A few of our members suggested that we add info about a player's signing habits to the screen that lists all the players you have written to (Request Tracking). For Premium Subscribers, we added these optional columns shown in the green and yellow boxes in the screen below:



  • Last Success - date of last recorded success (in yellow box)
  • Success Rate - ratio success compared to total requests (in green box)


  • You can manage it in your preferences here: http://www.sportscollectors.net/AccountPreferences.aspx

    Happy New Year 2018!

    It's been a while since I have posted to the blog, so the beginning of 2018 seems like a good time to get back to it and wish everyone a very Happy New Year.

    THE GOOD - OUR NUMBERS

    Here are the stats as 2017 comes to a close:



    The cumulative numbers are amazing, but these 3 things are worth noting for me:
    • 1.25 MILLION SUCCESS tracked in our database, HOLY COW. Never in my dreams could I have imagined we'd get there when I was coding away on the Request Tracking database roughly 19 years ago.

    • 50,000+ members and almost 10,000 subscribers. SCN is the biggest community for sports autograph collectors anywhere, and you all make that possible.

    • The community has made 197,657 completed collector-to-collector transactions in our Trade Manager.


    THE BAD - DAY OF DOWNTIME

    We suffered our first major unplanned outage. On December 27, 2016 at 3:51 AM, the hardware that runs this site failed massively and was completely unresponsive. The techs attempted several things, but multiple hard drives failed at once and any data on those machines was lost. This event caused the site to be offline for the 27 hours.

    Every night we back up all of the data you enter into our database and photos you all upload, so we were able to bring the site back. We appreciate everyone's patience.

    Everyone who had an active subscription or had tried to renew when the site went down, we proactively added an extra 7 days to make up for the day of downtime. I just want to thank everyone for all of the encouragement, support, concern.

    SOME MORE GOOD - LOTS OF DATA, PLAYERS, COLLECTORS, FEATURES

    1. All the team rosters in all four sports are up to date 1948-Present.
    2. We added over 3 million card entries to our Card Set wantlist feature to get all four up to date with the 2017 editions.
    3. Enhanced the team and Hall of Fame Sigs by Mail to allow for filtering and sorting.
    Thanks for another fun and eventful year everyone. You guys make this the best community I could ever want as a fellow sports collector.

    Player Wantlists

    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:
