Accelerated Growth - 131313 Members Now on Colnect

The Colnect community, ever growing, has now reached 131,313 Members!



To take a quick look back at the way we have come, as a community, we need to go back to August 2009, when we celebrated our first milestone of 5,555 members. From there the community almost doubled in 8 month's time to - 11,111. The community just kept doubling its previous milestone, getting to 20,020, than going to 33,33340,00450,50566,66670,707 until reaching the beautifully round number of 100,000 almost exactly a year ago.

Important thing to note, that the rate of growth in our community in the past 2 years has tripled (!) from the rate of growth in the preceding years.

33,333 members have joined Colnect in the past year, to form our current community of collectors from 150 countries around the world. This means that the amount of collectors joining this year is six times larger than our entire community at the first milestone!

More members, means more collectors, means more collections! In a very fitting number, over 33,333,333 inventory items have been added to Colnect since the last milestone of 110,000,000 inventory items. Inventory items are any item that a member adds to their collection, swap and wish lists.

As the community develops, so does Colnect as a collection management tool and a website to connect collectors. The past year we've seen Colnect dawn a sleek new outfit, added with dynamic sorting, was joined by 2 new categories, Admission Tickets and Holy Cards and much more.

We would like to thank the over 900 contributors that make Colnect the effective tool it is today. The contributors help make the catalogs as complete, accurate and interesting as possible, and are doing great, dedicated work, on their own time, for the benefit of all collectors.

100,000 Collectors 110,000,000 Inventory Items Now on Colnect

We have reached a perfect score! The Colnect members community has expanded to a perfect 100,000 Collectors.
100,000

We have been counting up to this milestone in a rising pace, starting way back in August 2009, just a few thousands, then going up - 11,111, then it took us a year to reach the next step 20,020, climbing to 33,333, 40,004, 50,505, passed the wicked 66,666 to 70,707 and now we are doing a great leap, skipping a few steps ahead into the nice and round 100,000.

These 100,000 collectors all manage their collections on Colnect, which has brought the total amount of items in the Colnect inventories lists to a whopping 110,000,000 items! Each item on this list is a collectible piece someone has, wants to swap or is interested in. That is a satisfyingly great collecting power.
