Player Wantlists

Comments: 0

Some of our members collect certain players or teams and have been wanting a good way to track the players they need . Inspired by our autographed set collectors functionality, I am happy to introduce Player Wantlists:

You can add a player to your wantlist by clicking on the "Add to Wantlist" link on any player profile page (as shown below in the red box):



Once you have added the player, you can view/remove the players on the new Wantlist page:



You can also add and remove players directly from your wantlist from any team roster page, making tracking much easier for team collectors:



Once you have added a player to your wantlist, that information will be available on your member profile and on that player's profile so other members may be able to help you:

Happy New Year 2014

So I am a little disappointed that this will be my only SCN blog post of the year. But it has been a busy year for the collectors here on SCN. Let's start with the stats: SportsCollectors.Net in 2013

The numbers below tell a good job of how SCN continues to grow year after year:

12/31/13 12/31/12 12/31/11 12/31/10 12/31/09 12/31/08 12/31/07
Successes 972,181 867,521 774,642 673,677 578,826 483,735 378,537
Requests 1,326,224 1,183,261 1,061,146 922,224 798,034 670,300 527,214
Autographed Trade Items 94,851 82,164 72,169 61,976 47,236 29,167 17,841
Message Board Posts 742,147 629,915 515,700 398,082 284,566 201,851 132,334

Premium Members 7,415 6,874 6,290 5,579 4,866 4,161 3,503

We added new things members have been asking for:



The red box in the screen above shows the new function that allows members to assign labels to messages they receive (much like with gmail). This should help make it easier to find and group messages.

The blue box shows new filter options to limit the view of the messages in your inbox.



The orange box in the screen above shows the ability where members can specify labels to associate to a message.

  • So we're closing in on 1 Million successes. I anticipate we'll hit that mark a little bit after baseball season opens and I expect we're going celebrate accordingly - with a nice giveaway for some lucky member.

    I am hoping to make it to the National in Cleveland in August, and hope to see some of you there.

    Thanks for another fun and eventful year everyone. You guys make this the best community I could ever want as a sports collectors.
