It would be great to have a Wish List functionality on here, like Amazon has, but for D&D collectibles.

Just a thought :D

A sticky item at the top of 'classified' would be good. Users could be asked to enter one entry only, and update 'edit' it as and when they wanted new items. Sellers could give it a quick skim before posting stuff on eBay, and provided people weren't just posting responses but using PM's, it shouldn't end up like a thread where.

I think a wish list is a great idea, and I'd enjoy participating.  However, I did not understand the quote above.  What do you mean by "sticky item" and "classified".

Thanks,
Keith

The sticky items are the threads above the line that always remain there and don't get moved down or off the page if they aren't used. The classified section is the classified message board off of the main forum page.

Thanks for the clarification.  I feel like a real idiot, given the fact that every time I access the Forum the "stickies" and "classified" message board are staring me in the face.   :oops:

It's been years since I've participated in a forum, and it shows.

Nevertheless, I still think a wish list message board would be a lot of fun.  

One of the reasons I like the Acauem so much is that the majority of us appear to be like-minded collectors, but we all have our own particular goals (some collect OD&D, some collect JG, etc).  I find that interesting and nostalgic.

The other reason I like this forum is that I don't get flamed for asking stupid questions.

Thanks,
Keith

Add my vote for a 'Heck Yes!'.  Even if it was nothing more than a sticky in the classifieds.  The only trick to that is that the mods will need to keep it clean.  One post per person, and only your have/want list allowed.  Notice I added the 'have'.  I think it would also be a good idea for people to post, along with their wish list, a list of their trade stock.  :D

I feel exactly the same as you do.

The majority of the people on this board are intelligent, thoughtful, and friendly.  The ones that aren't usually don't stick around long.  And just about everyone here has a great sense of humor.  Go to just about any other forum regarding any other topic and people will flame the hell out of you for making any little mistake.  Being that I was born in the 70's, not only am I a D&D collector but I am also a Star Wars nut.  Now don't confuse me with some of the people that live Star Wars day in and day out.  I love the movies and I have a nice collection of action figures and other memorabilia but I dont collect a lot of stuff and I don't spend my free time building protocol droids or learning the ways of The Force.  But a few months ago I wanted to get some juicy details on Episode III so I go to TheForce.net: Home Page to check out the Ep. 3 spoiler forum.  I signed up and before I even had the chance to post twice I was laughed at for being an '05er.  Basically these nerds that had joined the forum right after Episode II came out were making fun of me for being a lurker.  So not only am I getting flak from a couple of 14 year old punks who probably never even saw the original Star Wars but the moderators were giving me crap because apparently I didnt do a thorough enough search through the thousands of useless threads on the forum and my question had already been posted in an earlier thread.  So....to make a long story a bit shorter, I told them that Star Trek was better and never posted again.  :twisted:   Live long and prosper damnit!   :D

True, overall the forum members here are very nice and helpful, myself excluded.

The problem with adding a sticky in there is that the Classifieds forum currently doesn't allow replies -- stickies included.  I haven't been able to find a mod that will allow replies to the sticky, but not allow replies to regular posts.  And at the moment, I don't want to re-allow replies in that forum -- caused too many problems in the past.

I think it's a good idea, just can't see how to implement it at the moment.

I think we would all be just as happy to have it in the General forum section.  That's certainly better than not having it at all.  :D

Could always go in the Appraisal forum ;)

I was actually thinking of the real deal, Amazon-like, wish list when I suggested the idea, but I'll take whatever Foul's able to provide :D

I'd like to see a thread (maybe a sticky) used for help identifying or verifying information.  For instance, I am about to post a question about a box set that I only need a quick answer for.  Once the first acaeum member posts a reply, that is probably all I will need.  I almost hate to start a thread for just one brief question.

This could be used for map identification, box sets contents, how many counters does "such a product" have, etc.

As long as I'm on the subject . . . the Lands of Intrigue box set contains three booklets.   The first two have covers, Book 3 has no cover . . . is this correct?  It looks a little odd and I just wanted to make sure someone didn't neatly remove the cover to book 3 . . .

Thanks!   :D (Now I don't have to start a new thread) . . . .

One of the books in the City of Splendors box doesn't have a cover...odd, but apparantly they did it more than once...

Boy, I think this is a great idea.  I'm a relatively new collector (aside from the stuff I've had for 20+ years) and sometimes its hard to know exactly what came in a given boxed set, etc.  For example, I recently received a SpellJammer boxed set from a purchase on eBay, and it was difficult for me to determine if the seller had shipped me a complete or incomplete item.  In another boxed set, I received a pair of percentile dice that I don't think were really part of the set, but how to be sure?

This would also be helpful for clearing up little inconsistencies when trying to establish the printing numbers of some of the older items.

So, one vote from a relative newbie for an "Identify and Verify" thread.

Cheers,
Wilfrick

Wilfrick, a good site for determining if something is complete is the TSR Archive - This Personal Web Pages (PWP) site has been discontinued.  It doesn't have super-detailed info on most things, but it's almost always got a basic description of what comes with a set. Very helpful :)

Thanks, I do use that site regularly.  As you say, great with a basic description, but in terms of specifics not covered there, it would be great to have a specific thread to query other collectors.
