ciao guys, a simple question: why don't we improve the info of the site by adding additional notion for each item?
i was thinking that it'd be nice that every item could also have:

* credits (all the info taken from the credit page of the item)
* format (other info such as page format, nr. of pages, roughly indication of weight, nr of handouts or exhibits that could be detachable, nr of staples, and so on...)
* code item and ISBN (where possible, of course)

...i believe that this site is a great resource but it could be even greater if we start improving it...

in case both you and the site admin agree, i'd have a proposal in order to oorganize this work without too strives!

ciaooo

I like your ideas but would have no unique information to contribute.  My "collection" would make other members laugh.   :oops:

I would like to see line graphs or bar graphs of eBay auctions; these hypothetical graphs would show the number and price of auctions so trends could be tracked over time.

If I had to do any of the above, the joy of collecting would get sucked out of me very quickly.

Absolutely agree 100% - that's not what I am here for.

I actually brought something similar to this a year or so ago.  Foul is not interested in oing it for 2 reasons:

1) It would take a ton of extra work on his part and he barely has enough time to update the site as it is now.

2) More importantly Foul does not see the need for it since most of the same information appears for the here: http://home.flash.net/~brenfrow/index.htm

Blackdougal(the owner of the TSR archive) is and has been a contributing member of this site and both Foul and BD have been sharing info back and forth for a long time now. Although the site are not directly linked the cooperation between the two sites owners makes them effectively sister sites.
