I have some Holiday Commodities I'd like to sell, but due to the inoperative nature of the Exchange, I can't get them to show using any combination of filters?

Is ther any way to reliably search for Targ Fur Earmuffs for example?

When searched by Price/ common, I see the lowest is 20,000ec. I normally just post the lowest as I hate being underbid, but this time I posted a pair at 19990ec to see if it would show. Nowhere to be found on the Exchange?

Can't they just make these visable under commodities?

How did the existing entries get there, pre-patch?
If your post is anything like, "I have a sandwich so you can't be starving" it's time to rethink posting.

I don't think you can see your own stuff listed on the Exchange. Maybe you can, but I've never seen the stuff I've listed.

If you have those items, pop them in the search bar, and change the rarity to common or uncommon (depending on the ornament). Then search.

But you won't like the prices, I regulary see them all as cheap as 1 mil EC.

Basically, the exchange is broken. You're better off selling your items in a private trade than through the exchange until Cryptic finally fixes it.

What about the Exchange is broken? I keep hearing this. Is this a new thing, or something that's been going on for a while?

The only thing I can think of is that you get lower prices the more specific you get with your filters, which shouldn't matter at all.

It seems that exchange is not working for holiday commodities.
Even though you use all and common/uncommon filter, you may not see what you have posted and the cheapest one is not really that cheap.

Can someone please explain why I see these all over the exchange, but I am unable to sell mine because they don't have a catagory?? this makes no sense to me.

The only thing I can think of is that you get lower prices the more specific you get with your filters, which shouldn't matter at all.
None of the max and min values correspond with that they should be. For example, if you organize by price and then compare that to organized by ascending value or descending value, sometimes the highest one on the price list is in the middle of the one organized by ascending value which makes no sense. And this happens with a lot of other items on the exchange, but Cryptic is too lazy to fix it. It's just a mess and thus, the black market is created. The corollary that follows from that is that because none of the max and min values make sense in any of the lists generated by applying filters, selling becomes impossible. If I sell 40 beads for lets say, 5 million, it's next to impossible to find this in the exchange results, no matter what filter I apply.

Last night, I spent 30-45 minutes trying to find the beads I had posted and gave up after looking painstakingly through all of the lists, after applying each and every filter. None of the results made sense and I couldn't even get a sense of what was up from down in these lists. I finally gave up and said, "Cryptic, you know what? you make me want to just rage quit this game because of how buggy and sloppily put together it is."

Edit: As an addendum to what I've said above: Cryptic's laziness creates problems that beget problems. Because people can't rely on the exchange for a good number of items, they resort to zone chat to sell their wears which results in a lot of unnecessary chat spam. I bet you money that a 1/4 of the chat in the winter holiday zones every night has been people saying something like "WTT: 4 bells for 4 beads."
