Collectors corner

Post by 3DOKid » Sun Feb 06, 2011 9:44 am

Just had a thought. Would people like their own threads for their collections. I know I would. Perhaps a dedicated 'Here is my collection" forum with your very own thread? You can post in here when you update it.

Just a thought.

As a concept I don't mind it, but these forums already have an insane number of stickies to cross each and every timd.

That's not a bad idea Kid, we can give it it's own area. Oh and don't worry Vance, I've been thinking of cleaning up the stickies lately.

I think this is a great idea.

As it stands now, the 3DO collection thread is only going to get more cumbersome as more and more collections are appended to that thread.

A dedicated collection forum will also make it much easier to search collections by owner.

I notice grand_barbare collection today became even more impressive, but due to loading times, and pages and stuff, it's not easy to appreciate it.

The stickies need moving to separate forum and replaced with 'go here first' or something. 3DO Experience is the grand master of this type of stuff -- so I'll just go with her thoughts.

Yeah I was going to talk to you privately about moving the stickies to a "top topics" forum or something like that.

Sorry I would have done the collections by now but there was a family emergency but all is turning out ok. I'm still coming down off of the emotions. Hopefully I can get to the collections this weekend. Some people like barbare will automatically get their own thread, others will be asked if they want their own.

Glad to hear that everything turned out ok. I was just thinking the other day of how it had been a while since you had lasted posted (at least a while for you, as you visit hear quite religiously :wink: )

Thanks for the kind words, after I finish reading the new posts I'm going to clean up the stickies.

Stickies are cleaned up, I'm working on the Collector's section. I need to start sending out some PMs. :roll:

Good thinking, and then another sticky on the appropriate use of stickies.

Altought I won't post my collection yet, there's a lot of great consoles to be bought yet. (Yes Dreamcast, I'm looking at you!)
