We want to make it easier for you to find the autographs you need and to sell what you want to sell.
We're opening 2 types of categorized private groups:
There will be Wanted and For Sale groups in a most of the popular collecting area to make them even quicker and easier to use.
Not only will there be separate groups for Hollywood, Music, Sports, History, Space and Comics. Hollywood will have a separate group for modern, vintage and SciFi. Music will have separate groups for Modern Music, Classic Rock and The Beatles. Sports will have separate groups for Baseball, Basketball, Football, Hockey, Golf, Racing, etc.
You won't have to keep checking groups to see what's new. Each group will let you subscribe to email notifications of new listings in that group. If all you care about is buying classic rock, then you can just sign up for notifications in the Classic Rock Wanted and Classic Rock For Sale groups. Or you can follow all of them if you want.
The Wanted groups have been configured and are going online in a few minutes. They don't open for viewing or use until Friday but you can request to join the ones you want now.
The For Sale groups are being configured tonight and you can request to join them once they're online too.
They'll all have the ol' Buy/Sell/Trade image for starters.
I better get back to work!
This is great news! I look forward it's grand reopening. Sounds like it is going to be a much improved version of the original board.
Great announcement! Like Joe W. and others, I'm looking forward to it's launch. Thanks for all of your hard work in making this possible, Steve!
Great stuff.. Well done Steve
The groups will open Saturday afternoon or evening, not today. We need to be able to authenticate group members to provide more safety.
With auction houses charging 25-30% commission and Ebay/Paypal raising fees, this will certainly help collectors save money when they buy and sell. Thanks Steve!
Thanks Steve for taking the time and making the effort!!
very cool thanks
The Want List groups are open and the For Sale groups will be ready probably late tomorrow. You can join the Wanted ones now but you'll have to be approved, which I'll do several times during the day. We're having the family Hanukkah party tomorrow afternoon and evening and I'll be prepping for that and at it most of tomorrow.
Here's a link to Groups, with the Wanted ones first:
Do we have to be approved for each category individually or does one sign up cover all the different wanted groups?
Individually due to the limitations of the system.
