we bouthknow this sight dose not have enough users for the request option to work. you dont understand the trick i was saying i was saying when the buy is about to auto cancel if you bought more then two it will close the acount sales flore so to prevent that to give them time to confirm you must cancel it and rebuy it ones a day for weeks on end so you get it there needs to be an option to message them because i have know idea who im buy from
Yet you're still dealing with the same user each time by doing this. That may give them more time, but it also means you're stopping it from making their account go inactive due to inactivity, because the users who don't accept their trades will get an email to update them that their account was put on hold for inactivity. What you're doing is essentially giving the user more chances than he deserves. If he doesn't accept in the 24 hour period, he will have one more chance to accept. If he doesn't, he's put on hold.
Here's how it works. A user lists a game for trade. Lets say you request that game. He doesn't confirm in the next 24 hours. You're then put back in the queue. You might matched up with the user one more time, but if he doesn't accept this time around, he's put on hold for inactivity.
Cancelling and re-requesting from the same user over and over probably should show you the user isn't going to trade or is inactive. That's why we suggest keeping your request active. If you want to cancel a couple times and re-request, fine by us. But don't do it a ton of times otherwise you will likely never get the game.
I realize the game selection is low at the moment, but this is a game trading site and we rely on users to list games. Sometimes it can be slow, othertimes we see an influx of trading.
Also when a user doesn't accept, your request is not cancelled. When a user doesn't accept or cancels a trade, your request does not get cancelled. You're simply added back to the queue. The queue is where you're place in line for the game. If you're matched with someone, and they cancel, you can then be matched with the next person who has it, autmatically.
I hope you understand what I'm saying, because your method isn't going to help you get the games you want faster. Sticking to the queue is where you have the best chance to get matched again. Cancelling and cancelling to give the same user multiple times to accept doesn't help you, it just helps keep an inactive user up with a listing.
