I’ve been dormant here for a long time (many login issues with little help from the password recovery tool), but I’ve managed to log in and peruse the updated site. Looks familiar, but also pretty fresh!
I can’t seem to find the old collection tracking/reporting in my user profile anymore, and I can’t seem to find any News or Forum posts talking about it when I use the search. Other than discussions from 10 years or so ago.
Is that feature gone? If not, how can I access/find it? If it is gone, are there plans to bring it back?
It looks like it’s gone, as I can’t find it anywhere. I really enjoyed that feature and the checklists, but I know KR155E will be updating in the future, we just gotta give him time to add back some of the old-site features that people enjoyed. making a thread or poll of what people want added back might be a good idea to see what people want added back and what people didn’t care much for, I think that would probably be best in keeping the website enjoyable for everyone moving forward.
Hey Fwow13, glad you found your way back! I hope the new site will be a much more pleasant experience.
There is currently no collections feature on the new site, but it will be back eventually, with the old site’s collections imported. Actually, I had a working implementation, but it was really lackluster – I can do much better.
– Better presentation
– Better image upload
– Better integration with site (“Collect” button on game pages)
– Status per item (Incomplete, complete or sealed)
– Multiples (maybe)
– Allow collecting of merchandise
– Allow collecting of unlicensed stuff like HyperFlash32 or “official” physical homebrew releases
Let me know if there’s any other things I could add. 🙂
Thanks for letting us know that the collections will get imported eventually. I always liked to see the collections of all the vb-members. Also the ranking system with who has the most complete collection, I really like the most.
Still, the new site really looks fresh and modern, but I must say that I also liked the oldschool/retro look of the previous website.
