    Both Block people on Pokebay

    I'll explain in more detail. Blocking users specifically would mean that none of the items they sell come up on Pokebay for you. Ordering by lowest price does, in theory, enable you to avoid this, but Pokebay is much more useful in time order, not price order. I don't necessarily want to look at everything which is selling for £25,000; I still want to see what's being sold for the tens of millions, I just want to be able to see only those which are being offered at a reasonable price. The problem is arising as there are a number of users - some of whom I think are alts of each other - who are listing things like avatars for hundreds of thousands, regular legendaries for similar prices, and not actually selling 99% of them. This means that for significant periods of time, that's all you can see on Pokebay. Being able to block those users can let you see offers that you deem reasonable, making Pokebay a more useful function. If I had to say how I'd do it, I'd potentially have it next to the regular block button on their profile, or have a little cross next to their name on Pokebay. Then have a tab either on the members tab or on the pokebay part which shows your blocked users. Being able to filter by certain prices means that you can choose what sort of items you want to target. Putting in a minimum of 1,000,000 because you want to have a look at events, for example. Or a maximum of 3,000,000 because that's all the money you have so don't want to see things which you can't afford. Creates a for efficient buying and selling environment. On a separate point, if there are users who you see offering great trades or whatever other reason. It could be potentially useful to be able to make them a 'favourite trader', which highlights there trades when they come up. I'm on a roll here so I'll offer one more having a notification which informs you when a watched auction is, say, 5 minutes or 30 seconds away from ending could be really useful too, otherwise the watch section is actually a little useless currently, outside of keeping track of something selling a few days away from when you originally saw it. Sorry for the essay haha! Hope this is useful.
  4. There are certain users who just spam things at ridiculous prices which block up Pokebay. It would make buying much more enjoyable if you could filter out users that you don't want to buy from. Another option I wouldn't mind seeing is the option to put in a max/min price filter to be able to narrow down on what you're after a little bit easier!

    Pokémon Vortex 10th Anniversary


    Been playing on and off since Crater in 2005. Mad that I still keep coming back. Keep up the good work Patrick.
  7. Yeah this is the conclusion I came to. There seems no logical reason that the average should be that high. The presumption about high uniques meaning a low average was wrong and poorly thought out, I do concede that. But the user doesn't have anything exceptionally high and only a few above the average. Just struggle to see how they can have over 900000 average with that.
  8. User Cherriehall, currently ranked 6th on the UK leaderboard has an average exp of ~988,000, meaning this has propelled her to the top of the board despite relatively few battles/uniques. She has a total of 46mil exp, therefore, would have had to have around 50 total Pokemon ni order to have that average exp. She has over 2000 uniques, so this obviously is not possible. Is this a calculation bug or did she win a contest or something?

    Feedback 2 Issues Encountered

    Thanks for the reply, Patrick! 1. Just wanted to make sure you were aware of the issue! 2. Yeah I’ve been thinking about this one for a while. ‘I don’t have’ filter would be nice. Pokédex order filter when changing team could work as a catch all fix?
  10. Hi guys, I'm a bit of a veteran when it comes to this game, having played back when it was Pokémon Crater 12 years ago or whenever that was around. There are two things in particular which are increasingly frustrating right now and very off putting for the game. Selecting moves - This doesn't always register. I'm posting this because I just lost out on a Mystic Shaymin Sky as a result of this. I selected Solarbeam to be used from my Dunsparce which being x4 not very effective would have not killed it. However, it selected my top move of Trump Card instead and knocked it out. Incredibly annoying, not sure why it happens. But this has happened a lot since V4 came around and occurs with item selection too. (I know this is a bug but I wanted to combine it with an actual bit of feedback/suggestion.) Evolving - It used to be so easy to know what to evolve. Having the whole Pokédex on a list meant you could scroll the whole way down and see which ones you need. Now you have to just know in advance what you need in order to check. I don't have the motivation to cycle through 70 pages of Pokémon. It's incredibly tedious and is massively decreasing my play time as I'd love to get back into collecting but this is impossible under the current system. Otherwise, wanted to say good work on V4 so far. Although it's a little too close to Facebook for my liking, I understand the reasoning behind that. It's very clean looking and ultimately has been optimised which is good to see as it finally looks like a professional site - coming a long way from when I started. Hope this gets read and I apologise if it's been brought up before. Thanks, Chris
