NEW FEATURE: Trading Dashboard, Leaderboard, and Trade Manager Enhancements
Saturday, December 5, 2020

What we had was useful, but could be better!

Way back in 2006, we introduced "Trading on SCN" and our Trade Manager. Since then, our community has recorded over 250,000 transaction agreements, making it an extremely popular feature.

While this feature has served our community well, there were some things I though could be better. Today we are launching some needed upgrades based on member suggestions. Thank you all.

Enhancement #1 -Trading Dashboard

When subscribers click on the "Shopping Tools & Trading" tab at the top, they will now be taken to our new Trading Dashboard shown below:

Here you'll be able to see:
  1. Stats for your trades+ your items listed for trade
  2. The trades through the community
  3. Search your trades+trade items
We have moved the Shopping Tools (which I use quite heavily) to the bottom of the left column for now.

Enhancement #2 - The Leaderboard

For quite a while, some of our dedicated members have been manually creating a "Leaderboard" every month and posting it on our message board. It is pretty awesome they went to the effort, so we wanted to help them out with our new Leaderboard Top 50 containing breakdowns of their activity.

Enhancement #3 - Enhanced Trade Manager

Over the years there has been a lot of requests for us to upgrade this feature, below is a screen of what is new:

  1. You can now filter and search your trades!!!!
  2. Trades tracking private signings indicate the player and Signing ID
  3. You can see the Feedback on each trade. The "FB Got" shows the feedback you received and the "FB Gave" shows the feedback you gave.
    The none icon icon means no feedback was given.

NEW FEATURE: Archived Private Messages

We introduced a private message system more than 15 years ago and our members have sent millions of messages to one another.

I was reading a message board post from this past July from wahoo2719 posted the following:

I wish there was a way to do this with private messages as well. I don't like to delete the old ones, just so I can remember who I've dealt with in the past, but I wish I could unclutter my active mailbox by moving older stuff into an archive folder.

I thought this is a great idea and something that bothered me. So early this morning I added this feature to the site:



On the left side, there is a link (highlighted in white) for "Archived Items". You can move items between your Inbox and Archive.

Server Upgrades for SportsCollectors.Net
Sunday, October 11, 2020

SportsCollectors.Net has been consistently growing... And in order to support some of the new features I have been working on behind the scenes, we needed to make some fairly significant server upgrades.

Some of the highlights:
  • more RAM
  • faster CPUs
  • better network (more data transfer)
  • faster storage
  • new (more reliable) DNS provider

In order to accommodate the cutover to new hardware, we had a 40 minute maintenance window this morning (from 1:55-2:35AM EST) where the site was inaccessible. Efforts were made to keep downtime as short as possible - backing up, moving, restoring, and validating all of the latest data took most of that time. This is by far the smoothest migration I have executed in 20+ years of running this site. We appreciate the patience for anyone who was impacted during that window.

Just in case anyone is worried, we are not going to change the price for our premium subscription and we are still planning to keep features from our basic members. The premium package has been a really great value at $14.99 for the past 15 years and I have no plans to change that. I'm picking up the added expenses as part of my contribution to our fun hobby - you guys deserve it.
