I love it! This is one of those things that is so simple,
so it figures Ganz hasn't figured this out yet..
because everything to them is just pixels...

Great idea!

Yup, I agree when it comes to Ganz, they need to use the 'KISS" method....Keep it simple...well, you know the rest

I don't know why Ganz took that feature away.
When I put my cursor/mouse over MY items, it tells me what the items are (but I already know - duh?) so I don't know why it doesn't work for the OTHER person's items.

I'm sure this would help prevent scams and they already had this feature in place before.

Thanks for the great thread. Something needs to be done about the scammers.
I completely agree! I never saw that feature in action as you described it, but it sounds simple and reasonable (and necessary). If it can work on my dock and it has worked before in the clubhouse then I think it should be re-implemented right away.

I stay away from the trading room. I like trading here much better. But since so many people report bad experiences, Ganz should step up and try to prevent unfair trades.

Regarding colored backgrounds and borders: That might start looking messy. It would be tricky to memorize the symbols; why not just use words? Hover your mouse over a picture and you can read EXACTLY what it is -- not just its category. If you start categorizing, what would you do about sub-categories? Many items may fall into several categories and sub-categories (e.g. food - PSF, W-shop, recipe, holiday gift, "retired"; furniture - TC3, W-shop, rare, exclusive, superbed). That would take a lot of colors and patterns to memorize and match up.

Mimzysmom, thanks for continuing the scamming discussion and offering a solution. I agree with the dire need for item identification in the clubhouse (sadly, some traders lie when you ask them) but I prefer the solution described by webcrazy. Ganz puts a lot of thought into the visual aesthetics of WW. The borders would always be there, and wouldn't look artistic. Pop-up words would appear only when you need them.
