Please Fix Trade Website!!

Im tired of these stupid people posting the same item for stupid prices to flood the market websites. The trade channels are filled with bots spamming items for sale. Almost no one actually uses it anymore. You cant trade in global or GGG has a stroke and mutes you. About only thing they seem to care about. So how the hell can you trade anymore!

GGG needs to get on the ball here and make a way to ignore users or put up some kind of system to rate people selling items like this by users so you can bypass these people. Below is a screen shot of a jerk flooding the website with 58 postings of fake sales and before him 23 postings of fake sales. So many fake sales you now cant trade on the website cause there is no more room for search results now. FIX PLEASE... After Harvest and this crap. I wont buy support packs any longer till this fixed.

How about you remove the ignore limit? So i can actually ignore people who i want to ignore.

As much as I like what you're doing for us, this is NOT a solution. It's like patching up a hole left by cancer cells that devoured the last bit of healthy tissue.
Close down the "Feedback" section. Stop pretending you care about feedback outside of reddit.

That is a bit of a band-aid though, isn't it? Wouldn't it be better to find a real solution to the problem?

Also, ignore list limits...


EDIT: BTW, thanks for for once replying in your own forum :).

There is likely a limit for a reason, I do agree though that increasing the limit at least would help in order to combat the amount of spam messages you get from bots nowadays whenever you list an item like Winterheart, Meginord's Girdle or anything else at a low price.

The ignore button in trade sites does not appear to have limits. I have a LOT of people on ignore in the trade site, all of them assumed price fixers and people putting up 1 Perandus Coin items for mirror services. It's not the same as ignoring people ingame, as it only blocks the player's listings on the trade site from appearing. If you happen to have reached a limit on the trade website, then I'm humbled.

That aside, GGG's response is a non-answer, as much as I appreciate someone actually posting here. People are exploiting the trade site in much the same way as people exploited the public group board for the same purposes. Telling people to ignore the problem and use the ignore button doesn't make the problem go away. I'd say it makes the problem worse, as it gives the exploiters confirmation that the devs don't care.
PoE players: Our game has a wide diversity of builds.

Also PoE players: The [league mechanic] doesn't need to be nerfed, you just need to play a [current meta] build!

Betrayal was the best league we had since Legacy. The reward agency is something this game needs, and will be sorely missed.

Oh, maybe the trade site doesn't have a limit - good to know. Just added all players to the ignore list that have a 0.5 coin map listed on Standard. Good start.

Too bad there is no import/export functionality for ignore lists. That way, we could make a community-maintained ignore list.

The issue is that, some users are exploiting the trade api.

Was the trade website made to be used in this manner? If the answer is No, then those players should be warned that it's an exploit of the Trade API. If the answer is Yes, then I will continue to ignore them.
