... stating they were looking to sell their collection and was in the process of going over what they wanted to part with. So I went over to their page to gauge what type of games they were collecting as I only have interest in some systems. If they had the systems I were interested in I would continue to watch the topic/thread -- if they had something like mostly PC games which I have no interest in, I would of not watched thread / user.

Yeah, odd case. It sounds like he shouldn't be in NCT mode if he's talking about selling his collection.

Anyway, I may try to make it so you can see collection in NCT mode.

I doubt it matters a lot either way, but I'd like to at least make it more consistent.

OK, I made a fix so it will show collection more consistently in NCT mode. You should be able to see page 2 now... Also, mobile and new layouts will show collection too.
