100 MILLION Items on Colnect Collectors Inventories

Yes, One Hundred Million items marked on collectors' inventories. As a community, it's wonderful to see how active everyone is in collecting and interacting. After all, this is what Colnect is made for, and it only goes to show that it is truly working.


What does this number mean? It's the accumulation of all items marked for swap on Colnect, all the items marked on the collections of Colnect's members, all the wish lists, all the custom lists. You can say it's the accumulation of all the collecting wealth, collecting hopes and aspirations of all the collectors on Colnect. This makes this inconceivable number even more impressive.

Colnect collectors have 40 million different physical items in their own collection. That's without including multiple quantities of the same item that a specific collector may have. So physically, there are lot more than only 40,000,000 items.

Additionally, there are now 8 million different physical items on collector swap lists. These are 8,000,000 opportunities for tens of thousands of collectors on Colnect. Even greater than that is the number of wish list items which is nearing an incredible 50 million, demonstrating once again that collectors will always have the ambition to find more and create better collections. Swaps are a major part of the Colnect community and social activity. In this day and age, it is an actual physical connection made between collectors on different points on the globe and it is the foundation of Colnect.

Looking at the numbers, you can find many more other curious statistics. For example, for every item on the catalog, how many collectors are marking it? Well, we can see that, on average, the Coins category is the leader in this case. An average of 85 collectors have marked a given item in their collection and an average of 178 have marked it on some list. This is great for Colnect because of another useful resource it has, the Item Score. The item score relies on data from the collectors themselves, The more marking, the more data, the more accurate the score.

We can see how much knowledge, connection and strength we can gain simply by marking the lists. So what else is there to say than - mark away! May the swaps roll on :)

New: See Collectors' Inventory Notes on Item List

As collectors looking to exchange, trade or just look around, browsing collections of other fellow collectors- you need to look at the exact details of the items, look at the collection itself. Now this has been made easier with the help of Personal Inventory Notes. You can now see the notes made by collectors when browsing their lists.

Others Inventory

The new information that appears is the public notes made by the collector of the quantity, condition and any additional free text notes they have added about the item in their collection. Simply go to a collectors page, look at their list and you will notice that new information now appears along the item details, marked in a separated colored box.

Previously, public inventory notes where only available on the single item pages of the catalog, together with all collectors that have this particular item. Now you can also see it on collectors' individual list.

Come take a look, browse some collections, and let us know what you think :)

Colnect 2013 was Fun - version 2014 is going to be so much more!

They say that the way you start a year, is the way it will be for the rest of it. If that saying has any truth to it, judging by the amount of activity and newly added improvements, it seems Colnect is getting ready for a blast of a year to come :)
Lottery Ticket "Happy New Year!"
So what did we have in this year of 2013?

This year must have gotten some good luck when we celebrated our catalogs reaching 1,111,111 collectibles, which is seven lucky numbers one. Since then almost 300,000 additional items have been published on the catalogs.

This year had many new categories joining, from Lottery Tickets to Medals, from Drink Labels to Video Games, and from a familiar game changing Functional Cards to a the sister catalog to Teabags - Tea Labels.
Drink Label "Kruger Pilsner", from the new catalog
The New Year 2014 is now expected to bring with it New Categories that were waiting in the wings to be launched. We will have the highly anticipated Sports Cards category, and also Paper Clips, Milk Cup Lids, Kids Meal Toys and Music CDs. Many more were already suggested and are sure to join in the upcoming year.

Functional Card "Happy New Year", from the new catalog
There could never be too many helpful features and additions. In everything having to do with collectors and Colnect, the more helpful tools is definitely the merrier. We've just now added some cool helpful hands to the Inventory Notes. That's not the only feature we've added though, we did much more throughout the year. We've opened up the Personal Customs lists to all, so you can put your collection any way you'd like. We parsed the seas and divided the collectibles into Continents. We've made it easy to find items through Face Value. We sped things up with Quick Filter options. We've diversified the catalogs with adding Variant support. We even put a looking glass right into the catalog and added a Zoom into the pictures.
Medal "Lottery Ticket", from the new catalog
Each collectible category is unique and has it's own specific needs. Many categories got tweaked and improved, decorated and streamlined. You can see that on the Postcards category that finally had Theme Collectors give out a sigh of relief, Phonecards that has split in two, following much debate, and Hotel Key Cards that got a cool new Aggregation Feature added to it's catalog.

Our community kept reaching new heights, we have marked the occasion of having 56789 collectors on Colnect, and had the opportunity to thank the 666 contributors on Colnect making it a better place for collectors every day.
Tea Label "1 De Beste", on the new catalog
Finally, December ended on an especially heart warming note, when the wonderful Colnect Coordinators, were able to gift Free Premium Memberships to some 100 happy collectors.

Colnect has been preparing to welcome the New Year in style and festivities. It has been an eventful December, that will undoubtedly lead to an exciting January 2014, full of new features, new categories, more options and more collecting.
