Original Post

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 the info, and thanks for all the work you do for the site and the community KR155E!

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.

Keep up the good work!
