Server maintenance completed for June 23rd, 2019

Server maintenance complete for June 23rd, 2019.

Some changes were made to the trade window code. This should fix most problems with the trade window with the exception of when the server and clients are truly out of sync.

Most items that had difficulty trading before should trade without issue now.

If a trade fails and you've already both changed blocks to try again, please let us know.
