This forum has been a ton of fun over the past few months since I’ve joined! People are generally kind, responsive, respectful, and helpful.
But it feels like something is, well…missing…
I’m a bit of a hobbiest, so I participate in forums across the web pertaining to other interests apart from yoyo, sinful…I know. On some of these other forums, there is a feature I think would be extremely helpful if it could be implemented here:
It’d be a great way to keep track of a personal collection. Make a record of when you bought or sold a certain yoyo, where you got it from and what your investment was. Add photos and general notes. You could set certain properties of each inventory entry to public or private.
This is particularly popular on forums like Pinside (for pinball). Especially since there is a lot of collecting, maintaining, modifying, buying, selling and trading of pinball machines. Sound familiar?
This could also allow the forums to provide a database of known yoyo releases with pertinent information like original msrp, production dates, photographs, and total quantity of the production run(s). Even though indivudals could/would keep second hand sales private, the database could still provide an average second hand value based on these numbers collectively.
I know this would likely be a considerable amount of work for the developers of this forum, but I believe it would be a worthy addition to an already wonderful platform!
What are your thoughts?
